For our USA customers:  The United States Post Office is experiencing sporadic delays, and orders can sometimes be slow getting to their destination.  Please understand that once they leave our office, this is out of our control.

For our Canadian customers, the United States Post Office has posted the following regarding shipping to Canada:


Canada Post advises that it is experiencing significant disruption to its daily operations due to exceptional precautionary measures taken to minimize spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). Due to considerable disruption with regard to airlines and other transport providers, service quality for international inbound and outbound services will be impacted. Canada Post is therefore declaring a situation of force majeure in relation to all international mail items

For these reasons, we will be unable to guarantee your package will reach you in a reasonable amount of time, or even if it will reach you at all for the time being.  Please consider this before placing your order.



We take great pride in our company, our commitment to customer service and in the products we sell.

Manufactured in the USA

We source materials from the USA and North America whenever we can. We believe in spending our money where we fish. Almost all of the mylar we use is produced in the USA and we are working on sourcing the remaining items we offer from local sources as well. Our customers have told us how important that is to them, and we hear you.
