The USPS last month instituted a major price increase for international parcels. For an example of how drastic this increase was, a 4.5 ounce package (one stamp sheet in a padded envelope) that used to cost me $5.96 to ship to the UK now costs me $12.75. As a result the new shipping cost I must charge for stamp sheets to any country in Europe in any quantity is now $14. Shipping to Canada will be $8. I regret this change but cannot control the post office. This is the first time I have increased shipping costs in the three and a half years this site has been online.
