I was really pleased to see that Dragon Dice™ is still alive and well!
I wanted to get more of it when I was young but they stopped selling it, so its cool to see it's still alive and kicking.

Looking at the store, one problem I found is that the shipping costs to the UK are very high (over $40).
It only offered priority international shipping, which is costly.
Is it possible to offer more shipping methods that might be slower but would cost less?
I would rather spend more on dice than using all my budget on shipping charges.

Thank you.

We try and hold down shipping costs as much as possible by using flat-rate boxes when we can. However, with the current price of the US Postal Service, there is no longer any real choice other than Priority mail for packages. And I personally have given up on sending anything not by Priority mail, the last 3 packages I tried to send overseas via First Class all got "lost". Since there is no tracking offered, and no insurance, I was just out those packages. If you do add tracking and insurance to First Class, it becomes more expensive than Priority mail.

Another option is to see if you can find it in the UK. We are carried by all game distributors world-wide.

Hi and welcome,
I'm in Italy and I've bought my dice from the UK as that is where it's easier to find them.

If you need more information send me a PM please, I can give you the names of the shops I know in the UK.

Cheers,
Danilo

I think it's no secret, Midlam Miniatures is a verry good UK Shop.
They have a lot of products including Single dice!
