My description of contents was "acrylic stamps, paper, ribbon" even though I only ordered stamps. I wonder if they were more accurate as opposed to specifying the same(?) for every package they send out if we wouldn't get nailed for duty. That's just my hope for next time.

How the US company lists your items on the declaration form has a lot to do with whether or not we pay Canada Post to release our stuff to us since our government has predeteremined what is exempt of import charges.
