Still time to order for Christmas delivery! Gift Certificates also available!

Our elves are busy at the Thunderbird Atlatl shop. We are working closely with delivery services to make sure orders go out in time for delivery by Christmas. We usually use priority mail because our post office is just down the street and delivery is pretty quick. We also can ship via UPS/Fed Ex/DHL if that works better for you.

The post office says the last day to ship priority mail for delivery by Christmas is Saturday, December 21. If you want to guarantee delivery, we can ship via Priority Mail Express. There is an extra charge but delivery is guaranteed.

Worried about delivery and not sure what to get for a gift, you can order a gift certificate. We can send the gift certificate in regular mail or deliver it via email. An atlatl kit also makes a nice gift and is a great holiday project.
