Production & Shipping
Current Shipping Times Due to Covid-19
Canadian Orders - We are still seeing a slight delay with Canadian Shipments via Chitchats Express and Canada Post. On average most shipments are taking about 4-5 days longer then their standard shipping time. Please plan accordingly when ordering.
USA Orders - We are seeing a slight delay with USA Shipments via USPS. Due to the current state of the Government/USPS we are seeing a 1-3 day delay in most shipments (Standard shipping time is 2-4 days). On average most orders are taking 4-5 days to arrive with standard first class tracked mail. Please plan accordingly when ordering.
International Orders - We are seeing that International shipments are taking longer then usual due to international travel restrictions and closed borders/countries. On average packages are taking 30+ business days to clear customs and arrive to their destination (standard shipping is 22 business days). Please plan accordingly when ordering.
We can not be held liable or responsible if an order does not arrive in time, or there are delays in shipping. This is COMPLETELY out of our control.
Thank you so much for your patience and understanding. We will ALL get through this together. Please stay in, stay safe and stay healthy!
