I am willing to ship
anywhere in the world. Due to the recent huge increase in
US Postal International rates, I've had to more than double shipping
charges. Most of this is due to the fact that I use a cardboard
stiffener to prevent bending during shipping. A stiff package must be
hand sorted, rather than machine sorted. This puts the item in a nearly
higher shipping rate category. If you would like me to remove the
stiffener and add a more flexible protector, I can discount
international shipping, but you
will have to state that for my protection. I will do my best, but this
will cause your package to be not
as safe going through the mail system. You will have to waive the extra
protection via contact buyer form.
