Shipping and Handling:

All LP’s are securely packaged in a protective shipping mailer/box.  The mailers are made of stiff cardboard and I've found them to be very reliable.  In order to take advantage of the shipping discounts on multiple purchases, please pay for all items in one transaction.  When calculating the shipping, please note a Double LP Set is considered two LP's, Boxed Collections are based on the # of discs in the collection.


Shipping and handling rates (and associated shipping discounts for multiple purchases) are as follows, based on destination:

<?xml:namespace prefix = "st1" />USA  - $4.00 1st LP + $1.00 each additional LP  (Media Mail)

Canada  - $13.00 1st LP + $5.00 each additional LP  (Airmail/First Class International)

Mexico  - $20.00 1st LP + $7.00 each additional LP  (Airmail/First Class International)

International (all other)  - $20.00 1st LP + $7.00 each additional LP  (Airmail/First Class International)


Domestic/USA Customers - The normal/default shipping method is 'Media Mail' via the US Postal Service, since that's the method I've found most people choose.  It is a little slower than Priority Mail, but cheaper and very reliable.  The Post Office says delivery time is 3-9 days, though it's usually to you in less than a week.
