There is no one post price for any location, except for satchels in Australia,

Paypal cannot calculate postage in checkout due to the many variants.

If you choose to use Paypal without the post added, it is OK as I will

simply calculate post and send on to you a Paypal invoice for post.

If you wish to pay by any other method. You most certainly can.

So long as it is not an overseas Bank transfer. Just email me with your option.

We do not use random size cardboard boxes if we can avoid it as Australia post

measures them and charges rediculously high prices for the post on the same.

We use Australia post boxes where possible.


Post destinations - I post to anywhere in the World.

IN AUSTRALIA only - A satchel up to 500 grams to anywhere in Australia is AU $8.50.

A satchel up to 1 Kilogram to anywhere is Australia is AU $10

                   A satchel up to 3 Kilograms to anywhere in Australia is AU $13.00

All parcel over 3 Kilograms are calculated at the post calculator at

Australia post using standard post boxes

We only charge the post office rates plus a $3 P/P fee for parcel over

5 Kg in Australia as we need to purchase post boxes.

Post within Queensland can take three to five days. All other states up to 5 or 6 days.

Now that Australia post uses private contractors post to Perth will take at least 10 days.


OVERSEAS All postage is calculated at Australia Post website 

 including a $3 P/P fee to pay our costs on Oveseas parcels. We do not profit from post.

All overseas regular air mail can take 7 to 12 days or more depending on your Customs procedures.

Sea mail can take 12 weeks. This is why it is much cheaper.


If you do not know the correct amount for postage,

please ask me for a quote due to the many post rate variations from Australia.
