Allow three weeks for handling and delivery in the USA. Most US orders are shipped via Media Mail. Orders outside the USA are shipped to a mail consolidator and entered into your country’s postal system, so expect four weeks or more for delivery. Instrument plans, due to their large size and odd shape, tend to take the longest to arrive. If you are in a hurry to receive a plan (especially outside the USA), we suggest you request that your plans be folded and mailed in an envelope.
USA - $6.00 minimum, incremental increases based on the weight of your order.
Outside US - $10 miniumum, incremental increases based on the weight of your order.
Your shipping amount will show appear on your cart when you check out, or you can estimate shipping prior to checkout. Shipping charges are not applied to membership dues.
One of the benefits of membership in the GAL is that current members receive discounts on all GAL publications (with the exception of the Luthier's ABC book). You can take the member discount by joining at the same time that you place your order.
IF YOU ARE NOT A CURRENT MEMBER AND CHOSE THE MEMBER PRICE, WE WILL SEND A REQUEST FOR THE DIFFERENCE AND IT WILL DELAY YOUR ORDER. We encourage you to support our information sharing system and save money on your order by joining the Guild.
Payment Outside the USA
Our website provides the easiest and safest way to order and pay if you are outside the USA. We also accept payment in US Dollars via international money order payable through a bank located in the US.
When joining or renewing, make sure to select “Outside USA” on the membership button.
Washington State Sales Tax
Sales tax is applied to all orders from Washington State addresses, but does not apply to membership dues. Sales tax of 9.5% will automatically be added to your online order when you check out. If ordering by mail, please add the appropriate tax.
Mailing your Order
You can calculate your shipping and create your own order form by using the online shopping cart: Select the items you want (“add to cart”), fill in your zip code or country in the “estimate shipping and tax” box, print out the page showing your shopping cart, and mail it with your check or money order to the address below. (You can then delete items from cart so they won’t show up on a future order.)
If you prefer, you can mail your order with your check or money order (USA only). For credit card payment, you must use the shopping cart on this site.
