Mailing & Postage
Most of the time, items are sent using the United States Postal Service. They are normally sent Priority Mail (which normally takes 2 to 3 days). This will cost you a flat $8.65. Books on the other hand are usually sent Media Mail which is much cheaper and much slower. Sometimes on overseas shipping, if the item is much more than $8.65, an email will be sent requesting more payment for postage. If no response is received from the email, the item will be sent "surface mail", in other words, by ship - and that takes a very long time.
On the other hand, many folks need their items overnight or a 2-day delivery. Yes, we can do this. Normally we ship FedEx. Please understand that overnight delivery is more expensive. Whatever the actual cost is what you will be charged. A ballpark estimate of something between 1 and 16 ounces would be $24 for overnight delivery or $18 for 2nd day delivery using FedEx (reminder - the cost just quoted is just a 'guess' and not the exact amount). By the way, if your company has a FedEx number, we can use that instead.
How can I use FedEx?
The web checkout system does not support anything other the normal USPS amount for shipping ($8.65). For that reason, if you want overnight delivery or 2nd day delivery, you will need to call your order in. Our telephone number is 719-258-9319. You will need to know what you want to order and also your credit card number at that time. We will package your order and then add the overnight charge to it. You will only be charged what the actual cost ends up to be, nothing extra.
Finally, we are not in the office 100% of the time. More than not, we are in the shipping or stocking rooms. You may have to leave a message, but we will call right back. Sometimes orders are heavy and do require more postage. We will contact you in that case. Rest assured that in 95% of the cases, the postage is no more than $7.90 (amber is light.) If you really need something quickly, this is an easy way to do it.
