Shipping ACEO's 7 Years, 7 Months ago  
For any of you who paint AECO's......what is the best way to ship out of the country? I want to be able to ship internationally from US, but shipping costs seem prohibitive.

Shipping ACEOs internationally is quite simple. I get a little bit of card and ensure that the envelope cannot bend (or you can buy special envelopes). Then you just send it as a letter. That's what I've been doing for a while without any problems. I know US postal service is different but you should still be able to send as a letter.

Thanks, Cathy. I have always been afraid to send anything internationally by First Class mail....never sure if it will arrive or not. Sending postcards or ACEO's priority/flat rate is just cost prohibitive.

There is of course always a risk but with small items like this, the actual value of materials is minimal. Of course if it gets lost, then you've lost all your time. I have never actually lost anything so for me it is worth the risk. I send my greetings cards this way too. As long as I can make it look like a document, then I send it as such.

I've shipped a lot of ACEOs internationally. I put them in a rigid plastic sleeve, and also place cardboard behind and I use small bubble wrap-lined envelopes (or sometimes a flat cardboard mailer, but usually the bubble wrap envelope). I ship the USPS First Class - and so far, no problems! (now that I say that, you KNOW something will happen to the next one...... ;-P
