Something Fishy ...

Posted by Dave Bull at 2:45 AM, February 16, 2012 [Permalink]

Here are a few items from my mailbox over the past couple of days:

I have not yet received print #18. The packages you send usually arrive 10 days to 14 days after my payment is made to Paypal. I put the payment through on January 24 but so far, the last print hasn't made it to my mailbox.
As of this date my 18th print has yet to find its way home-any ideas? I thought it would have found its way by now.
I have not yet received this print. Would you please check to see that it was sent?

One is an anomaly; two is a coincidence; three is a mob!

Something is going on, and given that these reports are coming from different countries, the finger points at the Japanese side. The batch was sent off on the 25th (or perhaps the 26th) of January. I made the post office run myself with the 80-odd packages all stacked up in cartons on the back of my bike, dropping them off at my local branch.

I've talked to the postal people this morning, and although these packages carry no tracking numbers (being 'small packets'), they have told me that they will begin an investigation.

And if any of the collectors have received the package, would you please let me know, so we can at least confirm that the entire bag full hasn't been 'lost' somewhere.

Sheesh ... that would be just what I need right now ...

Mine arrived in Edmonton a few days ago, so it's not a total loss.

... arrived in Edmonton

So at least we aren't dealing with an entire missing mailbag - that's a relief to hear! But Canada is consistently on the late end of deliveries usually, so this is just getting more and more curious ...

Update ... lots of 'got it' messages now coming in ...

I received Mystique #18 I think more than a week ago, a great print!
... the Hokusai print arrived at least a week ago. It's a winner!
I have received it, several days ago (it arrived Friday or Saturday last week, I think). I hope it turns up quickly for those who haven't received theirs yet. It's a beautiful print.

So it seems as though there is no 'emergency', and simply a few people have been on the unlucky side of the equation ...

Received mine over a week ago, up here in Wisconsin, apparently no delays or difficulties on the way.
