Prices and Shipping

Credit card payment is accepted from the following cards: Visa/Visa debit, MasterCard/debit MasterCard, and American Express. Purchase Order / cheque, and other payment methods are available also as detailed elsewhere but require signed confirmation of paperwork, so will be less quick than using a card to pay immediately at checkout.

Folder Prices

All pricing information is provided in CAD$ or USD$ depending your country.  Look up at the top right of the page to the selection box to correctly select your country.

Shipping and Handling

General Notes

Many tons of music folders are shipped world-wide every year, and excellent shipping rates are available to you. The shipping is calculated based on a correctly entered address. The shippers chosen give you the best value.

Payment by credit card allows in-stock orders that are typically packaged and in transit to you within 1 business day, assuming there is no custom imprinting, nor a bespoke build (e.g. for an iPad folder). 

Your courier shipments can be tracked over the Internet as your order is en route to you. A tracking number is automatically emailed to you with tracking data available from the evening of the day your shipment departs. Exception: Tiny items like a single ring adaptor may go as small packets within the mail system and don't generate tracking numbers.

We can't recommend surface shipping highly, we just put it there because people ask otherwise, and assume it's much less expensive when it often isn't. It's truly slow (5 to 9 weeks), and we can't even submit a tracing request on a delivery that is late, until 30 days have passed from the latest expected delivery date. Please choose carefully.

Outside of Canada/USA: Your country may add Value-Added Tax and/or duty to the folders. They may charge a brokerage fee to enter your goods into the country. You are responsible for these charges. We can't keep exact track of customs rules and rates world-wide (we've shipped to 40 countries) but we can help make sure you have the right questions to ask if you want to research ahead-of-time:

The Customs Tariff Classification for our folders, in the Harmonised System, is H.S. 4820.30. "Folders - paper or paperboard". Your customs office should be able to use that information to tell you what duty and/or Value-Added Tax may apply.

Distributors are needed in all countries to speed delivery and to keep shipping costs as low as possible with bulk shipping. Please give your local music store the information from this website, and ask them to contact Ian Bullen for distribution information. If you're a music store owner, you may apply.
