As a small newly started business we get asked a lot about international shipping. We love that people all over the world want to make T-Rex Inks part of their art supply collection. We have faced a few hurdles in getting into international markets that we are working on. Some of this will take some time. In the meantime, we have come up with some alternatives for how our International customers can efficiently get the inks while also saving on shipping where possible.
If you shop a lot online and are often drawn to US-based stores you might want to consider a mail forwarding service aimed at just this thing. All of these services offer basically the same process:
Step 1 you register and get a US address assigned to you.
Step 2 you do your online shopping at the approved US retailers using the US address you were assigned in step one for shipping.
Step 3 you choose how to consolidate your shipping for it to get to your international home address in the most efficient way possible.
Step 4, it ships and gets to you in a timely manner.
Here are six companies that offer this service. Take a look to see which one works best for your country. It opens up a whole new world of online shopping options.
We hope these services are useful for you. We will continue offering US sales channels that charge full price for shipping (typically $20). We know that is brutal so we are continuing to work on getting into European, Canada, and Australia markets where you will be able to avoid those shipping fees. Thanks for being with us and helping us building T-Rex from the ground up.
