Hey guys, just to let you know that after much ticking of boxes, dotting of I's and crossing of T's Nathan and I are happy to announce that we are once more able to ship our bedding products overseas.

Happy days people! Matchgrade Bedding products are available to all once more (huzzah)!

Your welcome.

Re: Matchgrade Bedding Products.
This is good news I've been waiting for.

Is it a flat rate shipping fee so worthwhile to save up and get multiple bedding kits or does the shipping cost scale up directly with weight?

Re: Matchgrade Bedding Products.
You can go to the order page and enter in the number of kits you wish to buy. Start with one, check the cost, add more until you reach the number you want, compare the cost per kit. It is usually less expensive, per kit, if you do multiples. However, the price does increase as weight increases, but it is not linear.

Re: Matchgrade Bedding Products.
fantastic news.
so glad to hear the news even though im nz

just an idea for you Canadian guys and some of the other guys.
if there is few guys in same country or state it might be worth getting together and doing one big order and dividing it locally then everyone ordering couple kits each and all paying the shipping from nz

Re: Matchgrade Bedding Products.
OK, really bad news as of five minutes ago. We passed every law, we are legal. But we have just been told no more shipments as the couriers do not want to carry regardless. All those effected will be given refunds asap (last 7 days).

I am so sorry about this. I don't understand the point in having laws and advisory services if couriers are choosing to do what they like. We had some really good people working on this from the likes of Mainfreight NZ etc.

Re: Matchgrade Bedding Products.
This is really sad news
Is it cause of the firearm relation or the chemicals in it
if it's the firearm part can you relabel it for foreign markets
sky hook levelling compound, angle grinder sparks compound?

Re: Matchgrade Bedding Products.
Hi Thomas, its the chemical constituents. But in saying this, it would have been the same as trying to send a sample range of nail polish weekly. Its somewhat of a sign of the times I suppose. the laws were quite difficult to understand but a subset of laws had been made specifically to help folk like us. These laws allowed the kits to be sent. So we followed the laws (packaging) but the courier companies still have the right to refuse if they want to, even if the laws have been followed. We had one week where the trial run went through just fine and then an email to say they don't want to take them anymore. We followed up on this but to no avail.

I am so sorry about this guys. I did not really know just how good the compound was until we had to pull it off the international market. For a time I thought that I might just pass the business on to another kit maker (do the right thing) but as customers had pointed out and as I eventually learned, nobody makes a product quite like this. It is quite gutting.

Hey Nathan - do you have any next best recommendations for bedding compounds in the US?
