US Imports? Aug. 11th, 2003 10:09 pm
Anyone ever bought T-shirts from Thinkgeek for UK delivery?
Anyone want anything from there if I were to manage to pull together a bulk order?

I'm trying to figure approx how much the customs charges would be - any ideas, let me know. (Shipping looks like about $3 on a T-shirt, or less, once numbers get up).

To Clarify: I've no intent of trying to dodge customs; I'm trying to find out if customs make this impractical, which it looks like they might - I'll have to try and find out if trade imports are any cheaper as there might be someone who can help there...

The customs stuff can be quite painful, I got hit for enough to make me wince when it arrived. I emailed them about it, and they said they were going to add a ticky box on the order form so you could claim the stuff was a gift from someone in the USA (which makes it immune apparently)... dunno if they ever got around to it.
