    My Arcade Fire didn't ship with my August Box. Is it shipping separately?

    So seven records in the regular box does this:

    Notice how the National is bowed in the box, hoping it was not hot enough to make it a warp:

    @PaulyB can we get fulfillment to get Saddle Creek to stop doing this? If it had gone further, there would have been crushed corners. I'll pm you if the National is warped.

    Welp... it was bound to happen eventually.

    My shipment got bent in one corner/side. It was just the RotM, thankfully the Digable Planets got delayed or else it would have suffered too.

    That's bad. I wonder if they had to sit on it to get it closed.

    Hey guys! Once again, if you have a damaged shipment, shoot an email over to info@vinylmeplease.com, and we will get things squared away for you (looking at you @angryalan ). :) @lee newman Let me know if any of those records were damaged, and I will reach out to our Fulfillment center and say "Nah dawg, you don't ship that many records in a mailer that size. Yuh dun goofed".

    Package shipped on the 4th. Was supposed to arrive Saturday via FedEx (even though it usually goes to the local P.O. first). The last update is that it was "in transit" on Saturday and now there's a pending delivery date. I hope it somehow didn't get lost somewhere. It's 10 days today since it shipped.

    In other news, I got the Hot Chip album from England today and it shipped last Wednesday.

    Shipped on the 8th and arrived today the 15th - fastest shipping ever on this end. Just back from holidays so this was a mist welcome unexpected surprise. It would also appear not to have done its usual mini tour of Germany. :D

    Thanks @PaulyB, I'm not looking for replacements as the records themselves all play fine. Just some feedback as I know ya want everyone to have real good looking albums.

    Well, this sucks, @PaulyB im assuming no replacements for MOF?

    Told my wife at lunch today, I hoped my package makes it safe today, cuz, MOF.

    MOF is the only one damaged, tho, so I guess it was damaged before it was packed.

    Damn :/ Yeah no we don't have any replacement copies of that. How is the record itself? Was that damaged? Either way, shoot an email over to info@ and we will get something worked out!
