We try to use FedEx for orders within the United States because of the superior tracking service. For cost sensitive orders or for orders outside of the United States, the United States Postal Service (USPS) is a great choice. We are a small company and we do not ship hundreds of orders a day. This means that the large carrier companies like FedEx, UPS, and USPS do not give us discounts like other retailers. We pay the same price most of you would pay, which unfortunately is higher than what even I would like to pay. It is recommended to order everything at once so the shipping cost can be spread out. If you would like to pick up the product from our Colorado Springs, CO location, you are welcome to do so for free.
