USPS square box fail via Global Shipping

poor choice to use a square box. i gather the post office was out of triangle boxes but even a small cardboard tube inside the rolled posters may have helped. when a square box flattens, and they all do, then it can be bent. very unfortunate as these Apple posters are hard to come by. The folds may flatten a bit but the little crease is a drag.

another issue with Global Shipping is everything goes to Kentucky. So I buy this poster in Colorado, it is trucked across the county then is sent north to Toronto, then is trucked back to the west where I am. So it travels about 4000 miles by truck and is handled many times and damage is almost inevitable. As the crow flies I am 900 miles from point of purchase, just sayin'...
