I'm thinking these caps can go via padded envelope?
But yah once you reach a certain gram weight, shipping does sky rocket!
See my location : Helsinki.
Here's some quick math.
You need 25 wine bottles to bottle a 5 gallon batch.
Those 10 packs of rubber caps might be found for about 2.50 - 3 EUR. So, three packs of rubber sima caps comes to between 7.50 and 9 EUR.
If the letter is max 3cm thick, then it's the lowest postage. If I can manage to squeeze them almost flat into a stiff envelope (which costs about 2 EUR from the post office), the postage is the cheapest - either 9 EUR (max 250g) or 13.50 EUR (251-500g). Padded envelope would go past 3cm thick and then the fee becomes 3 or 4 times more.
And I'd need 10 EUR just for taking the time to do all of that. So in the end, those rubber caps end up costing you 1 EUR each - 30 EUR total. Is that worth it to you?
