Here's how to place your order:

Click on the link to the appropriate order form below (US, Canadian, or Offshore),

Check or mark the items you want, add up the total $$ amount, 


Mail it, with payment, to:

Guy Lautard

Be sure to include your name and mailing address on the order form.


Your e-mail address is also very much appreciated for quick, no-cost communication if needed.  Your phone number is a good idea also.  (We will not share such information with anyone without your explicit permission.)

Payment - can be by personal check, money order, bank draft, or bank money order.  (US customers can no longer purchase money orders from USPS.)

Please note: I am not set up to take credit cards, PayPal, etc.

All prices include postage (except for the Octopus casting).

Orders are sent by the Post Office..

Postage and appropriate taxes are included in our prices. Choose the price list that applies to your province or territory.

Note that the PST portion of the HST is not required to be charged on bound books in any province or territory. HST is
payable on plans, CD’s, DVD’s, the protractor, and Octopus casting.

Due to a change in B.C. tax regulations which came into effect April 1, 2013,  Provincial Sales Tax (PST) is no longer
charged on any of our products (including for
things like the 2-minute vernier protractor). B.C. residents should therefore
use the prices given for AB, SK, MB, etc. Changes
to all affected areas of  the website will be made as soon as possible.

Whatever the method you use, please make sure your instrument is negotiable without charge in Canada

Bank draft negotiable in Canada, payable to Guy Lautard.  It must be drawn on a Canadian bank if in Canadian funds, or on a US bank if in US funds,

Bank money order payable to Guy Lautard.

Money transfer services such as Western Union in Canadian funds. If you use such a method of payment, please make payable to Margaret Lautard (so she can collect it). Please also e-mail her the reference number she will require when she picks it up. 


NOTE: Some customers have told me they have found that sending Canadian or US CASH by registered mail, for amounts that would be typical when ordering things from us, is the most convenient and practical way to send payment.  This is frowned upon by the post office, and of course we cannot be responsible for lost cash. But if you send cash, and we get it, we will send you your goodies. (One guy sent me more than $400 cash, from Australia, in an unsealed envelope! I couldn't believe it. (I would've put 5 wraps of clear packing tape on it!) We later spoke on the phone, and when I expressed my surprise, he said, "Aw well - it's only money, Mate.")
