Quality Packaging for Safe Fast  Delivery

to all U.S. Destinations

Fast and safe shipping is a priority. Many of our items are one of a kind or are considered scarce, and it is important to us they arrive in the condition shown in the photographs and as described.

COMBINED Shipping Discounts. We will also combine most paper items to reduce shipping costs only if the items can be safely shipped together. Multiple ADS ship safely with Prints and Photos and similar paper items. We tend not to combine any 3-d collectibles with paper items unless they can be safely packed together. Some small 3-d items or mixed media paper packs will be perfectly fine to safely ship together in a Bubble Mailer and when this is an option, we will do so to save on our shipping costs. Please send us an inquiry via e-mail ( regarding combined shipping discounts on multiple purchases. We will make any necessary changes to be sure you receive a shipping discount at checkout on any multiple purchases which are safe to ship together.

SMALL Size  Ads, Postcards, Small Prints and Small Photographs are placed in a clear, rigid protective sleeve (BCW Supplies) inside a bifold style greeting card for best protection. These items will be shipped in a standard small greeting card mailing envelope by USPS First Class Mail without USPS Delivery Tracking and Confirmation. The mailing envelope will be stamped in red ink: NON-MACHINABLE  DO NOT BEND. 


If a small size paper item needs extra special protection, due to fragile condition or scarcity for example, it it will be shipped in a BOX to include USPS Delivery Tracking and Confirmation. Multiple purchases of small paper items, usually over 3 pieces, will be shipped BOXED for best protection. 

Large size ADS, Prints and Large Photographs are shipped FLAT and in a BOX to include USPS Delivery Tracking and Confirmation. They are protected by a quality archival backing board and archival safe plastic sleeve (BCW Supplies). We ship one or multiple large size paper items in this type of package. Combined shipping discounts are available for multiple AD, Print and Photograph purchases. The Boxes provide great protection during the shipping process and prevent the enclosed paper items from being folded! 



 OVERSIZE Ads and Prints are carefully rolled and shipped in a rigid cardboard TUBE with plastic endcaps for maximum protection to include USPS Delivery Tracking and Confirmation.


BOOKS, Book Bundles and Books in Mixed Media packs will ship by USPS Media Mail with Delivery Tracking and Confirmation. Majority of Books will be shipped BOXED; small paperback books or similar will ship in a Bubble Mailer or FLAT rigid cardboard mailer.  

MIXED MEDIA Paper Packs will ship by USPS First Class mail with Delivery Tracking and Confirmation. Depending on the size of the package, the pack will be shipped in a Bubble Mailer, Rigid Mailer or BOX. 

Graphic Tees, Caps or Ties will be shipped in a plastic bag mailer with Delivery Tracking and Confirmation.


Small Collectibles will almost always ship in a Box by USPS First Class Mail with Delivery Confirmation. Very small collectibles, such as a vintage key, token or small metal printing block will ship in a bubble mailer. Some small collectibles are so delicate, they require shipping in a small box (like a jewelry box) inside a bubble mailer or inside another box.

Medium to Large Collectibles and Antiques (glass trays, souvenir plates, etc.) will often ship by USPS Priority Mail in a BOX with Tracking and Delivery. And for very large items, like a cabinet or sewing machine,  it is likely we will ship the item by UPS and this will be noted in the description..

 INTERNATIONAL Shipping is Available, for a shipping fee, to specific countries and for select paper items: Ads, Prints, Illustrations, Photographs, Postcards, Stamps and Greeting Cards

PLEASE Send an e-mail inquiry about the item(s) you are interested in purchasing. If the item is available for International Shipping and your location is on our list of countries we are set up to ship to, we will calculate the shipping fee and send an offer for you to purchase. 

Orders are shipped by USPS International Package Shipping. International orders will be shipped by Tube or Bubble Mailer and sometimes in a small Box. Postcards, stamps, snapshots are shipped in a small greeting card size envelope. Items will be combined to save International customers shipping fees when possible, and only if items can be shipped together in a safe manner. 

International Shipping is generally not available for large or heavy Collectibles, Books, and oversize or large rigid Prints as the International shipping costs have escalated dramatically and for many packages the fees are now prohibitive. For these items, we usually include the tag line, *No international shipping due to size and weight of package.  There are exceptions or special circumstances as described in the next paragraph.

In special circumstances, and at an international customer's request, we will mail large size packages to your preferred authorized U.S. mail receiving/forwarding agency. We do not provide a list of service providers nor do we endorse a particular agency. All special requests are approved or denied on an individual basis. Please send an e-mail request with details.
