    Got a note from the post office today to go pick up a registered "letter". Is this normal? Letters go through a fricking masher in processing, and I paid $2 extra for registered at shoptemp which I assumed was with the box...I can't afford to send this thing back to China if it's broken...now I have to wait until Monday, pissed off and curious as to it's condition...

    From the ShopTemp shipping page
    I imagine it's by Airmail Small Packets. It's at the post office as you need to sign for it. If it has been send without the packaging, take a photo of the package before you open it.

    I gather the box isn't that big, so to the person who did the card it could be as a letter.

    I really really hope so, because this little card says registered letter...I've been anticipating this thing for a while now and would be heart broken if it was smashed lol...

    I convinced my mom to go pick it up for me tomorrow, since I work and redelivery wouldn't happen until monday...so I suppose I'll report back and lett yall know if it was a happy tale or one filled with heartbreak

    I dont think It'll be damaged. I've seen a lot of small items shipped through letter sized envelopes and they've all come out fine for me.

    It arrived just fine, and works great! I was silly for worrying, but the stupid USPS designation for this being a "letter" threw me off. It actually came in the original packaging, which was then placed inside a type of a manila mailing envelope. The envelope is probably why it was designated as a letter.

    Anyways, just wanted to say for any future people wondering about the same thing, don't worry! ShopTemp got this thing to me in perfect shape! [​IMG]

    I shipped out an M3 Real in an envelope protected by nothing but a piece of notebook paper wrapped around it and it arrived just fine.

    Your package will be just fine.

    I'm not sure that's something I would be telling people.
