Our goal is, for in stock items, your order be shipped within 3 business days of the day you place it. For example, orders placed on Monday will generally ship by Thursday. Orders placed on a Friday will generally ship by the next Wednesday. Our goal is to get your order to you as quickly and economically as possible. Please select your shipping method based on the following guidelines. Orders often go out in one business day. Please note that the times listed above are time the items are expected to take in transit.
Shipping Options- Continental (U.S.)
Ground Delivery (~1 week)
Parcel Post is our standard delivery method. This is the default option. If you choose Ground Service, you should allow up to a week in transit or 8 business days total. If you would like your order more quickly, there are options for quicker delivery. How long this will take will depend on your proximity to our shipping location in Cincinnati, OH.
Priority Mail (~2-3 business days)
For an additional charge, you can ensure your order ships via Priority Mail. Priority Mail packages generally ship within 2 business days of the order being placed. We suggest only choosing this option if you are in a particular hurry, as we upgrade many of our shipments to faster methods without charging you extra (see below for Discretionary Upgrades). Please keep in mind that Priority Mail is not guaranteed service. According to the U.S. Post Office, it normally takes 2-3 business days in transit. But, they do not guarantee this. Also, while we include Delivery Confirmation on all of our Priority Mail packages, this is not the same as tracking. The Post Office often does not update their website with the status of the package until after it is delivered and they cannot tell us where it is during transit.
2nd Day Air Service
* Available to street addresses in the Continental U.S. only. Guaranteed by the carrier to arrive within 2 business days (after being shipped) and includes tracking service.
Please email us with confirmation for any 2nd Day Air orders. This allows us to flag your order and move it to the front of the queue.
Express Delivery (Overnight to most areas)
** Available to street addresses in the Continental U.S. only. Generally, we try to get it out the next day. If you need an item overnight, we will do our best to get it out to you. But, you should allow that it will ship the next business day. It's best to email if you place an Express Delivery order so that we can make our best effort to prioritize it over the other orders. Express Delivery generally includes tracking and is guaranteed by the carrier to arrive by the end of the next business day (after being shipped).
We gladly ship to APOs. We are honored to be able to provide this service for those in the military. APO orders will go out via the U.S. Post Office. Most APO orders will ship via Priority Mail (at no extra charge). Unfortunately, Delivery Confirmation and Tracking are not offered by the Post Office for APOs.
Post Office Boxes
You must choose this option if your order is being shipped to a Post Office box. If the option is not chosen, we will make the adjustment for you.
Discretionary Upgrades for Ground Delivery Orders
At our discretion, we provide free shipping upgrades to a Ground Carrier that provides tracking or to Priority Mail with Delivery Confirmation. For very small orders, we generally upgrade to First Class mail. If you would like to ensure your order ships via Priority Mail, please select the Priority Mail option. Whether or not we provide discretionary upgrades depends on your order total, the weight of the order and your location relative to Cincinnati, OH.
If you have any special needs (like Saturday or Sunday delivery), please call and we will try to accommodate you.
Alaska, Hawaii and U.S. Territories
Please choose this option if you live in the U.S., but outside of the Continental U.S. This is for delivery via the U.S. Post Office. If you have requirements for faster delivery, please contact us.
