Were trying to simplify our shipping and now all orders will be shipped USPS Priority unless special arrangements are made.

For orders over $300, shipping is FREE! (Continental U.S. - UPS or USPS ground)

Laos Essential Artistry ships to the Continental U.S. Most orders shipped to Alaska and Hawaii should not incur a surcharge because we use Flat-rate Priority USPS boxes for shipping which covers all 50 states.

All orders are normally shipped within the next 1-2 business days

With USPS Priority our rates are:

0 - $99.99: $7.95

$100 - $299.99: $10.95

$300+ FREE! (UPS or USPS Ground - Continental U.S.)


We can also arrange for more expedited shipping, but you will have to call so we can determine the cost and then you can place a custom order over the phone.


Sales Tax: Only California Customers will be charged sales tax and the rate for California Customers is 7.75% (8.75% after April 1, 2009)


Payment Options: Visa, Mastercard & Discover. We will also accept phone orders using your credit card.


How soon will my order be shipped, and when will it arrive?

We will make every effort to see that all orders placed by 3 P.M. Pacific time are shipped out within 2 business days and most times your order will ship the following day. Orders placed on weekends will be processed on the first business day back and shipped out as soon as possible. The actual time an item is in transit can vary from 2 to 5 days, according to your location and seasonal shipping fluctuations.
