    Yes, PapaSmurf, you are correct....bulk amounts might be an issue, but if Dutch tied the packages together or put a rubberband around them...something to keep them together as one...I think the post man would pick them up...I might be wrong..but worth trying. ZQ

    Keep it cheap. First class works just fine.

    I gave my post lady a couple of bottles of wine. she drives up my driveway many days & beeps the horn when I have small packages -even if they can fit in my mailbox. She knows I work from home

    Hey, Dutch. What ever works the best for YOU!!!! I know that what ever I order, will show up. I like the cheaper is better, but if it makes it easier for you and cost me a few dollars more, then so be it. The stuff you make, only you make. It's not like I can go down to Gander Mtn, Bass pro, or wally world and just pick it up. You have great products, and I will continue to use them, even for a little more on shipping.

    It sounds like some others (pgibson, papasmurf, and ZQ) have great ideas for you.

    I've made it so first class is the norm, but you have an option of Priority if you wish for a few dollars more.

    How much do you ship?
    I set up an Endicia account that runs $9.95 a month and can print as much postage as I need. You get to buy postage online as you need it, have the option for the various types of mail (Media, 1st Class, Parcel Post, etc.)
    With this sort of printed labels with the pre-paid postage you don't have to take items over 13 ounces to the counter, you can just stick them in the mailbox.
    Also, I get to put insurance on it if I want and Delivery Confirmation (DC is usually free)

    Planning ahead on the part of the buyer is always wise and should nearly eliminate the need for rushed shipping.

    I use a Dymo Turbo 450 http://www.labelwriter.com/ for my businesses it allows me to print address labels and postage from the same printer. Search places like Newegg and you can often find it for much less that what the manufacture sells it for.

    On Priority mail, I go direct to the Post Office online site to do my Priority Mail labels as the Post Office will discount Priority mail label costs if you do it on line and you can request the Post Office to pick up the package at no extra cost.

    If you need Priority mail boxes, set up an account with the Post Office, order the boxes on line and they will deliver them to your door for free.

    Most of my shipping is First Class, small packages under 12oz and Priority Mail. I rarley ship parcel post any more.
