SHIPPING: Please note that shipping costs are expensive. I can't help the cost of shipping, but I want everyone, including myself, to be happy with our experience. I do not make any money off of shipping charges! I ship all the items first class through the USPS with card board backing and a signature required receipt. The cost is the same whether it is a small or large envelope. Actual cost for this service is $5.00 and that is what I charge for one or up to three items. By using the signature receipt there can be no wondering whether the item ever arrived and for a small cost puts everyone's mind at ease if there is ever a question. Thanks for
