Cartographer’s Toolkit Direct Purchase

July 21st, 2012

A reader just asked me if I could direct-ship a copy of Cartographer’s Toolkit to him. The answer is yes! So add that to your options for purchasing the book. If you would like to get the book faster and a bit cheaper* you can simply email me. I’ll send you a PayPal invoice, and then drop-ship the book once the payment has gone through. It takes the printer approximately 2 days to get the book shipped out. In all, it generally takes about a week between ordering and receiving the book, if you are in the U.S.

If your address is within the continental U.S., the price of the book plus shipping will be invoiced as $40, via PayPal. If your address is outside the continental U.S., I will calculate shipping, and send an invoice accordingly ($36 + shipping). Email your request to gretchen *at* petersongis dot com. Be sure to include your mailing address in the email. I can drop-ship from the UK and AU as well, so if you are from either of those countries, the price will be close to US$40.

The printer for the book handles the order fulfillment and shipping, and I have not had any problems with them so far regarding speed of delivery. Getting your book directly from the printer will certainly speed things up.

I’ll try to get to all requests within 24 hours, if not sooner! Thanks for your emails, comments, and twitter comments, as always.

*as of today–the prices on Amazon and B&N change daily and they aren’t set by me
