Return, Shipping & Privacy Policies;

Shipping costs are not added to your initial invoice, we calculate them to your best advantage. Since we strive to send your packages in the most economical way we will ship with either Fed-Ex, UPS or USPS unless you request different.

We ship orders out 2 to 3 times a week so your order may not go out the next day. Most orders are sent by USPS with the method being determined by the size & shape of the package. If the difference in shipping is less than $1.00 we will ship your order by Priority to save on the shipping time.

Due to the costs associated with Credit Card acceptance we must have a minimum sale of at least $20. Wire transfers may be accepted, but they do incur a $10.00 fee for the service.

When you place your order our credit card company may query your card holder to make sure that the cost of the order plus shipping & handling can be covered, this is not the actual charge.
