  • Ship when all items are available.
    Items will not be shipped until entire order is complete.
  • Ship as items become available.
    Items will be shipped separately as they become available.

PLEASE NOTE: If you choose to ship items as they become available, you will be charged "per shipment" fees for each shipment.

Free book shipments are sent via USPS Media Mail. If you would prefer a faster method of shipment, you may upgrade to a different option at your expense. Free book shipping is only available for book-only orders. Shipping for all other items will be calculated according to standard rates.
