 Please note: Express Orders must be in our system by 10AM in order to be shipped that same day.
FedEx has an early cut-off time due to our location.
Orders that arrive after 10AM will be shipped the following business day.

If you're placing an express order on a Friday, please realize that you will loose two days due to the weekend. Overnight orders placed on Friday will have the option of a Saturday Delivery. This of course will result in an additional charge. Please call us for an exact quote upon placing this type of order.

Shipping Update Notice (01/30/06)
All orders shipped via FedEx will be shipped without a signature request, the exception being orders over $500.00. This will automatically be done at the time of processing on our end at no additonal cost.
To secure that your order is not left by a FedEx driver in an unsecure area on your premises or office building, you MUST select the appropriate shipping services that specifies "Signature Required".  An additional $3.00 will be added to your shipping cost. This is the amount that FedEx charges us when this service is selected.
Orders shipped without this service will be the responsibility of the purchaser.

Please note as of 2/28/2005, the above modifications have been made to our shipping services and rates. For order destinations in the U.S., we have added Overnight and Express Saver options. Sometimes these rates may vary depending upon the actual weight of an order. 

Order destinations outside the U.S. are only being shipped via E.M.S., an express service from the post office. Due to world affairs being what they are today, often times as of late, orders become extremely delayed in customs. Orders that are shipped via U.S. Air do not have tracking numbers and cannot be traced or claimed if lost or delayed. All orders that are shipped EMS, include tracking and insurance.

At this time we will no longer ship to the following countries:
Romania, Latvia, Malaysia, Mauritius, Macedonia, Iran, Singapore.

    

Most U.S. orders are shipped via FedEx. It takes approximately 3-7 business days to reach a U. S. destination. Express shipping is guaranteed in 2 business days. Overseas shipping is approximately 25% of the order total. Our shipping calculations are based on a 2-year study of our shipping invoices throughout the world. We ship many larger items as opposed to the smaller close-up items found in many of the on-line shops. We also run line sales several times a year from 10-20% OFF as well as specials. The system is set to automate the shipping charges based on the order amount. In the rare event shipping is unually high due to low weight, but higher priced items, we will adjust down the shipping rate to what it should be according to the U.S.P.S. web site.

The average order whose value is under $50.00, costs about $5.75-$6.50 to ship. If the props are heavy, it will cost us more and we pay the difference, unless otherwise noted. We also pick up the shipping charges for U.S. orders that are $200.00 or more. Twice in 2001 and once in 2002, the Post Office increased their costs. ANOTHER BIG INCREASE IN 2006. Overseas orders are charged 20-25% of their order total. We found that 20-25% of the total sale has been very close to the actual charge; sometimes a bit more, sometimes a bit less. Most of the hardcore magic shops run 20-25% on overseas shipping.  Order destinations outside the U.S. are only being shipped via E.M.S., an express service from the post office. Lag time runs 3-5 business days, barring any unforseen delays in customs. We surveyed other magic companies to be certain we were in-line with our shipping costs...and we were.

On a side note...

Many overseas countries apply additional taxes and customs charges to a package arriving from an overseas destination. Please check with your local post office and customs office for their rates and charges.
