. These may need about 6 years to flatten.
paper is unforgiving
I would hate to try to unfurl these after people left them in their tubes for a year.....

Overall, I really like the thickness and quality of the paper. The cool glittery effect is really nice.

I am still waiting as well. Usps is pretty drymounted right now. M Spoke with my local and they said there are 15+ tractor trailers of packages just sitting out of the distribution site in Rochester NY which is where all my deliveries get routed through. I have some things that have just sat for 10 days and some that get to the destination in normal time. Its crazy

I was pleasantly surprised how well the line art silver and blue editions looked in person. Pics definitely mute the effect, he did really well with the colors too. Maybe some over-exuberance being my first Pollocks, but these look great.

I got a shipping update email from BNG a couple days ago saying they are aware and monitoring the delayed Neo situation. A batch of over 50 tubes with the Mars Edition plus something else are MIA and they will soon escalate the situation with USPS if the tubes don't show up. They may have to issue replacements eventually.

I think its happening all across the board. I have packages that keep getting delayed and delayed with no tracking updating, that I have shipped as well as coming in.

Here is my guess. The massive increase in customers shipping items this year as well as the USPS commitment to shipping the vaccine and dealing with covid and covid related sicknesses within the company, that this will one helluva crazy difficult year for them. Not to mention the dismantling of sorting machines before the election didn't help.

So keep your anxiety low by preparing yourself for long delays and not getting your stuff before Christmas. Talking to everyone here.

Where is the USPS in terms of vaccination priority?

Kidding, they won't submit themselves to the microchipping.

Kidding x 2.

I've resorted to using Fedex for family gifts and any other tubes I need to send to see if it's any better.
