Turn Around Time: Our TAT for ready to ship orders is 2-4 business days (Monday-Friday.) During the summer months of June through August we only ship Monday through Thursday to protect packages from melting. TAT does not include the time it takes your package to arrive which can vary from 2-3 day for orders in within the USA and 7-14 days for orders to Canada. International packages can take 2 to 4 weeks to arrive. We make every effort to ship ahead of our turn about time.

- We will combine shipping on multiple orders placed within 12 hours of each other, you may use the code COMBINESHIPPING on any orders placed within 12 hours of your first one where you already paid for shipping. If the code is misused you will be invoiced for shipping and have 24 hours to pay before I cancel your order and return the items to stock. Doing this will hopefully prevent the code from being misused. .
