The PENPAL story has received a great deal of attention around the internet. I've revised and expanded it; now I want to publish it. Read more
This project was successfully funded on May 2, 2012.
Soon you may begin to receive notifications that your package has been shipped. I've started printing out the shipping labels to get them ready for pick up by the USPS. They should be here Monday to whisk all your packages away! :)
Every aspect of this project has been trickier than I expected, but everything looks great, and it should all arrive quickly and in great shape. Remember the posters? Would you like to know how I was going to ship them originally? I was going to...fold them. Yup. I was going to put TWO big, fat creases in the middle of your poster because I didn't know how else to get them to you with the books. But I figured it out:
Step 1: Hand-roll and bag every single poster
Step 2: Never want to roll posters again
Step 3: Buy bigger, heavier, and more expensive boxes that could fit the posters.
The cost of buying and shipping these boxes is higher, but that's fine. The posters will get to you without creases or bends now.
For now, keep an eye out for your shipping email -- it should be coming from Stamps.com.
