A Few More FAQs

Being an on demand printer, our books do take time to be printed prior to shipping, unlike large retailers who have shelves full of products ready to ship!

Our manufacturing times will vary depending on the product you’re planning on ordering. Typically though, manufacturing takes between 2-7 business days.

Choosing the best shipping method is a person-by-person decision based on each customer's needs. Some customers require a quicker delivery, and others are more worried about the cost. Due to these different factors, there is no 1 best method.

However, when deadlines are involved we HIGHLY recommend placing your order with a faster shipping method, such as USPS Priority Mail or FedEx 2-Day for Domestic orders and FedEx International Priority for International Orders. We cannot guarantee changes to an order after it is sent for production, including the shipping method, though we do our best!

Have an order that you need ASAP, but our manufacturing times won’t get it there in time? Orders that meet the following criteria are eligible for our expedited manufacturing service.

  • Most Hardcovers and Softcovers are eligible
  • Delivery within the US
  • Single Title (Orders containing multiple titles cannot be expedited)
  • No more than 10 copies

If you wish to expedite your order, you must place that order prior to 3pm (EST). Orders that are expedited will be shipped in 1-3 business days, preceding the actual shipping transit time.

The cost for our expedite service is 25% of the order total, including shipping.

Expedited order are processed manually, so if you plan on expediting your order, we suggest leaving a note during checkout as well as Emailing Us!

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

The turnaround time from the moment your order is placed to the moment your package is delivered will vary based on several factors. Those factors include:

  • Type of product being ordered
  • Shipping method selected
  • Package destination

The delivery estimates listed above are just 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 much later than estimated, and we will take no action on these orders during that time.

FedEx has been known to be one of the most reliable shipping carriers. Providing service both Domestically and Internationally, they cover a large portion of our client base. Please read through some of these important FAQ’s about FedEx:

  • FedEx business days are Monday through Friday.
  • Tracking numbers are provided for all orders shipped via FedEx
  • FedEx does not deliver to P.O. Boxes

USPS is our most frequently used Domestic and International shipping carrier. Please read through some of these important FAQ’s about USPS:

  • USPS business days are Monday through Saturday.
  • Each USPS package receives a Delivery Confirmation number.
  • Orders being shipped to an APO/FPO (Military Mail) or PO Box must be shipped via USPS

When ordering from outside of the US, there are several factors that need to be taken into consideration.

  • International packages are delivered via the postal service of the destination country. We cannot ship to international PO Boxes.
  • We are constantly expanding our offerings and are working on securing more international shipping options. Check back for updates!

Customs Note: 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.

Order 74824, Lake Quivira Reflections

by howard johnson, 30 Aug 2011 (16:15 UTC)
Order No:74824 I ordered 2 books. Have decided I some options for a combined delivery of the 2 books after receiving an expected shipping date of Wed, Sept 7.

Super saving shipping shows 2-3 week delivery. What options can I change it to for faster delivery. That is longer than I want to wait.

After getting your suggestions how do I change and pay for it.

Howard,

Greetings from PrestoPhoto, thank you for your inquiry! When an order is placed for both Premium Photo Paper and Express Silk Photo Paper they are sent to 2 different parts of the our Production Departments, hence the 2 separate emails. However you were only charged for combined delivery!

If you are interested in speeding up your delivery time that is not a problem as long as the order has not shipped yet. Simply email us at support@prestophoto.com and we can assist you in making that happen!

Shipping Cost

by PrestoPhoto Support, 02 Aug 2011 (16:23 UTC)
I'm afraid I can't give you an exact estimate for shipping. 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.

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 and $1.99 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 consider that option.

If you have the product in your account you can add it to your cart and view all our ship method options without having to complete the checkout process or give us credit card information.
