It's that time of the year again and we have already placed close to 3,000 badges in the mail. We would love to hear from you when it arrives, so here is your thread to post and brag about it!

We ask that you please refrain from posting pictures of your badge on our forums or elsewhere.

Please read the Your Badge is in the Mail! thread for information on which badges were sent out. We ship all badges First-Class Mail via USPS, which according to their website is delivered “within 3 days in most cases”. If you do not receive your badge after one week, please contact the Registration Team at registration@acen.org. They will be more than happy to look into what went wrong and find resolution for you.

Enjoy!

My girlfriend's was in our mailbox today when we got home from work, woo! Which means mine was probably attempted delivery today at our old address, and already likely making its way back so it can be sent to the corrected address. -_- But given how fast that was, it makes me a lot less worried that mine will show up in time. =)

I wish she hadn't been in a rush to an appointment, I wanted her to open it so I could see the badge art. XD

Hi magishine,

Once we drop all of the badges at the post office, they are in their hands and in their time frame. It may take the post office some time to sort all of the mail (especially when we show up with 1,000+ envelopes at a time). If you have not received your badge after 1 week of your announced tier mailing, please contact us at registration@acen.org.
