My son and I will be flying to Indy next year (13 hour drive) and I plan on signing us up for the build your own foam weapon and shield events. I'm sure they will be too big to fly them home along with all the game purchases. What are my options for shipping purchases home? 

I know they have a shipping office in the convention center, but the line was VERY long last year and I'm hoping to not waste half the last day of the convention trying to ship items home.

Does anyone know of any other options? Is there a shipping office at the airport anywhere? 

Thanks for any help you can provide!

There's a FedEx over at the JW Marriott - the lines might be shorter there?

There is also one in The Westin.

There is a UPS store on W Market Street, two blocks north of the convention center. They aren't open on Sunday so you'd have to be able to ship them out on Saturday afternoon.

As someone who ships stuff home from the con regularly, if you can ship /before/ the last day do so--you'll save yourself a lot of time!  Also look at shipping in the morning (not Sunday morning), as lines will almost certainly be shorter with everyone recovering from the night before.  :p
