    I tried searching for it but it does not recognize the number. The UPS MyChoice that you have may be the premium one ($40/month). I have the basic one. I keep hearing about all these issues with names and poor printing and I am beginning to worry about how mine will come. I was super excited to see my bf's face when he opened this for his christmas present...and now it looks like the surprised will be killed. The Packers didnt think this through very well. I do not understand why they refused to ship orders till after the 16th of December...knowing many people were giving these for Christmas. I am kinda bummed.

    I've been very surprised to see the trouble people are having with shipping issues, etc. - I received my share today, and it was as seamless as it gets. My brother in WI got his (ordered together with mine) on Monday.

    I hope all the issues get worked out without a bunch of hassle.

    Also...I don't know what people were expecting in terms of packaging but having bought in '97 and having no memory of anything at all special in terms of presentation from that sale, I was very impressed with what I found inside the envelope. I come from a family of artists/designers (and do a bit of graphic design on the side myself) and I loved it.

    That said, all I care about is the ownership of the team, so I'm easy to please I guess.

    Best of luck to all of you hoping to get yours in time for Christmas and still waiting. That's gotta suck. Remember that they were going to start the sale "around November 15" in the first place, but got hung up by some state regulations or something of that nature. I think they did their best to have it available for the holidays...and the volume of purchased shares probably surprised them a bit.

    You will need to get a matte and then frame it in a larger frame. Check this out from ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Green-Bay-P...=350513141460&ps=63&clkid=5070826804195019459 or have one cut at a Michael's or Hobby Lobby. Then just choose an off-the-rack frame that you like, and viola!

    Mine looks great, so don't worry until you see something wrong. It will probably be fine.

    I definitely think the volume surprised them. In 1997 I believe they sold around 120,000 shares over the entire offering. This time they sold 185,000 in two days. That is a lot of processing. Yes, I wish things had gone more smoothly and they had put my grandparents' names on the certficate rather than mine on both. But at the end of the day I own a part of the Packers and that is what matters to me. And I think that is what will matter to my grandparents. I wrapped the second stock certificate with my name so they can open it. And with their anniversary coming up my family is going to get it custom framed anyway. So I'll get a corrected certificate, get it framed and they will be happy.

    OMG, went on ebay and input Packers stock certificate, and you should see what people are charging for frames. I went to Walmart and spent a big 5 bucks on one. It's about all I had left to spend after paying for my share and Christmas presents for everybody else.

    Yes, I am glad I bought when I did. Both the frame and the mat that I had found earlier are $10 higher now than they were the first week of December.

    So I called today. They are aware if the issues. The guy said that you have to pay to send it. But they will refund for your shipping costs

    Packers website just confirmed that all P.O. Box shipments are being sent via U.S. Postal Service with no tracking capability and no guarantee for XMAS delivery ! I told that to Morrow & Co. all week long and they still claimed UPS was handing this with is illegal due to federal laws prohibiting private delivery companies to deliver to P.O. Boxes ! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr........ I want my $525.00 back !!

    And for the picture frame challenged: The available matt size is 9 x 12 (you can center the 8" between the 9" borders) and the 9 x 12 matt accommodates a 12 x 16 frame ! And try to use a 12 x 16 frame with a wide 2 inch border which will match the 2 inch border on the 9 x 12 matt ! That is what they are selling on Amazon for $55.00. The matt can be purchased at the local AC Moore, Michael's or any craft store for between $3.50 to $5.00 in various shades of green. If you want a green frame to match, try Ebay !

    So much for paying $25 for 2-day shipping. I know they said some werent going to be shipped until friday the 23rd for arrival on the 24th...but UPS where I live does not do deliveries on Saturdays. This is truly ruining Christmas.

    I am curious as to why, since I ordered around 8:10 am on December 6, my certificate wasn't printed until December 14. It seems like those 8 days could have been used to stay ahead of the rush as best they could. Also no idea why they would make the decision that no certificates could be delivered before December 16 (although I know some were.)
