We ship items out as soon as possible, but this will not be the same day as your order. In general, please add 2-3 weeks to allow for processing time. If we anticipate a longer lead time, it will be noted in an e-mail sent to you. If you have any questions about the lead time on a specific item, please contact us at (888) 830-2219 with your questions.
You should receive an email confirming your order shortly after you’ve placed it. If you don’t receive that email, please check your spam folder and see if you can locate it. This is especially important because, if you haven’t received the order confirmation email, you also won’t receive the email with your shipment notification and tracking information.
