The prices for USPS Priority Mail and UPS are automatically generated by each carrier based on weight and distance traveled. We are unable to ship paper that is not insured.

Packages are taking much longer in transit than prior to the pandemic and we do not have any additional information on packages other than that provided by the carrier.
