UPS Ground shipping is free for all orders $79 and up.
You can select $5.49 USPS First Class Package shipping for print orders that don't weigh much, like a few 8x10's or 12x18's, etc. (Framed prints and canvases must ship via UPS Ground.)
The ordering system calculates the weight of your prints and automatically offers you the USPS First Class Package option when possible.
If USPS First Class Package services isn't shown as an option, the order must be shipped via UPS, and you'll be offered UPS Ground instead.
Note: With USPS First Class Package service, your prints might take 1-3 weeks or longer to arrive. Don't select this service if it's important that your package gets delivered within a week. Select UPS Ground instead.
UPS Ground is available for all shipments and is highly reliable. Orders almost always get to their destination within 2-5 business days.
Our print prices are so low, we must add on our actual UPS Ground shipping costs, which are normally about $11.95.
If your shipping charge is $16.95, it means that UPS is charging us a lot extra because your zip code is within what they call an Extended Delivery Area. We make no profit on this charge; we're just passing UPS's charges to us on to you.
Our price, including shipping, is still the lowest around—compare and see!
If we charged less for shipping, we'd have to raise print prices to make up for it, which could cost you more money:
Our way: Let's say a print currently costs $4 each, with an $11.95 shipping fee. You order 5 prints. Total cost for 5 prints=$4 x 5 = $20, +$11.95 = $31.95.
Some of our competitors: If we lowered our shipping charge to, say, $4.99, we'd have to raise the print price to $10 each to make up for it. Total cost for 5 prints=$10 x 5 = $50, +$11.95 = $61.95.
