There is no refund for mailing. We provide a booth at con called the Service Desk where you go with no line to receive a reprint. The mailing fee is partially to pay for mailing and partially to pay for the upgraded badge type (fancier), and partially you securing that you do not have to wait in line. We can't do anything about the USPS failures but we will be remailing some of those badges, but we can make sure you have no line at con :) and still get your awesome badge :)

You said that the final shipping for badges was Saturday I believe? Are their tracking numbers for the packages? If so wouldn't we have gotten something like that so we can be assured that we get our badges? The USPS has a tracking/confirming system as we all know and I was just wondering if there are tracking numbers that could've gotten sent with them so we can see where they are? I'm starting to get extremely nervous... I really dont like the USPS their customer service is deplorable at best and so it'd be a bit more comforting if there were tracking numbers attached to the badges so that they could be located and such. maybe even give an estimate on when they'll be here.

it'd be a good idea, plus its neat to see where the packages go threw to get to you. Especially if its a con-goer in another state.

You have to keep in mind how difficult it is to even mail 6000 badges, let alone get tracking numbers for them, which cost an extra 60 cents a piece. Then you have to mail every single person with their tracking number, which would require keeping track of who's number is who, and you'd have to charge at least a dollar more for the extra effort that is required and to cover the cost.

I have dealt with mass mailing and tracking numbers actually makes things worse because then you run into possibly emailing the wrong person and them getting upset that way. Unfortunately the only logical, yet annoying, thing to do is trust USPS will get as many (hopefully most!) of the badges to the correct recipients in a timely manner.

If there is an extra cost for the tracking code then it would not be something we will do without raising the mailing price. Thank you Harley for letting me know about that.

The last of groups is mailed and should be arriving soon. If you don't get it by May 1st please contact us.

Have you emailed us about it not arriving? We are now contacting people who've contacted us in the past few days about solving the mailing issue. It looks like the USPS didn't want to deliver some mail.

Waiting until Monday then I think I will ask, just because I never have a constant mail person and they all come at different times from 9 in the morning to 7 at night

I don't think it's shutting down, I think it's a case of a lot of mail that got shuffled off to some point.

I would like to ask what I should do if the mailing have no come yet, and also whether it is really May20-22 that the acen is happening. Because I have been going for over 5 years now and it was always around the first or second week of May.
