Shipping Policy

Shipment Processing Time

Orders over March to September (off-season) depending on complexity and stock levels can be processed same day but generally 2-3 business days.

Orders over October to February (back-to-school) tend to be more complex and may take some weeks to process.  Backordered titles may force us to use 2-3 shipments to complete your order.

Orders are not shipped or delivered on weekends or holidays.

If we are experiencing a high volume of orders, shipments may be delayed. Please allow additional days in transit for delivery.

While we staff up for back-to-school service levels will be under pressure over the 2-3 weeks around the start of school.
