- Expedited shipping is not available for orders shipped to APO boxes and United States territories.
- For prompt delivery of expedited orders, please ensure that someone will be available at your shipping location to receive your order. If your mailing address is a PO box, please also include a physical address, because FedEx and UPS cannot deliver to a post office box.

Additional Shipping Terms and Information
Shipments to more than one address require shipping charges for each address. Some orders may be shipped with a "signature required" notation at our discretion.
We attempt to ship all orders within 24 hours (excluding Saturdays, Sundays, and days on which our shippers will not accept shipments). Usually we ship by FedEx Ground, FedEx Home Delivery, FedEx SmartPost, U.S. Priority Mail (with delivery confirmation) or U.S. First Class Mail. When we process your order for shipment, we will email you with your tracking number, if applicable.
Typically, items shipped to the lower 48 states by USPS arrive in about two to five days (exclusive of Sundays and Holidays). Please note that these times can be delayed if there are problems with your shipping address or no one is available to accept the delivery when the driver arrives.
For International Shipping, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for shipping costs and delivery options. Duties and taxes are the responsibility of the purchaser. They will be collected at time of delivery.
