We’re delighted to announce that on Saturday 1st December, we will be launching our US-based web store. This new website - www.bitmapbooks.com - will sit alongside our main website - www.bitmapbook.co.uk - but will be dedicated purely to North American customers. Where possible, this new site will carry all of our available titles.
The good news is that the site will be in dollars as opposed to pound sterling, so there will be no more annoying currency conversions. The exact same packaging standards will be applied on the new store and, as expected, all books will come with plastic corner protectors so when they arrive with you, they're in pristine condition.
Shipping costs will certainly be much cheaper as we're using the USPS Media Mail service. While this isn’t super fast (it takes about 4 to 5 days), it’s tracked and very reliable.
If you’re thinking of placing an order with us and you happen to reside in the US, we suggest holding off until the new US store opens - if you can endure the wait, of course! In the meantime, we will continue to offer DHL tracked shipping to the US from our UK store.
Shipping from the US to Canada and South America doesn't actually represent a saving so we will have to keep this UK-based.
Thanks for your past, present and future custom, and please do give us a shout if you have any questions.
