AE (ZIPs 09xxx) for Armed Forces Europe, Canada, Middle East, and Africa

AP (ZIPs 96xxx ) for Armed Forces Pacific

AA (ZIPs 34xxx) for Armed Forces Americas

For example, if the last line of your address was “APO, AP 96351″ you would select “Armed Forces Pacific”. Please note that Signature Confirmation is not available for military mail.

US Military Mail delivery times vary greatly and are beyond our control. For non-US military, standard International Shipping information and rates apply.

Please allow up to 60 business days (approximately 12 weeks) for delivery, as there are many factors which can delay international mail, chief among them being the Customs service of the destination country.

Customs Fees and Import Taxes

Your country may collect dues upon delivery. Our DBA 'Indigo Shadows' name is used for international shipments and if custom/import fees are owed this name may be listed on the invoice.

Currently, orders shipped to the UK are pre-collectively taxed 20% VAT tax. Orders shipped to Norway are pre-collectively taxed 25% VAT tax. These taxes are not included in our shipping fees. If you do not live in Norway or the UK, please contact your local post office or Customs department for more information on your country's import taxes. 

Remember, estimated shipping timeframes do not account for the time it takes for your package to get through Customs. It can sometimes take weeks for Customs to release a package. We cannot guarantee timely arrivals of international orders; order internationally at your own risk. We cannot control whether the national post of the destination country requires a signature for delivery.

Once the package gets to your country, Customs will analyze it, determine if there are duties due, and then pass it on to your national postal service.

We are legally required to include a Customs form which includes the names and value of the merchandise being mailed.
It is against company policy to declare purchases as gifts or alter the declared value for a customer. We ship discreetly in plain packages, but we must declare our originating address for Customs clearance.  No sensitive credit card information appears on our invoices.
