We will process all in-stock orders that are received by 3:00pm ET for same day shipping from our warehouse in Pennsylvania. Shipping takes up to 8 business days from date of shipment (not including weekends or holidays).

For more urgent requests and for customers living on the West coast, we offer Priority Mail, 2-DAY, 3-DAY, and OVERNIGHT options at a small additional charge (Click here for shipping rates).

Online inventory is updated regularly. If an item is not immediately available, it will ship the moment it becomes available by our Saver Shipping method.
