Like everything, the cost of shipping just goes up & up & up....and as of January 17th, 2016 they have gone up again! We are again going to have to adjust our table upwards, but please keep in mind that this is JUST an estimate. We will adjust your fee, almost always downward, according to the actual cost. Just as an example, we tried to mail (US Mail, not priority) a box weighing just under 3 pounds. Believe it or not, you can no longer mail ANYTHING that weighs more than 1 pound in regular mail. It must go Priority. So the least expensive way to ship the box we had was "Parcel Select" for $12.00 ($8.00 more than the $4.00 our table quotes ~ the item is an akward size, but not terribly expensive).
We try to balance the most cost-efficient methods with the need to make sure your order actually gets to you!
We have begun relying much more on USPS Priority Mail in lieu of UPS. UPS minimum cost for a 1 pound box to most places is around $12.00. We generally use this now only for relatively high dollar orders, orders that are difficult to duplicate or finished pieces. Instead, we are using Priority Mail for most orders over $25 ~ $30. Priority Mail packages do have tracking numbers, but they are not as reliable as UPS, as most of the time packages are simply left with your mail.
Please also realize that, while we try to recycle as many boxes as possible, but those pesky suppliers never seem to send us the right size for re-shipping! So your fee is called a shipping & handling fee, & that covers the cost of the evelopes/boxes/etc & much as we would all love to work for free, our bill collectors won't go for it, so that fee also pays for all of us who process your order.
Our shipping & handling table is based on order cost, as there's no way we can enter weights for each item! Please know that we regularly adjust the fee downwards depending on the method of shipping. Also, please understand that this includes more than just postage ~ there are costs involved in getting your package off to you: from envelopes & boxes, to ink & paper, to paying the people who order, pick, invoice & pack your goodies. We would love to be able to do it all for free, and as soon as all our suppliers give us everything free, we'll pass that right on along!
Hopefully, this info helps to understand how we come up with our pricing for shipping & handling fees.
