ZIP Files

Many Lutheran Music products are available by downloading ZIP files. ZIP files are convenient because they can be downloaded to your computer immediately over the internet after you place your credit card order. There are no shipping or handling costs associated with downloading ZIP files.

ZIP A ZIP file contains other files (a few, or possibly thousands) that are compressed to preserve space. ZIP files are a convenient way of downloading multiple files. ZIP is a very common format for an archive and is used widely on the internet.

Your computer can probably already open ZIP file archives. This capability is part of Windows XP, and there are many software programs available for unzipping. If you aren't sure whether your computer can unzip an archive, you should probably order the Mail Order product instead of ordering the ZIP file.
