Commonly Asked Questions

Q:

For the deal for two 8.5"x11" books, is the second book a copy of the first or is it a whole separate book?

Leanne H.  asked on  Nov 21, 2012

A:

Hi Leanne,
You can either buy two copies of the same book or two unique books. They do not have to be the same book.
Hope this helps!

Q:

small print about shipping says Courier Brokerage fees are covered by the shipper. Other duties and taxes or customs fees as charged by Canadian government, upon delivery. Is there an estimate or percentage to help calculate this charge? 12% HST X $19.99 purchase cost ( or cost after extras added) + ? for duties and customs fees. I've heard horror stories where shoes were ordered online and these fees were equal to the cost of goods ordered.

Sandra R.  asked on  Nov 22, 2012

A:

Hi Sandra,
Our Classic Custom books are printed and shipped from Ontario, so there are no customs or duties fees on that photo book style :) We do not charge GST or HST, only a 3% international order surcharge on the pre-discount (pre-Groupon) product subtotal. For example, if you ordered an 8x8 Classic Custom book with 20 pages which regularly costs $34.99, the international surcharge would be $1.05, and this would be charged whether or not you applied a Groupon to your order.
Hope this helps!

More Questions and Answers

Q:

Hi, On the shipping chart, under the cost for shipping it says the charge for an additional copy to be shipped. Does this have to be a copy of the same book shipped or can it be the same size book? Thanks.

Karen C.  asked on  Nov 24, 2012

A:

Hi Karen,
It just needs to be the same size book and ordered at the same time. If you had one 8.5x11 book and one 8x8 book, you would be charged the base price for shipping the 8.5x11 book and the "Additional copy" charge for the 8x8 book. If you had two 8.5x11 books, you would be charged the base pricing for shipping the 8.5x11 book and the additional copy charge for the second 8.5x11 book.
Hope this helps!

Q:

If we do buy the option for 2 books, do we have to order them both at the same time? (Can I order one in December and another in February?) Thanks!

Martina R.  asked on  Nov 23, 2012

A:

Hi Martina,
As long as your orders are placed before the voucher expires on March 19, 2013, you can order the books together or separately at any time.
Hope this helps!

Q:

If I wanted four copies of the same 8.5 x 11 book, what would the price be?

Paul F.  asked on  Nov 23, 2012

A:

Hi Paul,
I'm afraid it's not possible to answer that question without knowing how many pages your book would have, whether you're upgrading to lay-flat paper, etc. If you had four 8.5x11 Classic Custom books each with twenty standard pages, the first two books could be covered by the $29 voucher in this offer, and the other two would be $39.99 each. You can view all photo book pricing information here.
Hope this helps!

Q:

For the $29 deal which is worth two 8.5X11 books containing 20 pages each, can I apply this to just one 8.5x11 book with 40 pages instead?

Karen K.  asked on  Nov 23, 2012

A:

Hi Karen,
Yes, definitely. You do not have to apply the voucher to two books if you'd rather get one longer book :)
Hope this helps!

Q:

Is a 20 page book 20 pieces of paper printed 2 sides or 10 pieces of paper printed 2 sides? Is the additional cost for lay flat per piece of paper or per numbered page?

Mark065  asked on  Nov 22, 2012

A:

Hi Mark,
Photo book pages are numbered the same as in a traditional book, so page 2 is the backside of page 1, page 3 lies opposite page 2, etc. A 20 page photo book contains 10 sheets of paper printed on both sides.
The additional cost for lay-flat paper is charged in the same way as the cost for extra pages, so each numbered page is counted towards the cost.
Hope this helps!

Q:

How much would a 12x12 book with 160 pages of standard paper cost, and how much would a 12x12 hardcover book with 90 pages cost with the present deal being offered. The 90 page book would not be standard paper nor lay flat. al

dawn r.  asked on  Nov 22, 2012

A:

Hi Dawn,
12x12 books start at $59.99 for 20 pages. Each additional page with standard paper costs an additional $1.49, with an additional $0.49 on top of that for layflat paper. You can view all photo book and extra page pricing here.

Q:

Can I buy two 8.5"x11" books and make four different books? They are all gifts.

Jenn B.  asked on  Nov 22, 2012

A:

Hi Jenn,
I'm afraid not. There's a hard limit of one Groupon per person, as noted in the fine print, so the second Groupon you purchase must be given as a gift and redeemed under a unique Picaboo account.
Hope this helps!
