    Turnaround Times

    instock.jpg Stock Mat Colors and most other product usually ship within 4-5 business days not including the order date.

    e.g. If an order is placed Monday the order will ship by either Friday or the following Monday.
    fasttrack.jpg Any item labeled Fast-Track will ship by the next business day. If ordered with in-stock items, they will ship in 4-5 business days (see above).

    onorder.gif For items that are out of stock at time of order - but expected in soon, you can request that we notify you as soon as the item is available again.

    Non-stock colors, highly customized items, or very large quantities. We try to ship 7 business days from the receipt of the order.

    eg. For an order taken on Monday, we hope to ship the following Wednesday. However, depending on how quickly we can get the non-stock matboard, the order may be delayed by as much as 4 weeks.

    Shipping Methods

    We normally ship UPS, or USPS. To Alaska, Hawaii, and the US Virgin Islands, we use USPS Priority Mail. Other shipping methods may be available upon request. Please Note: USPS charges shown when you check-out, include a handling surcharge of 25% of the cost of the postage levied by our forward carrier.

    For faster delivery, we can ship your order via UPS 2-day Expedite, or UPS Overnight Express shipping. These options are available at checkout.

    Shipping Costs

    All orders over $250 qualify for FREE GROUND SHIPPING in the 48 continental states and subsidies of up to 50% of the shipping costs apply for customers in Alaska, Hawaii, the US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico. Orders are shipped via UPS Ground or USPS Priority Mail. Qualified orders must meet our standard turnaround and order practices.
  • Oversize package charges and special order or unusual packaging costs are not included in our Free Shipping offer. If you are ordering oversize materials, please contact us to get a quote on the cost of shipping those materials to you.

  • Please note:   We are adding a small surcharge for shipments of glass to compensate for the additional handling and packaging required.

    This surcharge will be added to your shipping charges.

    All other services other than ground shipping will be charged at the usual shipping rates. Orders under the $100 minimum will also still pay the standard carrier shipping charges. Shipping costs are calculated by both dimensional weight and distance. To view shipping costs you may call us for a quote or place items into your shopping cart and proceed through the first part (registration) of the check-out.
  • Shipping Transit Times

    UPS Ground will usually take 2 to 5 days on the West Coast and 6 to 8 days on the East Coast. See the UPS zone map for details:

    Shipping Time breakdown

    Turnaround: 4-5 Business Days (In-Stock Items)
