Shipping + Handling


Domestic & International

Although some items are in stock and ship within 5 business days, most items on the website are produced to order and ship within one week.  In some instances, production may take up to two weeks depending on material availability.  Shipping transit times vary depending on the service chosen.

We ship all orders via UPS (domestic) or DHL (international) unless otherwise specified.

If special shipping instructions are required, such as to an APO/AFO, or certain international destinations, please contact us in advance for arrangement.  We reserve the right to ship via the carrier of our choice to ensure the most reliable and secure shipping method wherever UPS shipping is not available.
