Default Shipping badge from US to Uk

Hi guys. Need some help. What's the best quickest and economical way to ship a small cap badge from US to UK. Is there a registered mail option. Also does it arrive safely.
Would appreciate some advice.
Thanks in advance.

If you are in the US and shipping to the UK, then I suggest you enquire at your local post office. If you are in the UK and are having it shipped by an individual in the US, then again you need to seek advice from the guy who is going to ship it. There will be a "signed for and tracked" option which will add to the cost. Generally, items arrive safely. However, make sure that there is a completed Customs declaration on the packet. Depending on the value shown Customs may seek to charge you duty/VAT. Also, they may open the packet to examine the contents which will cause a slight delay. Generally speaking there should be no problem.

Dave.

Used to be:

USPS flat rate pack which was $US5 to $US10 to anywhere in the world.

This is cardboard envelope sold at US post offices of different sizes. You have to ask and the guys behind the counter who will probably not know what you are talking about so check the USPS web site first and confirm.

It was (is) the best kept secret in the world as US postal service prefer you to pack goods up using your own packaging and then them ship for LOTS more.

Regards,

Chris
