And...after all that, shipping to Canada is more than thirty fucking dollars. You lose Shout Factory.

More like Fuck You! Factory, amirite?

So many companies accept that Fedex and UPS prices to Canada are just high and that's all they can do about it. But I buy shit from American retailers online all the time (bigger and smaller than Shout Factory) for a shitload less. I would have expected between 12 and 15.

Des, they just did a fuck of a hike on USPS international services - international priority, for just a small flate-rate box, is now $23.95. Hell, someone I know sent a small first class pacakge to Canada, about 2 oz, and it cost them $15. So, $30 is probably gonna be towards the low end these days. ><

Not sure how far from the border you are but are there any border parcel pickup services you can look into (there's one in Pembina, ND that caters to southern Manitoba)

Also, because it's October, Scream Factory (the horror arm of the great Shout Factory) are doing a daily sale with free ground shipping in the US. They have AMAZING product and I would definitely be into it if the shipping to Canada wasn't a kick in the balls. Oh well, you yanks can enjoy their stuff anyway:
