Handling fees are charged for phone/email or fax orders. They range from $0 for orders over $200 to $8 for smaller complicated orders (like one each of lots of kinds of pen blanks needing to be labeled for example). See bottom of page for handling fees and how they are calculated on non-internet completed orders.

----it is a good idea to refresh pages of websites like ours every time you look at them. The reason is they are updated so often that your computer is not checking for updates and shows you an old saved version of the page. Go into your internet option settings and make sure it says "check for a newer version of the page each time I visit", but even then sometimes you have to refresh pages to see the newest version.

 Call 970-241-2827 for phone orders. Email for questions is best but not req'd.

and receive UPS/USPS shipping at what it costs us to ship + a charge of $3.00 for box/tape for each box in your order. Phone orders are required if you have complicated needs/requests requiring a good bit of extra assistance or if you are ordering anything not available on the website.
Please NOTE: Free and discounted shipping is NOT available for phone orders. The minimum for phone orders is $50.00 (not including shipping/handling). Phone order shipping is always higher than shipping on the internet and phone orders always have handling charges. The reason is that our costs (and time invested) are higher for phone orders.

*If your order qualifies for Free or Discounted Shipping: Some exceptions apply. You must use SUPER SAVER for your shipping option.     Shipping costs that WE are paying on your behalf may not exceed 10% of what YOU are paying for wood/services. You will be billed for amounts above 10% in the shopping cart. Free or discounted shipping is now available in Hawaii or Alaska with SUPER SAVER, but check other options to make sure it is the cheapest way. Clearance items do not receive free shipping unless that item specifically says free shipping is included and you select the shipping option it tells you to select.  Free and discounted shipping is not available for orders completed anyway except on this website.* For free or discounted shipping, we will ship at our discretion with the carrier that is cheapest, and we must have an address that allows UPS and Mail (USPS), or two addresses if they are different..  SUPER SAVER SHIPPING can take from 3-12 days to arrive.

HANDLING FEES: For most orders (that don't checkout and pay in the shopping cart) handling charges are $3. For phone/email/fax orders over $200 in wood purchases, there is now free handling. For orders under $200 in wood that have over 15 different types of items (multiple quantities of exact same items count as 1 type of item) , the handling fee is $8 to cover the extra time. The average internet order takes 13 minutes to process, pack and label. The average phone order takes 1 hour 5 minutes to take the order, manually charge the card, write up the required detailed invoice, and pack and label . This is why we must add the handling fees, to partially cover the extra time involved in non-internet purchases.

*We will pay up to half of your shipping (at our discretion) if you make an order over $500 by phone/email/fax and request a shipping discount. The discount is not automatic and we never pay more then half in that case. Shipping is not retroactively discounted after your order is finalized, so requests for discounts must be made at the time you place the order.
