HOW TO ORDER
STEP 1--All items offered at this website are described in detail & many are scanned. Please study any scans and all accompanying condition notes. The abbreviations used in describing items are explained & often illustrated at Abbreviations Explained. If you have any questions about what is offered, or about our terms of offer, please contact us before ordering. Our policies are described in detail at this site, and you may access these descriptions by using the hyperlinks at the top of the page from which you are ordering.
STEP 2--INQUIRY E-MAIL. The quickest way to inquire about the availability of any item(s) is to e-mail us:
To expedite your response, please:
=> If you do not receive our reply within 2 day's time, there may have been a block through no fault of our own, or our response may have been misclassified as spam by the software handling your e-mails. In either case, the best strategy is to e-mail us again, but this time give us multiple e-mail reply addresses, using 2 or more different internet service providers to which you have access. For example, if your att.net address did not get a reply the first time, mention a yahoo.com or hotmail.com or gmail.com address if you have one. We will then attempt to reply to them all. There us a definite difference in reliability among internet service providers; some are simply not as reliable as others, and we all have to cope with it.
STEP 3--OUR CONFIRMATION AND OFFER. We will confirm the availability of the item(s) as quickly as possible by e-mail. We will quote you a total price with a brief explanation of any charges, including shipment to the location you specified. We try to offer items to one customer at a time, so we ask that you reply to our confirmation & offer within 4 days; if you do not, we will have to assume you are no longer interested. Please allow for the possibility that we are at a weekend show or out-of-town, before becoming concerned about getting a response. Similarly, in the summer months or holidays, we may be gone for a week to 10 days for vacation. If the item(s) has/have already been sold, you will be notified as quickly as possible. Offers cannot be made by telephone; it is to our advantage and your advantage to have a written record of our understandings; this is easily accomplished by e-mail.
STEP 4--YOUR ORDER. We want you to be fully informed before you order. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. Items will not be reserved for you until you have had all of your questions answered. If our offer for the available items is satisfactory, you would then e-mail us your order, asking us to reserve the item(s). This action fixes the list of items & the price. If you prefer to decline an offer, we would still appreciate having your definite answer, so that we may offer those items to others.
STEP 4--YOUR PAYMENT. After e-mailing your order, you should mail us full payment as soon as possible. We expect payment within 10 days of the order, unless your offer states otherwise, and we will not reserve items beyond that time. We do not as yet accept credit cards, debit cards, or Moneybookers. Please make the payment to the order of Judnick Postcards. PayPal is accepted on most orders of US$5.00 or more for "verified" customers who have a "confirmed" address; simply contact us for instructions, if you wish to pay that way. [PayPal payments are not accepted on reoffered items, or on items where our offer insurance has been refused]. We will confirm the receipt of your payment by e-mail. If you pay by cash, traveler's check, bank check, cashier's check, or money order for the full amount, you can normally expect shipment within 3 business days from when that payment is received. If you send a personal check, please allow up to 15 days for your check to clear. Any check or money order should be drawn on a US bank & have a 9-digit routing number magnetically encoded at its bottom. Large orders can be paid by wire transfer; please inquire for details. Payments of any type should be in US dollars or Euros--whichever you prefer. If you decide to send cash, you should use registered mail. It is always prudent to include your ship-to address (i.e., the address to which you want the order shipped) with your payment & a copy of our e-mail correspondence; this thoughtfulness avoids errors and delays. We will use your address label, if you supply us with one.
STEP 5--OUR SHIPMENT. Unless you have instructed us to use special postal services--such as registration, certified mail, or certificates of mailing--we will use first class or air mail to send your order. Airmail is most often used for overseas shipments, although bulky lots are sometimes sent Global Priority Mail. For more information about international shipments, please click here: Shipments abroad. Shortly after we ship your lot, we will notify you by e-mail. We appreciate the courtesy of your e-mail when you have received the shipment, but it is not required.
STEP 6--ADDITIONAL OFFERS. If you see more items that you would like, after you have already accepted an offer, simply ask for another offer. The list of items in an accepted offer cannot change; but there can certainly be two or more offers!
