Shipping + Returns + Customer Care

All products are shipped free of charge within 72 business hours from Asheville, NC via USPS 2/3 day shipping (Ascend Press books are sent USPS media mail).

Unfortunately, due to the energetic and consumable nature of our products, all purchases are final.

We do understand, however, that everyone changes their mind now and then.  So if for any reason you need to amend or cancel an order, please contact us immediately and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.  Of course, once an order has shipped we are unable to alter or cancel it.

If there are any issues with your order on delivery, please notify us within 48 hours of receipt via e-mail at

Thanks to our good friends at the IRS, if you're within the state of North Carolina you'll notice that there is sales tax included in your order (I know, we're not happy about it either).  Fortunately (for some), if you're outside of NC, there's no sales tax required.
