I'm hoping for £5 postage within the UK and £45 postage to the US for this drop :)

Xenmate - are you confident your site will withstand the incoming F5-a-thon?

No.


Will confirm shipping prices soon, weighing a couple of options on how to play this.

Had a package arrive today from overseas full value marked at $150, customs didn't stop it! I feel like I've had a victory against the man.
I am also much better at planting garlic than onions.

ONE MILLION POUNDS! :twisted:

I wouldn't worry too much, UK prices are prohibitive for a lot of the US collectors who are not used to paying $100+ for a print and most of the people who signed up for the mailing list are US based. I don't think it will be a bloodbath.

I was only half joking. If anyone here misses out I will do my best to help, you're all a big part of why I'm doing this.

Any of you guys heard of Thomas Walker? I saw this True Detective print today and was pretty blown away. The use of the trees branches as scars is a cool idea. No plans for an AP drop though, I asked.

Don't forget Americans don't like buying stuff from abroad, especially when the translate the £ to $ and have to pay more than $10 postage. And before I sound too Xenophobic, I'd like to point out 2 things... 1. It's true. 2. I'm half American, so I get a free pass :twisted:
By the way, how much will postage be Xen?
UK will be £7.50, Royal Mail signed for.

But yeah, our American friends are not going to be happy. :hanging:
