Some advise please. I have some super 8 films to ship to America and have to fill in customs labels, does anyone have any idea what to put on the label as I don't want the recipients to get charged customs charges, cheer's, Del.

It say's quantity and detailed description of contents and then value.

Hi, Del,
In my experience it's best to ask who you are shipping to how they want the label filled in. Normally, underplaying the value works - I always price the 'gift films' at around the £20 mark, if the buyer agrees. Never had any problems yet!

Hey del, are you "del-city"? If so, I am the buyer of "High Plains Drifter" and "gift" is perfect for my label,

if, in fact, you are the del in question!

well well Osi, it's a small world, just trying to make sure you and another buyer from America doesn't get stung with the old custom charges. You know it makes sense [Big Grin]

So you're Del-City, in that case I think I have a parcel on its way from you too!

Indeed it is a small world [Wink]

Remember to put cine films as well as they are exempt from tax in the US anyway.
Best Mark.

Mike if I remember rightly it's quite a mint print that one, I've tried to be as honest as possible with the films I have listed, I've even watched the odd ones again just to make sure. Thanks for that Mark, I put on the label that they were super 8mm films.
