 July 9th 2023 USPS Rate Increase

As of July 9, 2023 - the USPS has chosen to change the name of First Class Mail to USPS Ground Advantage (Parcel Select Ground) and they have increased the weight for that class (FIRST CLASS was previously limited to 15.9 ounces), so the end result is an actual decrease in the cost to ship more than three DVDs at one time.

On May 10th 2023, the United States Postal Service filed notice with the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) of shipping services price changes and to establish proposed published pricing for its new product offering, USPS Ground Advantage. These changes are to take effect July 9th, 2023.

Why are the prices changing?

As part of its 10-year plan to achieve financial sustainability and service excellence, the Postal Service is asking the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) to review proposed increases to some of its prices of shipping services.

If favorably reviewed by the Commission, the proposed increases will raise First-Class Mail prices approximately 5.4 percent to offset the rise in inflation.



We ask that you allow up to five business days from the time you place your order until it ships (sometimes it will differ, depending on the items ordered). And we TRY to ship the same day or day after on orders, whenever we can.

Love and peace to you all.

We do everything in our power to keep our shipping costs down, while maintaining good, secure and protective packaging for all of your purchases.

We gladly and proudly ship WORLDWIDE.

All international customers are responsible for any duty and/or taxes on imported goods.

Shipping costs are calculated at the time of checkout by the automated shopping cart system, based upon your location, the number of items and final shipping weight of your order, and the shipping method you choose. You always have the opportunity to review this cost prior to finalizing an order.

Regarding shipping options, there are many: (First Class, Priority, Express, International First Class, International Priority and DHL) so they are not stated prior to checkout. It really just depends on how fast you want it.

Our cut-off deadline for Express Mail is 3:00pm (Pacific Time Zone) Monday through Friday - (on Christmas Eve - the cut-off is 1:00pm). Of course, we accept Express Mail orders after that time - each and every day - but if an order is posted later than 3:00pm (Pacific Time Zone) we may not post it until the next business day. A signature is required for all Express Mail orders.

When your order is placed we automatically send an email with your order confirmation. Please look for this information prior to contacting us. It may be in your spam or trash, if you have filters in place.

When your order is processed for shipping you are automatically sent an email (to the email address given on your order) with the USPS tracking information. If you don't find it, it might be in your spam folder, as it contains links. Please check in your email prior to contacting us regarding the tracking number - if the order has been processed for shipping - the USPS Tracking Number has already been sent!

If we deem it reasonable to ship with a Signature Required, we will do so (at our cost), but the customer will be required to sign for a package prior to delivery.
