~*~BUBBLE WRAPPED POSTAGE~*~
~ADD THIS ITEM TO YOUR ORDER IF YOU WANT A PROTECTIVE LAYER OF BUBBLE WRAP ON YOUR TAPES (you can read below why this is here)~
All orders WITHOUT this option added when checking out will be posted with bubble wrap on the inside of the tape case and wrapped in a single layer of regular, un-padded paper. This keeps costs down, but does not guarantee the safety of your tape/s (although it'll probably be fine!).
Any orders with 3 or more tapes will get padded packaging automatically.
Sorry if this is a bit confusing, we got two "underpaid" mail notices from Aus Post and it was a lot of money to dish out for something so fundamental for an online store, and it really hurt the ol' wallet.
So as you probably know, Australia Post are very adamant about what is and what is not a "large letter". For instance, a cassette wrapped in a single layer of bubble wrap (or a small padded bag) to ensure its safe handling and arrival to you is NOT a large letter, and will cost approximately 7(ish) dollaridoos to send. It sucks, but unfortunately that's the way Aus Post are doing things now.
The "large letter" postage is cheaper than the padded bag, and the parcel must be able to drop freely through the letter gauging card at the post office in order for it to clear inspection (see pics). We actually have one of the official Aus Post letter gauge cards now, so we can wrap tapes up in compliance with the "large letter" dimensions, allowing us to keep postage costs DOWN, which is a bloody good thing!
IN SHORT: Please ensure that if you want your order to be wrapped in bubble wrap that you add this extra option to your order, allowing the correct costs of postage to be adjusted when checking out.
