Hi Wendy

Do you have an 'Office World' store near you? They have a link with a parcel delivery server but I can't remember their name. Something like DT... and it's red and yellow, which certainly catches your eye!

Anyway, perhaps they can help.

Wendy - did you ever solve your postage query? I also need to find a good postage system for canvases of 50 x 65cm ish... can you recommend someone to me?
Thanks!

I use http://www.parcel2go.com for normal sizes but for gigantic ones I use a local carrier.

Hi Wendy
I just filled in your sizes (I guessed the parcel would be approx 12cm thickness) 200x100x12cm on the quote page of http://www.interparcel.com/quote/ (as suggested by Helen) and they offered several different couriers, one of the prices was £40.76+VAT which is expensive but I'm not sure how much you pay your local courier so perhaps it might be worth trying them again.
