That sucks about the extra charges for shipping... I had been thinking about the same thing (sending it to friend is US, then have them send it to me).

And it almost doesn't surprise me because originally I was told they would arrive in three weeks which was either the end of this week or early next week, but when I called to confirm the other day, they said no it would be another two weeks. Oddly enough i'm not even mad or anything, just grateful that I had called already this week and we're on top of it in time to still fix the situation.

We got our mugs last week and I've been meaning to post a picture of them. We bought 44 mugs for $215.00 USD which included shipping costs. Then when FI picked them up here in Canada he had to pay another $16.99 at the Canadian Border Services, which was the GST and PST. He did not pay any brokerage fees because he did all of the paper work himself. He went to UPS and picked up the papers needed to declare the mugs, then went to Canada Border Services to declare the mugs and that is where he was charged the GST and PST. He's not sure exactly how he didn't end up paying more, but I guess if you do the leg work yourself you don't need to pay the extra fees?
Here are the pics, it's been a while since I've done this so I hope they show up!

My FMIL just received the mugs that I ordered! I live up in the NWT so I had them shipped to her to save on time and shipping costs since we'll be visiting her before the wedding. I was going to have her take a picture of them and email them to me, but FI told me that she knows I must be dying to see them so she mailed one to us (she's so sweet). I'll post a pic once I have it, but she said that they looked great.
Here's my verdict so far (without having seen them):
Shipping time was reasonable. I had to go back and forth a bit with the art department because my first imprint colour wouldn't have shown up well against my mugs, but even with that it only delayed receiving them by a week. So give yourself some extra time when you order in case there are any issues like that.
The customs fees weren't too bad- about $70 on a $230 order. That may sound like a lot, but similar mugs through 4imprint would have worked out to be more in the end. Discount mugs had cheaper mugs and cheaper shipping so even with the extra charges over all I saved about $80.
They sent me ten extra mugs! I double checked, and they only charged me for the 30 that I originally ordered so I don't know what's up with that. FMIL said that there were a few mugs that seemed off- the colour on the mug itself was streaked so she's was thinking that they had to do an extra batch and just sent them all to me?
Hope this helps, I'll post a pic when I have one!
