Coy Bacon passes away

Last week Coy Bacon passed away. Coy was selected to three Pro Bowls during his 14-year career as a defensive lineman in the NFL and traveled as a motivational speaker. You can learn more about Coy on Wikipedia.

A longtime friend of Coy’s let me know today that he was able to purchase a couple of Coy’s cards on Christmas day. We shipped the cards on Friday, and they arrived in Ohio today. They were just in time for the visitation, and one of the cards was given to Coy’s granddaughter who was very appreciative.

It is encouraging to hear that our service is being used to help spread some joy. Our prayers go out to the Bacon family.

Weather may cause shipping delay

You are more than welcome to take advantage of our last day of $7 shipping, but I need to warn you that even if we package all of the orders on time, the packages still may not arrive in time for Christmas.

All orders placed by Saturday morning have already been shipped, and we were hoping to package the rest of the orders by the end of the day on Monday. However, we have had a series of big snow storms in Seattle. People have been encouraged to stay home, and a lot of flights have been canceled. I don’t believe the post office is operating at full capacity either. The snow and ice is expected to stay through Wednesday, and Seattle doesn’t have the plows to clear up the roads.

We will continue to do everything we can safely do to get your cards shipped and processed as soon as possible, but we are at the mercy of the weather.

We appreciate your patience.

Expedited Shipping & Gift Receipts

With the holiday season upon us there has been a steep rise in the need for some additional shipping options. So I spent the last few days revamping our systems so that we can efficiently expedite orders and so that we can print gift receipts complete with personalized gift messages.

When you check the Gift Receipt checkbox, we will print an invoice that does not include any of the purchase prices, tax, or shipping information. We will also give you the option to include a Gift Message.

We normally package orders within 2 business days and ship them via First-Class Mail® from the USPS. The packages are coming from the Seattle area, and depending on where you live, it may take a week or more for your package to arrive. If that is not fast enough for you, we have added two additional options.

With Priority Shipping we will package your orders first thing every morning and make sure they get shipped that day with the 2-day Priority Mail® service from the USPS. The package should arrive within 3-4 business days. This option is only available when shipping within the United Sates.

With Overnight Shipping we will package your orders first thing every morning and last thing at the end of every business day. We will then make special trips to the post office just to make sure that your package gets shipped with the Express Mail® service from the USPS. The package should arrive within 1-2 business days. This option is only available when shipping within the United Sates.
