Here’s a pro tip from Half Letter Press on how not to ship about 45 lbs of our booklets to us from another country. This arrived in Chicago today; we’re not going to say who shipped it. Suffice it to say, the box that was used was ridiculously thin considering the weight and must have exploded in transit. DHL used about a roll of tape to reinforce the thing. Thankfully the booklets look to be in good shape, which is remarkable considering what this baby endured. The friendly DHL driver shared my incredulity at how this was packed. His words: “Could they have used a worse box?!”
