How Books are Packed

When books are completed, they are usually packed in 8.5x11x12 inch or 9x12x12.5 inch carboard boxes, depending on the book size. We reinforce the boxes with extra padding to prevent movement within the box during shipping. Most boxes weigh between 25lbs to 43lbs. To get an estimate of your order’s weight, use the Get a Price tool and continue to "Checkout" to see your total shipping weight and price.

How Books are Shipped

After the final invoice is paid in full, we ship books using UPS Ground, UPS Expedited, UPS Freight (TForce Freight), and some USPS options. Shipping method options are dependent on order specs and your location. Some shipping methods may not be available to all location and orders.
