New shipping costs, contest news, coupons and more.....

Okay, we finally worked out the final details with the USPS. We can now offer First Class shipping to our International Customers. That means, lower shipping fees.

In fact, we're lowering our International Rates all around. First Class rates are only beneficial up to 3 pounds. Anything more than that and we will ship Priority. We compared the costs and this is what we have to do.

First Class takes a little longer to get to you (only a couple of days) but it costs less! Less shipping means more product right?

Okay, so the new shipping rates go into effect tonight! And to celebrate, we're offering 15% off your order through the rest of the week. Enter code CHEAPSHIP to receive the 15% off your entire order.

The new International Shipping rates are as follows:

Orders up to $50.00 - $10.00 shipping
$51.00 - $85.00 -$11.00 shipping
$86.00 - $100.00 - $13.00 shipping
$100.00 - $150.00 - $18.00 shipping
$151.00 - $249.00 - $23.00 shipping
Orders over $250 still receive free shipping

We hope we are able to better accomodate our international customers with these new rates. Please note, if your shipping comes to a lesser amount, your final invoice will be adjusted to reflect the new rate. We do not charge more than what we are charged for shipping. In fact, we've been charging you a 25% discounted rate than what the USPS has been charging us. With the ability to ship First Class, we can offer an even greater discount. The same goes for our US customers. Our system only calculates based on the amount of your order. The USPS charges based on zone AND weight. In turn, we base our shipping costs on an estimated cost. If we pay less, than so do you. You might notice this on your final invoice included with your order.

Please email us at with any questions.
