With Christmas just around the corner, we really want to encourage all orders to be in by the end of November.  Increasingly, we will see slow downs in shipping times from carriers and, due to the high volume of shipments across North America,  providers are not guaranteeing shipment dates. We encourage you to order early to get stock while we have it as we are selling out of some items.  For items made in Canada, it will be first come first serve and if those items sell out we will put them into production again but it may mean a week or so to have them produced and then shipped.  

Our team is going to do the best we can to get shipments out in a timely manner and communicate with you on any delays.  We appreciate your understanding and support.  We are all committed to providing you with the best possible service during this busy and somewhat unpredictable time.

We can ship to virtually any address in the world.

We ship orders Monday, Wednesday and Friday via Canada Post. If your order misses the cut-off (around 1:30pm) it will be shipped on the next ‘shipping’ day. Customers in the US will receive their orders via United States Postal Service. Tracking numbers will be sent to the email address supplied when the order is shipped.Use the Canada Post tracking service or USPS if the shipping destination is the USA.

If you need your order rushed, just email or call us. We will do our best to get it out the same day. We ship Canada Post expedited and delivery times are normally within 3-4 business days within Canada (5-7 days to remote areas) and 5-7 business days to the USA. 

Your order may be subject to duties and taxes by the destination country. As the recipient of this order you are responsible for the payment of any duties or taxes.

Please note: If you have ordered prescription lenses they will generally be filled and shipped within 7 to 12 business days from the date of ordering.
