About Shipping

  • Orders placed through the bookstore are processed within 3-10 business days.
  • Priority orders ship in 2-3 days.
  • Express orders are shipped within 24 hours.
  • If a shipping method is not specified (e.g.,  ground), Oak Meadow will ship via the most economical method.
  • Priority or Express shipping does not mean that shipment will go by Priority/Express mail; it moves the order to the top of the list, which speeds up processing time. Oak Meadow will choose the most appropriate, economical shipping method. Please specify in the notes section of the order form if you require the materials by a specific date, and we will contact you if the shipping needs to be upgraded to meet your requirements.
  • Orders to P.O. Boxes ship via USPS or UPS Surepost.


Domestic time in transit for UPS Ground shipments can be found here (enter origin zip 05302). For UPS Surepost shipments, add 1-2 days for delivery by USPS mail carrier. Ground shipments are not guaranteed.
