Current effects of COVID-19
COVID-19 is affecting supply chains causing slowed deliveries of shipments to us as well as to you.
In addition, there is an increase in demand for our products due to many families deciding to educate at home.
Our current order fulfillment time is approximately 5 days.
We are working hard to fill orders as quickly as possible.
We highly suggest that you select Priority Mail or UPS shipping at this time.
Our standard shipping method has been taking 1-4 weeks to arrive, in part due to the recent hurricane.
Thank you for your understanding, patience, and support!

Free shipping does not apply to international orders.
Rates are calculated by weight and shipping method. We do not charge shipping on international orders at the time of purchase. We calculate the most economical rate based on the size and weight of your order then email an invoice to you for the actual cost. International orders are shipped via United States Postal Service and their sub-contractors.
You are welcome to email us for an estimate before placing your order. Any border duties and taxes are your responsibility.
Canadian orders are shipped by either USPS or Fed Ex Ground. We determine the least expensive method unless you indicate a preference. Any border duties and taxes are your responsibility. We have no control over these costs.
Media mail is the postal service's lowest priority mail class. The USPS delivery time for media mail is generally from 10-14 days. There is no guarantee on delivery time however, and on rare occasions we have seen packages take up to four weeks.
We put tracking on all of our packages, but media mail is not insured or guaranteed.
Because of its strict requirements as to what constitutes media mail, the USPS can make random inspections of the contents of media mail packages. This can significantly slow the delivery time of your order.
If you are in need of faster, guaranteed delivery times and/or insurance, we recommend selecting UPS Ground or Priority Mail, both of which are insured.
If any items on your order are out of stock and we expect to have them in stock within 7 days, we will hold your order and ship it together. If the out of stock items will not be in stock within 7 days of your order, we will ship your order and send the back ordered items when they are in stock at no extra cost to you. Our policy is to ship back ordered items via media mail. If you need your items more quickly please contact us to make arrangements.
