If you are planning on going to Blogher 2011 this week The UPS Store has some great options to ship extra luggage home. The UPS Store did all of my business cards for Blogher and I will be using them to ship extra luggage home from San Diego.
When I went into our local The UPS Store to pick-up my totally awesome business cards for Blogher, I let the owner know to be expecting some packages for me next week. With The UPS Store being owned by a member of our local community they really put a lot of care into their customers. The owner was fantastic and told me he would call me when they come in.
If you are worried about not having shipping supplies while at the conference, don't worry. The UPS Store has all the supplies you need to ship. They will even personally help you wrap your items so everything will arrive safe and not broken.
You can even get special cards at The UPS Store for any new friends you might meet at the conference.
