Hi Sam, thanks for replying :)

"But if I understand you correctly, you're saying that each member of your club wants all the army/card sets?  Or that, collectively, you're going to have all the armies because you'll each have one set?"

Note quite, everyone wanted different armies, but the problem is when you order multiple sets, Drive Thru Cards charges you full postage for _each_ set, you don't save on postage by ordering mutiples.

So order one set, you pay $36 including 1 x shipping; order 10 sets, you pay $360 including _10_ x shipping! There's no shipping concession for orders of multiple items  :(

Orders to the UK can also be charged import/customs duty on top of this!

Hence my question about PDFs for the card sets for those of us in far off regions! That way, people could have a choice what worked best for them – pro-produced cards or print your own (like they do with the full rulesets).

Ease of ordering and acquisition just helps the rules get wider take up too  :) 

For this order, I offered to get this order of Drive Thru Cards sent to my daughter in St Louis and we're visiting next week, but this won't be possible but once a year or less.

Please go for the PDF option too :)

Somethng about this doesn't sound correct.  I've emailed and asked them.

OK, as I suspected, there's some misunderstanding.  DriveThru Cards informs me:

Quote
We do not charge shipping multiples based on item quantity. We poll USPS servers in real time and simply return what they return based on the weight information we send. We then add $1.25 for materials/handling.

Your group could make a single order and only pay postage once, which - depending upon the size and weight - will probably be anywhere from $30 to $60 US.
