    USPS Priority Mail International:
    Priority Mail International (PMI) provides customers with a reliable and
    economical means of sending correspondence and merchandise up to 70
    pounds to over 190 countries and territories worldwide.

    USPS First-Class Mail International :
    The most economical way to send letters, large envelopes, small packages,
    postal cards, printed matter, and small packets 4 pounds and under, worldwide.

    ---

    Both are what we call "Air mail" as what we call "sea mail" is now outdated
    and not used unless the item is way to big and needs to be sent with all the
    other bigger items in the shipping containers or unless asked for.

    Both are approx. 6 to 10 business days, its just one is for small packets and
    the other is for parcels.

    Hope that helps and 100 cards for US$6.00 is pretty god damn good. Hope
    they are packet properly and not just stuck in one of there flat rate letter
    envelopes, some people tell you they will even open a sealed box and pack
    them in flat rate envelope to save you money.

    If you allow any less then 2 weeks ya dreaming!! hahah! Just remember, there's a lot of variables with the mail service, I don't usually get worried until about the 4 week mark!

    The guy I buy my Indiana Jones boxes from has them at my house within 6
    days every time using USPS Priority Mail International, no matter how many I
    order from him.

    Most stuff I order from America is at my place within 6 days and the
    Netherlands is about 6 days aswell.

    I have never had to wait two weeks from America, that's just lazy sending.

    I've had things come from Australia that have taken about two weeks but
    most people have them here in three days.

    Not always lazy sending. You will see fluctuations in the US mail system and delivery times to Australia all the time. 6 days is pretty good, 10 days is about average and 4 weeks is what it can sometimes blow out to for no other reason than it does.

    Heck, i've had a parcel I thought that went missing that I sent and 8 months later it arrived at its destination!

    I currently have 6 cards on the way to Malaysia, I thought they should be
    there by now but have not received feedback yet unless he is just lazy, so I'm
    a bit scared about them as its the first time sending there and don't know how
    long it takes and if they disappear I will owe the guy $77.60.

    8 months is just mental, I swear some post guy just sticks it under the desk
    and laughs until he puts it back into the flow.

    Unless its a holiday, mail during holidays is the worst I have seen as everyone
    sends cards and gifts.
