Orders shipping to Canada by UPS:

UPS delivery times for orders shipped to Canada will vary depending on your location in Canada. Most major metro areas receive packages in 3-5 shipping days after the order leaves our Minnesota facility. We highly recommend you place any orders needed for Christmas as soon as possible, especially if you are in a rural area. Orders received after Monday, December 20th will most likely not be received in time regardless of your location in Canada. Please contact us if you have any questions about Canada shipping timelines.

Orders shipping to APO/FPO, US Territories or other countries by the Post Office (USPS):

International shipments by the USPS can have wildly varying delivery times, especially during the holidays. We highly recommend you place any orders for these addresses immediately for the best chance of receiving them by December 24th. For non-APO/FPO and territories shipments we'd also recommend you upgrade to Express Mail International as this will get the package there as quickly as possible by USPS (3-5 days). Priority Mail International shipments have a claimed delivery timeframe of 6-10 days, but this can and does vary.
