EXPRESS ORDERS DO NOT OVERRIDE DISPATCH TIMEFRAMES.
Express orders means that your order will be shipped via express post with Australia Post. They will be dispatched as per the Dispatch Timeframes above.
Please be aware the post itself has delays, which means orders will take longer to get to you. This is out of our hands and in Australia Posts. We suggest to pay for express shipping at check out, as it will be faster then standard shipping as Australia Post will EXPRESS your order.
Please add an extra day or 2 to our time frame for Flash Sales, these included but not limited to Afterpay sales, boxing day etc.

These are the time frames we strive to achieve but keep in mind at times there maybe a delay.
