If your order total is over $30.00 we offer a flat rate ship cost of $9.99 for international shipping and $2.99 for domestic. This is a very slow ship method so don't use it if you are on a deadline. If time is not an issue then you may want to consider this option.

How long are the manufacturing (production) times?

Softcover manufacturing time takes between 4-7 business days*
Hardcover manufacturing time takes between 5-10 business days*
(*Estimates are for orders of 25 books or less)

My deadline is tight! Is expediting my order possible?

Orders that meet the following criteria are eligible for expedited manufacturing:

  • Express softcover
  • Being delivered in the US.
  • Single title (Orders containing multiple titles cannot be expedited)
  • No more than 10 copies

Orders must be placed before 3PM (EST) to be shipped in 2-3 business days. The cost for expedited manufacturing is 25% of the ENTIRE order. Expedited orders are processed manually, and we suggest you email as well as leave an order note during checkout.

To learn all about expediting the manufacturing time of your order please read our Expediting Orders page.

What is the expected delivery time to (insert destination here)?

Delivery time depends on the ship to address, package weight, and shipping method selected. Typically, delivery within the US takes a week and it takes approximately 3 weeks for delivery from the US to the UK. We are working to improve this time to about 2 weeks and hope to have that in place soon.


  • FedEx business days are Monday through Friday. Tracking numbers are available for all Fedex orders. Fedex does not deliver to Post Office (PO) Boxes.
  • USPS business days are Monday through Saturday. USPS customers receive a Delivery Confirmation number for each package. All orders addressed to an APO or FPO (military mail) or Post Office Box must be shipped via USPS.
  • International packages are delivered via the postal service of the destination country. We cannot ship to international PO Boxes.
  • These times are estimates and may be affected by factors over which we have no control. These factors include incorrect delivery address, customs delays and Post Office delivery restrictions. Orders which are affected by these factors tend to arrive in 5-6 weeks, and we will take no action on these orders during that time.
  • Any duties or taxes levied against packages arriving from outside the destination country are determined by local Customs and Immigration agencies and are the responsibility of the recipient. We cannot be held responsible for any costs.


Shipping to Australia 3070

How do I enter shipping address for Northcote, Melbourne Victoria 3070, Australia on the PrestoPhoto online shipping form? It doesn't allow international shipping to be entered.

Shipping times to 30656

by paul, Mon 22 of Sep, 2014 (18:10 UTC)
Can you tell me the shipping times and cost to 30656. Also what costs would be associated with expediting this to FEDEX two day delivery around Thanksgiving. If I upload images for a Express 5x7 book on Wednesday, 11-26 and need to order 30-50 books when can I expect these with normal delivery and expedited FedEx 2 day being that Thanksgiving is on the 27th.
Thank you, Paul

Shipping to Greece

Hello, i would like to know if you ship books in Greece and if you know if i am going to pay any taxes etc. Thank you.

Hey I just ordered a book and chose FedEx 2 day shipping. Does this mean I will get the book around Wednesday or Thursday? Or is this 2 days after the book has been made. I need the book for Friday and am hoping I didn't make a mistake.

Shipping to St. Louis

by Bobby Waclawik, Wed 09 of Apr, 2014 (01:21 UTC)
Hi I'm just wondering how long it will take from the time it ships if i chose the USPS ground option

Hi Bobby!

USPS Priority Mail generally takes about 2-3 business days and USPS Media Mail takes about 5-7 business days. Though I cannot guarantee it, if you choose USPS Priority, I bet it would get to St. Louis in 2 days. :)

Please let us know if you have any other questions!

Warm regards,

Do you ship to South-east Asia? If yes, how much does it costs to ship to Brunei Darussalam?

Hello and thank you for your question!

Yes, we ship all over the world. We offer an international shipping option that costs $9.99 and takes 4-8 weeks for delivery.

I hope this helps! If you there is anything else we can assist you with, please do not hesitate to ask. :)

Warm regards,

How long will it take?

How long will it take to ship to Manhattan, NY, NY if I order it on Monday before 3pm.
I need portfolio book ready by Wednesday morning to hand it in by Wednesday.
Please let me know if it is possible to be sent before Wednesday.
Thank you.

Hi there! I would love to be able to tell you, "yes, we can do this!" but the reality is that it is simply impossible with the on-demand printing technology that is available to us. Manufacturing precedes shipping on all orders. Manufacturing time runs from 4-7 business days for softcover books, and 5-10 business days for hardcover books. We'd be more than happy to print your portfolio for you, but it will sadly not be in time for your deadline of this Wednesday.

Warm regards,
