An Post which is the Irish post service for those of you from outside Ireland, are doing a special offer on pre-paid postage labels during the pandemic which finishes end of September. So I want to buy as many as possible securing cheaper postage for as long as possible so will be offering 15% off on all orders for the next little bit with the idea of generating enough money to buy a big lump of shipping labels securing cheaper postage for all of you for as long as possible.
So at checkout enter discount code: DISTROTABLE to get 15% off your entire order.
Thanks for all your support this discount is going to help provide a future of cheaper postage over the next few months possibly year.
Tip for regular orders:
For anyone who wants to buy records and not pay postage everytime add your records to a pile by selecting Pick Up at checkout reserving the records you want and once you have a pile of records you can just pay postage once and get everything shipped at once.
Anyone in Ireland as postage is 6.60 whether you buy one LP or twenty. So instead of buying one record and paying 6.60 postage every week you can buy one record a week and get everything shipped two or three weeks later saving you a lot on postage.
I have been a big fan of the punk coming out of France and one label in particular Destructure and just got a bunch of records in that you should really check out if you like hardcore punk, I am not saying buy these records I am saying check out these bands as they are great. Bombardement 7" which came out last month is here D-beat from BDX, France return with the follow up to their 12" featuring members of Gasmask Terror. Youth Avoiders 2nd LP Relentless is now in stock 11 songs that go at an unrestrained pace helping the LP live up to its title. Lyon melodic punks Litige return with their second 12" of catchy punk member of Short Days, Syndrome 81 "Béton Nostalgie" LP is a collection of songs released on various EP and split records bringing French oi! sound of the '80s with a heavy stomp culled from classic USHC.

Step by step guide:
For the first time in a long time I can say I can substantially reduce shipping rates in Ireland and Northern Ireland.
Postage for ordering 1x 12″ record will be the same as if you order 20x 12″ with the cost being €6.60 (usually €9.00) and Free postage on orders over €100 for Ireland and Northern Ireland* through the webstore distrotable.com
*North Ireland: Please put your country as Ireland as N.I. is not an option at check out and send a note if you put UK you will be charge UK rates.
I know it still is not cheap but €6.60 which usually €9.00 is alot better. Year on year postage rates have been going up and up, it is an awful kick in the teeth when you try to run a distro on a shoestring in the West of Ireland which means I rely heavily on post and most customers have to pay postage to get items. But due to the pandemic and more businesses offering online shopping An Post has a special offer to allow buying shipping labels at a reduced rate till September.
I have always tried to keep postage rates as low as possible despite rising shipping costs and have for the last couple of years tried to not implement postal rises having not raise the postage rate above 500g(1×12″ and something else) since 2017.
So going to try and buy as many postal labels as possible before the offer ends to keep the postage rate as low as possible after this offer ends. After which I will try and review postage costs and see if I can still make a similar offer on postage.
I am really happy about this and wish I could extend this to outside of Ireland but UK people I do offer free shipping over €100
The distro is expanding with a lot of new arrivals and I will be taking on a broader range of releases over the next while and more coming in the next few weeks. Thanks for your continued support and I am surprised you kept reading my rambling this far.
I have also set up a group on Facebook where I post what is arriving and give early access to distro arrivals before they are made widely available across the webstore Facebook Group
