Shipping Policy

Order Processing

Our normal business hours are Monday-Friday, 8:00 am - 5:00 pm est. (with the exception of holidays).
We know that you want your stencils quickly and in general we ship orders within 36 business hours of receipt. However our orders come in rushes and sometimes we get behind so our goal is to ship everything out within 3 days and we hit this 95% of the time.  If you have an order that needs to get out by a certain day please let us know.  If it has to get out within 36 hours we may charge an expedite fee to cover the incremental costs we have to get the order out.

Shipping Options

We ship with UPS and Fed Ex primarily. USPS does not take our bigger stencils. Shipping cost is a major expense for us especially with bigger packages, they have increased their costs significantly over the last two years an we spend a lot of time working with them to reduce them. We absorb much of the cost of shipping and believe a flat rate is the fairest way to handle the situation. Depending upon the package size location and timing we will choose the vendor that is most cost effective.

Some of our packages are very large and sometimes we get special charges for specific locations. If this happens we reserve the right to charge an incremental fee.

Normal shipping times are 3-5 business days in the Continental US. You will receive an email with a tracking number once your package is shipped.

If you want expedited shipping or prefer a specific carrier, please call us at 844-456-3273. We will work with you to get the package to you on time and at as reasonable price that we can get.
