VJ Books Shipping Policies

  • Each book and dust jacket is individually inspected and graded.
  • The dust jackets are placed in collector-quality clear acetate covers for protection.
  • All books are packed securely in bubble wrap and placed in a sturdy shipping box (except USPS Priority Envelope) and center taped.
  • We believe it is our responsibility to get your order to you and take responsibility for that insurance.

Domestic Shipping

Shipping Options:

  • USPS Media Mail
  • Free Domestic Shipping on Orders Over $149
  • USPS Priority Envelope
  • USPS Priority Mail 2-Day Medium Flat Rate Box
  • UPS Ground
  • USPS Express

The shipping cost is based on the weight of your products, and your address. You may view your shipping rate by following through the checkout process.

A small handling charge is added to each item in an order and included in the amount given. The handling charge covers inspection, bubble wrap, box, acetate jacket and insurance. Typically, a single book sent via USPS Media Mail averages $6, USPS Priority Envelope averages $8.

Media mail usually takes 10 business days (not counting Saturday or Sunday) for delivery. Contact us if you haven't received your shipment within 3 weeks of order confirmation (we have to give the post office enough time to really lose it!)

Items in stock will typically ship out in 24 to 72 hours.

Please note that Free Domestic Shipping only applies to in-stock items and excludes pre-orders.

International Shipping

Shipping Options:

  • USPS First-Class International Box
  • USPS International Priority Box
  • USPS Express

USPS First-Class International Box can hold up to 2 books and generally arrive within 2 - 4 weeks. USPS International Priority Box shipments can hold up to 4 books.

In all cases we "ping" the website for the best shipping method and that information is presented to you (with the small handling charge) before you check out.

USPS online tracking is available for packages sent via USPS International Priority Box. Packages sent via USPS First-Class International Box will only be tracked until the order reaches the destination country.

Items in stock will typically ship out in 24 to 72 hours.


Books are a pre-order when they have not been published yet or if we are waiting to receive them in stock. If one or more items in your order is a pre-order, we will wait to ship your entire order until all items are in stock. This saves customers on extra shipping costs. If you’d like your in-stock books to ship earlier, please contact us at We just ask that you cover the extra shipping charge.
