can any UKers give me postage advice? What service do you use? How much is it?

Hi hun airmail is the only option really as surface mail can take months. The package's length+width+height must add up to less than 90cm (with no single dimension greater than 60cm) for airmail.

To give you an idea of price to the US/Canada, a package weighing 500g is 6 and a package weighing 1kg is 11. Place things on your kitchen scales to get an idea- 2 large bars of Dairy Milk alone weighs 400g!

I always try to use airmail as surface mail takes forever too.  The last package I sent international was to the Netherlands from the US and it was a bit over $40.00, but it was quite heavy. 

But you can sometimes also break up your package into two smaller packages and it will be cheaper to send them.lol

So in the US are we talking Post Office?  Or UPS/Fed Ex?

You can send however you like as long as you get a receipt showing that you sent and where you sent to as your proof. Smiley

tinyhouse,
I'd ship USPS, otherwise you'll be spending a small fortune! It's already high enough shipping through USPS.

I would love to do this one if shipping international was not so expensive!

should I send it out on July 30th, or is it ok to do it early to make sure it gets there on time? Does it matter if it gets there by July 30th? How long are people going to wait, for delivery?

can any UKers give me postage advice? What service do you use? How much is it?

I've sent a few packages to the US and airmail is the way to go, It will cost you anything up to 20 though, last time i sent I used Airsure which was a little bit more (I think it's a set price for any weight) but allows you to track the item. the box was about 70 x 50 x 50 cms and altogether it cost 22. it usually takes a week to get there.

also if you go to the post office and get all the forms you need beforehand it makes life alot easier, you will need a airmail/airsure sticker sheet, and a customs sticker, they should have them out on the counter or will give them to you if you ask (it saves having people tut at you in the queue!)
