To those of you who have purchased prints from the US via USPS, how long do they normally take to arrive?

The reason I ask is because I placed an order on 22nd April for a pre-order that was not due to be shipped until May 7th. The quoted delivery 3-5 weeks for international orders and so approximately next Wednesday. Yet to open a dispute on Paypal, I've got 2-3 days before I pass the deadline.

Do you suggest I open a dispute via Paypal or what other options do I have if it doesn't arrive by next Wednesday?

Delivery time can vary tremendously , I've already got one package that was sent at the same time, same day as two others from the States (three in total) , but I'm not panicking yet as there are so many time variables involved.

In regards the fact that you've only got 3 days left before your paypal window closes what I would do is to make contact with the seller being polite and and amiable and explain the situation and that in opening a "dispute" you are only covering your back due to the impeding paypal cut-off point. There's no need to push it any further at this point as you then give yourself another 2(?) weeks for the package to be delivered and for everything to go the way it should.

What do you mean by placed an order for a pre-order? Is this a gallery, private seller/ebay or on here? I think a lot has to do with who this is. If a gallery, I wouldn't worry. If they are a seller on here, they probably won't be too offended if you open a dispute as it's kind of the general advice.

As Fatty says, things can take time.

Yes, I'm not too concerned and happy to wait 2 weeks. I just want to cover my back. I think I'll email the seller today with my intentions to open a dispute in 2 days which will cover my back for another 20 days, and hopefully he'll understand.

Anyone had one of these before?

Having something sent over from the states, but nothing is coming up on the UK service sites. The USPS says it has had an attempted delivery:

not entirely sure who to contact. weird.
