Important News about

Oversize Shipments!!

Due to carrier surcharges, increased rates and reduced service, MatShop will no longer include Free Shipping for orders that are Over Size and no longer fit into the carrier's requirements.

This means that shipments of oversize mats, frames and even some boxes of full size matboard sheets may no longer be able to ship free - regardless of meeting the required dollar value.

If you are ordering oversize materials, please contact us to get a quote on the cost of shipping those materials to you.

We take great care in our packaging and handling to ensure your order arrives to you safely. We ship FOB Ferndale, WA. Your order will be shipped via UPS Ground Service unless otherwise specified. UPS Ground delivers to the West Coast in approximately 2 to 3 days and orders to the East Coast will take approximately 7 to 9 days.

Expedited shipping is available at your request.
