Mixed or Dry Clay Direct Mail
No need to waste
space on storage... just order it as you need it since it arrives in 3
days and is always fresh and soft.
We now offer mixed Helmer porcelain cone 10 for $ $29.45 for
inches (about 38 lbs) delivered anywhere in the 48 states, Alaska and Hawaii
($13.45 for fast insured shipping + $16.00 for the clay).
IMPORTANT NOTE! the postal service regularly increases the cost
of the flat rate box... when I started the box cost $8.40. Now it is 11.30. The actual cost of
your shipment will always reflect the current cost of shipping regardless of
what appears here on the web site since updating the pricing will often lag the
We can also ship 20 LBS of Helmer 10 mesh
dry for flashing slip for $20.00 ($13.45 shipping + $6.55 for the
clay). These offers are good until postal rates change. Pictured to the right is the clay cube which will ship 1 cubic foot of
Helmer. Your price is the actual cost of shipping plus the purchase price of
$0.18/LB for the clay (weight will vary). It
eliminates the need for the paper bag because it is lined with a plastic bag. It
can be reshipped via UPS without the need to do additional packing and so, saves
you time and money. Boxes are also less prone to shipping damage resulting is
less product loss and better profit and boxes only cost $0.25 more per 50 lbs of
clay than the Kraft multiwall paper bags.
Pictured is mixed clay
ready to ship. On the bottom near the back are full pallets of stretch wrapped
bagged Helmer. Full pallets are always the most economical way to buy clay but
we also sell clay in single bag quantities. If you come to Lewiston and bring
your own containers, you can save $20.00 per ton off the regular price of the
Helmer clay. If you can handle bulk bags, Helmer is now available in 10 mesh, 20 mesh
and fines screened 30 mesh ($350.00/ ton). Airfloat is limited in supply
and costs $450.00/ton.
Our pottery is packaged in a way that allows us to guarantee safe arrival or the
items are replaced free including shipping. Over the last 40 years the packing
has been refined to assure all your purchases arrive in perfect condition. Most
are sail carded to stabilize and protect them. In the event you need to return
an item, be sure to save the packing and repack it in the same manner and add
more styrofoam to the box if it is not drum tight.
Packing begins at the box
table where the panels are cut the exact size of the box. Tape tabs are then cut
to assure the piece cannot reach the side of the box.
The piece is wrapped in paper to prevent tape residue from sticking to the
glaze. The tabs are bent over the edge of the piece and taped to hold the item
centered in the box. Styrofoam is layered below, around and above each piece. The
cardboard sails prevent migration and also add great edge crush resistance.
