Frustration at its finest! Sticker update

So I made a thread about the new stickers and how we would tossing them in free with the shirts as a extra bonus, well Rick sent them to me a few weeks ago and we kept discussing why I didnt have them yet.

Last night I get home to find this in the mailbox...

Roughly $60 in stickers destroyed/missing or we just have one really excited member that works for USPS.

what does this mean for the shirt orders? Well there is no way I can get them in with the shipment, and it would take a week or two to get new stickers to me. Not to mention instead of $60 out of pocket it is now $120

Anyway I am sorry about the stickers and we will have to work something up at a later date. I am frustrated beyond belief.

just remember, the Government cant even send the mail properly and they want to run health care!!!

Note the 'We Care' package... ha absolutely crazy.

I am not really sure what the post office could do, not much sense in wasting time there.

They can damage your goods and not be responsible for it? That ain't right

That really sucks, WE CARE, thats a joke, I had a neighbor that worked at the post office and he told me once that anytime they felt like reading a magazine they would take one home and then put it back in the mail when they were done, and the poor guy that pays for the subscription gets his magazine after its at the newstand, they dont care.

This is the reason we Ship UPS! USPS WILL NOT cover anything missing or damaged. UPS will take care of you.

I hate USPS!

USPS will but you have to send it priority and insure it. Cost like 10 times more than sending a regular letter though.

Like Forest Gump said "**** Happens". Sucks, but it's not that big of a deal if we don't get any.

I know that UPS and Fed-Ex cover up to the first $100 if the product is damaged during shipment, without having insurance. Does USPS not do this? And how did I miss this T-shirt thread? I'd go in and raise hell if I were you. This sorry we ruined your shipment and now your out more money crap is for the birds, that's terrible customer service IMO.

You zach that totally sucks i was really looking forward to the sticker with my Tshirt, I would go and raise holy hell with the darn USPS i have had them do the same with stuff that i have received from them.

I hope that you will be able to get the stickers out to those that have ordered the Tshirts and Hoodies if not is there another way that i could possibly get a sticker for my truck?

Another, THAT SUCKS!! Especially cause you lost out on the money it spent to make them. I would have more members would be contributors to help make up for the loss. I look forward to the new stickers when the come available. Sorry Zach, this really bites!

You can always become a site supporter and get a couple decals.

That said, I picked up some more decals locally here and just shipped them expedited out to Zach. Hopefully they will be there in the next few days.

Yea, thats the big downer. The cost of the decals, shipping and all that. More have been bought and sent.

If he prints, uv's and die cuts and its cheap, then why not. Show him one of the decals and get him to quote. They certainly aren't cheap.

If we see a ranger with 40+ decals with a driver wearing a USPS outfit, take a picture and let us know

Gotta love a government run corporation that loses tons of money every day by doing exactly what they are supposed to do...not sure what I mean?

All the ads from local businesses and grocery stores are 3rd class mail IIRC, which they lose money on by delivering as normal...

Ya he does vinyl vehicle wraps ect. If you want me to get a quote, PM me the size of the stickers and a HQ jpeg or .tiff or.esp or what format you have. Im not even sure what the new stickers look like, haven't been paying attention, I still have some of the original ranger-forums stickers somewhere lol.
