So... I had went through all sorts of trouble on Friday night trying to get my portfolio of prints & my CD of images to a Canadian distribution company as soon as possible. BUT early this morning I got a call telling me that FedEx refused to pick up the package. Apparently, they cannot pick up international packages when the declared commercial value of the item is $0.00 (which is what I put on the Customs forms since it's just a bunch of pieces of paper...geez...). I was instructed by the distribution company specifically to write "no commercial value" on the package. |
So, I told the guy at Kinko's (where I had attempted to leave the package for shipping) to write in $5.00 in the box, and he did. What a hassle! What a ridiculous policy. Now my package is going to arrive much later than anticipated. Grrrr...
