You guys are experts on shipping discs from US to EU and Mexico. What carrier is preferred and how do you calculate costs?

thank you, Td

Looks like I found the simple answer... USPS!

Tom,
When Steve released the Reverb Junkies dvd,
Some were saying the shipping to Europe or other countries was too high.
So he made it available as a Digital Download.

I'm back to the square one here. I was using first class rates on the kickstarter. I'm not at all comfortable with using first class, would have lost a lot of money on that one.

Priority rates are at least double. Doesn't seem like it's worth it to international buyers. Maybe when bundling with discs? $35 to $39 for most countries.

Package and ship it as I ship CDs internationally, as shown in my Bandcamp site on this page for the Space Force album.

See the section on the page under the subheading "Space Force Limited Edition CD in plain case. International orders only."

The special knowledge you need to do this is the obscure fact that USPS considers CDs and DVDs documents. Therefore you can ship them one at a time by first class mail declaring nonmachinable contents on the outside of a half-letter size envelope thinner than 1/4" weighing 3 oz or less for just a few dollars. To Mexico and Canada it's less than $2.

While you're at it, please listen to this Very Original album. All lead instruments are guitar, even those that sound just like organ...
