How long does it take to get my order?

This will vary based on several factors. In general, we require your order to be here for approximately 7 days in order to hand-craft your awards to the quality standards we have and you expect. Based on demand, these 7 days could be longer or shorter. (If you have a particular need by date, please note this in the comments at checkout and/or contact us by phone or email.) Added to production time will be the shipping that you choose at checkout. We offer the following three shipping options:

USPS Priority Mail- estimated 2-4 day

USPS Postal Express- guaranteed 1-2 day

FEDEX Commercial Express- guaranteed overnight (we cannot ship by FEDEX to P.O. boxes or overseas addresses). Guaranteed shipping times are to continental U.S.A. addresses only. APO/DPO/FPO shipments by USPS Priority Mail are an estimated 2-4 day shipping time until it reaches the military mail HUB. Once it has reached the military mail HUB, we do not have an estimated time frame for delivery.

Our standard return policy is that any unused product or custom rack can be returned back to us within three weeks of purchase for a refund. There will not any refunds issued for shipping and handling.


Can additional ribbons, medals or devices be added to my existing UltraThin sets?

Yes, in most cases additional awards can be added to existing UltraThin racks. The cost varies by the number of devices, medals, or ribbons in your current set and where the new award will fall in precedence. All we need is for you to mail the sets with instructions on what needs to be done with shipping and contact information. You can either write out the changes or send us your updated award sheet. Once we receive your request, we will contact you with the total and arrange for payment at that time. Once we receive your payment information we will have your order for about 7 business days before shipping back to you. The address to send them to is: UltraThin, PO Box 7128, Moore, OK 73153.

If you would like a cost estimate prior to sending them in for updating, please contact one of our customer service representatives at 1-800-758-7265 or email a picture of your existing rack with the updates needed to
