Hard Copy format such as printed materials including hard cover books or printed articles and case studies which you expect to have physically shipped which requires a shipping fee and careful customer consideration to accurately anticipate processing time to print, pick, pack and ship as well as the actual shipping "time in transit"before it arrives at its destination.
