Customer is responsible for cost of shipping when returning or exchanging. Customer will receive store credit for the price paid for specific item and will exclude price paid for shipping and other charges. Shipping charges are non-refundable.

There is also an option to get a refund but there will be a 15% restocking fee.

Standard shipping is free within the United States. Alaska and Hawaii are a flat rate of $8.99. Priority shipping is extra charge. If you select priority shipping at checkout it does not necessarily mean your order will get to you any faster, although it may, it just means your order gets moved to the top of our list and will be packaged and processed faster than those that pay standard shipping. We use USPS for all our packages. Please check their website for shipping times.

Orders will be shipped out within 3-5 business days at the latest depending on sale volumes. We do try to get all orders out sooner than that.
