Shipping and Insurance


I accept US Postal Service money orders, personal checks, and PayPal. Postal money orders and PayPal (except eChecks) clear immediately and will ship the next business day. PayPal eChecks clear when PayPal says they have - usually 5 to 7 business days. For personal checks, I delay shipment for 7 business days to allow them to clear.

For international buyers, PayPal is the only payment type accepted.

I do not accept Western Union or any other Non-US Postal money orders.

For US Shipment:

Unless otherwise requested, I ship plates via USPS priority mail. I choose priority mail because it is relatively fast and reliable. I prefer not to have lovely collectible plates rattling around in postal trucks for weeks because we chose a cheaper mail option. I mail on the same or next business day after recieving cleared payment. Delivery, via priority mail, will take anywhere from 2 to 5 days depending on your location. I ship from Rockville, Maryland. I charge the current USPS rate for priority at the time of purchase. This includes delivery confirmation and $50 insurance; I email the tracker number to you so that, if you are interested, you can check the status of your package on the website. For purchases of more than one plate, I will combine items to reduce your shipping cost. Price quotes for shipping will be provided before you confirm your purchase.

$50 insurance is included with Priority Mail. For shipments of $100 or over, insurance is required. For $50 to $100, you may purchase it at your discretion. I charge the current USPS rate at the time of the purchase.

For International Shipment:

Since these are fragile items, I prefer to use relatively fast shipping options with some sort of insurance or delivery confirmation. Since it's impossible to cover all of the variations, I will be happy to discuss the options and quote a price for you prior to your purchase.
