Domestic orders: All orders 15 oz. and under are shipped via First Class Mail. Orders over 1 lb. are shipped via US Priority Mail. We ship from Raleigh, NC, so depending on your location, you will usually receive your order between 2 and 7 days. Please allow 14 days, however, before contacting us about a lost package. As luck would have it, your package usually arrives the same day you've emailed us to ask about it
International orders: All orders 63 oz. and under are shipped via First Class International Airmail. Orders over 64 oz. are shipped via International Priority Mail. Please allow 4 weeks before contacting us about lost international shipments. Unfortunately, we do not have tracking information for international shipments and therefore cannot ensure delivery.
