Customs/Import Duties and Local Delivery

On International orders, customs and import duties are applied once the shipment reaches its destination. These charges are the responsibility of the recipient of your order and will vary from country to country. Contact your local customs office for details. 

Stonefly Press and its shipping partners are not able to influence local delivery practices. The arrival times shown for International shipping indicate the amount of time it will take for your order to reach your recipient's local post office. The time it takes to get your order from the local post office to your recipient's address can vary widely from country to country. Delivery may be delayed by customs/import duties and local postal requirements. If we learn that we will be unable to ship to an international address, we will cancel the order and notify you via email.

Non-Book Products

Please check the manufacturer website for additional shipping detail or warranty information.



For non-book products shipped internationally, please note that any manufacturer warranty may not be valid; manufacturer service options may not be available; product manuals, instructions and safety warnings may not be in destination country languages; and the products (and accompanying materials) may not be designed in accordance with destination country standards, specifications, and labeling requirements. You are responsible for assuring that the product can be lawfully imported to the destination country. When ordering from Stonefly Press, the recipient is the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the destination country.
