Preorder Information

A preorder involves placing an order for an item in order to inform production planning. This purchasing approach enables us to offer various colors by producing only the required number of units based on preorder quantities. The estimated shipping time frame will be indicated on the product page for each specific item.

The projected delivery windows for each item, which vary due to different production timelines, will be posted on the product page. Please be aware that deliveries to Alaska and Hawaii, and any countries outside of the United States, might experience slightly longer transit times.
