    The 'binding' is separated at the top. I'll probably glue it together or something.

    One corner of the box is cracked; I'll glue later, but the same happened last year. It sucks that postal workers can't handle these with more care, those bastards!

    Would you feel the same way if the box had a picture of Sade on it and the section where her face is was dented or torn?

    Seems like the fault lies more with the shitty packing job by Front Gate rather than the USPS.

    Yeah; it's just a cardboard box thrown in a thin envelope. That's what happens when there isn't any cushion. I don't really give a shit anyway; our last two boxes are collecting dust.

    of course they will be in rough condition. didn't you guys see the pic of the dog on the main page and at the bottom of the box? I don't think i'd ever expect this dog to be careful with a package! I mean, it looks like he took pleasure in destroying your boxes.

    you paid for the box for pretty much every other item in your life. do you collect all of them? last i checked coachella was about the experience. if you need a souvenir box to remember the experience, i feel bad for you.

    Are you saying you don't want the box? I was going to give it to you, but if you don't want it, I'll keep it.

    It is pretty stupid of them to spend the money printed and assembling those boxes just to stick them in envelopes. If they wanted to save money on shipping, why didn't they just amend the souvenir packaging to be something flatter?
