Shipping

You currently have two shipping choices: Basic ground (media mail) and Expedited (USPS priority mail or Premium International, depending on country). If you need your order filled faster, please email me directly. Being a one-woman operation, I generally fill orders within 48 hours but may take longer on weekends or during goat kidding season... Orders within the US can be signed if you add a request in the "comment" section on the shipping information page.

  1. Within the US, basic ground orders MAY take up to five business days for the order to be fulfilled (depending on how busy I am, I do guarantee to ship on Fridays), plus basic shipping (media mail) through the United States Postal System, generally 2-4 business days. Please note that these orders are non-trackable! Because I am such a small operation, I unfortunately cannot send out a free replacement if an order gets lost. So I will send you a replacement at half price of your original order. I have only ever had one shipment get lost, but still....

  2. Domestic expedited orders (within the US) will be shipped from my home within 2 business days via USPS Priority Mail, which usually take 2 business days within most of the US to get to you. These never get lost and are tracked.

  3. Whenever feasible, I use recycled paper and cardboard to package domestic orders. Please let me know during the check-out process if you want a more main-stream packaging situation.

  4. International orders that go out directly from the printer are much cheaper to ship than if I mail them from my home, depending on the country you are in, but cannot be signed.

    1. Expedited orders are printed in a rush order which takes 2-3 business days, plus processing and expedited shipping. These orders are trackable and insured. Depending on the country and delivery options, this is my recommendation for international orders, to avoid a package getting lost. If you don’t get your order, I will send you a replacement!

    2. Basic international orders take up to 5 business days to get printed, plus processing and shipping time. Please note that these orders are not trackable! If an order gets lost on the way or held up in customs, I unfortunately have to charge you half price for a replacement order. International shipping varies by country but often is very fast because books can actually get printed in the UK, in Europe, and in Australia!

    3. Signed copies that go abroad are sent from my home within 2 business days via USPS International Priority mail, which is wickedly expensive. Sorry.

 

 

Shipping Fees

Within the United States:

  • Basic shipping costs $5 per order plus $2 per book.

  • Expedited shipping costs $8 per order plus $2 per book.

For orders to the rest of the world:

  • Basic international shipping costs $11 per order plus $3 per book. This wonderful cheap option is available to most countries in Europe, as well as to Australia and New Zealand, due to the fact that I can have books printed in the UK and in Australia and shipped directly from there. Note that these orders are not trackable and that I cannot replace them for free if they get lost.

  • International Expedited costs $19 per order plus $4 per book. Unfortunately this option is not available to many countries outside of Europe, New Zealand, and Australia. Shipping with insurance and tracking from the US can get really expensive, so please get in touch with me if that concerns you.

  • If you really want a signed copy to be shipped abroad, International Expedited Signed orders cost $40 per order plus $4 per book.

  • If you are not able to get the shipping you want for your country because of limitations at check-out, do send me a note and I can calculate the exact shipping costs and give you choices.
