    I need to get some D-19 and maybe some APHS ortho paper from freestlye...

    http://www.freestylephoto.biz/e_main.php

    they are cheap and have items harder to get from other locations but the postage is high

    anyone keen to get anything off them ?

    large format film, bulk chems, Holgas, etc...

    the more you get the cheaper the postage works out...

    cheers,
    Nick :wink:

    Nick, if you have to option, tell them to ship USPS; it is much cheaper than FedEx and UPS. I've sent packages from Hawaii to the South Island several times, and got them there in about a week (Global Priority - which is more than you need).

    thats the problem - they dont give the option - hence this thread

    I've emailed them about it but they seem stuck in their ways .. and have therefore lost my business because of it on two occasions - I may well (again) spend more on less for the actual items at another site and get cheaper postage ...

    it seems mad for them to hinder potential customers because they want to send more business to another company (fedex or whoever it is)

    either way they lose money ..

    okidoki - sounds good ...

    I'm not after my chems urgently so can wait and see if anyone else is interested, we'll see in a few days maybe.

    I've also emailed them again (I think I'm just pestering now) re. the postage - I'll see what they say, I'm still keen to share the postage in any case (;

    ok - by chance this offer is still open due to a delay in another order which would make my order from freestyle redundant ...

    but I will be biting the bullet soon as my special alien blood hazmat chems will (hopefully) finally be on thier way ...

    so, again .. any takers ??

    cheers !
