How will the Collectors books be packaged and shipped?

Postby Camelon75 » Tue Jul 17, 2007 9:12 pm

Just placed my order for the collectors series and was wondering how the books will be shipped.

If in a padded envelope turn to 17

In some kind of card board wrapping turn to 66

or Some other clever fashion turn to 178

17 - mnnn not the best choice hardbacks in a soft package bashed about in transit

66 - getting better should provide protection for the corners if its oversized like amazon

178 - explain further please, I always prefer wrapped in bubble wrap and then in a cardboard wrapping but this of course costs more.

cheers :)

I hope page 69: delivered to your door on a velvet pillow with golden tassles by a noodnik in tasteful attire! :lol:

Just a quick question, from someone who can’t wait for the new books. :wink:

Will we receive “Flight from the Dark” on the 31st, or is that the date the book will be despatched?

And just how many copies have been sent out? How has the shipping been affected by the postal strike?

Padded Envelope for me, yesterday.
Very poor package, not enough.
My book has the corners angled and the side is lighly dented. That's not a good service. They should have known that and used 66 or 178 because this is how a hardbook is rightly shipped.

Hmmm... Having paid £4 for delivery I would be dissatisfied if that happened to me. It doesn't help that a postman attempting to slam the thing through a letterbox (as they have an annoying habit of doing with padded envelopes) might also damage it.
