Buttons and Links and.....the dreaded SHIPPING!!

Well I guess we are officially live!!!!  Yeah!!!  We have working buttons and shipping costs (oh boy!!) and links and stuff.............yee haa!!!  Well anyhow...........I now have a fully functional website.  I am still concerned about the shipping costs.  In the US it's pretty clear but I really want to be accessible to at least other English speaking countries.....this is where it gets dicey.  Shipping costs sky rocket once the package leaves the US.  Even Canada gets hit.  To anyone out there who ACTUALLY made it to my blog!!  and ACTUALLY reads this!....apart from you Jerry!!, any advice or any of your experiences would help.  USPS, UPS, FEDEX?? which is best for international?  $18 to Canada, $32 to the rest of the world OK?....and $7.95 US?  SHIPPING!!!!!! Yuchhhhh!!!  Wish I could just give them away.  I love my charts!

  1. from shipping internationally you have to take a look at a few different things... do you want to be able to track where it is at? with international via usps you cannot... how quickly do you want it to arrive? .... usps unless your spending 20 to 30 bucks it is hit or miss to canada by a couple days but can take weeks to get elsewhere... i use usps for cost savings but the tracking doesn't help internationally .... love the site and the work keep it up you two!!

  2. HI MOM! soooo i'm here with susan, just showed her your site...she hates it...JUST KIDDING!! She loves it :) ...here's what she thinks....

    Hi
    I really like your artwork, and I think that what you are doing is really complementary to the astrology field. Its something different and I can imagine that many people would be happy to put your site as a link on theirs to add another element to what their clientelle is interested in. Its a very Libran and aesthetic contribution. I gave Jen some thoughts about getting your site out there as a link. I think that adding degrees to the bottom section that says sign/house, might be beneficial, because the audience interested will also probably be interested in the exact degree. If not for their own interpretation, so that they can use the chart in the future, or show to other astrologers for future readings. Jen mentioned that its a chart that is poster-sized, which I think is really cool!
    Okay, Jen can tell you the rest.

    ....i'll skype you later LOVE YOU!

  3. Thank you for your feed back Susan. The charts will come with a basic computerized report and chart which has the degrees of the houses. In order to put the degrees on the chart I would have to change the text at the bottom to basic typed text without any of the graphics styles because there wouldn't be enough room. This would change the general appearance. The posters are really decorative.
    What I could do in the futur after I have finished the whole botanicals series is make a template which includes this information in plain text (no graphics styles). This style would work well with photographs and I have some ideas brewing. Anyhow this is my long winded Virgo Moon explanation!
    thanks
