DELIVERY AND SHIPPING
Shipping is free to the United States, with FPO/APO addresses included. We try to have orders out the door within 24 hours, but please allow up to seven days for your package to ship, especially during our releases, and the Holidays. We ship via USPS. Shipping usually takes 3-5 days, but USPS is sometimes known to take 14-21 business days for delivery. Worldwide flat rate shipping is $20. We typically tell our international customers to place large orders, that way we eat the majority of the shipping costs. Overseas orders take 2–3 weeks, and on rare occasions they may take a little longer when going through customs. Once the package leaves the US, we have no control over how your country handles the package. Also, please note that in some cases your local country's customs may charge you taxes and/or other fees. We do not know how much those fees will be and we are not responsible for those fees. Please contact your local mail delivery service or customs department to inquire about those fees before placing your order.
Stay the Course is NOT responsible for stolen or lost packages, packages sent to the wrong address, or for refunding or replacing packages in these cases. The customer is responsible for filing all claims.
Please allow some time before you email us asking why your tracking number 'doesn't work' USPS picks up from us daily around 12-4pm. It takes them time to pick up packages, scan them in, and update their system.
If there are any issues with the order you placed please contact us by email immediately, so we can make any necessary adjustments before it is shipped. Please include your order #, as well as the needed adjustments, in your email.
If there are any issues with the order/items you received you must contact us by email within 7 days of receipt of the package. Please include your order #, as well as the issue and any pertinent pictures, in your email.
We do not handle order issues through Facebook or Instagram.
WASHING AND CARE
The garments we offer are hand-printed. To ensure the quality and integrity of the garment, we suggest washing them on machine wash cold, with an initial water temp not exceeding 30°C or 65–80°F.
All garments and fabrics that are blends are pre-shrunk to ensure a true fit after washing. To preserve the print as well as possible it is suggested to wash the garment inside out (with the printed side in).
Garments that are 100 percent cotton make shrink during washing. To avoid this, wash cold, inside out, and hang to dry.
