Q: About our Shipping Time: 4-6 weeks?? Are you Serious!?!?

Yes indeed, we are! Why? Because we don't want to have to charge you shipping in the USA, and we refuse to use lower quality paper or printing to save on our cost.
We firmly believe in a high quality paper and the best inks that will last for decades in your collection. Because it's such good paper, it weighs more than say, a "People" magazine would weigh. It costs a LOT to send them one at a time. So much, in fact, that we would lose money on each book and wind up out of business in no time!
Fortunately, the US Postal Service offers businesses the ability to send lots of parcels at one time for a MUCH reduced rate (about 1/3 of what it costs us to send them one at a time) This means we don't have to charge YOU for the shipping!
It does, however, mean that we have to wait for a batch to pile up in our orders so we can send enough magazines at once to get that discount for you. 3-4 weeks seems to be about the average time it takes to get that many books in a batch, then one week to process and mail them all.
I know it sounds like foreverrrrr to wait for your books, but if you're a subscriber, you will get them around the first of the month that they're due (Feb, April, June, August, Oct, Nov, Dec) in a shiny, clear archival envelope that you can use for storage! Pretty fantastic huh?
So please be patient, we insist on high quality and that's always worth the wait :)

We'll be closed this week May 16-19 for the Society of Decorative Painters National Conference in Daytona Beach, Florida. Please come join us at booth 207!  

Please do leave us an email at info@paintingworldmag.com and we'll get back to you when we return. 

ALL JUNE 2017 ISSUES SHOULD BE DELIVERED BY THE END OF MAY.
