Always allow 24-48 hours for picking and packing your order before calculating ship time, especially when requesting UPS next day or second day service. Also, orders that include items printed on demand require additional time.

Email orders are also accepted for organizations with an active credit account in good standing, upon verification of the order.

For individuals, invoices will be emailed directly to the email address listed on your account. For organizations with an open account, invoices will be sent directly to the email address of the primary contact person listed with your account. 

Orders on open organizational credit accounts that are in arrears will be placed on credit hold until the account is cleared. If you have a question about your account, please contact our bookkeeper.

Orders Take 24-48 Hours to Process

We process orders during regular business hours, Monday through Friday (excluding holidays). Your order takes time to be picked and packed before it is shipped. Please allow 24-48 hours for this processing. Delivery options such as next day, second day, ground, etc. reflect the only shipping time AFTER your order has been packed and UPS has picked it up. For example, if you place your order on Monday morning and choose Next Day shipping, your order will be turned over to UPS on Tuesday or Wednesday and will get to you on Wednesday or Thursday.

Shipping and Delivery

Shipping and Delivery is the charge for internet order processing, item selection, packaging, transport, and handling. Shipping and Delivery charges are subject to change and are determined when you order.

We offer two shipping methods:

  • UPS (Ground, Next Day, etc): your order is automatically tracked and insured up to $100. You will receive a tracking number for your UPS shipment when your order is shipped. We strongly recommend using the UPS option.
  • USPS Media Mail: this is a lower cost mailing option suited for one or two items. These shipments are NOT insured for loss or failure to deliver. We cannot replace lost USPS Media Mail shipments.

All orders are shipped from Jackson TN 38301. Although we do not guarantee delivery times on standard UPS shipments, we do our best to provide accurate estimates.You can get an estimate of UPS shipping time by using the interactive UPS map here. 

Deliveries occur only on weekdays. If you refuse your shipment or if your order is returned to us after unsuccessful delivery attempts, we will consider the merchandise returned. Your account will be credited for the items, less the amount of shipping both ways and a restocking fee. Important: YOU MUST use a street address for UPS shipments. UPS will NOT ship to addresses that use PO Boxes. If you place an order that cannot be delivered because you used a PO Box, UPS will simply return it to us, and we will have to charge you again to ship the package, plus a return shipment fee.

Sorry, we cannot provide pick up from our New Jersey location. We no longer have books on-site in our editorial offices.
