Our SuperSaver Shipping methods offer a great compromise between cost and shipping times! For international shipping, if your order total is over $30.00 we offer a flat rate ship cost of $9.99. Keep in mind that this is a very slow ship method (4-8 weeks) so don't use it if you are on a deadline. If time is not an issue this is a great option! For domestic shipping, if your order total is over $30.00 we offer a $4.99 flat rate option. This is also a slow shipping method (2-3 weeks) so be sure to check your deadlines!

Orders that meet the following criteria are eligible for expedited manufacturing:

  • Delivery within the US
  • Single title (orders containing multiple titles cannot be expedited)

  • International packages are delivered via the postal service of the destination country. We cannot ship to international PO Boxes.
  • These times are estimates and may be affected by factors over which we have no control. These factors include incorrect delivery address, customs delays and Post Office delivery restrictions. Orders which are affected by these factors tend to arrive in 5-6 weeks, and we will take no action on these orders during that time.
  • Any duties or taxes levied against packages arriving from outside the destination country are determined by local Customs and Immigration agencies and are the responsibility of the recipient. we cannot be held responsible for any costs.
