We have 2 methods of shipping to you. Both are by Post Office Airmail, as we do not have a surface method available to us for shipments out of the U.S.

  1. Airmail Envelope. This method uses a paper envelope and works for small books the size of a book from Morning Sun. We can fit 2 Morning Sun books or the equivalent into 1 envelope. However, this is a greater chance of damage to the book.
  2. The other method is also U.S. Postal Airmail but uses a box. We can fit anything from 1 large book to 6 Morning Sun size books into this box for the same price.
NEW - We are working with a company to provide you with ISAL service in the near future. This is a combination of surface and airmail. However, there is no tracking record. In addition, this service can take several months for the package to arrive. As soon as this service is available, we will have it available on our website.

All books shipped inside the state of California will be charged the appropriate sales tax, 8.50%.

Books may be returned within two (2) weeks in new condition for exchange or refund. Please call 760-736-9288, or contact us for instructions.
