Shipping & Handling (Information Updated as of July 2022) - All shipments are AT YOUR RISK. Changes especially in the INTERNATIONAL shipments. Please read this notice for options.

Shipping & Handling Policies: We are unable to quote shipping and handling costs prior to the submission of your complete order. This site will offer you available delivery options at that time.

We apologize for the significant increases in shipping and handling charges and the frequent policy changes by USPS. Unfortunately, the new USPS policies and rates have forced us to pass along these fees to our customers. Any deviation from these rules will be at your risk.

All orders will be sent AT YOUR RISK. In other words, our responsibility ends once the packet is placed with the US Postal Service.

There are currently delays to many international destinations due to COVID as well as several countries to which mail will not be delivered. Please check your postal offices for the latest updates.

We offer several options in order to partially circumvent this problem. Various postal rules may affect the actual availability of the methods chosen. The following shipping options are currently available (if insurance is desired, we will bill you for the insurance fees dependent on the amount desired; additionally if you choose a shipping method not available per USPS regulations, we will so advise):
