Light Packet Shipping

Some of you might have noticed we added a ‘light packet’ logo to many of our product pages. You might ask ‘what is light packet?’ It is a low cost shipping method we offer for Canada and The United States. The logo indicates that specific product is eligible for light packet shipping. The packets are shipped via Canada Post, in an oversize padded envelope. You may select any items from our catalog that contain a ‘light packet’ logo and continue to fill your envelope for the low cost of $5.95 in Canada and $7.95 for The United States. Just keep in mind this shipping method does not include a tracking number or insurance. If you require insurance or tracking you can always upgrade to our standard shipping at the checkout!
