Not the Best Business Practice

As a frequent buyer of postcards from various Hippostcard and other dealers, I have a suggestion that I know is unlikely to be well received or adopted.... stop inflating your postage/handling costs. For example, I just received an order of seven postcards that came to $25 but was charged $6 for postage/handling -- that's just about a 25% increase in the final purchase price and that, to me, is just about unreasonable. To make matters worse, this Hippostcard dealer did not place each card in a sleeve, used a flimsy section of a file folder for backing, and sent the package for $.55 -- ripping off the USPS and netting a nice extra profit of $5.45.
