Finally, after much slitting of shrink wrap (note to self: next time, have replicators leave 200 CDs UNshrinkwrapped…), and signing and packaging of CDs, all pre-orders have been shipped off to my wonderful supporters and “Executive Producers”!
All that mailing costs money, but I recently discovered a cache (read: a messy, uncleaned drawer) of old stamps, so my “actual” CD mailing costs are effectively just for the bubble wrap packaging. Sweet!
The downside: since the stamps ranged in value from 1 cent to 87 cents, with a lot of 37, 34, 33 and 32 cents in there (and the actual postage costs are $1.56, $1.90, $2.24 or $2.75 for one, two, three or four CDs respectively), I had to spend a lot of time with a calculator. I can add, but a math savant I am not.
The upside: assembling the aforementioned wide-variety-of-values stamps to create the appropriate value turned out to be kinda fun, and resulted in some rather pretty stamp collages. Here a few of my favorites:
I’ve got lots of stamps left, so until they run out, if you order any CDs from me, you can be the proud owner of a lovely stamp collage, in addition to the fabulous CD. Just click here to place your order.
