CREDIT CARD PROCESSING – This is a secure ordering web site. Your credit card details are never visible or accessible. Be sure that the billing address matches the credit card in use. The most cost-effective shipping rate (see shipping information below) will be used and will be reflected on your credit card receipt. An e-mailed credit card receipt will be automatically generated on acceptance of the payment. A hard copy receipt will be included with the shipment. A full receipt of the complete order will also be included with the shipment.

CHANGING A SUBMITTED ORDER – The credit card processing tool for this site only allows a decrease in an amount to be captured.

Your credit card details are not visible or available here to make additions. Changed orders will have shipping costs adjusted accordingly. Multiple orders on the same day will be combined and shipping adjusted.

SHIPPING – Shipment is usually within a day or two of order placement, excluding weekends and holidays or times of office closure. Your order will not ship: 1) if there are difficulties processing your credit card, 2) if you do not include any shipping costs, 3) if you do not provide sufficient correct address information, 4) if you request verification of shipping costs to your credit card before order processing, or 5) during weekends or holidays.

SHIPPING COSTSShipping options are UPS or US Postal Service. Most items will ship via US Postal Service “flat rate” or first class mail and the most cost-effective rate will always be used*.If you prefer expedited shipping, please make a notation of this preference. Large overseas shipments may be shipped via a freight carrier. Pricing is dependent on the size and weight of the order. In some cases, a better rate may be available and your payment will reflect a reduced charge. (See some pricing examples below.) Shipping reflects current postal service and other rates only.

  • Occasionally the embedded links for USPS or UPS seem confused and will generate an unreasonable shipping rate to your order. Please know that this amount will not be used for your payment acceptance. The most cost-effective rate will be used and your order amount will be adjusted to reflect the less expensive, more reasonable rate.

ADDITIONAL SHIPPING FEESShipping costs DO NOT include any brokerage, customs or other fees that may be assessed by the delivery company or the receiving country’s postal service. If delivery requires the payment of any additional fees, these fees are the responsibility of the buyer.
