I need to make an announcement regarding the shipment of MACE #001.
The above picture is not your package. Except for the delivery above, every package was mailed according to the following specifications:
- Media Mail
- Extra sturdy cardboard envelope
- Sealed plastic bag
- Reinforced cardboard sheet
- Two bright red DO NOT BEND stickers
I value your support and this product. I hope the packaging reflects that.
A note about Media Mail.
Media mail is not the quickest delivery, but it is the most cost effective. It also does not help that I live in Alaska. From my understanding, the post office accumulates media mail packages until they have enough to to justify shipment. I am new to all of this, so I am learning these things for the first time. Otherwise, I would have communicated them ahead of time.
So what happened to your mail?
About 40 percent of you have already received and are enjoying (hopefully) your zine. Those packages must have caught shipment at just the right time. The rest have been held up waiting for shipment. I am happy to report that they finally landed in the Seattle WA Distribution Center yesterday and have departed from there today. I don't know how long it takes from Seattle to your door, but I do know some are already out for delivery. If you have lost your tracking number email, feel free to reach out and I will get it for you.
What about the package pictured above?
I had one backer who I thought had picked up his copy at a convention I attended but I was mistaken. To make up for my mistake, I opted to pay over double the rate and send it via priority shipping. In their rush to ship it, I guess they forgot to prioritize it.
So, I hope this clarifies at least a few things. I also hope you really enjoy this zine when it gets to you.
Also, MACE #002 needs some love. If this is going to be a quarterly publication, I need to know there is enough interest. Right now, I don't know if it will fund and could use your help getting the word out.
