Are you embroiled in a hotbed of higher education? When you are ordering your shirts, please be extra careful with University/College addresses!
Often our packages somehow make it into the hands of carrier pigeons, and they are not able to deliver to college addresses unless you are very explicit about them. There is something about Mail Rooms that just does not comprehend vagaries. Also, our shipping system is really picky and if your address is not specific enough, it may result in a delay of your order while we try to convince the program that your office/dorm/house exists.
Here are some tips to help us make sure your package ends up in the right hands (yours) and not back here at our warehouse, sad and lonely:
- Be sure to mention the school name in your address. If you go to Purdue University, say so. It does help.
- There should probably be at least one building name in your address. If it is going to a Mail Center, mention that. If it is going to your dorm, mention the name of the dorm. Got shirts going to your office? Give us the name of the building that houses your office.
- Tell us if any of those numbers you've listed are Box numbers or Room numbers.
- If you are confused, or unsure of the way your school does that whole mail thing, check the school's website. Usually that info is up there so your parents can send you cookies and things.
- If your school's website is not forthcoming with information (after all, they are only there to educate you, not anyone else), ask your RA or the residential life people. Usually they know what's going on with that sort of stuff.
You can ALWAYS put extra information in the Notes part of your order. We'll still get it and apply it as necessary to your order as we prepare it for its journey.
Here is an example:
Box 1007 Hinman Post Office
Lebanon & Wheelock Streets
Hanover, NH 03755
The more information we can get, the faster we can get you your stuff.
P.S. Darthmouth students: This is EXACTLY what your address is supposed to look like.
