Why don't you offer Media Mail?

We are aware some companies choose to offer 'Media Mail' as a shipping option for things such as vinyl records and CD's. We have chosen not to simply because more often than not this method leads to packages taking 10+ business days to be delivered. When paired with the fact this is time spent in the elements, these items often become warped and/or damaged in transit with no insurance option available to the customer.

This service as defined by USPS is a low-tier, bottom priority service. We believe this is why in the past we've seen some packages delivered in heavily damaged conditions, which have included bent jacket corners, cracked jewel cases, pressure cracks on vinyl records as well as media completely broken in half. Ultimately these aren't desirable results for us as collectors, therefore we don't feel comfortable offering this to other collectors.

How much is shipping?
All shipping rates will vary depending on a few different factors, some of which include:
  • Domestic vs International shipments
  • Total weight of package
  • Selected shipping method
We ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE for ANY fees required by customs for any reason. All shipping fees we require will be clearly shown to you alongside the service and estimated transit time upon checkout.

As most of our merchandise are exclusive and/or limited quantity, some items on our store do have a restricted maximum purchase quantity. For example, all of our vinyl is strictly limited to 5 copies per variant, per customer.

Our store is set up to block any orders that contain more than the quantity limit in a product description, however if you exceed this limit, your order will be automatically cancelled and refunded in full.

We do this to ensure that everyone has a fair chance to enjoy these products, so please be mindful of this!
