Shipping Policy

Placing Orders

Orders are processed Monday through Friday during regular business hours. Our standard method of shipping is UPS ground service. Please note that shipping times can vary based on order volume, inclement weather, and special events on campus. We strive to pack and ship orders within 24 hours of placement whenever possible.

Our standard shipping rates only apply to addresses within the United States. We're able to ship internationally on a case-by-base basis. If you wish to ship internationally, we will contact you with a shipping quote after your order is placed. If you accept the shipping rate, we'll adjust your order to include that shipping cost. Please note that we do not cover any additional taxes or fees that may be owed upon delivery of international shipments. The carrier will contact you if extra fees are owed before your order can be delivered.

Gift Orders

If you would like to send an order as a gift, please indicate the items that are gifts on the checkout page. For gift orders we will remove tags and include a gift receipt, include a custom note to the recipient. Please list your email address to receive final order totals. We do not offer gift wrapping as a service. There is no extra fee for gift orders.
