Standard Flat Rate Domestic Shipping
For all domestic orders, regardless of size or quantity, we offer USPS First Class Priority Mail for a nominal flat rate of $6.95. We are only able to offer this flat rate shipping method to destinations in the United States and its holdings. Your order will typically ship either First Class or Priority Mail. Both shipping methods take 2-4 days to reach their destination once they are received by the post office. You will be provided with a tracking number to follow your package when your order is processed.
International Shipping - Priority Mail
We ship USPS Priority Mail International to most locations around the world. Your shipping cost will be calculated during checkout depending on your location. Packages shipped Priority Mail will generally take 7-14 days to reach international destinations. In rare cases, some international packages can take up to 4 weeks to reach the destination. This is entirely dependent on the destination country's customs and postal service, which is something that we have no control over. We ask that our international customers plan ahead as the order will come, it just may take time. Destinations in Canada generally arrive more quickly and take around 7 days.
ArcadiaID is now proud to offer USPS Express Shipping to most destinations domestically and internationally. Express Shipping takes 1-2 business days for domestic destinations. Most often, packages arrive overnight once they reach the postal system. International Express Mail takes approximately 5-7 days. We are unable to guarantee delivery times for International Express Mail because this depends entirely on the destination country's customs and postal service.
Although we make every effort to process your order as quickly as possible, we still may take up to 48 hours to process your order. The Express Shipping option in no way shortens the processing time.
The Express Mail shipping option is unavailable for orders with laminators or magnetic stripe encoders.
Arcadia ID Delivery

If the package is returned as undeliverable for any reason not limited to invalid address, refusal of delivery, ect, the customer must pay the cost to reship the order. We will be unable to reship the order until USPS returns the package. Also the customer will be required to pay shipping costs for orders returned to us because the package was undeliverable as addressed.
We have limited ability to track orders shipped to international destinations once the order is transferred to the destination country's customs and postal service. Because of this, ArcadiaID is not responsible for delivery of orders internationally.

We ask that international customers work with their postal service directly to work out delivery issues.
