thats why you tack on a couple extras to make it worth your while, lol. i only say it because i'm sure everyone here has done it, myself includedI used to question the shipping charges also, as a buyer. It does suck to buy 1 T for 15 or 20 bucks and have to pay 20 bucks for shipping it. But now that I have ordered a ton of T's and seen some of the various packing jobs and the actual cost of the shipping, I have noticed there really isn't any profit in it with the good shippers.
Those little coolers Ken uses are awesome! I have 2 of them now! Easily the best packing ever. Paul also uses a full styrofoam wrapping and vials. It must cost a cpl bucks I gather.
