Hi Ants et al.,
The boards arrived yesterday and look excellent!
Due to the size and weight of the boards I can't ship in a Priority Mail
envelope and we're getting dinged by the USPS for oversize (longer than
The cost in the US is: Priority Mail Standard Postage
1 board $11.25 $10.64
2 boards $11.25 $10.64
3 boards $15.10 $13.78
The cost to Canada (Ontario) is: Priority Mail First Class
1 board $28.47 $11.76
2 boards $28.47 $15.54
3 boards $30.66 $19.32
The postage to Canada is based on Matthew Turner's address so Doug's
might be different.
Note that the shipping materials are the same between shipping options
so the higher cost of Priority Mail gets a bit better service and
insurance up to $50 for the US shippers (I'd have to double check on the
PayPal to this email address and I'll get it right out to you.
If you're waiting for me to ship other boards to you then we can look
into shipping them all together, but due to this size difference it may
not save too much. But please let me know if you'd like to ship
