As some of you may know, the international rates via USPS shipping recently doubled again. I.e., sending one copy of “Gut Feelings” (which is less that 6 oz) now costs me over $12 to send to the UK. A bundle of Happiness 1-3 now costs well over $30, save the flat-rate priority shipping envelopes I’ve come to adore, they are then reduced to $24 (which is still more than what I charge for the books combined, and an unfavorable amount to charge for shipping).
I have adjusted my shipping prices in my storenvy to reflect this unfair hike, and understand that this may dissuade much of our international audience from purchasing directly from us in the future.
With that said, we would like to start distributing more to international shops & distros, as shipping in bulk overseas is more cost-effective than to individual readers. Happiness has in the past been available at London retailers GOSH! and Nobrow, as well as Glasgow-based retailer Good Press, and would more than ever, like to do a better job of distributing outside of North America.
If you know of or run an overseas distro that would likely sell a giant art & comics book (and other zines), please message me! I want very much for our international audience to be able to get their hands on our books at an affordable price, and I think at the moment, this might be the best solution.
