Frell!

Got my bags and backerboards in, and gulped in shock at the $100 shipping labels. Or at least, I *thought* it was $100, until I got my bill, nearly fell over, looked back at the boxes and realized there were *two* $60 registers on the big one. $160 shipping all total, for a $200 order.

There are definite down sides to living in Alaska.

I had been tolerant of the $100 shipping, since I've actually started quoting prices that don't lose me my shirt and not making ridiculous deals that I shouldn't. (Hatred of the day job, even mild, helps promote good self-interest) I'm still making money paying $160 shipping, but maaaan, it does shave some more cents off.

Rargh.

Still, the packaging I got looks very, very sweet, and I think it will promote a lot more pick-em-up-and-pay sales. Particularly on the bigger prints and on card packages.

And I have devious and clever wholesale marketing ploys that will dazzle retailers.

I hope. :)
