When UPS Ground is selected, orders generally arrive at locations in the continental US within 10 business days after the order has been placed. (See note about posters below.)

USPS Media Mai
l
is offered for orders up to $200 in 48 states. Please note that USPS Media Mail orders generally arrive within 14 business days (in 48 states), and often much sooner, but the postal service does not guarantee any timeframes. Orders to Alaska, Hawaii or US territories are likely to take 3 weeks or more. If you need guaranteed timeframes, please select UPS Ground.
For delivery to schools and libraries, we recommend UPS Ground.

Additional delivery information:
  • Large Orders: Please note that very large orders can take up to a week to process prior to shipping. If you are placing a large order of 50 products or more that needs to be processed quickly, please contact us.
  • Backorders: If an item in your order needs to be backordered and will take longer to arrive, you will be notified via email when the first shipment is sent. To read more about backorders, please see the "Backorders & out of stock items" items section on our Help/FAQ page.
  • Posters: Orders containing posters may be sent via US Mail given the high cost of UPS to some areas and the incremental costs of shipping posters. This will be determined at time of shipment; Language Lizard reserves the right to send such orders via US Mail rather than increase shipping costs to the customer.
A tracking number will be posted to your account within 1-2 business days after your order has shipped. You can access the status of your order and the tracking number by clicking on My Account at the top right hand side of our site. If you do not see a tracking number, please send us a note via the Contact Us form on our website.

Please note that a $25 fee will be applied if a shipment is refused.

US Shipping & Processing Fees
 

Shipping and handling for online orders is automatically calculated prior to submitting your payment information. Simply add items to your cart and proceed to the Checkout page where you will be presented with the shipping method and price.

Shipping & Processing Fees for the 48 states only are as follows:



*We do not recommend USPS Media Mail option if you require guaranteed timely delivery. Please see "Shipping Method and Delivery Timeframes" section above.


**Shipping and handling costs for online orders over $200 will be calculated when placing order. For mail/fax orders to US 48 states, please apply 10% for orders of $200-1000. Please apply 5% for orders over $1000.


The above fees cover shipping and warehouse processing and packaging fees.

For orders to Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico, media mail rates of $14.95 are offered for orders up to $100. UPS Ground rates will be calculated online but are significantly higher. Please note that orders to Alaska and Hawaii may be be sent via US Priority Mail given the high cost of UPS to some areas. Language Lizard reserves the right to send Alaska/Hawaii orders via US Mail rather than increase shipping costs to the customer.
