Postage for a photo from the UK to the US would still only be but a few dollars (or pounds, I guess). I ship to the UK on a near-weekly basis and even boat/freight mail takes around 7-10 days tops. That's not a long time. Trouble though is the wait for your letter to be read/returned.

I used to send letters and cards to my favorite players when I was a kid, and nearly everyone sent one back. To the best as I could ever tell, they were all real except Patrick Roy. The bigger names took forever to get returned, especially Mario. When it finally came I hit the roof. Even Gretzky's came more quickly. That one was definitely done in Sharpie, though whether or not it was autopen I couldn't say. I like to think it wasn't. Looked real enough, and that's all that mattered at the time :p Anyway, point being, your shipping time is nothing compared to the "wait" time for your request to be handled (which hopefully they do for everyone who writes).
