(*Effective August 29, 2021)

Media Mail - delivery specified by USPS in 2 to 8 business days. Shipping based on total weight of your order. The weight of each item is listed on each item's description. 

Orders usually ship within 2 business days. Shipping times cannot be guaranteed. They are only estimates based on the USPS delivery times.

*These prices are subject to change based on USPS Media Mail rates.


If you wish your order to be shipped Priority, and it will fit into the USPS "Flat Rate" box, as long as it doesn't weigh more than 70 lbs., you may select that method at checkout. If you are unsure which box you would need, you may contact us and we can assemble your order and check for you and let you know which size box it will require. If you are in a real rush to receive your order and don't wish to wait for us to respond with box size, you may want to go ahead and choose the "Large" box just to speed up your shipping process. If the order will not fit into the "Large box", it will have to be shipped Priority based on your location or in more than one Flat Rate box. *These prices are subject to change based on USPS Flat Rate fees.

The USPS website lists their flat rate box sizes and rates.


Lightweight items such as postcards, photos, brochures, ads, etc., will be shipped USPS First Class, as long as the total weight does not exceed 13 ounces. This rate is subject to change based on USPS First Class postage rates. Be sure to select the "Postcard" shipping option at checkout.

Mothergooseberry Books did not increase this price when USPS increased their rates on January 27, 2019. We will absorb the increase and pass that savings on to you.
