am sorry to say that I will have to increase my shipping costs. The USPS decided to raise prices in the middle of this month, but I honestly didn't realize how much it would be.

On the domestic side of things (USA) the increases weren't terrible. I was a little pissed that my priority small boxes I use for most orders have gone from $5.25 to $6.80. That is quite a jump, but it hasn't gone up in a few years, and it is still under 7 bucks, so fine.

International first class you ask? On average a 28% increase. Unreal. How can people do business with these crazy shipping charges? I shipped a 2 ounce package to Australia Friday...$12. I actually lost money on the order :{[]

I have tried to keep the international shipping low due to the crazy taxes you guys have, but I can't absorb more than I already have. I won't be increasing till Feb 1st to give people a chance to get a last order in prior. I know the prices below are a big jump from my flat $8, but I can't afford to keep them lower. Sorry guys.

New Shipping charges:
International - $11.50 flat
Domestic - $6.5 flat

You have been generous for awhile. Costs increasing everywhere.
Worldwide trend - increased postage charges and decreased service/reliability.

I've been looking at putting an order in for a while now, the Landhawk bikes look so damned cool, so it might be an idea to get my act together then...

Btw, what's the score with the out of stock stuff on the site? Some of its been out of stock since, well, as long as I remember really. Most of which I really want. Lol!

Which items in particular were you interested in?

The Dark Realm stuff tends to stay out of stock for a while as I have long lead times on getting restocks. Then when they come in, the more popular items tend to get scooped up pretty quick. Everything else (with the exception of a couple packs) I usually am able to restock within a week or so.

I adjusted Warmonger's as well. There's actually little reason for me to ship Priority Mail International now, the FCPI prices being what they are in comparison. Are you just eating the shipping costs for the heavier orders? $12 only covers 8oz international.

Yeah, I am eating them for now. The 6mm fantasy stuff is generally pretty light, so it isn't too bad, butt he scifi stuff...so expensive to ship. My international orders have been on a general downward trend for the past couple of years I would say, probably the taxes and what not.

As a Canadian customer, I totally understand (our dollar is a bigger problem than your shipping charges!). Getting hit with customs here is pretty hit and miss, and my MW orders are usually miss, so that's not a problem here, probably more with the UK and EU.
