Scott,
Can you address the shipping on the targets?

Can they be sent Media Mail?

Hello Frank,
Probably best taken up with Jeff. He has a relationship with the printers. I wonder if smaller sized targets could go into a flat rate box?

You could get a 5 -1/2 inch stack of the small 200 yd targets into a large flat rate box.  You could probably get close to an inch worth in the small flat rate bubble envelope.  Our local PO does not have those, but you can get them free online.  Anyone who ships USPS should get a bunch of those.  They can handle much more that the cardboard small flat rate box.

Just my opinion...but I feel your printer takes advantage of the shipping charges somehow...

This is just my personal opinion, I think our targets are about the best quality sold for the dollars.

It's their business and they are working on very slim margins.  I totally understand trying to save on shipping by using USPS envelopes or boxes.  My experience with our prior printer was that the cost of using Flat Rate Medium boxes was very close to UPS.  Trying to get more than 200 small targets in a USPS envelope may be possible but then the printer either has to have a USPS pickup that is charged to the printer, or, they have to send an employee to the Post Office which is not cost effective.  I wish it were different, but that's just the way it is...

I always figure my costs for having things to my house is way cheaper than driving to pick the product up.  Unless it is local.
