Free Shipping Offer

Shipping Methods

Priority Mail

For orders under $150.00, we offer US Postal Service Priority Mail. This is usually the most economical way to ship small orders.

First Class Mail

When an order consists of only flat materials (such as decals), and has a total package weight of 13 ounces or less we offer First Class Mail as a shipping option.

FedEx Ground

For larger orders, FedEx Ground may be less expensive than Priority Mail, however, the shipment time may be longer.

FedEx 3 Day (Express Saver), 2nd Day or Next Day Air

When an order is needed quickly and with a guaranteed delivery, choose FedEx 3 Day, 2nd Day or Next Day Air.

Late Deliveries and Shipping Fee Refunds

USPS Shipping - There are no refunds of shipping fees for late deliveries.

FedEx Shipping - When late deliveries occur, we will contact FedEx to request a refund. Assuming that the delay was not weather related (or some other "act of God"), then FedEx will issue us a refund. We will then refund your shipping fee. Neither, Fedex nor Maximum Velocity are responsible for shipping delays due to weather or other unavoidable delays, and shipping fee refunds are not available in those situations.

Tracking

For orders shipped by a Fed Ex shipping method, a tracking code will be emailed to you on the day of shipment. This code can be used starting on the following day to track your order at the FedEx Web Site

For orders shipped by US Priority Mail, a delivery confirmation code will be emailed to you on the day of shipment. This code can be used to determine if and when a package has been delivered. You can check the delivery status of the package at the US Postal Service Web Site
