Shipping & Returns


Taxes will be charged on most U.S. orders, excluding military addresses. Recent legislation has allowed states to mandate whether sales tax can be charged on online purchases shipping to their state. Most states have enacted laws to take advantage of this. Based on the shipping address of your order, we may now be required to charge sales tax. We know no one likes paying taxes but it is important that we adhere to all applicable state tax laws.


Our web store is connected to USPS, Fed EX, and UPS. Enter your address and see a "real time" estimate of shipping charges. Orders over $100 ship free in the continental US. Excludes Hawaii, Alaska, and Puerto Rico.
