Our Response to COVID-19
In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, your safety and health are a top priority for us. Our shipping partner, Givington's, is continuing to operate and will continue to be excellent in their heightened health precautions. Here are some steps being taken:
- Hand sanitizer and surface wipes are throughout each station for frequent cleaning.
- The staff has divided out all sections of the warehouse to disinfect at the end of each day.
- There is a secondary team ready to go and step in if need be.
As the situation continues to change, we are committed to providing our customers with the most updated information. Below we have provided some tips in accordance with the CDC guidelines on how to properly disinfect packages received in the mail.
In times like these, we believe it’s important to stay connected to one another, and to God. Take care of those around you. We’ll get through this together.
Will there be delays in shipments due to COVID-19?
UPS and USPS domestic shipments may experience a possible 3-4 day delay. FedEx domestic shipments may experience a possible 1-2 day delay.
FedEx international shipments may experience 3-4 day delays
Why is shipping more expensive?
FedEx has implemented a new surcharge on all packages. There is an additional $0.10 per lb charge with a minimum charge of $1.00 per shipment.
How can I disinfect my package?
We suggest using an alcohol-based wipe or spray containing at least 70% alcohol. Wiping the outside of the plastic seal ensuring that you dry the surface thoroughly afterward. This is in accordance with the CDC recommendations and the EPAS registered disinfectants.

What translation do you use?
Most Alabaster Bibles use the New Living Translation. We wanted a modern English translation, without sacrificing the true meaning of this ancient text. We believe in the divine inspiration, trustworthiness and authority of the Bible. And so we weave visual imagery within the full text of each book of the Bible.
We recently launched our Book of Psalms in the English Standard Version Translation.
We are working hard to expand our books into other translations. If you have translations you would like to see, feel free to email us.
We print our books in Canada through a printer called Hemlock. Metro Vancouver-based Hemlock Printers is Canada's Most Environmental Printing Company, specializing in offset, digital, and wide format printing. It is Canada's most environmental printers, FSC certified.
