Standard UPS Ground Service
Per order/per address|
to lower 48 states

Customers from Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico, call 1-888-851-9088 (toll-free) for shipping quotes.
Customers from Canada and outside the US, call 919-336-3154 for shipping quotes and to place your order.
Most web orders are shipped within 1-2 business days of order receipt via UPS ground service from our warehouse in North Carolina. While most items are shipped UPS, we do occasionally ship by U.S. Postal Service. Because much of our product is large and fragile (sometimes we wish we sold clothes!), some items may take slightly longer to pack and ship. If you need something sooner, or would be interested in having an item shipped next day or second day air, please call us at 1-888-851-9088 (toll-free), or 919-336-3154 (outside US), or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and in most cases we can accommodate your request.
We are proud of our shipping record and our prices. We offer FREE shipping on purchases over $75, and in many instances, our shipping rates are at or below our actual costs. Because many of our larger items have to be packaged differently depending on their destination, we apologize for not being able to have our air rates online. But rest assured that the amount we charge for this shipping service is what it actually costs--we don't make our valued customers pay for our "handling."
For Next Day or Second Day shipping, call us at 1-888-851-9088 (toll-free), or 919-336-3154 (outside US), or if you prefer, contact us by email at email@example.com for charges.
Express shipping is available on most in-stock items. Express shipping on personalized items will speed up the shipping, but does not speed up manufacturing. Please email or call us if you need a personalized item more quickly, and we will do our best to accommodate you if humanly possible.
If an item is damaged in shipping, please contact us immediately at 1-888-851-9088. Save the box and all packing materials until after UPS has inspected the package. We will send a replacement immediately or issue a refund if an item is a "one of a kind."
Packages must be opened and inspected within three days of delivery as UPS will not honor any claims made after a reasonable time. Sorry, but we cannot be responsible for damages discovered weeks or months later.
Order with confidence, as we offer a 30-day money back guarantee on most items we sell. If you're not happy with your purchase for any reason, just call 1-888-851-9088 (toll-free), and we'll give you instructions on how to return your item for a full refund (minus shipping). Unfortunately, on personalized items such as engraved bells and personalized signs, we cannot offer a refund if the mistake was made by the customer, so please double check when ordering! We will replace, at no charge, items that are personalized incorrectly by us.
We gladly ship via the U.S. Postal Service to our military customers with APO boxes, and at the same prices we quote for U.S. shipping.
Residents of Louisiana (4%) and North Carolina (7.5%) must add appropriate sales tax as we have physical presence (store and warehouse) in those states.
