@othertravel When do you need the ties for? For most orders I use Royal Mail Airsure, charged at £9.50. I normally quote 5-7 business days for delivery. I am able to ship via UPS but expect this to be at least £40. If you need them really quickly, send me a PM or an email and I'll get you an exact quote. Agree with Flyswatter. The rule normally is that the larger weave is slightly less formal, but that's nothing to do with being a staple.
