Unless you state otherwise we will unroll jelly rolls and do whatever is necessary without damaging your order to minimize shipping costs for International or Domestic shipments. We normally use multiple envelopes to minimize shipping costs for International orders over 10 yards @ $20.00 each for Mexico or Canada and $24.00 each for the rest of the world.
All shipping charges on your order are approximate and will be adjusted when necessary to agree with actual cost. You will always only be charged the actual amount that it costs to ship your order to you.
If you have a need to receive your order quicker than the stated intervals here, we can use Express Mail International (5 day delivery) or Domestic (overnight) but the associated costs will vary by location and weight. We can use your favorite shipper as well if you provide the proper information to have it billed to your existing account with them.
