Shipping: Fast and Inexpensive

We want to avoid unnecessary expense, and that means getting the best value for postage.

  • We make the packaging as light weight as practical while protecting the contents.
  • First Class mail is fast and cheap for small packets.
  • Sometimes Flat Rate Priority mail is a great bargain for dense (small and heavy) products.
  • And we charge you for shipping what it costs us.

Our shipping estimator considers most (but not all of the USPS options), plus FedEx Ground. It considers whether your order will fit in a flat rate box or flat rate envolope, and if that would reduce cost.

Most days we take packages to the Post Office in the late afternoon. That's in time for day's final sweep into regional mail sorting facility. There they work through the evening and night to get the mail onto trucks and planes, and out of the county. Our outgoing mail service is outstanding.

Insurance for small value parcels is not, we feel, a particularly good bargain. It may be sensible for more expensive parcels. We offer Postal insurance at cost in case it suits your needs.
