The official address change request with the USPS is performed immediately upon you completing the above steps, but may take the post office 72 hours or more for their records to reflect the change. Additionally per USPS guidelines, it may take 7-10 business days for your mail to start forwarding to your new address.

After completing your order, you will receive a confirmation email from us letting you know your address change request has been submitted. This usually only takes a few minutes, but can take up to 24 hours (don’t forget to check your spam folder in case it is being filtered). Then a few days later, the USPS will send you a separate confirmation by mail to notify you that your request has officially been filed with USPS.

Q: How long does mail forwarding last?

Per USPS guidelines, mail sent to your old address will be forwarded to your new address for 12 months; will be returned to the sender informing them of the new address for the following 6 months; and then subsequently returned to the sender as non-deliverable after that.
