About Us

Create an Account

New and returning users to the site will need to create an account. Account users can view previous orders placed in the new system, send messages to our customer service team, track shipments, add shipping addresses, and request tax exempt status. Order information from our previous system will not carry over. If you choose to order as a guest, your ordering and tracking information will not be available to you on the website.

Our website is best viewed on Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer 11 on desktop and Chrome, Firefox and Safari for mobile.

Ordering Information

Users may order via credit card at anytime on our store. If you are a tax-exempt organization, please create your account first and then visit My Account under your name in the top right corner of the screen. Click Request Tax Exemption, fill out the form and attach a valid Ohio tax exempt certificate. Contact our customer service team at 1-800-678-6114 before ordering, so we may place you in the correct tax-exempt customer group.

TroubleshootingOhio county offices: If you are having issues ordering, please check if you are able to place an order on another device or browser. Also, some counties report that they must be logged in to the VPN using Cisco in order to complete their order properly. Please contact us if you have further issues. We are happy to help you!

Digital products are available for download after checkout on the order summary page, in your account under Orders, and through the order confirmation email.
