Double boxing shipments save losses! 2 months 1 week ago #37

Game Hole Con one year I had about 60 transmutes I was bringing with me.

Boss asked me to fly to France the week before to teach a training class.

Any idea how much fun it is to fly to France with 60 transmutes in plastic grocery bags in your carry on and go through security 5 times each direction?

I know! :P

Hmm... it is under 5 hours for me to Carbondale. Kind of tempting. I have more than I want to mail right now.

That's what I do


Same here.

does anyone go the extra mile and duck tape the inside just incase?


I wonder if TD has ever gotten a transmute order that had "too much" tape?


i think i am guilty on this one...

26 hour drive.

I generally send the low tier transmutes via USPS and maybe 1 relic but anythign beyond that usually waits for an in person event

It's about 5.5-6 for us....sounds like a good excuse for a weekend trip to st louis after Covid :) ....though, by then, we'll have in person Cons, which we also drive to.

I have wheeled a suitcase full of nothing but transmutes into GHC’s transmute room. Saves on postage and vastly reduces the risk of loss in transit. But it looks like I’m stuck with mail for a while.


Tape jokes, I love em. Especially puns!


Oof. Would you believe me if I said I didn't even mean to make that pun? :silly:


I would, most people do not appreciate the sticky situation of accidental punning. I on the other hand appreciate the bind a pun could put one in. I also just am a terrible human being that loves puns.

No! Is this a thing or were you mad?

Do you ship relics in smaller box shipments or do you put them inside larger shipments?

FYI, if you would like to do a token transaction at TDHQ, you MUST make arrangements with us (Jeff) in advance. Do not just show with your tokens. This is true for all times, not just during a pandemic.

I'm not saying anyone has shown up w/out notice, I just want to be very, very clear about what is expected.
Have you looked it up in the TDb ?
Please post TDb corrections/suggestions in this thread .
If I write something in teal, it should not be taken seriously.

I'll generally place 1 relic transmute in a medium flat rate box when I am doing other transmutes and insure the whole thing for $400-500 in case anything gets lost.

If I am attending an in person convention I will hold off on sending in relics for up to about 6 weeks. If it's longer than that I'll usually send them in just to have things done.
