We strive to ship out your order as quickly as possible. If you place your order by 3pm (CST), most orders will process and ship the same day. In some cases, it may take 1 to 3 business days or longer to process your order before being shipped. Some reasons that cause delays in order shipping are: inaccurate or incomplete shipping or billing information, your shipping address is a P.O. Box, additional documentation is required to verify your order, or we are currently out of stock on your item. If we are out of stock for an item ordered, we will notify you as soon as possible, either by phone or e-mail. We can only ship to P.O. boxes if you provide a physical street address. Orders received after 3pm Friday through Sunday will be processed on the following Monday.
