Other delays are caused by general seasonal delay, Finnish Postal Service (may delay 1-2 days), Exportation procedure, paperwork and hold of merchadise for export (may cause 1-2 day delay), To our experience - however - the longest delay is caused by US postal services. The postal service is unable to locate the exact reason or track or trace regular mail at US end but we are told that shipments reach JFK airport postal terminal in 1-2 days after our dispatch.
If you choose Postal delivery it with your understanding that there may be delays in delivery and delays in recovery if item is lost or damaged.

IMPORTANT: Your Shipping Address
Please, note that if you choose our regular way of shipping, which is the AIR MAIL the address must be in accordance with Postal Service of your country (i.e. US Postal Service). In other words if you do not receive your domestic mail to the address that you give us to ship to mailman will not deliver to that address but will hold it somewhere until it will be returned to us as "address unknown or non-deliverable". This is typical if you live in rural area and your mail will be delivered to RR box or P.O.Box somewhere at distance. In these cases we can send via AIR MAIL only if the address is the same as where you usually receive your everyday mail. In case of postal delivery to your box a note of arrival will be delivered to your box.
