We appreciate you and your order so much! We have listed several common shipping questions below. Should you need any assistance, please let us know as soon as possible at email@example.com.
After I place an order, how long does it take to ship?
Standard Orders: All orders will be shipped within 1-3 business days of the order being placed. Tracking will be provided and sent to the email or phone number provided at checkout or account creation.
NOTE: We are closed on Monday(s) to spend time with our family. Order packing resumes Tuesday - Friday (9 am - 5 pm daily) and for a small window of time on Saturdays (8 am - 10 am).
Delays: We strive to ship all orders in 1-3 business days; however, that is an estimate. In high demand times, it can take 5-7 business days to fulfill orders. In that case, we will alert customers via the banner at the top of the website screen.
- Pre-Orders: All items that are pre-orders will ship once they arrive in stock. Should you place an order with in stock items and pre-order items, we will hold all items until the pre-order arrives. Pre-order dates can be found under the item’s description and can be indicated with “Pre-Order” in the item’s title. If you would prefer these to be shipped separately, please reach out to us for shipping costs.
