    No, that was the year of the thumb, but a scrapped Miko ornament from 2007 was used for the original set.

    Shouldn't that be Year of the Thumb?

    Or would allcaps make for a better presentation of what a watershed event it was?

    Well you know where my vote lies. I've been on both the consumer and creator side of things and found them to be *at best* more trouble than they were worth. I did better going with a local vendor and shipping by hand, although I doubt I was dealing with anywhere near the same volume as you do.

    I gave the recipient the option, and he said that he'd rather keep a great idea with sub-par execution instead of tasking me with finding a replacement.

    I think everyone involved recognizes that it is CafePress that is at fault here and not you. The apology is appreciated all the same though!

    Seconded! It reflects well on you that you care even about the silly seasonal merch.

    Well, my calendar arrived. It's great, as expected but...in spite of the big "DO NOT BEND" sticker on it, the mailman did bend it until he could put it in the mailbox. You can even see the shoe prints where he stepped on it to make it bend sufficiently. The calendar did suffer less than I expected but it still suffered and that sucks.

    File a complaint with the Post Office. Show them the packaging to help make the point that they egregiously failed to follow the instructions.

    I feel extremely sorry for you, having your beautiful calendar bent like that, but that being said, the fact that your mail carrier so adamantly wanted to violate the "do not bend" rule that they stepped on it with their shoe is kinda funny in a dark sense.

    Thanks for the sympathy. I do plan on complaining but I am not sure which mail carrier was responsible, there's no sticker on the package. But I'll find out.

    I think mine was straight USPS.

    Thanks, but mine was shipped to Germany, so it should be another one. (That probably gives them the excuse since "Do not bend" is English and their employees are not obligated to understand English).

    My calendar was shipped within Germany by DHL.

    My calendar was shipped to Germany too, and I put my hands on it right today. This time unbent (last year it had been though).

    Thanks - sadly my three year old sons tore off all the stickers and then someone emptied the trash cans. So I have no more proof of who delivered it.

    Just a heads up: the holiday ornaments and the digital calendars are going off sale tomorrow, so if you wanted either one, now's the last chance to get them.

    The digital calendars might be back next year if I do another one (I never know for sure until we get there), the ornaments are definitely going to be gone for good.

    Pre-order the printed calendar from Ookoodook or the digital edition from Gumroad. Get the ornament and t-shirts from CafePress.

    Thanks for the reminder, Giant! Just bought the calendars, as I have been meaning to...
    When in doubt, assume you rolled a natural one.
