Q: Why are the shipping charges on your Holiday decorations so high?
A: They may seem so, but they are not. In fact, they are actually lower then what we are billed for. Remember, these items are bulky and light-weight. Therefore they are charged/billed using the weight dimensional factor, which is used and designed by the shipping industry. There is simply no way out of it. For more information on weight dimensional... CLICK HERE.
Q: If i choose Next Day or 2nd Day Air shipping will i get it accordingly?

Q: Can i trust your company?
A: Take your chance! Of course you can. You probably have been referred by a particular manufacturer. These manufacturers know that we live up to our reputation, that's why they referred you to us. Superior service at an affordable price.
Q: The manufacture I talked to says that this item is no longer avaliable, you say it is... is it?
A: When you call their help line, the associate is giving you what little information is avaliable to them. Believe it or not, our infomation at times is more accurate.
Q: How come the shipping and handling charges are so much?
A: Fact is they are not. We have found that we have some of the most reasonable shipping and handling charges on the net. We even box multiple packages together when possible, and charge you less were others will not do this. Shipping and handling prices also contain "minimum" extra charges for materials like; tape, kraft paper, bubble wraping, misc labels etc etc etc.
Q: Can I paint my product ?
A: One of the past manufacturers tells us that you can; plastic molds should be spray painted with a small spray type of gun(not from a can or the like) . Do not use any paints that have acrylic or acrylic base. Acrylic will eat the plastic. Krylon is a great brand, but you should choose carefully.
Q: I left a message for someone to call me back, but have not heard from anyone, WHY?
A: We at times get calls from cellular devices and the like. Cell phones have a tendency to "skip". If you skipped while leaving your number, we did not get it. Speak clearly, leave the number two (2) times along with your area code and TIME ZONE(PST-MST-EST-CST, etc), or your answer is listed here-in.
Q: How come it takes so long to get my order?
A: It may have been possible we were out of the item you requested, so it may be coming manufacturer direct.
Q: I don't feel safe faxing my check. Can I mail it?

Q: How come you do not ship outside of the US Mainland?
A: Shipping cost are to expensive and it's a big hassle, simply put.

A We live in an abrasive world like never before.
