Hi Everyone,

A few listers (you know who you are) have asked me about my so called logo print case and wondered what it looked like. I guess a lot of people have never seen one before since these things are somewhat of a collectors item now. So I got this bright idea to showcase it while doing a little step by step (since I'm doing it anyways) for preparing to ship of a case to nationals.

Step 1. Find an empty case, I was very very very fortunate to have been gifted this case.
Step 2. Make sure to fill it w/ some (idealy 4) prints and if your lucky, it's the ones that have the PPA seals on the back. Also, dont forget to include the registration form as showed here in the nifty mesh pocket.

Note: This case is a 20x24 thus I need to put a lot of filler material in the sides. Also, I know about the deal with the plastic! Maybe next year!

Step 3. Make sure to zip the case completely. No locks, the zippers on these cases are pretty good and wont open on their own. Also, notice that these cases dont have those pesky straps.

Step 4. Insert the shipping label in the shipping label window. Dont forget to secure the velcro.

And there it is! Done! Gosh seems like the case is bigger than me! Must be an asian thing!

Very cool Marc. I have slight case envy. Have you (or anyone else) had a problem with the shipping label window getting gunky from UPS labels being put over it? I just got mine back from SEPPA and they stuck the label to the clear window instead of putting it in the window and its all gunky from the adhesive. Anyone know how to get the "adhesive gunk" off without ruining the window?

I have the same case that Mark has and yes I have had problems with the labels being put on the outside of the window. I have cleaned it several times just to have it again.

For some reason UPS does not like putting thier shipping labels in the window so they just put it right over it.

Windex and a lot of rubbing usually cleans it off.

Hi Vallerie,

I just cleaned mines today. I used regular rubbing alcohol. Also, I'm sure goof off will get the job done.

Hey, I noticed that you live in Fredericksburg. My marketing mentor Monica Sigmon's from there. I think her studio is in the building they call the teachery?
