Shipping and Return Policy

Gift items | Mugs, shirts, artwork, and other merchandise items usually ship separately from books that are ordered. Merchandise items must also be shipped to a street address, not a post office box.

Book orders | To save you money we ship through USPS, however, if you need immediate delivery, call in your order and have it expedited.

Shipping and handling charges (United States only):

Most orders ship the day we receive them at our fulfillment center. During peak periods we can experience a one or two day delay. AVERAGE delivery time is 7-12 days from receipt of an order. Orders are shipped via USPS from the website. Special shipping requests carry an additional handling charge.

Shipping prices will be determined by order size and according to USPS standard rates.

Canadian Orders

If you order from Canada, and you choose USPS as your mailing method, please understand that in addition to the USPS charge on this order, a customs brokerage fee may be collected from you upon delivery of the order. Also, keep in mind that your order delivery time may take longer than 2-3 weeks.

International Orders | For international orders we will ship via Priority Mail International.

Please note | Occasionally we run short of an item ordered. We will ship the balance of your order and notify you of any backordered item.

Please not do contact our office about non-delivery of an item less than four weeks from the date of your order. Delays can occur which are out of our control.

Backorders | Occasionally demand exceeds the supply of our exceptional books and other articles. When you phone in your order, we can advise you of the current status of any item you want to purchase.
