Ordering Info


Thank you for ordering from our website! We know you have many options when purchasing books, and we appreciate your support. Here are a few things to expect when you order directly from SUNY Press.

  • For environmental reasons, many of our softcover books are printed on demand. The time it takes for this process is usually 24-48 hours, but due to paper shortages we are currently experiencing longer printing times - up to one week. Faster delivery of our materials is available through many of our larger online retail partners, including Amazon.
  • If you live in the US, you will have your choice of two shipping options on our website: media mail or UPS ground. Media mail takes 7-10 days on average, and the charges are $6 for the first book and $1 for each additional book. UPS Ground will be a bit faster (3-7 days), but it also costs a bit more - $8 for the first book and $1 for each additional book.
  • Canadian and international customers should allow 6-8 weeks on average for orders placed through our site. These orders are shipped via postal mail, and the charges are $8 for the first book and $6 for each additional book (US currency). If you are interested in faster delivery, contact our warehouse for a price quote.
  • Your online invoice will give you options to check your order at any time.
  • If you would like help tracking your order, contact our customer service team by email at suny@presswarehouse.com or by phone at 1-877-204-6073. Note our warehouse personnel are available to assist you from 8 am - 5 pm, Monday through Friday (Eastern Standard time).
