manifesto letterpress calendar

just ran into this beautiful letterpressed calendar last night while on the hunt for valentines (for a little round-up i'm doing) and i've been dreaming ever since. the 2008 foundry calendar from manifesto letterpress is full of ornate old world patterns on recycled chipboard. and psssst - it's on sale for $10!

this calendar is great, and i was all the way through the ordering process until it tacked on the shipping price. $7.00....

I think shipping of $7 is a bit steep for a stack of paper, especially for an item that is only $10 (yes i know the original price was twice that, but still)

So, it is a really nice piece, i love letterpress, and it would look good on my wife's desk. But, higher then they should be shipping prices always hit a bit of a nerve with me.

Re: shipping

Devon from Manifesto here! I'd like to thank the folks at poppytalk for featuring our calendars. I also really dig the paper frames by ormolu.

I just wanted to announce that we've added USPS as a mailing option on our site. We were trying to keep things simple by sticking with one shipping method, but it's true that UPS rates seem a bit high for such light packages. We don't charge a handling fee or any markups on shipping, but after UPS raised it's rates again at the beginning of the year, the fees really are that high.

So I hope that the postal service can provide lower shipping costs for our tiny parcels!
