If one thing is certain when it comes to international shipping - it's not a quick and cheap affair. We originally set our international shipping a bit higher for the minimum threshold. After doing some weighing, research and quoting using the USPS postage calculator, we devised a better shipping structure built around the InkJournal notebooks that will allow for lower shipping costs for our international pen friends.
For orders up to $35.00, we can offer USPS international first class for $8.95.
For orders of $35.01 to $45, we would be able to ship using USPS flat rate priority mail for $16.95.
For orders of $45.01 to $300, we would still ship by USPS priority, but in the larger flat rate box for $44.95.
For orders of $300 or more, we offer USPS priority for $64.95.
With the USPS first class service, orders can sometimes take up to 2 to 4 weeks to be received. In our experience, our clients are willing to wait for a great product, which the InkJournal certainly is. There is nothing we can do about expediting the shipping speed. In the rare event a package may be lost, we would be able to file a insurance claim with the post office, but would have to wait after 30 working days from the date of postage to file properly.
