Your order will generally be shipped within one to two days of receipt for in-stock items. We will also notify you if the product you ordered is out of stock and when we expect to ship it to you. Please note the shipping times below are in addition to the days processing time noted above. 

Standard shipping
If the products you ordered are in stock, in most instances we will ship your order within one to two days after receiving the order.
