All shipping is based on weight and distance and is very close to the actual amount charged to us by UPS. In a few cases we have added the average shipping cost to the price of a set and offer "Free Shipping." Our estimates of delivery times are based on experience. Blocks are quite heavy for their cost, and expedited shipping is typically unrealistic. Around Holiday periods or during bad weather it is wise to add a day or two to these estimates
With a few exceptions, we ship your blocks with 24 hours (before 3:00 CST). The map above shows typical delivery times. We usually ship via UPS ground. Shipping to Hawaii, Alaska, US Territories and APO addresses is by USPS Priority Mail. Very large orders may require extra time. However, we will typically notify you of the exact delivery day and you will also receive delivery notifications from UPS or USPS. We ship our blocks in plain, unadorned cardboard cartons without invoices.
Be sure to watch for our free shipping offers for a simplified idea of the cost.
If you are a teacher contemplating using a Purchase Order, be sure to read and follow our instructions for using that method (bottom of the page).
