August 6 "I Dream Of Wires" shipping update

Post by s o l v e n t » Tue Aug 06, 2013 12:40 pm

Hi... I know a lot of you are watching your mailboxes for your IDOW shipment, so I wanted to explain what is happening. We shipped out some, but the Canada Post shipping costs were killing us, so we've opted for a service that will ship our goods out via USPS. I've got a truck scheduled to come pick up the motherload early next week, drive it all down to the US and ship from there. Based on this, it looks like the vast majority of orders will be received mid-August for North American orders, late-August for International orders. I hope that this post doesn't lead to an outcry of it being a "delay," because it is still in line with our Shipping Update post (see link below). OK, back to the grind...

PS if anyone in Toronto is anxious for their goods, I am totally happy to arrange a pick up. I'm in the Junction/High Park area

thanks

Jason

Has there been a price increase there or how come?

I don't even want to watch it anymore.


Even with this delay, they will probably arrive to us in the states sooner shipping from the US vs Canada.

Thanks for the consistent updates Jason.

It's always been way more expensive than USPS and yes, there were price increases as well about 6 months ago. More importantly they removed some shipping methods that we would've used that would've been more competitive with USPS prices.

I probably should've figured all of this out way in advance but truthfully I was just too busy with all of the other things that needed to be done to get the film completed.

Canadian orders are also going with the motherload. The company does Can Post shipments too. No real $ savings on Can Post but just the convenience of 1 place taking it all and dealing with it... so worth it!

I took two weeks of vacation so I could sit all day in a plastic lawn chair on my driveway and watch for my IDOW delivery. The good news is that the ice cream man comes by twice a day—and I love Nutty Buddies! The bad news is, the neighborhood moms must be be watching me because they're not letting their kids go outside. The really bad news is I'm spending about $20 a day on ice cream to make up for the lost sales and to make sure the ice cream man keeps coming back. On top of that, I have this horrible, horrible little tune running through my head and it'll probably be weeks before I can write anything original. :bang:

Thanks for the update. Guess I'll be going back to work in the morning. :lol:
