email reply from obey:

Hi,
Due to stress and the time involved to ship USPS we have decided to use UPS for all our international orders. The package will be fully insured, tracking is reliable and the damage claims will be processed in a matter of weeks as opposed to months. Due to the upgrade in quality of this service our international shipping prices have been increased. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you. We hope you understand the need for this change.
thank you for your support!

this will also 'fakely' raise market prices now , any non usa person ordering a print , will sell for at least 100 150 bucks his print , no matter what it is , since this is what it costs.

lame.

good point so it will also raise the value in USA which is bad for american buyers and good for flippers

Oh I agree it does clear things up.....I think us Euros are all a bit highly strung tonight (as you can imagine)

Now how do I tell my Kid that daddy can't afford her first OG print?

Reminds me of Arrested Development

Tobias Fünke: O-kay, who'd like a banger in the mouth?
Tobias Fünke: Right, I forgot, here in the States, you call it a *sausage* in the mouth.
Michael: We just call it a sausage.
