    I'll go with whatever YOU chose Miha, Love your work.

    That said two buys ago, and I don't know if it was your end or ours, but it was about 3 weeks between paypal and receipt of mold and I was getting concerned...
    Normally about 10 days.........

    Maybe I'm too impatient?

    I voted maybe. The $8 up charge is not a deal breaker for full service end to end DHL handling, but neither is waiting a week or two. The single instance I had with full service DHL was fine. On the other hand a recent order from a different vendor started out with DHL, but they transferred to USPS and that added a couple more days. That arrangement is not worth an up charge in my opinion.

    Only thing I've heard is that some guys have had molds get stuck in customs on our side of the pond. Not sure how DHL is going to cure that...

    I have 4 molds of MP’s and the postal wait has not been a problem for me at all. You have to learn patience with group buys so I’m ok with saving a few more dollars. Other wise I would just throw cash out and get a quick/custom mold but... I,m “Thrifty” I appreciate the option being presented and will remain a customer either way. Go with the majority!

    Didn't DHL shut down every Kentucky Fried Chicken outlet in England because of their crappy slow delivery?

    The two molds I have ordered arrived just fine, so keep it the way it is.

    I have no love for DHL, and Slovenia mail is slow, but it gets here. I can wait.

    I vote Slovenia post. I don't mind the wait and I'd rather not support DHL.

    Slovenian post is fine. No hurry. Group buys take from a month to 3+ years to happen, I don't worry if shipping varies from 4 days to 9 days.

    I'm ambivalent either way. if that's what it costs, then that's what it costs. You gotta go with the shipping option that makes the most sense as the shipper. if one has become untrustworthy, then you gotta use a different shipper.

    I'm ok with the regular old method of delivery.
    This country has gone to hell but now there is hope for us.

    Slovenia post has worked very well for me, molds are here in usually less than a week. DHL is more of a hassle, I need to schedule a pick up etc. I vote Slovenia post.

    Only had one delayed, for like 3 months. Customs I expect.
    In the end every thing has arrived, average is about 3 weeks.

    I'm ok with post.

    What you are presently using seems good to me---every mold from you has arrived promptly and in good shape. (Thanks for good packing, by the way!)

    It takes 2 weeks to get your mold and I can deal with that. Only once did it arrive wet but you package it very well, nothing got damaged. I will stay with Slovenian mail service.

    If it is another option, I certainly don't object, but given DHL's reputation, I'd not use it, and keep on with the regular post. If it is either/or, then I'd say no.

    I am in Australia the Miha molds get to me as quick if not quicker than NOE etc. I understand that it's apples and oranges for comparison. I vote NO; for me it is not broke.

    no problems with dhl but whatever works I'm just happy to be able to order a custom mould .
    I have never had anything made custom before I feel privileged to be able to do so. We are pretty fortunate here there are many who are not so free and privileged I feel humbled when I think of our liberties. And those who protect them.
