Just thought I'd vent on the subject. This is no reflection of any seller. I do look forward to the day when shipping overseas might become cheaper. I know that drones are starting to be used and may well be an option, but probably not for overseas shipping.

W're kind of stuck having to use planes to get it there and back. I've always had the thought that SOMEONE is really cleaning up and retiring on shipping. I mean, one package to Italy is approximately 150.00 to 175.00 dollars, (that's for the weight of two super 8 features) ...

Now, that's only ONE package to Italy, on a plane that has countless packages, going to Italy, per day ...

Can you imagine as to just HOW much money these shipping companies are making?

That is the unfortunate part...while the service to improve the prints is a plus the cost of getting them there makes it a no- go.
