Doug, the biggest swing factor in shipping costs is weight. For a lot of upcoming product (such as the t-shirts), or for dice (which we may not have received in our warehouse before), we have to guesstimate how big the product is or how heavy it is. As we actually get the final product in-hand, our warehouse staff will measure and weigh the product and update it in our system, but until that happens, we have a default weight that may not always be accurate, and there is some rounding to err on the side of caution, and depending on the product, we may have to use different packaging (cardboard envelope vs. box, for example). Further, shipping prices can be considerably less depending on the volume that you ship out through a particular carrier—in my experience with several different companies and postal carriers, this can mean anywhere between a couple of cents to several dollars per package. In addition, our warehouse takes great pride in ensuring that your order is securely packed so that your product arrive in mint condition (nobody likes a dinged-up hardcover that looks like it's chewed upon by goblins when they've paid full price for it). Packaging material has weight, and again, weight is everything for shipping prices, but we want your product to arrive in the best condition possible, and in some circumstances, we actually lose money on shipping to keep it reasonable for the customer.
Something that works pretty well for me is using the Evernote Web Clipper and Evernote Clearly extensions for Chrome. Clearly strips the page down to just text (sadly while removing who posted what), while the Evernote Web Clipper allows you to save whatever you have selected to your Evernote account. (Only works on a per-page basis, mind you.)
Pretty sure kittens are not an accepted form of currency for the warehouse crew. For the cave raptors though, kittens are definitely accepted in whatever denomination you have.
That's great. Is there a place where I can look the rules up online? The PRD only seems to have the material from the main books and I don't see it on d20pfsrd.com either.
We haven't released Ultimate Campaign yet, but there is usually a delay between the release of the PDF and when it gets to the Pathfinder Reference Document (should we decide to do it) and d20pfsrd.com or similar sites. If a third-party site has the kingdom building rules from Kingmaker on a website, I'm not familiar with it.
I am wondering. Would the Build Point rules become part of the SRD, so I could include them in documents for a homebrew setting that I make publically available?
Ultimate Campaign is already listed in the Products Which May Be Referenced for the Pathfinder Compatibility License, and the kingdom building rules have always been Open Game Content since we first released them in the Kingmaker Adventure Path (which allowed for third-party products like Book of the River Nations by Jon Brazer Enterprises). So yes, you could. :)

There is an official Pathfinder Reference Document, with Words of Power detailed in it. d20pfsrd.com is operating under the Pathfinder Compatibility License, but was previously under the Pathfinder Community Use Policy, but I believe they're still in the process of extricating our intellectual property (which they could mention and use under the terms of the CUP) to match the Compatibility License (which is more restrictive). There is Open Game Content in just about every Pathfinder and 3.5 product that we've released, but as a third-party publisher you need to be careful how you use it in your product if it's not under Exhibit B: List of Products That May Be Referenced.
Both policies prohibit making any commercial or creative endeavor to be a 100% imitation of our trade dress (how our products look). I do know that Saber is very similar to the font used in the logo (it was used in the Wayfinder logo, for example), but again, you can't make your products look like ours (the specific terms are under the Usage Requirements for the Community Use Policy).

Isnt that a zip file of lots of individual scenarios? What I mean is I'd like to have one continuous PDF file.
It is a ZIP file of the individual scenarios, not a continuous PDF file. Having it broken into individual scenarios allows us to update each one individually (if needed).
