Y U Ship Print with Parcel Post??

UPS got you down? eBay making you cry? Need to rant? Do it here.
I just picked up a print off EBeans, and the person used Parcel Post. Does Parcel Post really save folks money when shipping one 18x24 print? Nowadays, it seems like rates are pretty identical to Priority Mail if the package is a pound or two. I don't know what I'm trying to get at. Lonely night, I guess. :lol:

Yeah, I thought about shipping a print parcel post a while back but when the PO worker explained the negligible price difference I sent it priority mail. My thought now is that maybe it cuts the number of hands at the post office that can destroy the tube by getting it to its destination a little faster.

I just hope it survives the long haul. Coast to coast trip. Must switch trucks quite a few times before getting here.

i've actually bought from the person a number of times, and it takes a little longer, but always shows up fine! next time i'm giving him the extra $2!
