Save on USPS Shipping with NoveltyQuiltFabric
You would think that 1 yard of cotton fabric would always weigh the same. Unfortunately that is not always the case. Typically 1 yard of cotton fabric weighs 8oz. but sometimes it can weigh 7oz, 6oz, 9oz etc. This same variance occurs for flannel, fleece and even charm squares, jelly rolls and layer cakes.
If you are purchasing multiple yards, please do not rely on eBay’s shipping calculator to estimate your actual combined shipping charges. It truly doesn’t work well for fabrics.
Tricks of the Trade:
We have found over the years that if you truly want to SAVE on shipping costs, every piece of fabric needs to be weighed. This makes an extra step for the buyer (requesting an invoice before paying) but sometimes it is well worth taking this extra step. Requesting an invoice is truly important once you start purchasing multiple yards. As an example, 2 yards of fabric typically weighs 13oz and can be shipped First Class with USPS. If 2 yards goes over 13oz, then the next economical way to ship is using Priority and is placed in a Flat Rate Envelope.
By requesting an invoice before paying, this allows us to cut, package, weigh and charge you the exact shipping costs. We also pass on our discounts to you that we receive from USPS for purchasing the shipping label online vs. paying for it at the post office. We truly go to a lot of effort to help you save on shipping costs!
USPS Flat Rate Boxes – Fabric can really get heavy especially when you’re talking 10 yards. USPS offers a very economical way of shipping heavy fabrics with their flat rate boxes. Typically we can get 6-7 yards of cotton fabric in their Flat Rate Envelope shipping for $4.80, up to 15 yards in a Medium Flat Rate for $10.20, and so on. Once you go over 10lbs, shipping with UPS starts to become the way to ship products.
US Customers receive FREE shipping for combined orders over $75.00!
We’re happy to help you SAVE on shipping costs but YOU have to help us out by requesting an invoice. If you don’t request an invoice, please know we have done everything in our power to inform you and only ask for a 5 star rating for shipping costs when you’re leaving feedback!
