PRINTED ORDER FORM

IMPORTANT SHIPPING INFORMATION
We make every attempt to ship your order as quickly as possible - usually within a few days after receiving it. However, under normal circumstances, please allow 1 - 3 weeks for us to process your order, especially when ordering 10 packs or specimen collections which are not prepared until we receive your order and payment. Our processing time is 1-3 weeks for smaller orders and 3-8 weeks for larger orders.
In the continental US, small packages (less than 25 lbs) are typically shipped via USPS Priority Mail. Transit time, once shipped, is usually about 2 - 5 business days. Larger packages (more than 25 lbs) are generally shipped via UPS ground which usually requires 5 - 8 business days for delivery.
Orders from Alaska, Hawaii & Puerto Rico are typically shipped via US Postal Service Priority Mail. If possible they are shipped in US Postal Service Flat Rate boxes, which keeps the shipping costs to these locations more in line with the online calculated shipping charges. However, if a larger size box is required for shipping, then the customer may be notified by e-mail of the additonal amount of Postal Service charges over and above those calculated when placing the order online from our website.
Orders from Canada. We only accept small orders (20 lb maximum) and preferrably those that can fit into either a large, medium, or small flat rate box as provided by the US Postal Office. We have turned off the ability on our website to make a purchase outside the United States, so you will need to send an email to us at: firstname.lastname@example.org for further information as to how to proceed with an order.
PLEASE NOTE: We No Longer Ship To Any International Location (Except Canada as noted above). As a small company it has become beyond our capabilities to provide this service.
