We exclusively ship with USPS, but they recently did away with their "flat rate" Express Shipping boxes. This has caused Express Shipping rates to nearly quadruple (and it was already about $45 per box.) They also stopped guaranteeing the shipping time advertised with the extra fees. As a result, we decided to offer a better solution for free. When you add this item to your cart, you will still have the standard USPS Priority Shipping charge, but this will help you easily communicate with us that you're in a hurry to finish your project. When we see this, we'll automatically bump your order to the front of the line and make sure it gets shipped within 1 business day. We try to ship every order that fast, but sometimes we get a little behind, and this option will make sure that your rush order doesn't get affected by that lag.
If we see this on your order and feel that your order won't be able to go out within 1 business day, we'll email you ASAP (probably within an hour or two, during business hours) to let you know. If you don't hear from us in that time, it means your order will be going out within 1 business day. Please note that orders placed after business hours are not received by us until the next business day. So a rush order placed on a Friday night will be received Monday morning and then will ship either Monday or Tuesday (the next business day).
