What Does Shipping Cost? - Calculate Shipping Costs

Our shipping fees are based on the total weight of your package(s) and the region where the package will be delivered.

The easiest way to view shipping is to allow our shopping cart to calculate it for you. You DON'T have to go all the way through the checkout just to see your shipping. **Additional shipping fees may apply when purchasing more than 10 of an item or for multiples of large, bulky items.

Here is how to calculate shipping:
1 Select the items you wish to purchase by clicking the ADD TO CART button located on the product detail page.
2 To the Right of the page you'll see a Shipping Estimate section.
3 Select your country, then state, then enter your zip or postal code and click GO
4 Your shipping charges will be displayed

*Shipping charges are per individual destination so if you are shipping products to multiple addresses there is a separate charge per address.

**There may be additional shipping charges required when purchasing multiples of large, fragile OR bulky items. You will be contacted prior to shipping with the adjusted cost.

Transit Time For Canada

Estimated transit time is displayed when you select your shipping method. Orders shipping to Canada as well as all other international destinations must go through customs. The amount of time this takes can vary tremendously and takes longer during "holiday" seasons. If your shipment is delayed you should contact you local customs office for assistance.

Transit Time International Orders

Transit time is estimated. Shipping methods other than "EMS" service are not trackable. Once the shipment leaves our postal office we have no means of tracking your package. If you are ordering products and arrival time is critical we suggest only using EMS service. While shipping 4-6 week "parcel post" is most economical, it can be unpredictable and may greatly exceed the 4 - 6 week estimated time and this is due primarily to increased security which in turn causes shipping and dock delays.

We can also offer UPS or DHL service to most countries (these options are not show in the shipping drop down). In most cases UPS and DHL are considerably more expensive than the USPS service but if you are ordering small, "light" items then they may offer a faster, less expensive option. Please contact us via email to request these services.

Canada & Other International Orders

Canada Customers
We will ship products to Canada only via U.S. postal service. We are no longer able to ship UPS due to the unpredictability of their brokerage fees. The U.S. postal system may levy customs fees as well. As the buyer you will be responsible for all customs or brokerage fees. If you choose to refuse a shipment due to these fees we will refund you for the amount of the merchandise, less the original shipping fee and any fees charged to return the item to us.


International Desinations
We ship world-wide to most countries via USPS (United Postal Service) International Express mail.. Simply add items to your cart and select your country in the appropriate drop down and proceed through the shopping cart.

Some international orders may require an additional security check. If so you will be notified by email.  This is to help protect you against fraudulent orders.   Once your order is confirmed we will ship. Please note. We only ship via "Insured" methods.
