T-Shirts
« on: 17 Apr 2019, 00:50 »

Hi there Jeph.

Am loving QC.

I live in the UK.

I'm never going to buy one of you t-shirts, not 'cos I don't want to, I really do, but because you ship from the US, we have to pay tax (and I have no problem with that, well, not much  :meh:) but, if our customs people open the package (and the often do) we get charged more that 10 ($13) inspection fee.

So. I wondered if you would consider selling, for example, iron-on transfers of the artwork? They would attract less in the way of inspections (I believe) and as they are printed material, they would also attract no VAT.

I win, 'cos I just pay you for the goods and you win 'cos I buy something rather than nothing from you.

Just a thought

No wonder the government supports domestic producers and specifically imposes additional taxes so that you do not buy things from abroad. But you can always find a way around these taxes. Recently I wanted to buy some t-shirts for referees here https://matohash.com/collections/mens-referee-shirts. I was thinking about ordering direct shipping to Europe. Still, a friend of mine in the U.S. suggested I send the t-shirts through an acquaintance who will be flying to Europe soon. That way, I could save a lot of money on shipping and taxes.
