It will depend on the size and weight of the tube. Try here for some estimates:

Your average Mondo yazoo tube with one poster comes in at around 950g, just under the 1kg threshold for higher charges

Where do you guys get your mats from? I really struggle to find a good range of colours here in the UK.

Also has anyone got a good source of acid free tissue paper? Can't seem to find anything big enough to cover a 24x36. This is the best I have found https://www.davpack.co.uk/protective-pa ... tissue.htm

I've found it tricky to get a decent range of mat colours too.

For tissue paper I just buy it off ebay.

eBay I use two sheets of this on a 24x36.

If you have a framer in your area, you might want to pop in and try your luck. Some are happy to order mount board in to bulk out their own orders

Hi guys,

So ever since I broke my arm I haven't been able to work or do a lot. I'm getting pretty bored! So I'm doing sketches/drawings for the cost of shipping and supplies. Let's say £15. You give me a movie related subject and I draw something. Most of it will probably be portrait type stuff, but I'll do whatever I feel like doing. This is just to keep myself occupied so no deadlines, but most will probably take a day depending on how much trouble my broken (non-drawing) arm is giving me. Size wil be a4.

Here are a few examples.

Pm me or make a list in this thread and II'll get to it asap!
cheers

Ball bearings may be a bit harsh. I used the teeny glass beads they use in reborn dolls. Bought some plastic bags that I filled then got mum to make cloth bags with colourfast cotton for them to go in.

eBay This kinda stuff..
