    General shipping information

    IMPORTANT: all orders will receive an email confirming your package has been shipped. If you do not receive a shipping confirmation email 2-3 days (at most) after your order, it is possible we did not receive your order from Paypal. Paypal has been known to drop order emails and there is no way for us to know short of logging onto the Paypal site and checking every order, which is not feasible. This is a rare problem (1 out of 200 orders or so) -- most orders go smoothly.

    All 12" vinyl records ship in custom-made mailers with built-in bumper guards for maximum protection, making bent corners a near-impossibility. Any orders too large to fit in these mailers will be double-boxed at no additional cost. All orders are shipped to listed Paypal address (via copy/paste to prevent typos) -- if a different shipping address is preferred, please make a note in the Paypal comments during checkout.

    When does my order ship?

    Weird Forest Records is a tiny operation but we understand you want your records the second they're ordered. We'll do everything we can to get them to you quickly and in good condition. Generally, orders ship twice a week (Tues & Fri) or three times a week (Mon, Wed, Fri) if a new release just dropped. We feel this is a good balance between getting orders out fast while keeping time spent driving to the post office and waiting in line to a minimum. Barring illness, any prolonged breaks due to tours or vacations will be announced in advance on the main page.

    How much is shipping in the US?

    All US orders ship via USPS media mail for a flat $4 no matter how many items you order. USPS media mail generally takes 1-2 weeks to arrive but could be longer, espcially during holidays & Christmas season. Priority shipping is available upon request, get in contact.

    What does it cost to ship orders internationally?

    International shipping cost is calculated by weight and location, though some items like cassettes and CDs will be priced as postage-paid. The base rate for orders under 1 lb start at $6 Canada and $12 rest of the world (ROW). If you add more items to the order, we cover more of the shipping cost as they increase, up to 4 lbs. Large orders over 4 lbs are not recommended due to the required service upgrade to ship those orders -- if you want to put in such a large order, please get in contact as we can arrange a large order discount to help you with shipping cost.

    Why are you always sold out of the latest distro item I want?

    We carry items from other labels on our distro page but have no intention of becoming a full-fledged record store with lots of stock on hand at all times. So we try to order only as much as we think can sell in 3-6 months but will err on the side of caution. If you see an upcoming release you're interested in (even if it's not listed on our page), let us know and we can order an extra copy for you. If you are a new customer, we will ask you to pre-pay until reliability is established.

    Will Weird Forest distro my label's releases?

    Maybe. This depends on a lot of factors, such as release format, terms asked and familiarity with the artist, label, titles in question. Best way to proceed is to use the contact form to get in touch.

    Do you accept demos?

    Sorry, Weird Forest is not accepting demos at this time. We have in the past though and hope to in the future.
