Shipping and Handling
Materials are normally shipped via UPS ground service. Shipping and handling charges of $17 for the first cassette or DVD and $2 for each additional cassette or DVD are added to each title purchased or rented together. Bulk orders are figured by weight. Inquire for shipping charges outside the USA. A $10 fee will be added to all “Rush” orders. We cannot ship to P.O. boxes.

Our DVDs are, for the most part, DVD-R copies. Our DVDs are not region-encoded. They should play without problem on most recent DVD players or computers with built-in DVD players anywhere in the world. However, DVD-R compatibility is not universal nor guaranteed with all DVD players. Please be certain that your DVD player(s) will play DVD-R disks without problem before ordering from us in DVD-R format.

All of our titles are available for rental for $95 each. Rentals are only available within the U.S. The rental rate is for three consecutive days’ use; one-half this rate is charged for each additional consecutive day’s use. See above for shipping and handling charges. All rental orders must be placed directly to our office; they cannot be placed on this web site.

Customers are responsible for return shipping charges on all rentals. All items should be returned via UPS, Fedex, or another trackable carrier so that they can be tracked and are automatically insured. We cannot provide rentals outside the United States. Rental prices may be applied toward purchase prices within 90 days of the rental.

International shipments are by air and shipping charges are paid by the customer. We cannot provide preview or rental copies outside the U.S.
