I received FOUR private messages this morning asking "did you ship my pin" questions, so i thought I'd head off the rest with a posting...
Everyone that ordered PINS only and pre-paid via paypal or checks that would have been received by me before Dec 1 had their goodies packaged and mailed from the Plano, TX post office Monday morning.
Now, I don't know why, but mail from this neck of the woods takes an extra day or two to get to many areas of the continental U.S.---when I send stuff to Chicago as an example, with a first class stamp, it's typically five days before it's received (I hypothesize that somewhere in the chain, in Texas or Oklahoma, or perhaps Arkansas, they are still using the actual Pony Express).
If you haven't gotten your pin yet, and it's Wednesday...roughly 50 hours since I placed them into the mailbox at the post office, so this shouldn't surprise anyone...please don't fret. I would anticipate a full 5-6 days before the smiling USPS guy hands you your envelope.
IF you have not received your goodies by next Monday's mail delivery, then reach out to me at [email protected]
and we'll figure out what to do next...I obviously didn't put tracking on the envelopes as that would have cost more than the pins themselves.
Now, those who ordered stickers only, prior to November 25th, should already have received them...
If you placed an order for sticker(s) and pin(s) OR placed an order for sticker(s) or both after the 25th, then I've run into the unfortunate circumstance of having run out of the stickers, and am going to have to have another "run" of stickers done.
I am waiting until after this upcoming Sunday's deadling (see above) to determine the final count, as these are going to cost me significantly more than the previous ones did, although I will not pass on the additional cost to anyone on the forum. Apologies for the additional wait time, but I hope you understand.
Once I place that order, the turn-around, because they already have the artwork digitized, is about 24 hours or so. i anticipate packaging the remaining orders and mailing them by the end of the week next week (I am having that spinal surgery Wednesday, but was told i will be able to go back to work Friday), add 5-7 days, and this is a done deal...the next goodie is for someone else to shoulder.
As of 11am today, there are less than ten pins left, and if you want stickers, you need to paypal your order or email me and make sure you get confirmation, telling me you are going to send me a check by SUNDAY.
Hope everyone likes how they came out.
