Our SuperSaver Shipping methods offer a great compromise between cost and shipping times! For international shipping, if your order total is over $30.00 we offer a flat rate ship cost of $15.99. Keep in mind that this is a very slow ship method (4-8 weeks) so don't use it if you are on a deadline. If time is not an issue this is a great option! For domestic shipping, if your order total is over $30.00 we offer a $4.99 flat rate for domestic shipments - this shipping method generally delivers within 2-3 weeks once production is complete. Feel free to check with us on what ship method would be best for you based on your deadline via Live Chat or email, we're happy to help!

How long are the manufacturing (production) times?

Softcover manufacturing time takes between 2-4 business days*
Hardcover manufacturing time takes between 4-6 business days*
(*Estimates are for orders of 25 books or less and precede shipping time)

My deadline is tight! Is expediting my order possible?

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

  • Most hardcovers or softcovers
  • Delivery within 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, which will precede the actual shipping transit time. The cost for expedited manufacturing is 25% of the ENTIRE order, including shipping. Expedited orders are processed manually, and we suggest you email us 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)?

Typically, delivery within the US takes a week and it can take anywhere from 1 - 8 weeks for International, depending on the shipping method.
Please note: these are estimates since delivery time completely depends on the ship to address, package weight, and shipping method selected.

NOTE:

  • 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.
  • Duties or taxes levied for 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 Duties or Customs Taxes.

Laana,

Greetings from PrestoPhoto, we do ship to New Zealand!

I'm afraid I can't give you an exact estimate for shipping time. Ship time and cost depend on the ship to address, weight of package, and most importantly ship method selected. Thus, it is not possible to provide an accurate ship cost.

If you have the product in your account you can add it to your cart and view all the ship method(time) options that will be available for you without having to complete the checkout process or give us credit card information.

What about bulk orders? How much shipping per book if book cost is $25.00 each. Say, on an order of 35 books?

Melissa,

Hello! The ship time and cost depend on the ship to address, weight of package, and most importantly ship method selected. Thus, it is not possible to provide an accurate ship cost.

If your order total is over $30.00, we offer a flat rate ship cost of $7.99 for international shipping and $1.99 for domestic. This is available for bulk orders however it is not tracked so not suggested and is a very slow ship method so don't use it if you are on a deadline.

If you have the product in your account you can add it to your cart and view all the ship method(time) options that will be available for you without having to complete the checkout process or give us credit card information.

We do offer a ship cost estimator. All you need to do is put your book in your shopping cart and click the Get an Instant Shipping Quote! link at the bottom of the page.

If your order total is over $30.00, we offer a flat rate ship cost of $7.99 for international shipping. 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 consider that option.
