U.S. Shipping Details

All buyers (U.S. AND non-U.S.) must pay the actual cost of sending your order, plus $2 for the packaging materials. Request a Shipping Quote for your Order

For Books & Auction Catalogs, Know:
All of hardcover books, softcover books, and auction catalogs will be shipped via Media Mail in the U.S., BUT THIS MEANS THAT THEY MUST BE SHIPPED SEPARATELY FROM OTHER ITEMS. So if you are from the U.S. and you purchase any of these types together with any of the other items in the auction, then you will have two packages (one that ships by Media Mail, and one that ships by Priority Mail or UPS). Media Mail shipping is typically far cheaper than Priority Mail or UPS Ground.
     PLEASE KNOW THAT BOOKS & AUCTION CATALOGS ARE HEAVY (some extremely heavy!), SO BEAR THIS IN MIND BEFORE PLACING BIDS ON THEM IF YOU LIVE OUTSIDE THE U.S. Those in the U.S. will get a great savings when those items are shipped by Media Mail, but they WILL have two packages if they purchase other types of items as well, which will up the total shipping cost.

For Bulk Lots, Know:
Since the cost to ship varies drastically depending on where the buyer lives (especially if they live outside the U.S.), we will only calculate the cost of shipping AFTER the auction is closed, and once we have the address where it will be shipped to. PLEASE NOTE THAT SOME OF THESE "BULK LOTS" ARE QUITE "BULKY", SO PLEASE LOOK AT WHAT IS CONTAINED IN THE LOT AND TAKE A GUESS AS TO HOW MUCH IT WILL COST TO GET IT SENT TO YOU (depending on where you live), AND INCLUDE THAT AMOUNT IN YOUR BID (so if you think it will cost $30 to send it to you, and you want to pay $100 for the lot, then bid $70, because you will be paying approximately $30 in shipping). Of course, some of the bulk lots are not that large, and may only cost $10 or $15 for U.S. shipping, but you should be able to get a good idea of which cost low amounts and which cost high amounts by looking at what is contained in each lot. See below for more about shipping of lots BEFORE bidding!

NOTE: In the past, we offered a "flat rate" shipping price on some of our auctions. We no longer have this, for two reasons. One is that the shipping companies have drastically raised their rates many times in the past few years, so we were losing lots of money with our flat rate. The other more important reason is that our Pay and Hold Program (see below for how this works) allows you to have your purchases sent every TWELVE weeks, which means we will only send you packages four times a year, and almost all of those packages were already being charged the actual cost anyway. We urge all of our customers to join the Pay and Hold Program, because it really saves you a massive amount on shipping!

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 oversized flat package or less expensive packing materials to save on shipping, because we won't do it! We know that once you see our tubes and oversized flat packages 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!). WHEN WE SELL OVERSIZED ITEMS, THERE ARE ALWAYS A FEW PEOPLE WHO SEEM SURPRISED BY JUST HOW MUCH IT COSTS TO SHIP THEM, AND WE DON'T WANT THAT TO HAPPEN, SO PLEASE REALIZE THAT THE SHIPPING OF THESE ITEMS MIGHT BE CONSIDERABLE, AND BEAR THAT IN MIND BEFORE YOU PLACE YOUR BID!

More Details

Missouri, California, Washington, and Illinois customers: If your order is sent within these states, we MUST collect sales tax, and we will do so automatically (unless you have a Reseller Certificate from your state in which case you need to reply to this email with a copy of that Certificate, so you can be exempted from the sales tax).

Combining Orders
We always combine shipping when it is safe to do so to save you LOTS of money, so there is a possibility of combining items from up to 18 sets of auctions (up to 24,000 items in all) as well as with our Fixed Price store items!
Here is how combining works with examples:

  • We will always automatically combine like items as much as possible so long as it is safe to do (such as "flat" package items with "flat" package items, "rolled" with "rolled", "linen" with "linen", etc). So we'll put up to 30 similar-sized rolled posters into a single tube, but no more. We will NOT combine linenbacked and non-linenbacked items because of the great chance of damage the heavy linenbacked posters can cause to non-backed posters (you may ask us to combine them anyway, but you will have to accept the risk of damage in writing).
  • Have you heard about our Pay and Hold Program? This lets buyers pay for their purchases from 12 consecutive weeks (a total of 18 auctions and around 24,000+ items!), and we then send all your purchases at once saving you LOTS of money! Click HERE to learn more about becoming one of the hundreds of our U.S. buyers who are already part of this program.
  • For Fixed Price store items, we will automatically combine your purchases from the store along with any auction purchases you have made to save you money on shipping. If items can't be combined, our Checkout will show you that, and you will be charged for the separate packages.

P.O. Box Shipping
We can offer the cheaper method of shipping between UPS or the Post Office. Sometimes (especially with packages over five pounds, but always with packages over ten pounds), it can be far cheaper to ship via UPS than the Post Office, and the difference can be substantial. When this happens, we will present you with two options: 1) You can provide us with a street address so we can send your order via UPS at the fixed rate shipping or 2) You can pay the actual cost of shipping via the Post Office to your P.O. Box.

UPS Shipping
UPS does NOT automatically require a signature to deliver packages, so if you want the signature to be required, you will need to pay the extra $5 UPS charges for "signature required" Delivery Confirmation, and please realize that they will then NOT leave the package, and you may well have to go to the UPS facility yourself to pick it up.  But if you prefer this, that is fine, and if you have any other special requirements, please tell us when you are paying for your order.  IF YOU DO NOT SPECIFY THAT YOU WANT SIGNATURE REQUIRED, THEN YOUR PACKAGE WILL BE SENT WITHOUT SIGNATURE REQUIRED!
