For International Addresses

International orders can be shipped via USPS First Class Mail International, USPS Global Priority Mail, and USPS Express Mail International (additional new method below). Your location depends on the services that are offered. First Class Mail International typically takes 7-21 business days. Global Priority typically takes 7-10 business days to arrive but can sometimes take up to 3 weeks for delivery. Pricing depends on your location and will be available at checkout. Expedited service is also available via USPS Global Express Mail upon checkout. Express Mail typically takes 3-5 business days for delivery but can sometimes take up to 8 business days.

New for 2015! We are offering UPSMI International Mail to all countries. This method typically takes 5-10 business days to arrive but varies for each country and may take longer (sometimes up to 1 month). Pricing depends on your location and will be available at checkout. It is our cheapest international shipping method yet very reliable and trackable to many countries. However the tracking number is somewhat vague with updates (usually just one update when it is processed in the US and then delivered to your country). 


Sales tax will apply to Retail Orders only if shipped within the State of Arizona.  Wholesale Orders are exempt from sales tax if we have a valid tax exemption certificate on file.  The sales tax rate is 9.3%
