Shipping

SHIPPING: Our Shipping / Packaging charges include the rates charged by the carriers we use, the costs of packaging materials and labor costs associated with wrapping and packing orders. We ship the least expensive way. Within the 48 contiguous states this will usually be via Ground FedEx or Ground United Parcel Service (UPS). We reserve the right to ship by any other carrier at our discretion. If you wish an order shipped via a specific carrier, please note that there may be additional charges for special handling. Our Shipping / Packaging charges are not a profit center for Contemporary Frame Co.

Please note that there is no additional shipping/packaging charge on certain items. Some items have additional shipping surcharges due to quantity or size restrictions. (see charges for different categories/products below).

Please review this web page or catalog carefully for charges applicable to each specific product. Please note that some items have a Small Quantity Surcharge in addition to the regular shipping charges.

Unless specifically indicated different categories of items/products may not be combined in calculating shipping/packaging charges. Each category of items/products has it’s own shipping/packaging charges. (see below) Example: Metal and Wood Sectional Frames are combined for determining shipping/packaging charges. Our shopping cart will show all shipping/packaging, handling/insurance, oversize surcharges and small quantity surcharges. Connecticut Sales Tax, if required, will not show in the shopping cart but will appear prior to your final acceptance and confirmation of your order.

PICKING UP YOUR ORDER: If you wish to pick up your order in person, please indicate this at Checkout. You will then be notified with a specific date upon which your order will be ready. DO NOT place an order and just show up. We will notify you via email when your order is ready for pickup. If you would like to pick up your order on a specific day please indicate this in the comments section and we will confirm via email if this will be possible. Orders will be scheduled for pickup Monday through Friday from 10: 00 AM to 4: 45 PM. Pick Up Orders are not boxed and therefore not subject to Shipping / Packaging or Handling / Insurance charges. If you request that a pick up order be boxed, you will be sent an email with the charges for boxing.

CONNECTICUT STATE SALES TAX: Connecticut residents or anyone picking up an order in person must include appropriate sales tax, unless you have provided us with a Sales and Use Tax Resale Certificate as required by the State of Connecticut. A link to the Connecticut Department of Revenue Service Sales and Use Tax Forms is included in the Checkout procedure. Link to Tax Forms..

For Overnight, 2nd Day Air, 3 Day Select, Priority Mail, etc: Place your order on our toll free line 800-243-0386 during our business hours Monday – Friday 10: 00 am thru 5: 00. Shipping charges are based on the size and weight of the package(s) as well as the shipping address. Our Handling/Insurance Fees and a special rush processing fee of $20. 00 will also be added to your order. Orders requiring special shipping are not shipped without customer approval.

Handling/Insurance Fee
: 1% ($1. 50 minimum) on total order. Our handling/insurance fee covers the actual cost of insuring your packages plus costs (including labor costs) associated with tracking packages and processing and filing claims.

Metal and Wood Sectional Frames : shipped within one - three business days (cont. 48 states). These two categories are combined for determining the Shipping / Packaging charges. No minimum quantity requirements.

Oversize A: For packages 48" but less than 60", the surcharge is $6. 00.

Each box of 25 ships at an Oversize A or B charge depending on the size, i. e. 26 sheets would require two boxes so there would be two Oversize charges, 51 sheets would require three boxes thus three Oversize charges, etc. Example: You order one 16x20 cut triple mat, a cut foamboard and a cut glazing as well as a 24x36 cut foamboard and glazing. The shipping/packaging charge would be Oversize B plus a small quantity surcharge of $11. 00 (the total number of items is only seven).

Our boxes have been designed to meet UPS size limitations. However, minor edge and corner damage may still occur.

SHIPPING TO AK, HI, PR, APO, FPO, Canada, USVI, etc
. Items shipped to these addresses are sent via the United States Postal Service (USPS). A handling/insurance fee of 1% ($1. 50 minimum) will be added to each order. Shipping is 35% of the order or the actual cost of the shipping plus $20. 00 ($30. 00 minimum). Products that require packaging of 30” x 40” or larger (full sheets of matboard, foamboard, plastic etc. ) cannot be shipped via the USPS and therefore cannot be shipped outside the 48 contiguous states.


INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: We usually ship via the United States Postal Service (USPS). We will only ship packages that the USPS will insure. You may obtain a list of these countries from the USPS. (see http://pe.usps.com/text/Imm/Immctry.html). Due to size restrictions by the USPS not all products we carry can be shipped. For quotes on international shipping you may fill your shopping cart and proceed to checkout but be sure to indicate in the Comments Section that you would like a quote first. We will contact you via email with an estimated quote within two to three days. Yes, we need to know exactly what you wish to order to give a quote.


PRICING: All prices, including shipping/packaging and handling/insurance charges, etc. are subject to change without notice. Prices that prevail are those in effect at the time of shipment or when picked up. Should your order be affected by a price increase, you will be contacted by email prior to shipping your order or scheduling a pick up date. You may either cancel your order or give us your approval on any price increases.
