Tomb whom it may concern: COMC is on the dark and winding road to the Fall Expo! We are returning from the afterlife to reappear once again at the 58th Sportcard & Memorabilia Expo on November 15th, 16th, & 17th at the International Convention Centre at 6900 Airport Road in Mississauga, Ontario!
We will be eating leftover candy and monitoring paranormal activity at Booth #3300 in between the Upper Deck and the Autograph Pavilion. In attendance will be Geoff “Don’t Call Me Steve” Holland, Boo-Barry, and Jim “The Wizard of” Osborn. We will be conducting the usual morbid events and perhaps will surprise you with a few other fang-tasticly unexpected things.
Stop by the COMC Lair each day of the Expo for a free treat – One per customer per day, while supplies last.
The spirits of hockey greats lie within the cardboard in our display case. Spin the COMC Prize Wheel to determine which portal you’ll open and grasp an entry to win one of these 20 prizes! To qualify for this hair-raising experience you must have a COMC account. All participants will receive a COMC branded miniature coffin in the shape of a storage box (while supplies last).
Winners will be drawn the week of November 17th and the results will be SCREAMED on our Facebook page and our “blob”post
Games for the Kids!
All little Goblins, Witches, and Skull Troopers (Yes, that’s a Fortnite reference) accompanied by a COMC account holding “mummy” or daddy can spin-to-win prizes that magically appear (while supplies last). The chilling details will be announced at the show!
Drop Off Consignments Accepted!
As always, we’ll be accepting your drop-off submissions of cardboard, candy corn, and caramel apples!
Please read the instruction below to help facilitate a smooth hand-off without any scares. There is a ominous submission limit of 10,000 cards per account. We will gladly accept more than 10K cards, but those over and above will have their due date extended by a full moon cycle (one extra month).
1) All submissions must have complete, accurate, & spook-tacular paperwork by using our evil Submission Wizard. Use the Expo drop-off location option on step 5 of the submission wizard to magically expedite processing. You will receive a hard copy receipt to acknowledge your drop off.
2) Ensure your submission is packed securely so it doesn’t arrive in a gruesome state. We strongly recommend one row boxes (400ct, 550ct, 666ct, 800ct) instead of the multi-row boxes (such as 1600ct or 3200ct). For large submissions, multiple single row boxes can used, marked 1 of X, 2 of X.
3) The cut-off time for accepting submissions at the show will be Sunday, November 17th at 3:00PM local time. After that, we vanish into the night.

Following five weeks of rotating strikes, Back-to-Work Legislation for Canadian Post employees to return to work has been passed by the Canadian Government effective on November 27th. The Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW) have been on rotating strikes since October 22nd, and may continue to the fight the legislation that was recently passed.
Impact on our Canadian Customers:
The rotating legal strikes have created a severe backlog of mail and parcels, which is expected to grow even larger due to the increased volume of eCommerce over the Black Friday and Cyber Monday period. Delivery delays are expected to continue for the foreseeable future through the Holiday season and into January 2019.
While Canada Post is operational and working diligently to minimize service impacts, mail and parcels will be handled on a first-in, first-out basis. Even after striking stops and Canada Post stabilizes, mail and parcels recently shipped will still be subject to the same lengthy delays as mail and parcels shipped during the rotating strike period.
Because these delays will vary in length, COMC is unable to provide an accurate timeline for when orders placed to Canada may be delivered once they enter the Canada Post mail system. If these delays create a delivery inconvenience, we recommend taking advantage of COMC’s Buy Now, Ship Later functionality. With this feature, customers are able to purchase items, or transfer them from Upper Deck’s ePack Service, and request shipment at a later date once postal delays have been resolved.
If you do not yet have a COMC account, sign up for free here.
In the meantime, we encourage you to visit www.canadapost.ca/update to read about the latest developments and sign up for email updates.
If you have any questions, we’re here to help! Contact our Customer Service at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-800-517-3540.

Previous Update from September 19th, 2018:
As you are likely aware, Canada Post services may experience a disruption as early as September 26 amid negotiations with the Canadian Union of Postal Workers. In the event of a work disruption, COMC and Upper Deck e-Pack shipments to Canada will experience delays. Shipments will be held at our Burnaby, BC office and will be promptly shipped when work resumes.
Orders already in the Canada Post system during a work disruption will remain in their system until Canada Post resumes operations. Please anticipate delays in delivery times for these orders. Should the work disruption occur, we strongly recommend our Canadian customers take advantage of COMC’s unique service which allows customers with a COMC account to buy over time and ship everything together in a single shipment when Canada Post resumes operations.
Canadian sellers: You can either drop your consignment submissions off at COMC Canada in Burnaby, BC or use alternative carriers such as UPS, FedEx, and Canpar. There will be no service delays for cards stored remotely in Canada purchased by non-Canadian residents
