Do I need to polish or treat my Alano?
You don't have to. You can, if that's what you're into, but the leather wears nicely either way. We cannot tell you what product to use on your case because we don’t use leather treatments on our cases. We suggest testing in an inconspicuous area.
What can I clean my case with?
We tend to use sandpaper and diesel fuel to clean things around here, but I don't reccoment that. I reccomend using a soft (SLIGHTLY) dampened cloth to clean your case.

How long does it take for my case to ship?
We receive your order. We make your order. We ship your order. That can take as little as 3 days or as many as 15 (or longer during the holiday season). Remember, each cases is made by hand, right here.
How long does shipping take and what does it cost?
This all depends where you live and how quickly you want it to arrive. Shipping times do not effect production times. Ordering two day shipping does not mean that your case ships out in two days, it means that *once production is completed* it will take 2 days to get from our house to yours.

"Awaiting fulfillment" means your order has been received, and payment has been processed. You lucky duck, you have successfully made it onto the production schedule!
What does "awaiting shipment" mean?
"Awaiting shipment" means your order has entered production and will be shipped as soon as it's completed.
Will there be any customs fees?
We do not know. This depends on the country you're having it shipped to; most countries charge little or no fee. Because these are changing constantly, there is no way for us to determine if there are going to be customs fees for you, or how much they may be for you. You are responsible for all customs fees, import taxes, etc. We do not track customs charges (if there are any), so please don't ask.
My tracking number hasn't shown any movement for a while…
Did you choose USPS for a shipment outside the continental USA? If your package has already left the United States, we have no idea where it is and can't do anything about it. The USPS does not track shipments once they leave the final US sorting station. So once your package is in the hands of your country's postal service, the USPS Tracking Number stays where the USPS last had the package - in the US. If this package is important or valuable to you, we highly recommend our FedEx Global Express service, which arrives in 1 to 3 days and is fully trackable, every step of the way, from our door to yours.
