Mailed by Glen March 31 and took longer to get here than mail even at the height of the pandemic! Was getting worried. It’s usually 7-10 days from Australia pre-pandemic.

There was a reason for that.

The envelope came back TWICE back to my street mailbox. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

USPS in their gigantic wisdom, have declared that the ONLY thing that can be loaded to them letter mail MUST be letters. NO merchandise of any kind - like stampboards masks. Seems like they are being all X-Rayed here by AP.

BOTH times the reverse had a mail centre ''RTS'' sticker saying the article needed a green ''CN22'' sticker and hence was returned to sender.

Took them to my postmaster both times, and he assured me that CN22 customs labels can ONLY be used on parcels, i.e. above 500g, and i.e. $19 MINIMUM cost to USA. Not $4 for a 50 gram letter that I have been using.

So after wasting $50 of time on two $10 masks that cost me near that, I finally affixed a green CN22 sticker, dropped it into the nearest red street mailbox, and 3rd time lucky - it appears the Americans decided that now complied, and was now not hiding Nuclear Missiles or Battleships etc.

And Britjag presumably had it eventually arrive with a green CN22 sticker on back. What a time-wasting nonsense. :twisted:

NO other country has this wacky rule for inward mail - just the USA, and AP here are enforcing it strictly.

I take it back - one Britjag envelope was already a bit banged about, so added it to my current Junk box and used yet another $4 stamp on the 3rd time around sending to Britjag - any RTS markings this modern are seldom seen. :!:

My purchase didn’t exactly make a modest contribution to running Stampboards as intended and unintentionally cost you money, but I did very well with both the great face masks AND cover. :mrgreen:

Let’s just hope you don’t have any more U.S. orders! :?

Thanks again for following through, Glen.

Masks arrived today. 9 days from Castlecrag NSW to Atlanta, Ga. USA. I think that's outstanding.

Maybe I'm just lucky, but I have never had problems with mailings from Australia, and I've had many.

These are well made masks.

Thanks Glen.

Hi Glen

I think Australia Post have lost mine.

We frequently get four week delays on interstate mail so I haven't worried but it has been a while now.

I get mail from Canada in a couple of weeks but mail from NSW or Queensland can take six.
Where do the years go? I went from philandering to philately and didn't even notice.

John .. just checked order forms. Nothing ever received from you. :!:

Unless we get an order form, Margo packs nothing - totally impossible to peruse every one of the 7.5 million posts here, to read Member minds that they'd like something, and far harder still to guess their mailing address at the same time!

So busy lately here, order forms that ARE completed we struggle to keep up with! :lol: :lol:

Posting the data again -

For these ones I ordered, (all in generous adult size "L"), they are $A10 each, or 5 for $A40 all plus post which will cover the substantial costs, plus the pricey express EMS/DHL shipping here, and maybe even add a tiny bit toward the huge cost now of running these boards, with our new dedicated image storing servers and software. :mrgreen:

Stock number to use is 459QG for 1 mask, or 459QJ for 2 masks, or 459QL for 3 masks. And 459QH for 5 masks, which are just $A40 plus post.

(For anyone wanting to re-sell on ebay etc, and I think you'll be surprised with the uptake - a double your money item there - lets say 10 for $A70 - Stock 459QJ) -

Please use the secure site for all orders - https://www.glenstephens.com/order.html

So support stampboards, stay protected from COVID, comply with the health laws, and show all others out there you are a stamp collector - and wearing these masks really gets lots of comments. :D

These are absolutely conversation starters WHEREVER you wear them, trust me. Due to the high EMS/DHL shipping cost, small run tooling up and die costs, and negligible profit in these, and then the messing about and packing them up, I made ONE order, and that is it.

Orders yours NOW as you will kick yourself when they are gone. Selling fast I can add them into your normal stamp orders – just ask me. :mrgreen:

DO be sure you compete order form please, or we lose track - www.glenstephens.com/order.html

Sorry Glen and Margo! Sounds like my mistake. Well I'm sure the workers at Australia Post will be breathing a sigh of relief now they know it is not their fault.

Mine have arrived, thanks, Glen and Margo. I took them out to show the person behind the counter at the post office.

"Is that the Queen?" she said. I explained that it was Queen Victoria and that it was the Penny Black, the first stamp from 1840. I'm afraid she had never heard of it. I suddenly felt old as in my generation, that was known by everyone.

It reminded me of the blank look I got from the young man at the local newsagency where they sell a large range of things as well as magazines and papers. I asked him if they sold stamp hinges and he had never heard of such things.

Ah, well! The masks are great and as Glen says, very timely here in Victoria.

Ordered 3 more masks for a friend.

By far, they work the best for anyone who has hearing aids.
The elastic around the head doesn't snag on them.

If you’ve any left please add a face mask to my current order and let me know the additional costs.

Cheers

Down to our last few now and that is that.

NSW and Victoria back into mask wearing restriction, so plenty of life left in these masks yet - get your before they are gone!
