International Shipping Rates
All international orders will ship USPS First Class Package unless otherwise noted. The rates will be displayed in your cart after you select your country in the ship to address pulldown menu. All rates are calculated based on the destination country and order weight. Make sure the ship to address in your store account shows up correctly before proceeding to PayPal for payment. Please do not alter international shipping addresses once you have transferred to PayPal as this may cause problems with customs and shipping forms.

We do not currently ship to every country. If your location appears in the pull down menu when entering your address, we will ship to you. If your country is not listed, please check back later, as we will be adding more locations when we get shipping details worked out.
