INTERNATIONAL REMOTE AREA SURCHARGE: The rates above are for delivery to metropolitan areas and suburbs. The typical surcharge for remote or rural areas is $40 but we must confirm with your address.


International Air Mail up to 2 KG (4.4 lbs)

This is an affordable option for small parcels of 25 packaged cassettes or 40 cassettes without cases with a fast slow delivery worldwide. Shipping time should be 3 to 4 weeks by PostNL but the delivery times have been very long. The service to Germany has been very bad with a lot of lost packages.


There is no tracking number and no insurance. Shipment is at your risk of loss. We recommend you choose a tracked service instead.
Not recommended for Columbia due to lost packages and Brazil and Germany due to tax problems.

Cassette weights

C-30: 24 grams
C-60: 30 grams
C-90: 30 grams
C-120: 34 grams

Shipping box and packing material: approx 250 grams

Parcel cannot exceed 2 KG in actual weight or dimensional weight. To calculate dimensional weight the formula using centimeters is (L x W x H)/5000

All rates are in CANADIAN Dollars unless otherwise specified.

All shipments are covered for up to $100 against loss or damage except where noted. You can request to purchase additional coverage for $4 per $100 value. $500 value = $16 additional cost.

Shipments are considered delivered based on the courier delivery proof which may include delivery on your porch with no signature. For signature on delivery there is an additional fee of $6.00 per package (not available for international air mail). Instead of paying for signature, you can use the UPS My Choice® service to redirect your package to a safe UPS location with no additional cost from us.

Canada: taxes are applied based on the shipping address or pickup location.

USA: There are NO TAXES or other fees when shipping to the USA. Most orders ship from Toronto with a standard transit time of 2 days to NYC and 5-6 business days to California.

Australia: According to Australian Customs there is no GST or duty on shipments valued under AU$1000 including the shipping cost. Most Australian orders are processed by our related Australian company at

All other countries: You will be billed your local VAT taxes, duty and fees. You can contact your customs office and UPS in your country to enquire if there are additional fees.

Countries not listed will be similar or more expensive than the UPS Expedited rates posted above. Contact us for a quote.

Many people ask us for rates by the post. We don't recommend it because Canada Post international parcel rates are similar to UPS Expedited, but parcels are delivered in 6 to 16 weeks instead of 1 week (and of course customers start asking us where it is after 3 weeks). We've heard that some postal services are quite lax about collecting customs fees so there may be some advantage to postal delivery. Our quoted post office rates will generally be around 20% higher than the UPS Expedited rates.

It is recommended to put Made in Canada on your artwork.
