Chris,
I assume that you had $1,000 insurance on each blank to recoup your losses didn't you?

I'm losing my faith in USPS. 3 day express shipment from Owosso, MI to Santa Rosa CA took two days to get to Grand Rapids, MI, and just showed up this AM, 5 days in shipment, in Pittsburg, PA.

FedEx here near Allentown PA is a nightmare, anything i get from mudhole that ships fedex is about 2 and a half weeks.. Around christmas my power wrapper was damaged twice by them.. Mjdhole worked with me on it and i settled for a unit that looks like it was used, paint worn off in spots, dinged up a bit, but atleast the pulleys werent bent, or blown out bearings like the first one..

Anything i get usps get to my area faster then expected and in great condition..

USPS has become very sloppy lately and I don’t know what is going on. For me, they were the best but lately I have been getting many more lost and boxes broken open than I have experienced in the past.
