In case you guys haven't heard, our postage rates for people in the US who want to ship internationally, even to Canada will be going WAY WAY WAY WAY up starting January 27th. This makes me very sad, as it will greatly increase shipping costs for people who live outside of the US (and I love all my international customers; some of you have become my great friends!). For example (and I'm still trying to work out the rates), packages that are from 1 ounce to 20 ounces will increase from around $3 and up to around $6 and up. That means an item that is only 1 ounce will cost $6 or more to ship!!! That means that shipping will probably cost a similar amount of money to some of my items! Booooo....I'm sorry guys! A silver lining perhaps: from what I've been reading it seems that this change will make our international postage rates more equal to what other people around the world have to charge for their postage rates, and it will also greatly help our postal service, which has been struggling lately. (I dunno, I'm just trying to see the good in the bad). Here is a helpful chart on the prices according to USPS; be sure to check my shop for my shipping rates (I charge a base price for shipping and handling, + additional charges for each additional item... oy vey). You can also check the prices at this USPS international shipping calculator starting January 27th.
