Payment Options

We accept the following payment methods: Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover & PayPal.

Shipping Information

Orders of non-custom items are typically processed within 2 to 3 business days from when they are placed. Occasionally, an item may be on back-order requiring a few more days to complete processing. Shipping charges are calculated automatically based on the weight and size of the order as well as the shipping destination.

Standard shipping within the domestic US typically takes 2 to 6 business days. Ground shipping delivers Monday through Friday, and can take up to 10 business days, depending on delivery location. Domestic orders shipping outside the continental US may take up to 15 business days with Ground shipping.

If you need to expedite your order, please select a quicker service or contact us. Standard Overnight and 2-Day shipping methods deliver Monday through Friday only. Orders that include expedited shipping that are placed before 12pm CT Monday through Friday will ship out the same day as long as all items are in stock. Standard Overnight and 2-Day shipments to remote areas may also take additional shipping time. Expedited shipping options for custom items will not decrease production time for order; only transit time will decrease.

You are responsible for submitting correct address information when placing an order as well as for collecting the shipment at the delivery location (i.e., mail box, post office, etc.). If a package is returned to sender due to incorrect address information or failure to collect at the delivery location, you will have the option of paying for reshipment or receiving a refund for the items returned, less shipping charges.

International Shipping

We are delighted to offer international shipping options. Shipping fees vary based on the destination, weight and size of your order. You are responsible for assuring the product can be lawfully imported to the destination country and for complying with all laws and regulations of the destination country. Orders shipped outside of the United States may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees levied by the destination country. The recipient of an international shipment may be subject to such import taxes, customs duties and fees, which are levied once a shipment reaches the recipient's country. The recipient will be responsible for any additional charges for customs clearance; we have no control over these charges and can not predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you should contact your local customs office for more information. Please be aware that when customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond original delivery estimates. Any fees or delays that may occur are outside of our control.
