We have defined our shipping methods to better fit our customers needs. We have always shipped through UPS Ground within the U.S.A only. We use the U.S. Postal Service which through the post office we have always offered Priority Mail... this method can be quite expensive if the item is way too heavy or the box is too large. Priority Mail usually takes 2-3 business days to arrive to you.
So shown below are the other two shipping methods we have added:
Parcel Post - this method is always cheaper than priority mail. It will take longer to arrive to you than priority mail and will be anywhere from 2-7 days depending on your location from our location (we are in California).
First Class Mail Parcel - this method can NOT weigh more than 13 ounces, so this would be for small light weight items that can easily fit into a padded envelope and not easy to break or into a small box that does not exceed 13 oz. in total weight. This method would be great for very few items that are small and do not weigh much. Delivery time can be up to 2-5 days depending on your destination from us. If your item(s) weigh more than 13 ounces then this shipping option will not show in the cart where you calculate shipping.
We have always had Priority Mail International shipping method for the customers outside the U.S. but it is the only method we offer for international customers.
