Going Postal, Episode 2
I got lots of emails in response to my desperate vent of shipping annoyances.
A few people suggested I mail my posters in square or triangle-shaped tubes instead of the round kind, but unfortunately that would only eliminate one of the twelve insane dollars Canada Post charges to ship posters within Canada. I also got a lot of comments from other Canadians who have their own shipping operations... all of whom essentially reiterated that a) yes, Canada Post is expensive, and b) no, there is no way around it.
So, what's the solution? As a few of you guessed, there is only one sane course of action... my friend Jeff over at Topatoco will now be mailing my posters. Believe it or not, I will actually be saving money by hiring an American to ship everything for me. That's pretty sad, but it's the kind of sad that makes less work for me, so I'm certainly not going to complain!
So, long story short... posters (finally) go on sale on Monday! Are you excited? I am excited.
