Note: At this time, we are seeing shipping delays both domestically and internationally, due to increased shipping volume and limited transportation because of the pandemic. Shipping times for all methods may be longer than listed below. If you plan to use United States Postal Service or UPS Mail Innovations for international shipping, please visit https://about.usps.com/newsroom/service-alerts/international/welcome.htm to confirm that your country is able to accept orders during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Orders are produced on a first-in, first-out basis. If your order is needed by a specific date, please plan accordingly. When you place an order you will receive an estimated date of delivery. You can also check our production status page to see estimates on how busy our production queues are. At any time you can find an estimate of how long it might take for us to produce your order.

*Value Added Taxes (VAT)
Value Added Taxes (VAT) may exist on certain international orders. These fees must be paid by the customer as TGC is not responsible for these costs. We are not able to calculate or have customers pay for these costs ahead of time. Local post offices will generally hold the package until any fees or taxes have been paid. TGC cannot legally mark orders as "gifts" under current tax laws.
International packages shipped via Mail Innovations are not trackable after they leave the US.
