I was going to give some finacial support to the Tech Support Guy site hear by purchasing a few things but when I started with coffee mugs I couldn't believe how fast the expensive $16 mug went up to $32. I was wondering if it just me or do others think $32 is a little much for a coffee mug made in China. I feel if their prices were a little more realistic they would probably receive far more donations through selling the merchandise.

not to mention using it....drinking quietly in the garden and neighbours pop their heads over and ask you to fix that network problem of theirs.

What option did you chose for shipping? Mine ranges from $5.25 Economy to $21.00 One Day to Oregon for all three: Large Mug ($14.99), Mug ($13.99) or the Stein ($16.99).
Those are US prices, Shipping to Canada may be more, as well as the base price, though the exchange rate today has them pretty close $14.00 US=$14.06 Can.

Okay I see it differently now but still $22 is a little steep. I did buy some when it realy was the ten year celebration so these could be the remenants which you would think should be a clearance item.

If you look at the top of http://www.cafepress.com/techguy/ you'll find that only $3.00 of each price actually goes to the site. They're so expensive because Cafepress creates each item as it's ordered (there is no stock). Maybe due to that, very few people have ordered from the store. I'm thinking it may be time to take it offline.
