US and International Customers: Due to Covid19, there is a HUGE delay in the postal service. I have temporarily removed any shipping options that do not come with tracking because of a large amount of customers asking for refunds. I apologize for this inconvenience, however the postal service is completely out of my control. I appreciate your continued support.
