Am I really almost half way there? In the first 12 days, so much has happened. Those of you receiving prints this week will receive them in my new rigid self-sealing mailers. On the inside sandwiched between two pieces of chip board with a Stonetrigger Press sticker on the front you will find a crystalclear brand glassine print holder. I am now printing out all my labels directly from Etsy via the USPS. We are growing up fast here at Stonetrigger Press; it is not really “we” unless you include Conrad and Homer who are not helpful. I am looking at other ways to streamline my mailing because I have 10-15 orders to send out each day before I start carving my blocks. I love packing up stuff so you will continue to see changes. Also feel free to make suggestions! I am strongly considering extending this to 90 days so I need to become the queen of efficiency.
Many people order a few times during the week. I do not want you to pay multiple shipping charges. I can do 1 of 2 things. You can email me prints that you want and I will put a “reserve” on Etsy for you. We can add to that “reserve” listing, then settle up at the end of the week or every two weeks. I can also hold your order and when you order more refund the shipping cost. It makes sense to just send the whole package priority, a whole pound of prints can fit. Until I figure out a better solution I think the reserve will work best.
Ideally I will ship the day after the order, but often time prints need to dry 3 days, then ship on the 4th day. I listed on Etsy that I would mail them 1-3 business days, but I just changed that to 3-5 days. Most likely I will still send them within 1-3 business days. I know I like to get the things I order immediately!
Your preview for tonight, is the title, “The Lizard King.”

I hope you do extend it. I am really enjoying this challenge of yours.
