2018 Christmas Shipping Advisory

Here is our best advice on selecting a shipping method that will achieve pre-Christmas delivery for parcels delivered to most US addresses. We ship from Seattle, Washington 98116.

The USPS Service Commitments webpage will tell you when you can expect a parcel to arrive at a location by providing the expected shipment date and our Origin Zip Code, 98116.

USPS First Class/Priority Mail - USPS First Class and Priority Mail provide remarkably swift and reliable air-expedited service at a price that allows us to include free shipping with our low pricing. However, as Christmas approaches, transit times may grow a day or two longer.

Priority Mail Express - Priced a little higher than FedEx 2Day service, USPS Priority Mail Express reaches most addresses overnight, but some may take two days. Use the USPS Service Commitments webpage to determine the scheduled delivery date by providing the expected shipment date and our Origin Zip Code, 98116. Reliability is very high, and a money-back guarantee is provided.

FedEx Express - For fast, highly reliable, date-definite delivery, FedEx is the way to go, though it can be expensive. If you are shipping to a rural or remote area, we recommend that you visit the FedEx website to confirm that normal transit times apply to your destination, or call us for assistance at (206) 937-1515. Use 98116 as the "From" Zip Code.

Orders placed through noon PST Monday - Friday will be shipped the same day. On Saturday, orders to be shipped by the USPS placed by noon PST will be shipped the same day. FedEx shipments are dispatched Monday through Friday.
