Any chance of being able to choose the shipping option "A stamp" when
ordering holiday stuff or things that ship in leftover envelopes like the
icehouse stash pack

nope.  we pay a $3 handling charge to our warehouse for each order
they pack - on top of the actual cost of postage. so when someone
orders just a Fluxx deck - their $3 shipping charge covers this fee,
and we pick up the actual cost of postage. But if you think about
it coming out of the extra profit we get for selling it at full price,
instead of discounted to a retailer - it all washes out.

we lose money on really tiny orders, like just a few promo cards
or just a copy of Are You a Werewolf - but it all washes out in
the end, so we don't worry about it.  we need a low shipping cost,
or people will shop around and find all sorts of places online
that sell our stuff at significant discount.

You can always order them with other things, and then turn them
around yourself with a stamp if you are sending them as a gift.
