2019 Shipping Charge Change
2019 Shipping Price Change: (VERY IMPORTANT, Please Read).
Since we started in 2000 we have offered $5.00 media, and $10.00 priority shipping. Over the past 20 years our costs have increased dramatically (more than double what we paid in 2000, and in many cases more than that). Unfortunately, we are no longer able to offer the $5.00 and $10.00 shipping.
Our choices were to increase product pricing to cover the shipping costs or begin charging the actual cost of shipping for our products. In the future, the shipping amount charged will be the ACTUAL COST of shipping plus a $3.50 processing and handling fee. USPS Media Mail, USPS Parcel Select, USPS Priority Mail, and FedEx Ground shipping options will be available. At the time of your order you will be shown the cost and estimated delivery time for your order, and you can select the one that best matches your cost and delivery needs.
The determining factors of your cost will be weight of your shipment, distance from our shipping location in the Dallas, TX area, and how quickly you want the order. For small/individual orders the increase will be small, but for large/team orders needing to go a great distance (like Oregon or Maine) via Priority Mail or FedEx the cost increase will be significant.
To save on shipping, we recommend purchasing your materials at Nationals Finals, NAYC or General Conference. Priority mail and FedEx shipments will experience the largest increase in cost.
SAVE BY ORDERING EARLY. In order to save on shipping order WELL IN ADVANCE of when the materials are needed. The slower method of shipping (Media Mail) is much more cost effective that Priority Mail, or FedEx shipping, but takes longer to arrive.
SAVE BY COMBINING ORDERS. Another "cost saving tip" is to combine your order from others in your church. An order for a single item incurs the same $3.50 handling charge as an order for multiple items. Also, shipping a heavy box (multiple items) is more cost effective than shipping a light weight (single item) box.
