LP mailers and are priced at $1 each.

There are three types of shipping offered:

It can be faster than domestic mail in the USA.
This only takes 2-4 days (when there is no pandemic), is tracked and insured. Refer here for costs:

3. Economy – Surface Air Lift (SAL). This takes about 3 weeks for delivery.
