I just got a card and reader from them.  They did everything by the
book.  There was a customs declaration on the outside of the box.  They
even had an FCC clearance for the reader inside the box just in case
customs decided to open it up.  (They didn't.)

Meanwhile, when I ordered a crypto-stick from the GPF I'm pretty sure it
just showed up in a yellow envelope with a hand-written address.  I
don't think it had any customs declaration or anything.  And that showed
up just fine as well.

I don't think you have anything to worry about.
