Shipping transit times are not included in our turnaround times. Contact a rep for a more accurate time-line. http://pointdistribution.com/wholesale/turnaroundtime
USA Shipping: Domestic Shipping- UPS ground is the main and usually the most economical service that we offer for shipments under 150lbs. You can calculate shipping costs in the shopping cart by adding similar blank items(to your custom) from the 'Stock Products' and continuing to the checkout process. No payment is required to get the quote. For shipments larger than 150lbs, trucking/LTL may be a better cost effective option. You can request a quote from a rep for trucking. We can also ship billing to your UPS or FedEx acct#. FedEx shipments may delay your turnaround time by a day.
International Shipping: Point Distribution has shipped skateboard products to virtually all modern countries and we ship international nearly every day. If you don't have your own logistics provider, or are just checking shipping rates, please contact us for a shipping quote. For smaller shipments less than 150lbs, UPS is usually the preferred method. USPS(Post) is an option for smaller shipments usually single package sample shipments. You can actually get a quote instantly by adding items to the shopping cart(add the similar ‘stock’ items if you want to check shipping costs before ordering custom). For shipments over 200lbs (usually more than 70 decks), we can quote an air ship freight service. Transit time is usually 7 days or less. We don't' offer ocean freight services, but if you have your own shipping agent, we regularly prepare shipments for ocean freight to the ports. Terms usually follow incoterms 'Ex Works'.

If you have not registered it's only a few lines to type. A single printed sample deck will cost you under $50. The higher the quantities ordered, like 25+, make the cost per deck/graphic decrease significantly. There are some variables that may make the deck/print cost go up. You can order less than 25 custom printed decks but the print cost is higher. This is covered at pointdistribution.com/wholesale and if you submit/email your graphics and other details we can add to your online acct so you can get an exact cost.
