U.S. Shipping Details
THIS WEEK ONLY, all buyers (U.S. AND non-U.S.) must pay the actual cost of sending your order, plus $3 for the packaging materials (and remember as described above, some ship in flat packages and some in boxes, so if you win both types, you likely will be charged for two packages, and some of the flat items are not combinable with other flat items). After winning, you need to request a shipping quote through our Checkout system. Learn the exact details of flat rate shipping
Why don't we have a "flat rate" for U.S. orders this week, like we do most weeks? Because we are selling "very oversized" or "oversized" posters of all shapes and sizes, some of which must be sent in our custom-made extra heavy duty gorilla proof mailing tubes and others in really oversized flat packages, shipping will vary greatly depending on how many items you get, what the weight of the posters are, if they fit in the same tube or package, and where you live. Generally it will cost $35 at the very least to send an oversized tube or flat package anywhere in the U.S. by either U.S. mail or UPS, fully insured (all U.S. orders MUST be fully insured).
Can we send your order in a less expensive way? We have
purchased movie paper items many hundreds of times over the Internet
ourselves, and we have seen the tubes and oversized flat packages that other
sellers use (both the free kind and the kind purchased at shipping supply
stores), and the protection offered by those tubes is spotty at best (those
cheaper tubes will often get bent resulting in creasing or tearing to the
poster, or in extreme cases, a tube can even lose a cap from an end
resulting in the buyer receiving a tube but no posters!), so please do not
ask us to use a lighter weight tube or less expensive packing materials to save on
shipping, because we won't do it! We know that once you see our tubes
you will agree that they are a great investment in protecting your purchase(s) and you will wonder why other sellers of vintage movie paper do
not use these same tubes and oversized flat packages
(and if somehow you don't agree with us, we ask you
not to bid at all!).
Note that we not only allow you to combine as many items as you want from a single set of Tuesday, Thursday, and/or Sunday auctions, and still pay only a single shipping charge for all of the items (even if you get 100 or more, but solely from a single set!), but we also allow you to wait until the next three weeks of auctions end (a total of up to nine sets of auctions) so that you can combine your current purchases with those of our following auctions (if possible; see Learn More About Combining), and that means there is a chance you could combine items from up to nine of our sets of auctions, and still pay only a single shipping charge (assuming those items fit into the same type of package, but of course, there is a limit to how many items can fit in a single package or tube, and if you end up with several packages, you will need to pay that many shipping charges; Learn More About Combining). Since around half of our auctions have items that ship in tubes and the other half have items that ship in flat packages, and since few of those items can be combined, most of our regular buyers end up with at least two packages after three weeks. We KNOW there are other sellers who charge a little less on shipping than we do (and of course, there are others who charge far more!), but none of the ones with lower rates offer the same generous flat rate shipping we do, and we know that our packaging is the best there is, and our orders virtually never arrive damaged (and on the very rare times that they do, all our U.S. packages are fully insured, and FULL INSURANCE IS INCLUDED IN THE U.S. SHIPPING CHARGE).
AS STATED IN THE CHART ABOVE, DON'T BID ON OUR ITEMS UNLESS YOU WILL PAY THE COST OF U.S. SHIPPING PLUS $3 FOR PACKAGING MATERIALS (and on a week like this, when we use very large flat packages or boxes, the $3 usually does not come close to covering the cost of those materials). MANY OF THE ITEMS WE ARE CURRENTLY AUCTIONING WILL COST A HIGH AMOUNT TO SEND, SO BEAR THIS ADDED COST IN MIND BEFORE PLACING A BID ON THOSE ITEMS!
Non-U.S. Shipping Details
Non-U.S. buyers must pay the actual cost of shipping their order (you can choose whatever method you prefer), plus $3 for packaging materials. All non-U.S. buyers must tell us if they want the package sent insured or uninsured at the time they pay for their order. KNOW THAT IT IS USUALLY MORE EXPENSIVE (SOMETIMES MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE) TO SEND THESE OVERSIZED ITEMS OUTSIDE THE U.S., AND THE BELOW CHARTS ARE ONLY A VERY ROUGH GUIDE TO THE ACTUAL COSTS. We do not make a penny on the shipping (because we charge the actual cost), BUT PLEASE BEAR IN MIND THE SUBSTANTIAL ADDED SHIPPING COSTS BEFORE YOU PLACE A BID ON THESE ITEMS!

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Please bear these
approximate shipping cost in mind BEFORE you place a bid (if
you live outside the U.S.). The vast majority of our customers want a very
securely packed tube, and will pay the extra shipping cost involved (and of
course, it goes to the Post Office or UPS, and not us!). Please do not ask
us to pack less securely, as that would likely result in a damaged order.
AS STATED IN THE CHART ABOVE, DON'T BID ON OUR ITEMS UNLESS YOU WILL PAY THE ACTUAL COST OF SHIPPING PLUS $3 FOR PACKAGING MATERIALS (and on a week like this, when we use very large flat packages or boxes, the $3 usually does not come close to covering the cost of those materials).
