Long time no see.. :D
What happened during the last weeks, besides from testing, packing and shipping sticks :)
We got managed to build some tools which will help us and optimize our processes!
- We are now able to automatically read the tracking-no from the PDFs generated by DHL. And feed them back into Tindie's portal.
- Invoices and DHL stickers are now printed automatically.
- I build a small tool which uses OCR to get all the "old" tracking no's from our scanned DHL-invoices and send them via email to you!
Due to another business trip I am planning the next batches and trying to close the shop only a few days!
What does not change? DHL has massive problems.. Tracking is not working properly.. Events are rarely popping up.. Really annoying! Please be patient. Luckily we can track now! ;)

Got many many new and much better envelopes today! The night can start.. Printing, packing and glueing all night long..

The guy living in my old flat contacted me.. He received another big trash-can full of destroyed and partially empty envelopes. Seems like that nearly half of the shipped parcels (from two shipping waves) were included..
Started talking to my local post office once the first of you received an envelope in really bad condition! Finally, they gave me some coupons and a special offer to add tracking to international shipments! At least for the EU, let's see how far we can get..
Still re-ordering all the envelopes, tracking back to the original orders and testing+repacking those things..

God damn post.. Today I received plenty of destroyed and empty envelopes back!
Some of you guys already mentioned that you received them in nearly the same condition.. Most of the are already re-shipped!
I have to sort those envelopes, test the remaining devices again and see where we get and how fast we can re-pack them!
