Slip it, Ship it! Canada Post shipping locations use a tool just like this – an item with two slots and a bunch lines and numbers on it. They drop it through the slot, and check the length. People commonly refer to it as the Slot of Doom. Why? When they get to the post office and it doesn’t fit – you’re doomed! Either pay the extra $12 for parcel shipping to get rid of it now, or drive all the way back home, repackage it, and come back tomorrow to face the dreaded slot of doom a second time. That, or it gets mailed back to you, with those stamps crossed out and now it’ll never make it to its destination on time.
Now you can have your own! No more surprises at the post office, no more returned mail and wasted postage money, and lots of saved time. It practically pays for itself! Made of light and strong 6061 aircraft-grade aluminum metal, anodized to a variety of colours.
CNC cut to sniper-accurate measurements. Guarantee that it will pass the requirements.
For Standard mail drop width first into the slot, and ensure length fits between left edge and notches.
For Oversize mail, drop width first into the oversize slot, and ensure it fits within the entire length of the SlipShip tool.
The tool itself is shipped via letter post. Which speaks to how precise the CNC cutting is – it is exactly the maximum length of the oversize limit.
Made of Metal – unlike plastic, CNC’d 6061 aluminum is solid and can take much more punishment. Let alone 3D printed plastic which is bendy, imprecise, and prone to snapping. Quality materials that you can depend on when it matters most.
Comes with simple, easy to follow table by weight, size, country, corresponding postage prices and recommended stamp combinations.
Use this to save your time – it’s much easier than looking up Canada Post’s confusing website and doing math each time you want to ship something.
For individuals and businesses that ship via Canada Letter Post – the classic “slap a stamp on there and throw it into the big red mailbox” style of shipping.
This is the exact tool that we use here at Omniventions. We’ve shipped out tens of thousands of packages via letter post. Letter Post is our specialty!
