Ship Ship, Hooray

Our new $7.95 flat-rate shipping policy has arrived. With the help of The Met collection, here’s an illustrated guide

You asked for it. We delivered.

Our new shipping policy has arrived: $7.95 on every order, to all 50 states, with most packages arriving within five business days. (Shipping to Canada and overseas is also available for a little more—read all the details here.) If it hasn’t yet sunk in yet that your art-inspired gifts will get to you more quickly and easily than ever, let us let The Met collection help get you excited about this big change.

Shipping on every order is $7.95 to all 50 states—no minimum required. No more charts, tables, or minimums—just one flat rate.

Rural Mail. Todros Geller (American, 1889–1949); published by WPA. Color woodcut, 4 x 6 in., 1940. WPA New York Project, 1943 (43.47.96)


Every order within the 48 contiguous US states will arrive in three to five business days. Which means your catalogues, cards, jewelry, and other products will get to you sooner than ever. (Alaska, Hawaii, and other, farther places take a bit—but not too much—longer.)

The Dispatch-Bearer. Giovanni Boldini (Italian, 1842–1931). Oil on wood, 16 3/4 x 13 1/2 in., 1879. Bequest of Martha T. Fiske Collord, in memory of her first husband, Josiah M. Fiske, 1908 (08.136.12)


We’re offering flat-rate shipping to Canada and other countries, too. Shipping on every order to Canada costs $24.95, and every order to other countries costs $49.95. It’s that simple.

We also offer expedited and overnight shipping. If you really can’t wait to get your order, get in within three business days for $13.95 additional. Or get it tomorrow for $22.95 additional. (We can relate to the impatience.)
