FREE AIRMAIL SHIPPING

for a total purchase of $200 or more.

U.S. Customers: Spend $200 on total purchase and get FREE EXPRESS SHIPPING (3-10 days, includes tracking): a $25 value!

 

If free shipping does not appear on your invoice when it should,

please let us invoice you before making payment.

 

 

We ship using high quality clear-plastic acid-free bags, foam-core backing, or rigid mailing tubes for larger items.

 

We use Canada Post for most items and we are well-versed in all the rates and options for the U.S., Canada and Overseas. Our shipping rates are below the actual cost, and we combine items for free (or only a small fraction of the cost). You can verify the rates at: canadapost.ca.

 

We combine shipping on all maps and prints. There is no 'per item' charge.

 

Note that, since we are located in Canada, shipping to the U.S. takes longer than it does between two points within the U.S. We ALWAYS ship within two working day of receiving payment, and often ship the same day; however, we have no control over how long it takes from here.

 

Based on economical reasons (item types, price, lower cost for buyers, etc.) and as part of Ebay Deals, most of our standard shipping methods have NO TRACKING. All our shipping methods are shown below. Of course, we can always provide some options when tracking is required. Please contact us If you require express delivery with tracking or for special assistance. We normally use XpressPost or Expedited Parcel by Canada Post, or FedEx Express or FedEx Ground for time-sensitive shipments (tracking and guaranteed delivery included).

 

Sellers' fees are now tied to detailed feedback. Please remember where we are shipping from and that we ship at below our actual cost when you leave feedback about shipping times and/or costs. In case you encounter any problems with your purchase, please contact us directly as suggested by Ebay and Paypal before contacting them.

We accept Paypal. Cash upon local pick-up is also fine.

  • Payment is preferred within three days, and required within seven days. If you've spent more than $100 and won't be paying for several days, please just send a quick e-mail to let us know.

  • We do not accept personal cheques.

  • Non-paying buyers will be reported to Ebay. This is the only way we can recover the fees that Ebay charges us upon your agreement to purchase.

  • Please make sure that you have correct delivery address on your eBay and Paypal account. Leave a note in your Paypal payment or send a message through eBay if you need your items to be delivered to a different address. WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE TO RETRIEVE ANY SHIPPED ITEMS FOR ANY INCORRECT OR NON-DELIVERED ADDRESSES. We normally receive returned/non-delivered items after 2-3 months from the original shipping date. If requested, we will send an invoice for the re-shipping and ship the item after received payment.

Any item can be returned for a full refund within seven days of purchase (and shipping, if we've made a mistake). If you are in any way dissatisfied with your purchase, please contact us immediately.
