Shipping Information

Please note: As of January 2016 customers will see an increase in cost for standard USPS services. These changes in rates are outlined in this comprehensive notice from the United States Postal Service. Increase in rates will range from 9.4 percent increase, to 21.6 percent.


Undeliverable Packages

If an item is returned to us as undeliverable, please note that we will need to charge the additional shipping fees to re-send the package.

If you decide to cancel your order after it has been returned undeliverable, we will not be able to refund you the shipping charges.

Lost or Damaged Packages

Lost Packages: Please contact us if you have any problems with lost or damaged packages and we will address the specific situation. Please note that any correspondence with postal carriers is the responsibility of the customer, including claims for insurance or refunds on postage.

  • PLEASE NOTE: After one month past apparent delivery, we cannot refund or replace lost packages.

Damaged Items: In the event your order arrives damaged, please contact us as soon as possible and include pictures of the packaging and specific damage.

With regards to damaged prints: In the rare event that a print is damaged or flawed, we ask that you provide us with photographic evidence within 14 days of receipt. Please be sure to include all original packing materials. We will assess each situation on a case by case basis.

Rerouting Packages

If you find that you have made an error with your shipping address, please contact us with corrected shipping info.  Prior to your order being shipped, we can make the necessary changes.

After your item has shipped, it is possible to re-route UPS packages only.  Please note that re-routing a UPS package will result in an additional fee, as determined by UPS. Note that we cannot re-route UPS packages if they are already being returned to us. 

Domestic Delivery Times & Weight Restrictions

We currently use USPS and UPS for all domestic deliveries. Orders are processed and shipped out within 24 hours of receiving your order. In rare circumstances, processing time may take up to 48 hours.

If an order is placed after 2PM on Friday, please note this will not ship until the following Monday. Once shipped, please add:
    • 3 to 6 business days for USPS First-Class Class USPS (packages 15.9oz and under)
    • 2 to 3 business days for USPS Priority Mail (packages 16oz and above)

Please be advised that once your order ships from our warehouse, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that includes your tracking information.

International Shipping Rates 
On January 27th, 2013, the United States Postal Service implemented its annual price hike. While domestic service within the United States was not significantly affected, the international rates have gone up considerably. In some cases, the cost of shipping one notebook will turn out to be more than the notebook itself.

Our best recommendation for reducing the impact of this price increase on you, our customer, is to increase the size of your orders and plan on purchasing less often. Ordering one notebook on two separate occasions will be much more expensive than buying two notebooks as one order.
