Light Packet Shipping

Some of you might have noticed we added a ‘light packet’ logo to many of our product pages. You might ask ‘what is light packet?’ It is a low cost shipping method we offer for Canada and The United States. The logo indicates that specific product is eligible for light packet shipping.


Holiday Shipping

Good news everyone! As of December 8, 2015, We have extended our Canada Post shipping cut off to 4:00 PM Pacific Time (7:00 PM Eastern Time). This means all orders placed before these times will ship out same day! That’s 2 extra hours of shopping!
