Make sure you look at the "Ship Time" column next to the items you are ordering. If it
says "Usually 1-2 Days" or "Usually 2-4 Days" that means that we will process your order in
that time frame and get the order to UPS or the Post Office for delivery to you. The 1-2
Days or 2-4 Days are business days. This means that you should not count the weekends
when figuring ship time. You then need to add additional time for UPS or the Post Office to
get the order to you. In the contiguous U.S. UPS will take between 1 and 5 business days.
The Post Office ships the majority of items in 2 to 3 days.
