Since we began work in 2008, the cost of shipping our big, heavy books overseas has risen 300 percent. On the positive side, 99.9% of all shipments reach their destination within a week or two—we’re thankful for reliable delivery. But the cost is high. When possible, it makes sense overseas to look for books locally. Any good bookstore will be able to order all our titles. We are also represented by record shops around the globe, from Brazil to China. Currently, the Book Depository sells our entire catalog with small discounts and free shipping worldwide. You won’t get our patches, badges, or other bonuses, but you will get the same books.
Yes, we could solve the problem by making smaller, lightweight books…but we never will!
