International Mail Price Increase

For 2013 the United States Postal Service has increased prices for International Mail Service. Familytree makes use of their services because they offer the lowest cost compared to carriers like UPS, FedEx and DHL and the lower cost is something we pass on to our customers. Unfortunately USPS has increased the price of some of the services we use by almost double, and our International shipping rates will also have to increase to reflect that added cost.  

I am far from thrilled about this news, however the fact remains that the USPS prices are still lower than previously mentioned carriers. Familytree has had many International customers all over the world, which at times has blown my mind. It has been amazing to see where our posters and tshirts have ended up. With that being said I understand that buying products from across the world isn't something you have to do, but I really appreciate your business, and hope to keep it. Hopefully the fact that we create unique illustrations and products that you can't get anywhere else in the world will help make the sting of those few extra dollars a little less painful. The good news is that there are some really cool new releases in the works over the next few months that I am really excited about. Hopefully you will be too!
