Shipping and Handling

How long will it take for my order to arrive?

From the moment you place your order to arrival at your door, ground delivery ranges from four to eight business days depending on where you are located. Ground delivery orders SHIP by Federal Express Ground directly from our warehouse in Joliet, Illinois within 1-3 business days. Transit time is IN ADDITION to processing time.

Business days are Monday through Friday.

Use this rule of thumb for figuring how long it will take your order to arrive via Fed Ex Ground to continental U.S. destinations:

Order processing time (24-48 hours which may vary depending on the time of day you place your order) + shipping time (1-5 business days) = 2-7 business days ***ALTHOUGH WE MAKE EVERY EFFORT TO STRICTLY ADHERE TO THIS TIMETABLE, WE DO RECOMMEND THAT YOU ALLOW A FEW DAYS “CUSHION” IN CASE OF ANY DELAYS***

During seasonal times, including Christmas, Halloween, Valentines, Easter and Spring Graduation season, please allow up to an additional 72 hours to process your order.

See International Orders below. Colors indicate the following: Pink = 1 day, Turquoise = 2 days, Orange = 3 days Green = 4 days Purple = 5 days Yellow = 6 days Royal Blue = 7 days.

If your order is over $275 or more the fee is $35. This rush charge is IN ADDITION to the freight charges on your order. (If available in your area, priority Saturday delivery can be arranged for an additional charge.
