But yeah, our American friends are not going to be happy. :hanging:
What about for Europe?
£17 for Europe, £20 Res of the World, both tracked and signed for at delivery.

It costs us $30+ for posters from the US so its just the same as we pay but they are so used to everything being cheap

It's a great piece, so I have no doubt it will sell. However, the price is quite high for a 2/4 colour 18x24 screen print, which will likely put off a lot of people. Personally, I may well go for the reg, though only because our postage is only £7.50!

Those prices sound spot on from my experience of mailing to US/Europe. US folk will just have to suck it up, just like we have to 90% of the time when buying prints. £20 is around $30ish which is what it costs most times to ship from US to UK.

If anything, the postage prices are a bit low, once you take into account the cost of packaging. However, $65 and $105 for the prints may put some people off

I'm with Jasper on this one , whilst we are all used to paying what we do to import stuff from the 4 corners of the world the Yanks unfortunately are not.

And whilst it may garner a smug smile of satisfaction knowing the boot is on the other foot for once it won't help if because of that it puts enough of them off buying for it not to sell out.

On the other hand one would hope that the availability of prints at non-import prices may encourage more UK peeps to get involved. I know the price is not that much lower when you factor in the currency conversion but the hassle you save yourself is pretty damn big.

You'll have no arguments from me about any of your pricing structures and I really do wish you all the best , I'm just playing devils advocate in regards with the majority (hopefully minority?) of the Americans shying away from it because of the perceived high sounding costs.

Listen to you blokes! :P
$50 to get something shipped here.


I agree though, the Yanks get it good with shipping prices and of course delivery time. No matter how many prints I buy, the two week wait doesn't get any better.
