We are always looking for ways to make our products (and our customers) feel extra special so we recently upgraded the paper we use for our Flyer and 4-Page Pamphlet products to 80# Cover Stock at no additional cost to you. The heavier weight gives these products a more premium look and feel.
And speaking of premium feel, we’ve also upgraded our packaging for all FedEx orders for increased protection during shipping and delivery.
Let us know what you think of our new paper and packaging options in the comments section below.
Starting today, we are removing the 300-page restriction on MagCloud shipments outside the United States, United Kingdom and Canada. Now, you can ship publications of any size, in any quantity, to any country! Not only that, but we’ve expanded the shipping options available for worldwide destinations, adding faster and more reliable service through FedEx.
You can opt for FedEx International Priority service and have your order in 5 business days from the date of purchase. If you can wait a little longer, you could save some money with FedEx International Economy service and have your order in hand in 7 business days. With both of these FedEx options, we’ll send you a tracking number as soon as the order ships so you can keep an eye on it as it travels from our print facilities to your doorstep, no matter where that is in the world.
One thing to keep in mind with these new larger FedEx shipments is that they may be subject to import taxes, customs duties, and fees imposed by the destination country, which may cause delays beyond our original delivery estimates. Since customs policies vary widely from country to country, we have no control over these charges nor can we predict what they may be, so it will be the responsibility of the recipient to cover any additional charges that may come up. For information on potential taxes and fees specific to your country, we suggest contacting your local customs office, or viewing the applicable FedEx country profile.
If you are willing to wait for your shipment, for orders weighing less than a pound we also have a cheaper shipping option through USPS International First Class Mail. See the table below for a comparison of turnaround times and tracking availability for these new shipping methods.
Costs vary by country and order size. To see the new shipping options available for your country, and what they cost, check out our Price Calculator.
Last month, we announced that we were shrinking the label on the back cover to only 1.4” wide, and today we are excited to share that we have taken it a step further. Starting today, all MagCloud print publications will include only a small 6 mm square 2D barcode in the lower righthand corner of the back cover. This barcode allows us to process your order through our printing, binding, and shipping processes as efficiently as possible, while minimizing the impact on your back cover real estate.
For those of you who have been publishing with MagCloud for a while, take a walk down memory lane with this timeline of our ever-shrinking back page label. And as always, let us know what you think!
