Laminar Product Order Information

Please read this page, especially customers outside the U.S.
This page assumes shipping of one item (lip, Touring lip, Speed Shield, kwiKover) weighing 2-3 pounds unless specified otherwise.

Be sure to fill in the shopping cart form completely and whenever applicable, the following:
  1. Your name, billing address, complete shipping address (if different) and phone.
    • If you come from a country (Japan, Hungary, and former Soviet countries are good examples) that does not use the same computer character set as we do in America (UNICODE) please e-mail (ASCII text only) your address. Or, write your address (by hand) and fax it to +1.714.540.8006. This way we understand where to mail your product.
  2. Your fax number and/or e-mail address.
  3. Visa or Mastercard number and expiration date.(No need for mail or fax orders, but do include these written legibly when sending us your order.)
  4. Preferred Shipping (UPS Ground is default for 48 States, Express International Mail is default for International Orders)
  5. You will be given the option to either process the order online via secure server or print the order for you to mail or fax to us (will not process your credit card online when printing for mail/fax).

California residents, and orders being shipped to California, regardless of billing address must add 8.00% state sales tax $6.72 per lip or speed shield, or $7.52 per Touring lip ).

On-line orders will receive a confirming e-mail. If you do not receive this e-mail either your order was not processed or your e-mail address did not work (perhaps your site barred our email) or you have installed a spam blocker which requests us to identify and invite ourselves into your allowed incoming messages (we will not click these links. Please add laminarlip.com to your allowed domains prior to ordering). Note: Personal checks may require up to 14 days to clear before shipment; you may prefer to use a credit card and our secure on-line order form (the secure padlock will appear when you send the order).

If your address does not comform to US style address formatting, please use the "Special Ordering Instructions" on our cart checkout page to include your address per your country's post office format.


When will it arrive?

  1. We make all Laminar products in California, and are usually able to ship the same or the next business day.
  2. We suggest you order well before the date you need it by, in order to get your products in time. Use the UPS map below to determine approximate delivery times for UPS Ground.
  3. If using a quicker UPS shipping method other than Ground, keep in mind that UPS does not consider weekends or holidays as business days. If you live in Southern California (one day shipping time) save yourself some money and use UPS Ground, not Next Day air. It will be there in the same amount of time for much less. Also don't pay for 3-day select if you live in a 2 or 3 day Ground zone. View the UPS photo below to determine how long it will take via UPS Ground.
  4. Time your order correctly. Ordering UPS 2nd day air on a Thursday or Friday? Or perhaps 3-Day Select on a Wednesday? You will not receive your package until AFTER the weekend. Saturday delivery (via UPS 3-day Select, 2nd Day Air, or Next day Air) is available for additional shipping surcharge, you must call us to have UPS Saturday delivery as the website cannot offer this service.
  5. USPS Priority Mail is also a very inexpensive and quick shipping option. It usually takes 48 hours for delivery from the time we ship, but then again we can't speak for the US Postal service. There is no tracking number via Priority Mail, however, there is Saturday delivery.
  6. If you have procrastinated until the last moment, USPS Express Mail (Next day to most areas) is FAR less expensive than UPS Next Day Air, but make your order prior to 10:00AM PST (when our postman picks up the mail) or preferably the day before.

Shipping

48 States

We recommend UPS Ground which includes(almost) real time tracking and up to $100 insurance, it's approximately $10.00-$13.00 (for first 2-3 pound item and can cost more or less depending on whether you are remote or next door to us.) A second (and third) item (again, 2-3 pounds) can be included for an additional $2.00 each. U. S. Mail service (Priority Mail) is also available at an approximate $11.00 price. Find a buddy to order with and save almost 10%. In a rush? Approximate costs for one 2-3 pound item via UPS are: UPS 3-day ($17); UPS 2nd day($22); UPS Next Day ($45). UPS cannot ship to Post Office boxes and do not normally ship on weekends (Call us if you need UPS Saturday Delivery). All these prices can vary because they are determined by how far you are from us in southern California and how remote you are from the shipper’s hubs. U.S. Postal Service Priority Mail is the least expensive service having 2 day turnaround time (to most places in 48 states), delivery on Saturdays, but does not have tracking. The best "bang-for-buck/for-certain" delivery is U.S. postal service Express mail. It is much less pricey in comparison to UPS Non-Ground methods, delivers (usually) the next day, delivers Saturday and Sunday (!!!), has tracking, and costs about $25

Hawaii & Alaska

We recommend U. S. Mail, “usps.com” to show the cost. Assume 3 pounds from 92704, 8 pounds for shield or shield combo. Add $2. to the cost for handling.

Canada

We recommend Express Mail International for about $27, this is insured and the Post Office claims delivery in 3-5 days. (Customs may add a day or more, plus Canadian Post will also need to deliver locally to you) Canadian Postal Service won't ship Express Mail International to a P.O. Box. When shipping by mail there is no brokerage charge, though taxes and tariffs may apply. The kwiKover does not qualify for NAFTA. However, all other Laminar products do.

All other countries

Priority Mail International is the best way to ship (about $33 for a 2-3 pound package to most European Countries and slightly more for most Asian countries. Canadians, see three headings above, ehh?). This type of shipment usually takes 3 to 5 days, but it can take longer, it is insured and trackable to your local Post Office. You can check at " usps.com " (the U.S. Postal Service) to see what shipping to your country should cost. (add $2 for handling) We can also add insurance (about $2.50) to each package if shipped by Air Parcel Post. This shipment should take about 10 days, BUT .....over a month or 5 weeks is not uncommon, and this method has NO TRACKING. Some countries, such as South Africa(and to compound issues, only in certain cities), do not allow Express shipping and thus shipments usually take a long time. Laminar ships within three days of the order but we have no way to check, track or hurry Air Parcel Post orders. Your country may also charge you a tariff/tax to import our parts, we are not able to alter our invoice, to lessen this charge, since we intend to continue doing business there.
