Lemmie double check that - I did note the baseball hats were insane on the postage.

Double checked, I had the order fulfilled in the US. Hence the daft shipping. I cant get all the colours I had before but much, much cheaper

If there are other items you might want or designs let me know. Ill see what I can sort. There is a one off cost of around €5,80 per item to setup. I am covering that at the mo so if we dont sell any more than 1 its probably not worth doing. Remember that when you want a salmon coloured pair of socks ..

Was going to order a cap but the shipping still seems too steep. Nearly £25 to deliver a £20 cap. Will order when sorted. Cheers.

Saw it go thru.

Cost me £3.38 :)

HOWEVER , when someone else buys one it will be a slight profit I think.

Ill keep the money in the paypal and pay it to a charity once its a significant amount.

I must reiterated despite my time taken in doing this I will not be taking any money from it other than my outlay for the initial products such as the digitisation costs that we inherit on the first sale of every product

Andy given any profit goes to charity I think most of us would be happy to pay a little more. (It was just the shipping that seemed nuts).
Perhaps you should raise the price a little so you aren't out of pocket?

If I raised the price I think we run the risk of not selling anything. Its literally the first time anything is ordered it costs around £5 as a setup cost. We dont make that much per item so it will take 2 to break even.

When we sell 3 Ill take out my costings and then its clear profit.

That ok?
