Domestic orders: USPS Priority normally takes 2-3 business days to reach most US destinations, sometimes only 1 if you're in the Pacific Northwest. Economy can take up to 6-10 days.
International orders: USPS Priority and Economy can take up to 6-10 business days, depending on your country's customs office.
Every order will receive a shipping notification email, and if you selected Priority, it will include tracking information.
