Delivery Time
We pride ourselves on our prompt shipment. Most orders ship within one business day, but we may hold your order longer in certain situations.

If you need your order by a certain date, let us know so we can put that info on your order. We can then contact you if there will be any problem with delivery.

Most orders are shipped via First Class Mail or Priority Mail. Delivery time is generally 2-3 days, but is not guaranteed. Larger orders will likely ship UPS Ground - delivery times to the West Coast are one week with UPS Ground.

We will email your tracking number when we ship your order.
Shipping to Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico
We will attempt to ship your order using the chart above. If we need to charge extra for shipping, we will contact you before we send the order. Most orders to Hawaii, Alaska and Puerto Rico are shipped via First Class mail or Priority Mail.
In most cases, large sheets of paper must be shipped separately from other items. For this reason, there is a separate Paper Shipping Charge of $12.00 for shipments to the USA (excluding HI, PR, AK, APO, FPO addresses). This is a flat rate, regardless of the number of sheets you order.

If you order books/supplies and large sheets of paper together, you must pay shipping on the book/supply total and also $12.00 shipping for the paper. For example, if you order 3 books totaling $49.95 and 20 sheets of Arches Text Wove, add $7.50 shipping for the books and $12.00 for the paper.

The shipping costs displayed during checkout DO NOT INCLUDE the extra costs for paper shipping. You need to add the Paper Shipping Charge "PS00" to your cart before checkout.

International Paper Shipping Charges:
Paper shipped to outside the US will be sent in a tube via Airmail. Postal regulations and procedures often make very large shipments of sheets of paper to other countries impractical.

The shipping charges shown during checkout are FOR USA ADDRESSES ONLY. Our international shipping charges are based on the weight of the package and the cost of shipping to the destination country.

Please place your order online using a credit card and we will email your shipping options within 1-2 days. You may also e-mail your order to info@johnnealbooks.com and request the cost of shipping and we will provide your shipping options.

We give you insured and uninsured shipping rates, but we recommend you purchase insurance. If you decline to purchase insurance and the package is lost or damaged, we will NOT be responsible for replacing your items or refunding for goods or shipping costs.

Delivery Time
Airmail generally takes 2-3 weeks depending on destination. Fastest to Canada and the UK.

Surface Mail (ISAL) normally takes 4-6 weeks. It might even take up to 8 weeks. It will take less time to smaller countries and longer time to larger countries. If your country's mail service is not safe, you should not choose Surface (ISAL).
If your delivery time is critical and you did not indicate this in the "Special Instructions" field when you placing your order, please contact us as soon as possible by phone (800-369-9598) or e-mail (info@johnnealbooks.com).

Expedited shipping methods are available (UPS Next Day Air, Second Day Air, Three Day, USPS Express Mail) for an additional cost. We are a small company. It is fairly easy for us to meet your expectations/requirements if you let us know.
