When will my order arrive?
Most orders for in-stock items will leave our Pennsylvania shipping facility the next business day. An order placed on Friday or Saturday will not ship until Monday. To estimate the actual delivery date, add one business day to the select shipping method/carrier. For example:

• UPS Next Day Air: Please call our office at 1-800-775-WORD
• UPS 2nd Day Air orders will arrive in three business days.

 

UPS Ground: UPS does not guarantee delivery time for UPS Ground, but 3 to 5 business days is a good estimate. Expect delivery in 4 to 5 business days depending upon the distance from our Pennsylvania shipping facility.

 

Priority Mail: The U.S. Post Office makes no guarantee, but estimates delivery time for Priority Mail to be 2 to 3 business days, so expect delivery in 3 to 4 business days.

 

Standard Shipping: Our Standard Shipping is USPS Media Mail. The U.S. Post Office makes no guarantee, but estimates delivery time for Media Mail to be 3 to 10 business days, so expect delivery in 4 to 11 business days.

 

Canada: Delivery to Canada is sent via USPS Priority Mail International/Canda Post . The U.S. Post Office makes no guarantee, but estimates delivery time for Canada International Priority to be 5 to 9 business days, so expect delivery in 6 to 10 business days.

 

A business day includes Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Observed Holidays, Saturdays and Sundays are not considered a business day.

APO/FPO Orders & Delivery Outside the US/Canada

 

• APO/FPO Orders: We do ship to APO and FPO addresses, but "United States" must be selected as the "Ship-to" country when placing you order online. To complete your order, fill-out the "Billing Information" as normal. For "Shipping Information", choose "Add a New Ship To" and add the APO or FPO address you would like your order delivered to (even if it is the same as the Billing address) and choose "United States" as the country.

 

Delivery Outside the USA and Canada

Serving our customers is our first priority. Unfortunately we cannot ship to the destination requested for this order. We do not offer delivery outside of the USA and Canada since these destinations are better served through one of our distributors or through our partnership with Amazon.com. Ordering from one of our Distributors or through Amazon.com will get you your order quicker and with lower shipping charges than we can offer from within the United States.
