On Tuesday, July 26th I shipped off my Cooper River Bridge Run entry down to Mt Pleasant addressed to the Copper River Bridge Run Store/Office. The deadline is August 8th, but I went ahead and made sure I got all my ducks in a row so I did not have any unwanted stress by the time August 8th rolled around.
Hopefully I've put myself in a better position this year by adding the lettering. I went ahead and added the lettering and had my entire design printed on a 1/2 in thick foam board - Fearful that the image I took with my point and shoot wasn't that great of quality, I made sure to get finished way ahead of time so that I would be able to re-order if need. Bannerexpress.net is based in the west coast and regular UPS ground shipping took about 5 business days. Luckily I was happy with the result! Slapped my entry form on the back of it and packed it up in the same box it came in.
