Because the costs of our raw materials, which make up about 1/3 of our retail price, are subject to change, we reserve the right to change our prices at any time and contact you to confirm permission to increase prices on orders not yet shipped. We will first make ever effort to reduce shipping costs to keep your total price the same.
USPS Priority Mail and USPS Priority International Mail is typically the most economical way for us to ship our blocks with tracking because our smaller sets fit well in USPS flat rate shipping boxes. In some instances, we may change to another shipping provider to reduce costs, keep our prices reasonable, or improve tracking.

Purchase Orders for Carolina Pratt Unit Blocks
How to Order Standard Unit Blocks for Schools and Institutional Buyers.
Although it’s safe and easy to pay online with Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express, or PayPal, we’re happy to accept Purchase Orders at any time for sets of Standard Unit Wooden Blocks from Schools, Museums, Government Agencies, and other Institutional Buyers.
First, pick your blocks using the “Add to Cart” buttons just like a regular online order.
- Complete Your Order Online — If at all possible, save us all a lot of time by ordering what you want online and providing payment at the time your place your order. Orders placed online and paid for online are our preferred method for handling orders, and don't require any additional paperwork on our end. Please only go through the steps below if your organization is unable to make online purchases.
- Checkout — Click the “Checkout” link on the yellow top menu bar and then click the “Checkout” button on the Shopping Cart page. Or simply click the red “Checkout” button below your Shopping Cart and above the Live Help link in the left column of most pages. (You must add blocks to your cart before you can Checkout.)
- Shipping and Billing Information — Fill in your “Shipping and Billing Information” and click the “Continue” button if you have not already done this.
- Payment — Select your “Shipping & handling” options, which include Free Shipping and other options. Then select “Purchase Order” as your payment method UNLESS YOU ARE ABLE TO PAY BY CARD and click the “Pay Now” button.
- Invoice — The next step will Thank You and show your Pro Forma Invoice. Please print this for your Accounts Payable person or, if you are the AP person, for your own records. You may also click “Bookmark Your Order ” for faster access later.
- Fax It — Your Pro Form Invoice should then be mailed or faxed back to us at our toll-free fax number, 888-516-0210, with the letterhead or purchase order customarily used by your organization. We will begin work on your order when your online purchase is confirmed via Purchase Order received via mail or fax. If you believe that you need additional forms, please contact us.
Remember, when you create a Pro Forma Invoice, you are not ordering any blocks, and no blocks will be shipped, until we receive a Purchase Order confirmation (or, better still, payment).
If you have questions, please call 828-419-0850 or 888-799-0797 Toll-free.
