If anyone has ANY questions about information for shipping and what special requirements may be needed to get banner to next person in time, PLEASE contact me. Everyone should have ALL shipping information for next banner tour stop in their possesion at this time. Names, addresses, phone numbers.
Remember that the banner is 24 inches long when rolled up. I bought it a hard tube to keep it safe. You will need special pacakaging for this sized package. I shipped DHL and they had small tube packaging that was perfect for the size.
I would not bring the hard tube protector to the concert. The top and bottom could too easily fall off and it is durable enough to withstand going to concert. Fairly heavy duty vinyl.
I feel it is most exciting if you have good seats to wait to let Melinda first see it in the audience when she is doing her Supremes number with Kiki. If I could store the smile she made when she first saw it then, I would be a very lucky person. But do what you feel is right. Get a nice photo of her with the banner. Have her sign it again if you can. Just make sure it is done in SHARPIE or it could smear.
