:drool: You bet.

Actually, the point of my post was that I have an updated shipping guide. The original shipping guide I posted is quite outdated. ;)

Don't know about 'outdated'. It's a pretty badass guide. I used it myself for the first time last week, and it's definitely aces.
So it goes...

Appreciate it. I wish I could edit my original post to make corrections. Ah well.

Forgive me for trying to link people to an updated shipping guide. By all means, gentlemen, please continue with your discussion.

No I didn't

I used it as my platform to warn people against this EBer. It's a little more important dude. Sorry for breaking the sanctity of the thread.

He claims I want a refund because the value of the print has gone down since I bought it. Sigh. (not sure this is the right thread).
It's not.

Duh.

Wasn't gonna click on it, but saw it kept getting bumped. Decent Mondo drama.

P.S. The packing method in Crustar's sig is serious overkill. Stout would never waste that much time packing a print.

My method is more for folks who are sending a non-replaceable print to others. Of course, I admit that my new guide needs quite a bit of work. Hopefully the concepts will prove useful to some while I hammer out the kinks.

I can't speak for Stout or anyone else, but artists who have dozens of copies of prints that can be replaced have quicker and riskier methods of packing. It's just not worth the time to pack it to the nines when they can send a replacement later on if the print is damaged.

Are you purchasing your postage online or at the P.O.?

Basket full o' tubes gets costly at the counter. Lots of $$ saved printing those labels at home.

How so? Don't they charge the same rate online as they would in person at the post office?

No, but I may have to start if I continue ebaying out the collection as much as I've been. It wasn't that bad.
