SENDaBALLS are sent fully-inflated (yes, all blown up!) by the United States Postal Service® and delivered by the regular mail carrier. The balls are signed by hand (including your additional message) using a sharpie. Since the PANDEMIC, we have been sending all SENDaBALLs in clear bags, unless requested not to.
Balls generally ship the next business day. Since the PANDEMIC and the staffing issues at USPS, the window of arrival times can be sporatic. The FREE delivery option for the ball can take anywhere from 4 to 15 business days, which is First Class Mail® Parcel Service.
Address Label will be on the bag.

Do Not Believe USPS ``Expected Delivery`` Date
The EXPECTED DELIVERY DATE that USPS.com has listed on their tracking site is NOT generally the date which the ball will arrive. Because the balls need to be HAND SORTED they take longer than a First Class Letter. We have been doing this for 15 years and the balls take ``about a week`` to get there and sometimes more.
