Ordering Information

Please make sure you read this before ordering. It will most likely answer any questions you might have!

All orders are shipped from Canada. Shipping times obviously vary (i.e. depending on if you live in a major urban center, depending on if it's a holiday season, etc.) Orders shipped within Canada USUALLY arrive within a week. Mail from Canada to the USA will take a bit longer than that. The typical time we've noticed for orders to go from Canada to the USA is approximately three weeks. Sometimes it's less, sometimes a bit more.

Some people seem to think we all have a "magical postal service" that can get mail to anywhere in the world in about 5 days. That kind of delivery is called courier and costs a lot more money. So if people want courier delivery then the CD/shirt with shipping would cost about three times as much as it is listed. We wanted to make this clear because some people worry if their order does not show up in a few of days. We can't do anything to speed up delivery unless you want to pay for courier shipping. If that's the case, you'd better e-mail us before ordering. If your order does not arrive after 5 weeks then it's time to worry (orders around peak mail times such as Christmas might take this long to arrive though!). Since we've had this CD store online in 1999 there has been hardly been any lost mail. Those packages that did get lost were primarily sent to countries with a less than reliable mail service (South American countries anyone?).  Since we are a small organization and we hardly make any profit from this, we can not afford to offer replacements for stolen or lost packages. Once the goods are shipped and are into the hands of the postal service, it's THEIR responsibility to make sure your mail gets into your hands. If you have a problem with this, then you can pay extra for registered mail shipping and we will send it with the options for Delivery Confirmation & coverage for loss or damage. If you chose this method, e-mail us your order and we can give you the price for what this will cost.
