A note about International Postage and the end of the world…

Postage delays aren’t fun for anyone.

As you know, the world is not the same now as it was at the beginning of 2020. The aspect that makes it particularly tricky for us (Boys with Plants Admin, which is really just me) is with international postage.

Currently there are large delays. Most of our items are manufactured in the US and get sent directly from the US so when posted to the US it’s not so bad. This can cause issues with countries outside the US of course and I urge you to contact me if you’re package hasn’t arrived.

Our latest item, however, the print edition of the Boys with Plants Magazine is coming from Perth, Western Australia (where I’m based). It’s only letter sized so in normal circumstances it would be popped on the next plane and arrive in a few days…

But. One or two planes flying a week right now doesn’t leave much room for postage, so it’s going via ship. This takes 7-10 days to arrive at it’s destination and then some countries are not dealing with shipments for weeks when they arrive, meaning that our poor little Boys with Plants Magazine will sit in a shipping container for a while before it gets rescued and delivered.

Other countries like Brazil and South Africa are not accepting international postage at all. If you’d like an update on the current status of your country, you might like to look up your local postage service or feel free to contact us and we can have a look for you.

All this is the reason why the print edition of Boys with Plants Magazine – Issue 01 is very limited edition… so if you don’t mind waiting for a bit, go ahead and buy it. You’ll be one of a few people in the world that actually have one!

Ok, it’s not really the end of the world, I was just being dramatic.
