Foreign shipping and Cafe Press

Around September last year I had ordered a limited edition beta tee from Astraware. I paid for it via credit card, they shipped it and some schmuck over at the warehouse / courier never got it to my house. I emailed the UK based uber cool company that makes games and told them about what happened.

(Yes you do realize that this story is one year in the making)

We (Astraware staff and myself) really only got to act on it a few weeks ago, because I had forgotten about the incident and had remembered only because I needed to ask them for a sponsorship for the next MaPalad portable gaming meet.

The guys let me choose from their Cafe Press site (I don’t think I’m allowed to post the link, but if you find it then cool!) and shipped me really great items. This was almost two weeks ago. My question is, how long does it take for shipped items to reach the land of the Philippines?

UPDATE: Apparently, a few hours after writing this I get 2 claim slips from the post office saying my packages have arrived. Doh!
