Holiday shipping deadline
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under sales specials 10 Dec 2008 11:56 PM

Don't forget, if you want your order shipped by our Standard shipping option within the U.S. to arrive before Christmas, tomorrow (Friday, December 12) is the deadline to get your order in! (UPDATE: our shipping folks have informed me that if you're shipping to a P.O. box, you'll want to select First Class or Priority Mail shipping rather than Standard.) After that, you'll have until Monday for USPS Priority Mail delivery and until next Friday for 2nd Day UPS. We'll post reminders for those deadlines as well.

If you need some gift suggestions, check out our handy Holiday Gift Guide with lots of ideas for every interest and budget!

Sure to last through years of comic conventions, farmer's markets, record stores, etc., all while broadcasting your excellent taste in comics and keeping pounds of paper and plastic out of landfills. Only $14.95 at Fantagraphics Bookstore & Gallery -- why not pick up a few for yourself and for gifts at our big 2nd Anniversary party & Beasts! exhibit opening this Saturday, December 13?

Mel Stringer

Some magazine out there could do a lot worse than hire a 21-year old Australian to become their staff portraitist. For what it's worth, I really like what she's doing.
