We use both UPS and USPS for shipping to our customers. We try to keep the costs down by choosing the most inexpensive way to ship each order. All shipping costs are included in the price of each item. This has always worked well for both our customers and for us, so we will continue this policy as long as it is possible to do so.
We try to ship out the next business day after you place your order, but during our spring busy season, this may not always be possible. We are a small company with a small staff. We will do our very best to get your products to you in a timely manner, but please be patient during the times we are overwhelmed. A good rule of thumb is to place your order two weeks before you need it so you'll be sure to get it on time.
