    Check your shipping costs and adjust price accordingly. I suspect you're subsidizing part of the shipping, and as the number of orders increases, your "donation" is getting bigger. Try to break even.
    I highly second this sentiment. Your calculation seems to be missing the shipping to each forum member, which would cost you a lot with all orders combined.

    I will take 3, please.
    Thanks for doing this, I know logistics can tend to get out of hand sometimes, so I hope all goes well.

    Well I wasn't expecting there to be so many packages to ship out and I probably under-estimated the initial shipping fees.
    The problem is I don't know the packed size of the blankets or their weight. I'll try calling the supplier tomorrow.
    Currently my powers of inference have lead me to conclude that one blanket will probably fit into a small USPS flat rate box. Maybe as many as 3 will fit into a medium flat rate box.

    What this would mean for you all is that on orders of 2-3 blankets there would be an $11 flat rate shipping fee per order. For those ordering 1 it would be only $5. The price of each blanket can come down actually to $6.50 this should cover Paypal fees and variances in final shipping.

    The current total is at 59, as per the Spreadsheet. When we cross the 75 threshold I will make a last call and get the process underway.
    Now is the time to double check my work and change minds. Please do so by PM so not to clutter the thread.

    Thank you,
    -A.A

    EDIT: As per TFC Rick's post below I guess we'll go with just a flat $6 shipping per order period, across the board, to include delivery confirmation.

    Aaron, I just sent two of these in the mail. You could prolly fit 3 in a small box or the padded envelope I used. I think it was $6.00 or so with delivery conf.

    Hope this helps.
    Look up before you hook up!!

    I will take two also. Tried to put my name on the spreadsheet ala amsteel. But could not add my name. Maybe I am not supposed to do it myself.
