Shipping Info

When you establish your Diamond account, it will be assigned to either our Olive Branch, MS or Plattsburgh, NY Distribution Center, which will be responsible for picking, packing, and shipping your product each week. (More or less frequent shipping options are also available.)

The majority of shipments are delivered via UPS in the continental U.S., or Canpar in Canada. Air and sea freight delivery is available for customers in other areas. (See International Customers.)

Freight charges are normally billed a week in arrears.

Day-Early Delivery

In the comic industry, some stores receive their weekly shipments on the Uniform Wednesday Release Date (or, as your customers will call it, “New Comics Day”). However, for a $4 weekly fee, Diamond offers U.S. and Canadian retailers the option of receiving shipments on Tuesdays, which gives them more time to prepare shipments for their customers.
