Thankful Thursday: September 23, 2010

Well, this week saw our shippers processing a record amount of mail in just one week: 26,274 cards! Yes 26,274!! The avalanche has truly begun! Many many thanks to all who are stamping the backs of their cards, and learning "the tuck" so well - you're making our job SO much more manageable.

We'll repeat this announcement about the Thankful Thursday report for those who missed last week's report and request:
  • This list will be just the names and hometowns, instead of including our normal comments. That all takes up a ton of time, and when we've got 40 boxes in a pile in front of us, and 40 reports to write, anything we can do to shave a little time off so we can spend it sorting and packing is a huge help!
  • We're trying to keep up with emailing you to let you know your cards arrived, but sometimes we're not able to get to it right away. Sometimes we miss a few when there are this many! Please be patient, and check in on Thursdays to see what's been sent in before emailing your shipper with an urgent request to confirm that they arrived. Emails that come in asking for info that will be here on the blog takes away from the hours we need to take care of the mail :)
  • On some days, our shippers are resorting to sending a 'group' email to everyone sending in cards that day - answering a few questions for those asking things, but bccing the whole group of cardmakers on one email. It saves time, and also gets word to you that your cards arrived, and helps get out answers as quick as we can.
And one additional plea - if you don't get an email when you think you should have, please don't send emails and facebook messages about it til after the following Thankful Thursday report is out. We get tons of email every day, and if we can cut down on a little of that with just a little patience to wait til Thursday, we can keep up better with things like sorting all that mail. Thanks!
