Shipping and Processing Charges

Delphi normally ships orders via FedEx or the U.S. Post Office. For faster delivery most items can be shipped via next day or second day air for an additional charge. For international destinations (anywhere outside the contiguous U.S.), charges will vary by destination, weight and freight carrier. During online order checkout you will be provided with shipping options and shipping charges. A few items, such as large kilns and glass crates are delivered by truck. Items requiring truck delivery will be specified in the product's description. Delphi receives very competitive freight rates - if you would like an item that is delivered by truck please proceed through your order, you will receive an emailed Freight Estimate form from a Delphi Representative within 24-48 hrs or contact Delphi for delivery options and charges.

All shipping prices are FOB Lansing, Michigan, USA. Actual shipping charges will be added to your order during checkout, based on weight and destination. All truck orders are sent "Freight Collect" and you must pay freight charges at time of delivery. Educational institutions may have the option to use "Freight Pre-Paid", please contact Delphi for more information about this option.

When you order books, DVDs and CDs, you can select Media Mail Delivery to save on shipping! This reduced rate postal service provides delivery in approximately 5-10 days for packages up to 70 pounds containing only books, DVDs and CDs. Save up to 50% off regular shipping rates when you select this shipping option for eligible orders. If your order includes any item that is not a book, DVD or CD, this shipping option will not be available and will not be shown.

Boxing charges are for items that need special handling and require special separate boxing. Boxing charges apply to sheet glass, dichroic waves/stringers/noodles, came 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.

Box Size Description Charge
Small Holds up to 12 Small or Medium pieces of sheet glass $7.95
Large Holds up to 9 Large pieces of sheet glass $9.95
Oversize For orders of 6 foot lengths of zinc, brass and copper channel, lead came and oak framing stock $9.95
