How to ship to Canada without getting bent over?

I have tried a few methods and keep getting my pants pulled down one the cost of shipping. Every Canadian says don't ship UPS, so I don't. I head down to my unfriendly local USPS with some boxes. Sometimes, they tell me, after the fact, that if I could have used a flat rate box I would have saved a few bucks. no big deal, What's a few bucks anyway? today, I go with the medium flat rate box and it's friggin' $32 to ship a marker in the flat rate (that was advertised as $12 and I sent a F'ing envelope for $12 that said $5... What the hell? Of course the people there don't want to help me understand the intricacies of their methods. Just shuffle through, there is a long line after all.... How do you ship north of the border?
<<edit>> Oops, I meant to throw this up in the "Ask the experts section" sorry...

I've always just used USPS, first class mail. It's cheap and relatively quick. I've never shipped markers though, only soft goods.

USPS is the best. They don't charge brokerage fees, which can equal or exceed the cost of shipping. This is why everyone says no ups.

i think it goes the same the other way too. had to pay handling fees with my retro 7 from canada through ups. so if you're trading i would opt for usps as well.

The fine print to Canada say 14 days, everywhere else it's 28. At least that's what I have seen.
