Freight & Shipping

Calculating freight and additional charges

For any single order shipped to one location within the continental United States by standard ground delivery, Gemini offers one-rate freight that includes all freight charges, handling fees, C.O.D. charges and convenience fees. The freight pricing tables correspond to payment and freight methods. Unless you are subject to a local tax, the tables show the total amount that will be added to your invoice to deliver Gemini products to your door. Sales tax may apply in the following U.S. states: CA, MN, IA, NV, TX and VA.

Gemini standard shipping is via UPS. There is an $8.00 minimum charge per order to ship via another specified carrier. Also, because pickup must be scheduled the day prior to shipment, an additional day will be added to estimated delivery dates for orders shipping via other specified common carriers. If you opt not to use Gemini’s Guaranteed Ground Freight, there will be a $6.00 handling fee per order. If you would like to use your own UPS account number to pay for freight charges, the number will be stored in our system and used for all future UPS shipments. (Orders shipped this way are still subject to the $6.00 handling fee.)

Orders that have multiple shipment points, or that originate from more than one Gemini location, will be charged an amount not to exceed the one-rate freight charge for an order of equivalent size.

Lower your freight costs: fill out a credit application

Gemini has a long history of working with sign professionals and awards and recognition retailers to provide high quality products at the lowest possible price. This includes working with our customers to eliminate unnecessary fees from credit card and freight companies. The vast majority of Gemini’s customers are small businesses that have an established credit line with Gemini. We prefer offering credit to our customers rather than building costs into the price of our products to cover these hidden charges. Visit the Sign Pro section of our website to download a credit application today. If you would like to pay your account balance by credit card, Gemini will assess a convenience fee (see table below).
