I have been investigating ways one could possible ship the chemicals. I looked at USPS, FedEx, UPS, and Grayhound Bus. All of them will not ship items considered corrosive which is what C-41 bleach and developer is considered. These new restrictions are a result of 911.

Some kind of distinction should be made for mildly corrosive chemistry.
If you have a friend or belong to a club that uses C-41, you could batch up your orders and split the shipping cost between you.
