Fulfillment shipping has begun 2024
Posted by mikeboozer

Gen Con has begun printing USPS orders.

When you get an acknowledgement that you order has shipped it means the label for shipping is printed.

 It will still take us a 2-3 business days to actually get it into the hands of the US postal service. It will take them 3-5 days to get it to you.

Remember that your packet must be signed for. 

Carriers vary on how this is implemented...your milage may vary.

If you're not home then the standard practice is to leave a note and try to re-deliver or have it at your local post office for pickup.

We are shipping from Indianapolis this year so it may get to you faster as we have previously shipped from the land of the Seahawks (Seattle/Tacoma) before!

USPS packets that are returned to us will be put in Will Call.

Make sure and tell the Will Call attendant that you have a USPS returned packet and the name on the packet.
Everything you ordered before the June 14 deadline will be in that packet.

Note:  you can go to your local post office and “pre-sign” for your badge and they will leave it in your mailbox.

Our first USPS mailings have left the building!

They are in the hands of the Post Office now.

Are printing labels and shipping being done in waves? Is there a date by which we should expect to see acknowledgement of shipping?

They are being done alphabetically.

Can't give you a date they will ship by as it will take as long as it takes which is usually a few weeks from the Ship to me date and it all depends on the Post Office plus how far you ae away from Indianapolis.

Are you saying they ship from Indy and NOT Seattle ?

Yes, I'm saying that.

Why am I paying for shipping when the post office delivers my mail at noon, I'm at work, and cannot sign for it?  The signature confirmation is unnecessary.  Yes, i know i can go to the post office to sign a waiver to but that defeats the purpose of paying for shipping when the post office is so far away.

Question: Does GenCon not allow for electronic signatures? I have an e-signature on file with the USPS and I was not able to e-sign for my package. Not a big deal, I can pick it up at the local post office, but I was curious if GenCon doesn’t allow e-sign.

Gen Con has no say one way or the other for what the Post office does. We send the packets with a signature required to make sure you have received the packet. What an individual post offices policy is is outside our control.

I don't know how inconvenient your post office is, but the purpose of shipping is to avoid standing in the Will-Call line for 1 or 2 hours.  As someone with early Thursday events who shows up Thursday morning, I don't have time for a line the length of the ICC.  Granted, my post office is a 10-minute round trip.  It just comes down to how your schedule looks and how much you value your time when deciding if shipping is worth it.

I don't know, why did you pay for shipping when the terms of the shipping were laid out before you chose it?
