Shipping costs are determined by many factors, particularly package size/weight and mode of delivery. Canadian orders are subject to 5% GST. Washington State orders are subject to variable sales tax according to region; the sales tax is calculated on the items ordered only and is separate from shipping costs.
When you place an order online with us you have the option to choose “surface” (cheaper, but slower) or “air” (more expensive, but faster) as a shipping method.
