How long does it take to receive my order?

Domestic orders on average take 1-3 business days to process and normally around 2-8 postal days to ship.  International orders can take anywhere from 1-5 days to process and anywhere from 7-21 postal days to ship, if not longer due to Customs.  We do our best to get orders out to our customers as quickly as possible, however our estimated delivery times depend on the specific products ordered based on stock and seasonal availability and your shipping destination.
