  • First international µRuler has arrived

    Posted on November 5th, 2013 EEVblog 16 comments

    The first mailing house envelope has arrived, in Sweeden of all places, and then Singapore:


    No Australia on the return address, and they said they would print a barcode but didn’t. Perhaps that delayed the delivery?

      Hi Dave,

      You might want to blank out the address.
      Mark.

        He posted that image online himself, so I presume he’s not fussed.

      The barcode is there – it is hard to see as they use special UV fluorescent ink – but it is the orange marks near the bottom edge. Not sure if there is an international standard for the barcode though…

        I presume that was printed by the post office and not the mailing house because it’s not in the same black ink. The mailing house bar code are usually just above the address.

          Pozzibly… but they wouldn’t get the benefit of the best bulk mailing rates if they didn’t print the barcode.

      The barcode system in Ireland is looks much the same. When mine arrives I’ll check if it is the same or if the local post office printed their own as well. I have seen envelopes from overseas with stickers over the bar code and a new local one (?) printed.

        No rulers here so far, although I’m in Sweden. Seems to artive randomly. Anyone else on Sweden that hasn’t got ttheir rulers yet?

          Typos due to stupid phone…

    • Ulf

      Oh dear oh dear. What a saga.
      Is that the first time they sent international mail? Return address without country? Come on.

      Anyway, can’t wait for mine to arrive.

      Hi, Dave! Hi, everybody!
      How can I purchase such a fantastic piece of measurement equipment?
      Couldn’t find that anywhere. Thanks!

      Hi. Anyone in Sweden that ordered more rulers than they need and be willing to sell one to a poor soul that missed the kickstarter?
