US Customs [Dec. 30th, 2002|11:08 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
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...

Thanks ;)

Yep, I recently signed a contract for a Canadian distribution company for my open edition prints. I am signing another contract this week for a Fairy Art book! I hope the New Year brings some more contracts my way...lol!

It's a collaboration with other artists - Brian Froud, Amy Brown, Stephanie Pui-Mun Law, Jessica Galbreth, and a few others. I'm very excited about it - Brian Froud is one of my favourite artists of all time and I can't believe I'm working on the same project with him!
