Rush is priority handling of your order during the preparation stage. It does not imply that the package will take less time in transit after it leaves our factory. It costs $1 + 8% of the value of the items in your order before discount, to a maximum of $20. Rush was designed for products that take a few days to prepare. If you rush anything that takes a few days to prepare it should ship in 1-2 business days. Rush can make your order ship the next day instead of in a week. It is most useful if you have a deadline or if you order long leadtime items and can't wait..
Large Quantities - large quantities of non stocked items may take longer than the listed preparation time. The length of the delay depends on the specific item and the quantity. For example if you order 1 full pound of 24g 1/16" stainless rings, it will take longer to prepare than the listed times. Items with stock numbers are not affected by larger amounts unless they run out and need to be made. This is why it is useful to put a deadline note on your order. A rush on large quantities may bump it up in the production schedule. We will speed up the process significantly for rush large quantity items but the item may not be able to be prepared quickly. We will email or phone if there is a problem - especially if you have a comment about a deadline.
All preparation times are estimates, but rush ensures your order will be prepared first. This helps you with the uncertainty of ranges of dates given so that you can meet your deadline. Please make sure you read all notes when in a hurry, as we would not want you to miss your deadline.
Since all information is provided up front, we will not be held responsible for missed project deadlines when ordering. If you have a firm deadline please make your decisions carefully and use all information available. You will need to decide what products fit your schedule for prep time, whether you need to use rush, and what shipping speed would work best.
