Do you ship to my country, how much is shipping and are there any taxes and fees that will be added?
We ship worldwide and the cost of shipping is determined by a shipping calculator that is built into the site. The cost is based on the total weight of all the items being purchased and the current USPS rates. You can choose from first class, priority & express. Media mail is also available for a flat $4.00 on USA orders only. The total will be given to you after you enter your billing info, but before you make the final confirmation of your purchase, so that you have a chance to review it. Any other import taxes and fees that are imposed on international orders are completely dependent on the country that you are ordering from. If you are ordering from outside the U.S. the best way to find out if you will be charged any import fees is to contact your local postal service.
How soon will my order ship?
Orders ship within 1-3 business days. If you need it in a hurry just let us know. We can usually rush it out for you. All physical pre-order items should ship out from our warehouse in NY between 5-8 days before release date, so long as there are no delays in manufacturing that would delay this advance shipping timeline.
