Is it safe to mail my t-shirts?

 We have received  messages from clients concerned about mailing their shirts.  T shirts hold a lot of memories and cannot be replaced. I understand their concern with all the news of packages being stolen off porches and mail fraud. We suggest you send your shirts USPS Priority mail or UPS 2 day delivery. Both ways can be tracked and arrive quickly.

For many years we have used USPS, UPS, and FedEx and a box has never been lost. The process has become a lot more secure with GPS tracking of packages.

We cannot stop theft after packages are delivered but we can minimize the risk! I interact with my mail lady most every day. The UPS guy delivers fabric to our shop 5 days a week (I love him!). We also get an alert when a package is scheduled to be delivered.

Your t-shirt quilt is mailed home by USPS Priority Mail. Signature confirmation is added that requires someone to sign for your t shirt quilt. Your package is not left on the porch or at the door. Your T Shirt quilt is shipped the next business day after we receive payment so you can judge when your box should arrive. Priority mail usually takes 2-3 days.

We will send you the tracking number by email so you know when your package is out for delivery. If  you need to change the delivery date you go to and you can change the date or have the post office hold your package.

We do have a couple recommendations for sending your shirts. Make sure the order form with your name and address is in the box. Securely tape your box.

Use the correct size box. If you over stuff your box it can split open and shirts could fall out. If you use a box that is way too big it can get crushed and shirts can fall out.

We look forward to working with you on your quilt!
