$60 for postage from Freestyles for a pack of paper...yikes
Yep, we kind of get screwed no matter how you look at it. When I first got interested in traditional photography I was at my parent's, which is quite rural (towards Victor Harbor), so the best option was mail order. To make ordering from Freestyle viable, you have to order a few hundred dollars worth of stuff at any one time - $60-$100 is about the range with their shipping price. It's not so bad if you're ordering $400 of stuff, but it's still a painful amount to pay.
