My husband is an artist and often ships out paintings to buyers. We ship through FedEx, UPS or USPS, they all pick up at your house. I check prices on the internet to decide which one to use, sometimes FedEx is actually the cheapest. If the package is small and light, I'll sometimes print up the postage ahead of time, and walk to the post office and drop it off. There's no line, you just go up to the counter, stick it in a bin, and walk away.
