The majority of the items on this can be shipped by U.S. Postal Service. The flat rate covers shipping via USPS 99% of the time. In some cases, the postage may be slightly more than the flat rate fee. I'll make up the difference in these cases.
PLEASE NOTE -- Often, a package may be particularly small and/or lightweight. In most cases, these small or lightweight packages may be sent via First Class Mail. If this is the case, you will NOT be charged the full $8.00 flat rate. Depending upon the package weight and your location, the postage charged may be as little as $2.50 - $3.00. I will always determine the most economical way to ship your package, keeping in mind that most customers want their order the day before they ordered it!
In the event that the item is over-sized or seriously heavy, there will be a note in the description of the item stating that additional shipping fees apply. These items may still be shipped via USPS, or they may be shipped via UPS or FedEx. This mainly applies to large props or stage illusions, and the odd items that have oversized dimensional weight.
I will always ship the safest and most economical way to save you as much as I can. I know postal fees have gotten out of hand, and I'm doing my best to stay informed as to the best way to ship for the best price.
ALSO - The Flat Rate shipping fee is for CONTINENTAL U.S. shipping ONLY. Sorry, Hawaii and Alaska...but it often costs as much to ship packages to you as it does to Europe! I'll handle these shipments as I do orders from outside the U.S., on a case-by-case basis. Sometimes I can absorb the additional shipping, but not always! Please contact me BEFORE ordering. Thank you for understanding!
CUSTOMERS OUTSIDE THE UNITED STATES - PLEASE contact me BEFORE ordering. The FLAT RATE does NOT apply to orders from outside the U.S. Let me know which items you'd like to order and I will check the various shipping methods available and get back to you. I do NOT add additional fees to the shipping...you will pay ONLY what it costs me to ship your order to you.
