Personalized Customer Service

We’re a small company; just a handful of dedicated team members! This means we can offer our customers something that many large corporations cannot – personalized customer service. A while back we received a number of comments on our Facebook Page regarding high shipping costs. Since we pull our shipping rates directly from FedEx, shipping rates are something we have little control over. Despite this, we wanted to do something to help our customers out, so we launched Free Shipping for orders over $200!

Have a special request or a concern about your order? Just ask us! We may not be able to solve every problem, every time, but rest assured your feedback is being heard and is truly valued.
