So we're offering everyone who has purchased or wants to purchase Issue 4 as a single issue or as part of a subscription the opportunity to upgrade their postal options and receive their poster rolled in a tube. The magazine will also be rolled up in the tube.

Another great feature we've added is the option to pay in US dollars! So many of our readers are based in North America, we hope that this will help out ant lovers over there. We do have plans to extend the range of currencies we are able to accept.
