Discrete Packaging

At Glass City Pipes, we understand our customer's concerns about privacy and discretion. As a result, all of our packing is done with plain shipping material and ordinary cardboard boxes or USPS priority boxes / envelopes. There will be no mention of smoking products, smoke shops, or head shops on our packaging.
