The US Post Office is experiencing volume heavier than holiday time frames - every day.
This the case for UPS and Fedex as well.
Most customers are selecting priority shipping in hopes of things getting to them faster.
For free shipping ("first class postage"), there is nothing we can do to speed up the post office :-(
Please note that we can only ship same day when orders arrive before 3PM (pacific) monday - friday (noon on saturdays). If your order comes in after these times, your order will be processed immediately the following business day. We can not ship if the post office is closed such as Federal Holidays.
