Christianbook.com delivers to penitentiaries, but we suggest you contact the prison first to determine if there are any special regulations. Some prisons don't allow delivery of hardcover books. Others place a limit on the number of items contained in a package. We cannot send any packages anonymously to inmates and all packages must be sent via US Mail. We cannot ship UPS to prisons.

The majority of our framed art can be shipped to any address in the continental U.S. (not Alaska or Hawaii) via any shipping & handling method we offer. Due to size restrictions, a few framed art pieces as well as other large products cannot be shipped via standard delivery. These same pieces cannot be shipped to Canada or anywhere outside the continental U.S. If you have any questions regarding shipping & handling of framed art, please feel free to contact us.

Postage & handling is based on the total cost of your order, not the weight of the package. When you complete your order at Christianbook.com, our online ordering system will automatically calculate the postal & handling charges based on the total cost of the particular order.
