Shipping and handling
Shipping and handling (S & H) is calculated on a order-quantity and shipping-method basis.  The size of your order and shipping method you choose will ultimately determine what your S & H charges will be.   Print Orders are shipped on the next business day in all cases except for extremely large orders. Orders containing gift items could take up to an additional day to clear production.

First Class
First class shipping is standard USPS mail and is available for smaller quantity orders.  Domestic customers can expect to receive their orders in 3-5 business days from the time it is shipped depending on their location.

Priority Mail
Priority mail is a speedier version of First Class.  For enveloped-prints and flat-print packaging, orders are incremented for an additional .50¢ per / 5  and for tube-packed prints for an additional .50¢ per print.  The USPS maintains that all domestic orders will generally arrive within 2-3 business days from the time they are shipped.

2nd Day Shipping
2nd day shipping means that your order should arrive within 2 business days of the time it is shipped domestically.  Incremental  S & H rates are available for large order quantities.

Overnight Shipping
Overnight shipping will guarantee that your order placed will ship by the next business day.Incremental   S & H rates are available for large order quantities.

International Shipping
International shipping times and rates will vary upon location and products ordered.  Rates will be calculated and displayed during your ordering process.  International customers are responsible for all Duties and V.A.T. that may be added to the cost of your order upon receipt.  All our pricing and shipping charges are in U.S. funds.

Multiple Destination Orders
We allow you have parts of your order shipped to various destinatations. If you should choose to take advantage of this time saving feature, S & H charges will apply to each part of the order, or for each address you ship to.

 Selecting Your Shipping Method

Glossary


2nd Day Shipping:  Gallery is pleased to provide you with "next business day" shipping. With weekends and holidays of course the next business day is not necessarily the next calendar day. For instance if you placed an order after noon on a Friday your order will ship on Monday. To ensure you receive your order in a timely manner, please be aware that holidays and weekends affect "the next business day".      [top]

Duties & VAT:  Please remember, there may be duties and taxes imposed on your order that aren't reflected in our prices. Check with your local Customs Office for those charges. Most of our customers think they're a small price to pay for the quality of the merchandise received. All our pricing and shipping charges are in U.S. funds.       [top]

Enveloped Print:  Prints sized wallet, 4x6 and 5x7 are able to be shipped in our envelope packaging. Anything larger than these sized must be flat packed for optimal protection.     [top]

First Class:  Standard Mail is the least expensive method of shipping your order to you.  In most cases it will take between 3 and 5 days to arrive at your location.     [top]

Flack Packed Prints:  Prints 8x10 and 8x12 will be packaged and shipped in a rigid cardboard "flat pack" envelope. Due to their size, shipping options for flat packed prints begin with Priority Mail and increase in expense from there. Sometimes, if you order includes both 8x10 prints as well as smaller sizes, all can be shipped in the same flat packed enveloped.     [top]

Handling:  Handling charges help us pay for the time and expense it costs us to process, sort, cut and package your order by hand.  Each order can have many pieces which need to be collated and checked for quality before being shipped to you.  This time consuming and important  process ensures that your order will be handled as if it were our own by our lab professionals and carefully packaged to avoid shipping damage.  Our desire is for you to receive the highest quality prints in perfect condition and a timely manner every time you place an order.      [top]

Incremental Rates:  For enveloped-prints and flat-print packaging, orders are incremented for an additional .50¢ per / 5  and for tube-packed prints for an additional .50¢ per print.      [top]

Overnight Shipping
Overnight shipping means that your order should arrive to you by the next business day from the time that it is shipped.      [top]

Priority Mail:  Priority Mail is what the United States Post Office (USPS) usually uses for most deliveries.  The USPS maintains that within the United States this normally means a 2-3 day delivery.     [top]

Tubed Prints:  Prints sized 11x14 or greater must be shipped in a cardboard tube to ensure their protection during shipment. If you have a multi part order with several pieces, these tubes can be placed in a larger box with the other parts to your order to save you the expense of us having to ship you multiple items.     [top]
