A: Delphi normally ships orders via U.S. Postal Service (USPS) or FedEx. Charges will vary by destination, weight and freight carrier. Size and weight restrictions also vary by carrier and country. If you choose to order an item that cannot be shipped, we will contact you. During online order checkout, you will be provided with shipping options and shipping charges. A few items, such as large kilns and glass creates, are delivered by truck. We apologize, but we are unable to ship these items internationally at this time. Items requiring truck delivery will be specified in the product's description.

When choosing FedEx for international shipping there will be additional currier fees.

Q: What are boxing charges and when do they apply?
A: Boxing charges are for items that need special handling and require special separate boxing. Boxing charges apply to sheet glass, dichroic waves/stringers/noodles, cames and framing stock only. Please note that pre-made glass packs do NOT incur a separate boxing charge. If boxing charges apply to your order, they will be added automatically, so you can review your total shipping and handling charges before you finalize your order. Please note that we cannot mix small or medium glass pieces with large pieces. The size differential of the glass pieces creates undue breakage. Sheet glass and came will ship separately from other craft supplies.

Small Box Holds up to 12 Small or Medium pieces of sheet glass $7.95
Large Box Holds up to 9 Large pieces of sheet glass $9.95
Oversize Box For orders of 6 foot lengths of zinc, brass and copper channel,

If you notice a back ordered item on your order during the checkout process please make note that your order will not process immediately but will automatically hold to ship the order complete. Delphi will backorder items temporarily out of stock up to 30 days. On rare occasions when a backorder last longer than 30 days you will be notified via email or postcard and given the option to cancel or continue to wait for the back ordered item.
