See the shipping calculator below for shipping options and cost, which includes Delivery Confirmation (when available). I usually use Media Mail as my primary shipping choice. Please note that Media Mail is rated by the Postal Service at 2-9 BUSINESS days. In other words, a package sent across country can take two weeks or longer . APO's, NPO's, Alaska, Hawaii and U.S. territories can take eight weeks or longer. If this is not satisfactory, please select a faster service when paying. If you would like a US Postal Service option that is not listed, please contact me and I will consider it. Unless otherwise indicated, insurance is optional. However, I cannot be responsible for uninsured packages that are damaged or misdirected.
International Buyers please note: Priority Mail International Flat Rate (envelope) and First Class International are not insurable. Priority or Express International Boxed Rate automatically include limited insurance. The US Postal Service no longer has a Surface Mail Rate. Note: All International packages will include a Packing Slip with the actual amount paid . Buyer is responsible for any customs fees.
