Shipping
What is your shipping policy?

Typically, we ship via United States Postal Service (USPS).  For 1-3 books, the most cost-efficient method is via Media Mail (2-8 business days).  For more than 3 books, USPS Priority Mail (1-3 business days) may be more reasonable.  Please be aware that Media Mail is not insurable, and we cannot be responsible for damage to packages after they leave our hands.  If you would like your package to be insured, consider upgrading your shipping method to USPS Priority Mail.  Contact us if you would like to determine which method best suits your needs.

Where Do You Ship From?

All orders ship from our location in Rancho Mirage, CA.  Rancho Mirage is in the Coachella Valley near Palm Springs.

How Long Will It Take For My Order To Ship?

We will always do our best to expedite pre-shipping handling, however please allow 2-4 days for order processing.  You will be notified when your order ships, and tracking information will be provided.

Do You Ship To PO Boxes?

Yes.

What Shipping Options Do You Offer?

We offer two basic domestic shipping methods:

  • USPS Media Mail (2-8 business days)

  • USPS Priority Mail (1-3 business days)

International orders are dependent on package weight and destination.  Please contact us.

How Much Does Domestic Shipping Cost?

The cost of Media Mail is dependent on destination and package weight, however, we have assigned an average cost of $7.00 for one book and $11.00 for two.

Priority Mail is a flat rate of $17 for 1-4 books and $22 for 5 books.  For shipping of 6 or more books, please contact us and we will determine the best method and rate to fit your needs.

One important distinction between Priority Mail and Media Mail is that Media Mail is not insured or insurable.  Priority Mail will at least partially insure your package.  Please be aware of this limitation when selecting Media Mail.
