How do I get shipping rates and times? 

Shipping rates are available in the shopping cart
 after entering your shipping address.  Calculations are based on the distance to your location and the weight of the shipment.  

Note:  Paper Shipments are Heavy.  Freight charges are not insignificant for shipping paper, which is a relatively heavy product by comparison to many other typical retail products.  These standard rates for UPS Ground for shipping an order will range from $10 for small orders to $30 or more for larger quantity, heavier orders.   

To get the exact shipping rates, add the items you want to the shopping cart, and then follow the Check Out process.  After your shipping address is entered, the rate will be displayed on the final page or you may click on the "see rates" link for all shipping options, and the rates each, including UPS expedited delivery methods.

For shipments to Canada, import duties will apply at the time of delivery.  These are not included in your shopping cart total.  Information on these fees is available from UPS.  

Can I Get Samples of One of Your Papers? 

Sample packets are available on request to addresses in the U.S. shipped through the mail (delivery takes about 2 - 3 business days to most locations). 

The sample packets are prepared in 8.5"x11" size only, containing a few sheets each of the requested papers, each type labeled for clear identification.  Pricing information is included with the packet.

To request samples of a specific product, specify the items you are interested in and provide us with your mailing address on this form.
