Below is the 2012 Holiday Shipping Schedule for UPS and USPS. If you have any questions regarding delivery time, please email or call. A representive can assist you in determining an estimated time frame in which a delivery will be scheduled. A good rule of thumb is to order at a time that will allow you to receive your package at least 3 business days before you actually need it.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are shipping to an alternate address, please call us and let us know. Typically, orders with different billing and shipping addresses can be delayed until verified. Please refer to our standard transit time shipping guide for additional information.

Holiday shipping with the Post Office can be tricky. We no longer ship Express through the post office because it is no longer a 1 day ship to most areas. First Class and USPS Priority are Not Guaranteed. If you are using USPS Postal Services, please give yourself a few extra days.
First Class - Travels are letter speed.
Priority Mail - 'Typically' 2-3 days after your ship day.
Express Mail - We no longer use USPS Express Mail Service.
