Package theft is on the rise. Thieves follow the USPS, UPS, and FedEx drivers around and steal packages off porches everyday and the problem seems to increase around the holidays.
Stealing your package from Amazon will make you mad but it can be replaced. Thieves stealing your T-shirt quilt will make you mad also BUT your quilt cannot be replaced.
Here at the T Shirt Quilt Company and our Etsy sister store-EggMoneyQuilts-we ship our tshirt quilts with USPS. Signature confirmation costs $2.55 and means the mailman has to get a signature and cannot leave your quilt on the porch or at the door. While no shipping method is a 100% guaranteed adding this extra layer of security makes sense!
Your t-shirt quilt means a lot to you. It is a graduation gift with t-shirts from high school or college. The quilt can be a loved ones clothes with special memories that you want to hold close forever. Some quilts have clothes from baby to adult.
Yes we know it can be a hassle if no one is available to sign for the package. You can go on the USPS website and track your package and change the delivery date if you need to.
Can you opt out of the signature confirmation? Yes you can. In the many years we have been shipping t-shirt quilts we have had one request to leave the signature confirmation off. The client did not want to interact with her mailman. We explained why we add it but she made the decision to leave it off. Luckily the delivery was a success!
