>>Please send your opinion of using RPS as a carrier for pottery...

Marshal, I've never used them but I have two customers who refuse shipments
if RPS is used. They're both sorta high-endish galleries (they probably
have my functional thrown stuff for their blue light specials). They've
had a few nightmares with receiving chards instead of art work and RPS
didn't pay for their damages. A few other customers don't want USPS but
they've obviously lowered their standards while the strike is on. (Anybody
on the list a present or former USPS employee, PUT YOUR UZI DOWN!!! I was
only kidding about your low standards.)

I looked into using RPS but they're not taking anymore new customers per
their website (

I sure hope the strike ends soon. USPS in town only allows four boxes per
day per business. I have about forty boxes to ship in September. I'll be
driving all over hell's half acre to the small town post offices dropping
off four boxes at each place.
