Badge Mailout

The Badge Mailout allows attendees to choose to have their convention badges (with lanyards) to be mailed out to them before the con, allowing them to skip the lineups, and enter the con directly.

To take advantage of the Mailout, just select the appropriate Badge Mailout fee ($15 for 1-10 badges and $25 for 11+ badges) when you purchase your Anime North 2024 admissions, and provide the requested mailing information.

Deadline for requesting the Badge Mailout is April 19, 2024. This is also the deadline for requesting a refund of an order using the Badge Mailout.

  1. Badges and lanyards will be shipped by Canada Post regular mail. It is the purchaser's responsibility to provide a full, valid, mailing address, including postal code and apartment number (if any).
  2. Only the badges in the order that includes the Badge Mailout Fee will be mailed out. If you purchase additional Anime North badges later, they will NOT be automatically added to your existing Mailout.
  3. Badges and lanyards will be mailed out approx. 3 weeks before the convention. Purchasers will be notified by email when they are shipped. Once mailed, they can not longer be picked up at the Registration Desk.
  4. Deadline for asking for refunds of badges to be mailed out is April 19, 2024. After that date, they are non-refundable.
  5. If the badges are returned to Anime North due to an incorrect address, the purchaser will be allowed to pick them up at the Registration Desk. Anime North will not refund the mailing fee.
  6. Any TTC (Subway/Bus) passes purchased in the order will also be mailed out with the badges. Pre-ordered T-Shirts or Lapel Pins will still be picked up at the Merchandise Desk at the con.
