Shipping Policy

Media Mail Shipping

The first book is $2.99 to ship and each additional book is $.50. 

Guidelines:

• Media Mail shipping is available for eligible items only, as defined by the USPS. Excluded classes include calendars, mugs, and other non-book items. We do our best to make sure that the Media Mail option does not appear on orders containing items that are not eligible, but and error on our part does not constitute a contract to ship non-qualifying items at the Media Mail rate. 

• Media Mail shipping is available only within the U.S. It is not fully trackable, not insured, and can take 10 business days or more. Please note that while the overwhelming majority of packages shipped via Media Mail arrive within the time specified above, in rare cases shipments can take 3 to 5 weeks to arrive. Alaska, Hawaii, Guam, Puerto Rico and APO/FPO addresses: Media Mail shipments can take 3 to 8 weeks to arrive.

• Orders will be shipped when all available items have been gathered. In-stock items will not be shipped individually. We recommend placing pre-orders separately so that shipping of in-stock items is not delayed. Media Mail covers one shipment only, to one address. 

 

Priority Mail

USPS Priority Mail shipping for most items is $8 for the first item and $4 for each additional item. 

Priority Mail shipping is available for US addresses only. 

Packages arrive 1 to 3 business days after mailing. Please allow 1 to 3 days for order processing. Orders will be held until complete. Delivery time is not guaranteed to Alaska and Hawaii.
