#candymail Updates/Changes/New Stuff

As exciting as Christmas season was, with it being #candymail's first major holiday, it was also extremely stressful. For those of you who have not heard already...I had to replace two entire batches of #candymail that was lost/stolen by the post office. As horribly frustrating and disappointing as that situation was it was an excellent learning experience. 

Due to the pricing of #candymail and the base cost of postage included, there were not tracking numbers on each piece. However, since I have had to replace so many around Christmas time I have started researching the most cost efficient way to provide tracking information on the mail. One of the things I love most about #candymail is that it is affordable. It is my goal to continue offering it at the same price with the option for an upgrade/additional charge for tracking information.

I am super excited to offer Valentine's Day Cards. The Valentine's Day cards will include:
-A 2.2"x3.2" Candymail card (Valentine Theme)
-ONE piece of candy
-ONE sticker 
-ONE temporary tattoo
-Hand lettered name on the envelope 
-Back of the card will be blank for your child to sign (or I can sign their name)


What does that mean? That means these will be done for class parties. Each card will $1.75 a piece (so 20 cards will be $35.00) and will only be available for pick up. THESE WILL NOT BE MAILED. If you are not in the local area I can check on pricing of mailing a back of these to you.

Also available are Valentine's themed #candymail. These will just be pink color traditional #candymail cards with a valentines cartoon of choice on the front. I can turn any theme into a Valentine's cartoon. So order as usual...just note that it is a Valentine's theme. The traditional and Valentine's #candymail will be offered at $5.00 per child/individual.

Each #candymail Includes the following:
-A 5x7 Custom drawn envelope 
-A 5x7 #candymail card complete with a short note from you
-FOUR pieces of candy (no chocolate/jaw breakers/hard round candy)
-Mailed standard USPS (tracking will be offered as an upgrade soon)

I also want to sincerely thank each and every one of you for your support in helping me get so close to my goal. I am still amazed that in three short months I was able to get #candymail in 46 of the 50 states. What amazes me more is how supportive everyone has been. You guys ROCK!

Here's to a great 2016....and new goals! (and maybe knocking out those last four states!)
