UPS Ground shipping is free for all orders $79 and up.
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.
Here's an estimate of how long your shipment will take to arrive from our shop near Chicago, Illinois:
2 day service (weekdays), free tracking.
UPS 2nd Day Air is an option when you must have your work within two weekdays.
We ship anywhere! If you want your order shipped outside of the US, please contact us first.
In most cases, your prints will be completed within two to three days after we receive your order. Your prints need at least a day to dry before we ship them, to greatly reduce the likelihood of damage.
During busy times where production times are extended, we'll post a notice at the top of our home page that advises you of the current turnaround time.
