How to Track Your Order

We provide tracking numbers with all of our shipments and will contact the carrier on your behalf should a package become lost in transit. To report a possible missing package call us toll-free at (866)-790-RODS, but please allow a reasonable amount of time (5 business days) to pass before reporting it to us.

Oversize Package Handling

There are several instances where oversize charges may be necessary to complete your shipment, typically when there are multiple packages or items that require additional freight charges. These charges will be automatically calculated at the time of checkout based on the rate table shown below. Oversize fees will be assessed once per order based on the largest item. Order as many blanks as you like - you'll only be charged once!
