Drop-offs

I will be doing drop-offs for Lakewood and the rest of Cuyahoga County again this year. Houses and Duplexes only for porch drops. Lakewood drop-offs are typically the next day or two, Cuyahoga drop-offs will be processed in batches, I will communicate with you via email on when you expect your drop-off (for example, I'm going to wait and do bunch of East Side drop-offs all on the same day). Lakewood, your packages will automatically be dropped off, unless you're in an apartment building (please see below for pick-up code), elsewhere in Cuyahoga, USE CODE: DROP21 at check-out. Any questions, just reach out.

Holiday 2020

USPS First Class

& Priority Mail Shipping

as of 1/7/2021, there are still large shipping delays thru USPS. 

Over the holidays about 90% of the packages that I ship out aren't getting scanned in at regular intervals at the post office. Some get the initial check-in scan, but no other scans along the way. Others get no check in scan, and suddenly arrive at their destination. Even local-to-Cleveland shipments are experiencing extreme delays. All shops and makers nationwide are experiencing the same issues, and the postal service isn't functioning as it should.

I am compassionate to your concern about your packages being delivered. I apologize for not being able to offer more insight into the specifics of why your label hasn't been scanned in or tracked at all, but I only know as much as the information that is being provided by the local and national news. I included some links below with detailed information. Information on how to file an insurance claim with the USPS is at the bottom of the page.
