Airmail to Canada has been suspended!

Airmail to Canada has been suspended!

Some unfortunate news. Airmail and EMS have been suspended for Canada. This Is particularly annoying because I had a large airmail shipment ready to go today, half of which was destined for Canada. I will be switching to Surface Mail, as I have been doing for the US and other countries with suspended airmail. Surface mail can take 2-3 months to deliver a package. There is also the option of Yamato Transport. I’ve been hesitant to offer it because it is a little more time consuming to prepare than Japan Post shipments. While they are fast, and reasonably priced when...


Two important updates!

Two important updates!

First, for people living in the US, airmail has kind of been restored, but there are a few catches. First, it’s only parcels below 2kg, good for a few average sized HGs or one average sized MG. The main catch is that there’s no insurance or tracking. On top of all of that, delays will still be expected. Honestly, I’m not going to use airmail for the US unless you guys request it.

So the first thing I did was start looking for a new shop space so that I could better handle the new workload. Four months, a ton of paperwork and bureaucracy later, I finally have the new shop, a new visa, and this permit, all of which will allow me to make this business my main focus. I’ve already sent my resignation letter to my employer. In two weeks time, Side Seven Exports...


Be Back Soon

Hello everyone. Just wanted to let  everyone know, I’m currently out of town on my honeymoon. Don’t worry, I’ll be back to work on Monday.

I also want to let you all know where things stand on the new shop. Right now, it’s basically a waiting period. I’m waiting on my new visa so that I can quit my day job and be legally allowed to be self-employed, and I’m waiting on the permit for my new shop to be approved so that I can officially use it as  my official business location. Hopefully, I’ll be able to start doing this...
