Today the USPS initiated an increase in their postal rates for International First Class Shipping. As a result I’ve had to increase my charge for shipping packages Internationally quite a bit. My new International First Class shipping rates for most items are as follows
- US $2.25 first item $.25 each additional item
- Canada $3.60 first item $.35 each additional item
- All Other Countries $4.25 first item $1.00 each additional item
- Cords will ship free when purchased with another item
I hate to have to make the increase and such large ones at that because a lot of my customers are European, Australian, and Canadian, but the increases were steep. So a head’s up to all my friends who are also selling their crafts and jewelry online and ship internationally, check your shipping prices against the USPS Postage Calculator, it’s a great way to make sure you’re covering all your costs so you don’t get bit in the behind at the Post Office.
And for your viewing pleasure, check out a brand new product I hope to have for sale very soon, glass eyes made specifically for use in polymer clay. The top is a quality glass cabochon and the adhesive used is liquid polymer clay, the backs will be epoxied so they will be waterproofed and durable as well.
