    Today I send mine , right over the dead line !!

    I paste my painting on self-adhesive foambord to give a better support and a piece of cardboard over to protect it from bending .
    This time , I get an asshole post office employee , that say that "He doesn't know what is in the package" and pretend that I send it through the customs office !!!:thumbsdown:

    I went to customs and think "This is ridiculous":poo: , so I came back to discuss again.
    My argument was simple "is my 7th and never have this problem before" but wasn't enough for him , he say " depends on the employee good will " !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:mad:

    So , before I tear his head out , I jump to another employee to explain again the situation , while I doing this , the asshole come trying to screw me again saying to this guy that he must not send it :mad:

    This is not all , the new guy have better dedication , so I chat more about the paintpal system and show him a picture of my card , then he say "did you have artist license to send this ?" "how much this cost ?":eek:

    Artist license !!!!!!! this is the most absurd thing that happened to me in the postal system by now :alien:

    Finally the guy understand and send it , even he ask me for my facebook page and take my phone number for future reference and maybe a t-shirt

    Is there anyone that experiment something similar ?

    First I just put it in either a photo mailer or lately I custom make the mailer on a machine I use here at work.
    I make sure I know it will pass through a mail slot (they check for that at the post office here) , Then when they ask what I am sending I tell them a photo for a friend .
    The first out of country one I tried to send they wanted customs forms , what type of paint , any clear coating, and a long list of things.
    But a neighbor of mine who works for the post office told me what I needed to do and what I needed to say just to have no issues on sending it.
    He also told me not to track it cause in some places that raises red flags and they hold it for a super long time.
    So since then I have not had any issues sending something across the pond.. now send something to Florida is still hit or miss LOL

    I super wrapped mine. LOL Between cardboard and wrapped in bubble wrap. Then into the large envelope. Well, based on the problems the others have had, mine might get stuck in customs. LOL Sorry for that my paint pal. Hopefully you'll get it soon.
