How do we place a purchase order?
We accept purchase orders from government agencies including public schools. All other orders are prepaid only. Public school terms are Net 30 Days.
We do not accept purchase orders from private schools or charter schools even if they ultimately receive their funding from a public school district or government agency.
A purchase order is a written contract with the signature of a school district official who is authorized to enter into a contract. Please mail or fax the signed purchase order contract to us at the address or fax number shown below. You may also scan the signed purchase order and email the document image to us at
That is usually much more legible than a grainy fax, and is much faster than the US Mail.
To make sure that your purchase order is correct and will not be delayed for revision, you may wish to get a written price quote 24/7 on this web site. The written quote will show correct pricing, shipping charge, everything you need for a purchase order. Go shopping on this site, putting items into your online cart in the usual way. You can browse items by category, or if you know the items you want, use the convenient “Fill-In Shopping List”. Then, instead of clicking on the "Checkout" button, click on the "Get Printable Quote" button right next to it. Print the quote, or save it to a PDF file, and attach it to your purchase order.
Otherwise, we invite you to use a personal or school credit card in our online web store.
Ordering online with a credit card is by far the fastest way for you to receive the materials you need.
How do we pay an invoice for a purchase order?
Invoices for purchase orders which have been shipped must be paid by check or ACH transfer on a US bank. Credit cards may not be used to pay purchase order invoices. A credit card may only be used at the time an order is placed.
