  • USPS Shipping Delays

    There are still shipping delays with the post office! This is especially true for international orders. International customers will probably be waiting for a month or more to receive their package. It is "normal" right now for tracking to not update for several weeks at a time. We are still not able to ship to UK due to Brexit's new tax laws.

    Read an NPR article about it here.

  • Unfortunately, shipping to the U.K. is no longer feasible.

    Due to changing laws regarding collecting and remitting VAT for orders sent to the United Kingdom, we have suspended shipping there until such time as that sorts itself out. In theory individuals are still able to ship without difficulty, but as a business it is more complicated. I will keep looking into this more to see if there is an alternative that doesn't require me to start filling paperwork in U.K.   The remaining EU countries are still clear and, in fact, we have reestablished shipping to Germany and that seems to be going better with less burocratic nonsense.

    Packages are experiencing longer than normal holiday shipping times. Your order WILL be delayed. We ship with in a day or two, but it is taking the USPS a long time to process them. It is common for packages to not to even move for a week or more. 


    "A flood of mail and online holiday purchases is overwhelming the U.S. shipping system. An estimated 6 million packages a day are being left stranded, sitting idle in retailers' warehouses or shipping centers and awaiting pick up by FedEx, UPS, Amazon, U.S. Postal Service and other shippers."

  • USPS Holiday Shipping Delays

    The post office has been delayed due to holiday volume. That means packages are taking longer to arrive and may not make it in time for Christmas. We usually ship within 1-2 business days, but after that, it's out of our control. International orders will especially be delayed.

  • International Shipping

    We have resumed international shipping but THERE ARE STILL DELAYS!! International shipping is seeming to take a reasonable transit  time, so we have started shipping overseas again. If shipping times become very slow, we will have to suspend it again.

  • 3D Printing and Historical Reenacting

    Recently 3D printing has crossed a threshold which has made it practical and useful for reenacting. However, it is still a long way from having the dramatic life altering impact that many people seem to think. I wanted to take some time to put my thoughts on 3D printing into writing to help other people understand what 3D printing will mean for historical reenacting and help some people decide if they want to get involved and how it may effect their reenacting experience.

    Reminder: INTERNATIONAL SHIPMENTS WILL BE DELAYED BECAUSE OF COVID-19!!! This means that the tracking number may go several weeks with no movement as the USPS International Distribution Centers are moving very slowly. IT MAY TAKE OVER 2 MONTHS TO ARRIVE. We recognize the frustration of things not seeming to move for a whole month, but please understand there is nothing we can do to make it arrive faster. There are simply not as many flights for parcels.
