Ground-service shipping plus a 3% handling fee will be billed. Additional shipping and handling charges will apply outside the continental United States.
While we make every effort to ship orders within 24 hours, due to the large volume of orders this time of year, most orders will ship within 5-6 business days.
**Due to the COVID-19 measures in place, our shipping process may be slower than usual, but we are working as hard and as quickly as we can!
To place a rush order, call our toll-free number and ask to speak with a customer care associate.

The number of days the package will take to reach you depends on how far you live from Winona, Minnesota, and what shipping method you select. You can use this link to UPS to get an idea of shipping times, http://www.ups.com/. On the UPS Web site, select your location if prompted. Then select the “Shipping” tab and choose “Calculate Time and Cost” from the dropdown menu.

If you need to place a rush order, we strongly recommend that you call 800-533-8095 and talk with a customer care associate.
Check out our international distributors. Buying SMP products through a distributor in your country could save considerably on shipping and handling costs and delivery time. International orders placed directly with Saint Mary's Press must be prepaid, either by Visa or MasterCard, or by a bank-issued cashier’s check. Payment should be made in U.S. dollars.
Actual shipping costs plus handling will be applied to international orders. Please specify the shipping method you prefer in the "additional comments" box on the Web order form. For smaller orders we typically use United States Postal Service (USPS) or UPS. USPS shipments will be sent insured, and the cost of the insurance will be added to the shipping and handling cost. Larger orders may be shipped by BAX Global. If requested, we will e-mail you the actual shipping and handling cost.
**The customer will be responsible to pay for any additional applicable country taxes and/or duties applied to the shipment.
