Please note that there has been a slight increase in the overall shipping costs for our products due to higher transportation costs from our carriers. As we move forward, we will continue to make any adjustments we have available to help offset the shipping cost for our online shop customers. Thank you for your continued support and patronage!

Orders for full bags of plaster are charged a flat fee of $15.00 per bag. All other items are eligible for free shipping. A $5.00 handling fee per order will be accessed. (*standard shipping only)
 
  • Most orders (less than 200 lbs.) are typically shipped via UPS Ground. Please see the graphic below for an estimated shipping time frame to your location.
  • Small orders (individual color packs, Primer Sand, Up & EZ! binder, textural additives, and finished samples) may be shipped via U.S. Postal Service. USPS orders will arrive in 2 to 3 days depending on location.
  • Orders greater than 200 lbs. are typically shipped via freight. The company which ships the product changes from order to order as shipping ETA's and coverage can vary greatly depending on location, time frame and weight. The estimated shipping time frame graphic below is meant for small package deliveries, although, the transit times are generally similar for freight shipments.​​

Expedited Shipping

For orders that require faster shipping times, American Clay offers the following options for small packages:
  • UPS 3rd Day Select (guaranteed 3 day delivery time)
  • UPS 2nd Day Air* (guaranteed 2 day delivery time)
  • UPS Next Day Air* (guaranteed next day delivery time)
*Note: Both UPS 2nd Day Air and UPS Next Day Air may have options to be either "a.m." or "end of day" delivery, depending on location.

Costs for expedited shipping are not known until products are packaged and ready to ship from our facility. The customer is responsible for paying the difference between the standard shipping rate and the expedited shipping rate. Expedited shipping on full bags of plaster is not available.

Rush processing may also be available for orders that are needed faster than the processing times stated above. Small packages (less than 250 lbs.) may be assessed a rush processing fee of $50.00. Larger orders shipped via freight will be assessed a rush processing fee of $200.00.
