Look at this - USPS just raised rates for flat rate shipping of small boxes by $7!
Was $16.95, now $23.95.

And yet iteadstudio can send me a set of cards via registered US Airmail for $8.

Gonna have to see if small padded envelopes are any cheaper ...

WTF USPS!   
Not even an advance warning. 40% to 54% increase!

BTW, Thanks Crossroads for this headsup. I need to raise my shipping rates ASAP!

We should privatize the post office and normalize the salaries of the lazy employees.  We have MANY shipping options now, there's no need for a government postal service.  I'm sure Ron Paul would agree.

Their pension costs are out of control. That's what's killing them.

I am just so mad about this. I didn't expect increases will be this large for International shipping. 40 to 50+%%% WTF. This will affect my International sales. FUUUCCCKK!!!

Exactly!  Eventually, everyone will vote conservative, once they're no longer ignorant.

Just went to the PO today.  SLOW, FAT, LAZY... And probably make twice I do, with a pension when I get ZERO pension.  Yet, they work for ME?  Insanity!  You liberals out there can BITE ME! ;-)
