Good morning ladies!
I have a schedule of today's events for you - and some interesting news!
US ShippingWaltzingmouse stamps is excited to launch a trial today - we are going to attempt US based shipping! Up until now, all of our stamps have shipped from us here in Northern Ireland - today we will have a bundle of the new sets available to ship directly from USA. Yep, folks purchasing only the USA bundle can expect their orders to ship to them from our location in USA.
Folks who need only one or two sets will of course be able to purchase as normal, all of the sets will be available singly as normal, and will ship from our UK location, as normal. If you think you might be interested in a bundle, read on -
Here's how we see it working for the trial:
At 7:15pm today the store will reopen. One of the products for sale will be called November release bundle - USA. It will include the entire November stamp release. Folks living in USA or Canada, who wish to purchase the entire release, and avail of the much faster shipping time, can purchase the November release bundle - and we will ship it out from our location in USA.
Since this is the inaugural trial, I will be pricing the November release bundle - USA with a little discount, which will mean that you will be getting one of the mini sets for free!
And since we don't want any of our friends in the rest of the world to miss out there will be a November release bundle - UK at the same great price. This bundle will of course ship from us here in UK as normal.
Both bundles are over our £50 shipping threshold and so folks ordering these will pay no shipping!
There are a limited number of both bundles so once they are gone, they are gone!
Our plan for shipping
Our goal is to eventually be in a position to ship all sets from within the USA, so that in theory, a person resident in either USA or Canada could order one item of their choice and have it shipped out to them from our USA location.
This trial allows us to test our systems to see if we have got the basics right. We realize that not everyone needs the entire release, and folks in USA or Canada ordering one or two sets will of course receive their goodies in the normal way.
If this trial is successful, we will begin to introduce more sets to our US base.
In celebration of our shipping trial I am also going to pick one commenter from this post to win the entire November release - so leave a comment telling me what your favourite set is so far from this release, which is slightly not fair of me, since the set the gals are showing later today (and which you haven't seen!) is such a good one!! Can't wait!!
