Why is the cost of paper so high?
Our website is tied directly to the USPS system so they control the shipping costs, not us. Paper is heavy in nature which makes it not the most cost effective item to ship, but well worth it if you ask us!
If you are looking at ordering paper kits you can expect $7-$9 in shipping. We have no control over shipping costs. It can be frustrating, but sadly we cannot change it, and the prices that show at checkout are the right prices based on your zip code. With the Kiwi Club Kits each month we give subsidized shipping and cover the difference as part of the Kiwi Club membership benefits.
We have noticed the sweet spot of weight for paper products is ordering between 5-9 packs as that weight of paper tends to stay the same price if you are looking for a little price break in the shipping cost of your paper.
Any mail being sent to the New England area (Connecticut, Pennsylvania, New York, Vermont, etc) is always the most expensive as it's the furthest zone/area we ship to. For example the weight of 3 paper kits with the box is over 2 pounds which is the $17 benchmark shipping to that area.
Hopefully that gives you a little more insight into what to expect with the shipping cost when you order paper. Occasionally we will do free shipping on these items, so you can also keep an eye on those to take advantage of those offers.
