We've been shipping out Crisscross orders for a few weeks now. As many of you know by now, for most of those orders, we've opted to ship via USPS Flat Rate. This accomplishes a few things; obviously a flat rate which tends to be considerably cheaper than variable UPS rates, quicker shipping since there is no calculation on our part which in turn takes time and typically fast delivery times (USPS Priority is usually a day or more faster than ground UPS and includes Saturdays).
What we'd like to know from our customers is how those shipments are faring. We're guessing that it's going well since we've had no real comments or emails on the subject. Our only real concern is the condition of these packages when they arrive. The Flat Rate boxes are nice, but not terribly robust. That said, we pack them well and we typically do some additional taping to beef them up a bit. Furthermore, the Crisscross itself is packed in a good quality box within the shipping box. Finally, it's not exactly petit fours we're shipping here, cast iron tends to be pretty tough!
A short comment left below would be appreciated. Again, we can only assume that these are working out pretty well. One thing we don't need to verify, we know our customers appreciate cheaper shipping!
