Shipping: Getting Our Items to You

If you do not see the special service you want on the FPP order page, give us a call or place instructions in your order notes. We do not offer 'same day' shipping, but we can offer 1 Day Shipping via FedEx, for instance. If you are in a hurry and need same day processing, we can often do that, especially if your order comes in before noon Pacific time. However, it's best to call us as to availability or exact processing time for your particular item: 1.626.966.1955. For general estimates of our processing, see this page, Typical Processing Times.

The following US Holiday Shipping Deadlines apply for continental USA. This example is for 2021. Be sure to check our processing times. If we can ship the same day as your order, the cutoff dates below apply. If not, add the processing times to be sure, or call us. See the first chart for USPS:
