I think the point I meant to make is how much would DHM charge to ship flat if they charge $16 to ship a small tube.

Please know our rates are established per our fulfillment firm, Paragon Press, DHM retains no part of shipping whatsoever.

Thanks very much for all the purchases today, truly appreciated, all Peanuts Marq Spusta 'On the Mound' editions are sold out except select quantities on Marq's 'Blue Sky' edition.

I'm not knocking DHM on the shipping price. I definitely see how it reads that way so that's my bad. For $16 Paragon could ship flat...but I'm sure there's something I'm overlooking in the process.

Yeah. Had a few issues with the last Spusta I had shipped from paragon. DHM please have them ship flat if possible.

I don't think they've said that it is; people are just preemptively bitching

Woodstocks Song of Love and Nibbles were also shipped in a tube. I would imagine this will be shipped in a tube as well.

Does it really matter how it's shipped? These things take about a week, tops, to flatten completely. If there is damage, it gets taken care of. And it takes a lot less time to pack a tube than to pack something flat IME. Multiply that by 1000s of pieces and it makes perfect sense that they ship rolled. Who cares.

What's wrong with shipping a 12x12 print in a tube? Am I missing something?

it does and it doesn't.

If it is that small I could be shipped flat to avoid unneeded curling. Not that its that sensitive of a piece that it can't be rolled.

But the last 12x12 spusta I snagged had some shipping damage due to the lack of tape on the kraft paper and had to be sent back twice.

Shipping 12 x 12 in a tube is drymounting lazy. The prints from the last drop they did are still not flat after being under books since then either. Multiple collectors have complained to mark and paragon press (who handles their shipping) and they dont care so tubed 12x12's for everyone.

Flat isn't really that hard and seems to be cheaper, but oh well!
