    No prob!! USPS is typically best rates iv found. Iv shipped stuff to the UK and very reasonable. If they don't ship to Canada then ask for the shipping box size and weight, I'll get a shipping quote for you from my address.

    Hi-
    yes we ship to Canada, although keep in mind "shipping" is only one factor in the cost to deliver products In Canada, the other factor is "handling" ie; the Duty (excise Tax/VAT/ the bite, whatever) which can often match or exceed the actual cost to "ship" however one chooses to ship.
    As a manufacturer, we are required by US Law to file Accurate Duty Papers (usually a copy of the invoice along with several pages of other dribble). Thus, our shipping charge also includes handling (the Duty charge). This is one reason that many purchasers prefer to buy our products from stores in Canada as the landed cost is sometimes considerably less than buying "direct" from the USA. Stores are able to consolidate these charges at lower rates as an importer and by using low cost specialized brokerage houses.
    Speaking of brokerage fees, we have seen brokerage fees (oops, yet another factor!) all over the map and thus they are not predictable. This is a sad situation as Canada should be one of our best trade partners, but the system seems pretty cruel to be able to trade reasonably with one another.
    The majority of our business in canada as a result of this situation is done thru several distributors who supply stores in Canada.
