Shipping time

We ship orders at least once a week (except for orders that contain a pre-order item).

Once an order is shipped, the shipping time is dependent per country due to a) distance, b) customs, and c) local mail service. We are based in The Netherlands. In our experience, average shipping times are as followed*:
– The Netherlands: ± 1/2 days
– Rest of Europe: ± 1 week
– Rest of the world: ± 1 month
– South-America: ± 2 months

*These are average shipping times, but we’ve seen cases where it takes longer.

During your checkout you can choose between Standard shipping and Track ‘n Trace shipping. By default Standard shipping will be selected. Standard shipping does not include Track ‘n Track. In case you select Track ‘n Trace, you will receive a tracking link of your order once we’ve shipped your order. This link will be send to the email address that you used during checkout.
