Order arrival


At checkout you can choose from several shipping options. Once your order is placed, you will receive the estimated ship date in the order confirmation e-mail, which is sent to you immediately after your order is placed. Simply add the 'estimated ship date' with your choice of shipping method to determine when your order will arrive.
