Most items take between 1 and 4 business days to ship. Preorders are expected to ship on the date given on the product page. In-stock items ordered together with a preorder will be held to be shipped with the preorder. Please contact us if you placed a multiple-item order with a preorder and wish to arrange for in-stock items to be shipped separately. An additional shipping fee may be required.

Shipping rates are calculated during checkout based on the weight of your items and your shipping destination.

Important note for international buyers: Shipments outside the United States may be subject to additional tariffs, duties, or other non-routine customs brokerage charges that are the responsibility of the recipient upon delivery.
