Shipping Times

Shipment Method

We ship all items via USPS Priority Mail (domestic) and Air Mail (international). Our smaller accessory items (often indicated as "Free Shipping" for domestic orders) ship via USPS First Class mail to the USA, and via Air Mail abroad. These "Free shipping" items are marked as such on our accessories page. All USPS Priority packages are shipped with Delivery Confirmation so that your items can be tracked.

Shipping Times

All orders typically ship within five business days. Personalized books may take slightly longer but on the whole Chris likes to wrap those up on a weekly basis.

If your payment is via "eCheck", we cannot not ship your merchandise until the payment clears.

Payment Info


We are a Verified U.S. Business under PayPal's strict guidelines. PayPal members can shop our store with ease and security. Non-members can always safely shop with their credit card (see below).

Credit Cards

We accept most major credit cards and use PayPal as our credit card processor. You are not required to join PayPal in order for them to process your credit card. PayPal's shopping cart is secure, fast, and easy to use.

Check and Money Order

To make a payment by mail, send your check or money order (payable in US funds, made out to "Chris Onstad") to:

Chris Onstad
PO Box 7182
San Carlos, CA 94070
Sales Tax

California Residents pay 8.25% sales tax. We then pass that money along to the state government in exchange for bumpy roads and Oakland.

Garment Info

Our Men's/Unisex Hoody is made by Hanes. They are a thick 90/10 Cotton/Poly blend. When necessary, essentially identical garments of equal or greater quality (manufactured by Russell Athletic, Port Authority, etc.) may be substituted. Please see our Sizing Chart (pop up window).

The bulk of our clothing is manufactured in the USA by AmericanApparel, a sweatshop-free company based in Los Angeles. AmericanApparel clothing has a sportier, more tailored look and feel, but standard sizing still applies. AmericanApparel clothing will shrink slightly if run through a hot dryer, so where in doubt either (a) line dry, or (b) order up a size. Please see our Sizing Chart (pop up window).

Questions about an order which has been placed, or about our products in general, should be sent to orders(at)achewood(dot)com. A reply is almost always sent the same business day, weekends and holidays excluded.

Email Newsletters

We send all customers our quarterly Achewood Town Newsletter via email. If you would prefer not to receive this email, simply "unsubscribe" from the first one you receive and you will be permanently removed from our mailing list. No hard feelings.
