if you are moving something important to a foreign country use REGISTERED MAIL!!!
slow but secure.

if you need something faster to a foreign country use EXPRESS MAIL!!!
the time will still be up to 10 days to deliver no matter what the website says...customs ALWAYS gets involved

most people THINK because the Postal Service says PRIORTY SERVICE it get there faster:lol::lol:

first-class mail is ALWAYS the FASTEST delivery behind EXPRESS MAIL:o

no...

remember there was no flat rate priority to mexico until this last rate change

the old priority was called GLOBAL PRIORITY

that worked well and was ALOT cheaper than EXPRESS MAIL

remember when mail leaves the custody of the US Postal Service ANYTHING can happen:biggrin:

the trick to moving mail to another country is to get a FAST service so there isn't time for someone to "take a second look" at the item

the postal service in the USA is NOT there to "make money":light:

hard as this is to believe...
they are only there to provide a "cheap" way for companies to get their information and product to the general public

the days of "letters to grandma" are completely GONE:o
"christmas cards" almost GONE:O

mail flies on "fedex" planes...
that's what keeps "THEM" in business
the postal service "pays" for the jet fuel

everyday "fedex" "UPS" and other companies drop pallets of THEIR parcels at local post offices for the post office to deliver FOR THEM...
the post office charges them ~$1 each AMAZING!!!

several years ago when chrysler had money troubles the USPS bought ALL chrysler cars
ALOT of money!!!

Ford had problems...same thing
now GM

special favors went to DELL when they had trouble delivering their "chineese" computers...
Fedex delivered them to the local PO for customer to "come-on-in" and get them...GEE lets make the lines LONGER for us the public to accomadate DELL

i'm on a RANT:lol:

it is...but NO PO Box deliveries are accepted by Fedex or UPS:P ...

there ARE boxes that come on these drop-shipments that go to PO Boxes...

the UPS and Fedex boxes delivered by the post office are from everywhere too...not just from the "BIG DOG" companies

isn't the post office interesting????:lol:

people should really see the computer machines that sort letters at 12 letters a second...then put them in order for the next-day delivery...AMAZING!!!

oh yea no one can visit anymore...PO personall are on "HIGH" alert:lol:

I've updated the original post with a 3rd location these stickers are now available - Las Tres Virgenes Restaurant in La Paz.

Again, the three locations are:

1. The Baja Nomad Tienda: http://tienda.bajanomad.com ($.92 each, 7.95 shipping [ a flat rate for anything, and as much as, you order throught the Tienda ]).

2. The Baja Cactus Motel in El Rosario ($2 each).

3. Las Tres Virgenes Restaurant in La Paz ($2 each).
