Shipping

DOMESTIC SHIPPING RATES

we ship domestic orders USPS priority mail,  INSURED & SIGNATURE REQUIRED.

if you do not want me to ship signature required, please note that at checkout.  we will ship according to your wishes but know that if your package is lost, stolen or damaged, we cannot replace your order for free.

to determine transit times, use the USPS postage calculator  shipping from los angeles 90026.

we will send you the tracking info from USPS.

we highly recommend you sign up for email or text updates from USPS for your package.

the post office seems to have recently changed its policy. they now only attempt delivery once. YOU have to request redelivery through the website. if you don’t sign up for the notifications, you will miss the window of opportunity & they will send your order back to me.

at that point you will have the option for a refund (minus shipping) or pay $15 for shipping again. this has the potential to be a lengthy & annoying process so please, get the tracking updates!


INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING RATES

we ship international orders Global Express Guarantee (GXG) which costs around $100 and takes 1-3 days.

USPS postage calculator  ships from los angeles 90027.

GXG is picked up in the states by USPS but delivered overseas by FedEx.

GXG is more expensive than other USPS options but it is the only one that can be insured & tracked outside the US.

USPS international shipping options


3RD PARTY SHIPPING

we no longer support shipping from UPS, FEDEX or DHL.

 GXG rates are competitive with the aforementioned shippers so there will be no financial loss to my customers.

also, by using GXG, we can get your order out within 24 hrs.  the 3rd parties create too many delays.


USE AT YOUR OWN RISK

final international shipping options could be

USPS PRIORITY EXPRESS for around $75 which takes 3-5 days

or

USPS PRIORITY for around $35 and takes 6-10 days..

while cheaper, neither of these options are trackable or insurable.

consequently, WE DO NOT RECOMMEND using these services.

furthermore, lost packages will not be refunded or replaced for free.  buyer beware.

if you do want me to use one of the cheaper services, please note that in the checkout & we will refund you the amount overcharged.
