Please not that our shipping policy (below) differs from that of our eclipse website (due to safety reasons).  Return policy for ECLIPSE GLASSES: 

Due to the nature of our Eclipse glasses product being considered a safety item, we will not be able to accept returns on eclipse glasses once your order has been processed.  Also, please check to make sure you have the correct address for shipping before you submit your order.  We are not able to change or cancel your order once it is processed and a label is created as we have thousands of orders daily and unfortunately, we cannot find your order once we have completed it.  

Our business hours are 8:00 am to 5:00 pm Central Standard Time, Monday – Friday. Orders will ship out 48 hours after receiving them (Monday- Friday). Orders placed over the weekend (Saturday and Sunday) will ship out 72 hours after receiving them. If you have a time constraint and need something in a hurry, please call us at 1-800-767-8427 within our business hours and we will make sure to do our best to get your order out same day.

Shipping and handling rates are calculated by number of items and the location shipping to.  Charges for shipping and handling on this site represent freight costs that will cover the maximum quantity (no more than 1,000 of any item, product or style) that can be ordered online. For larger orders (over 1,000) please call Customer Service.
