    pick up from you, and you could ship in Flat Rate Boxes with dry ice?  There are dry ice makers ... dry ice makers.

    Pardon me if you have thought of this, but it seems like there are individual customers out here (me me me).

      Not sure it can be fed ex'd either but I'm not totally sure on that.

      I use insulated boxes, I send the tubs about half frozen and the jars of Party In A Jar very cold and include a gel ice in the box.  A perfectly sized cardboard box is the outer layer and we ship 2nd day fed ex.  There is a broker who gets us better fed ex rates than what I could walk in and get but I do have to go over the mountain and down into the valley to get it to fed ex.  

      Most of our shipping of orders is for local customers who move out of area or who ship to family in other states.  It hasn't been a big focus because of the logistics.  But I must be an old dog who DOES learn new tricks.  

      Thanks for the good thoughts.

        specialize in mailing?... you don't have to do it all, I'm sure.
