Drop Ship (marketing): Within 48 hours of receiving an order, it is forwarded to the Copyright holder, author, publisher, etc. (usually by postal system). That person maintains all book inventory and controls shipment. After they receive the order, they fill/ship it within 10 days. Due to the many individuals and businesses as well as different shipping methods Gregath does not guarantee a specific carrier or class. If the person has failed to inform Gregath as to an out of print status, a full refund is issued for the unavailable book. See Also Special Order

New Gregath shipping and handling starts February 1 Thursday, Dec 20 2012 

United States Postal Service (USPS) rates go up January 27, 2013. While we were able to not raise our rates the last time USPS did, our standard S&H will rise from $11.00 for first item to $12.00 for first item (additional items remain the same at $2.00 per). We will allow a small grace period and plan on implementing the raise in S&H February 1, 2013.

Please note that we did not change our S&H when USPS raised rates in 2012, but the 2013 9% average raise wasn’t one we could absorb.

Holiday Postal Shipping Information Tuesday, Nov 20 2012 

Friendly reminder, from USPS supplied information, on those Christmas shipping dates: Once you’ve made your purchase and had it wrapped and packaged for shipping (or allowed your retailer time to process the order), the dates below are the last dates suggested to ship for Christmas delivery –

Sending somewhere in the United States? Get it in the mail by December 22 if you are sending Express (overnight) mail, or December 21 for Priority.

Sending outside the US? Deadlines begin December 3 for Priority, go through December 11 for Express, and finalize December 17 for Global Express Guaranteed.

Don’t forget to buy some forever stamps in 2012 – they will be worth an extra penny in by February, 2013. Christmas forever stamps from this year will still be good for future holidays!
