Turn-Around Time as of November

Hey all!!  I just wanted to throw out a big warning.  Turn-around time is currently sitting around 3 weeks.

 

There are a couple etsy resellers that have come to the conclusion that I'm an ideal producer for their redistribution business, where they buy $6 cutters from me and resell them for $14.  They've also realized that November and December are huge demand months and as a result, have each placed multi-thousand dollar orders from me in the last two weeks.

 

I'm hardly in a position to turn down an offer from someone who wants to throw more than a thousand dollars at me, even though I think what they're doing is unethical and a considerable inconvenience to me and to the customers who have found me directly, rather than have the misfortune of going through a money-grubbing reseller on etsy.  

What this means, however, is that I'm spending an entire week filling ONE PERSON'S ORDER, which is drastically pushing back the turn-around time for everyone's order after them.

 

I'm very sorry, but until I fill these two monumental orders, and get caught up on the normal orders that follow them, there's a significant delay in the turn-around time.

 

If you are placing a time-sensitive order, I'm sorry, but I probably cannot accommodate you right now.  Make sure to leave a message in the notes section of the cart check-out page, listing any specific dates you need your item delivered by.  

 

I will always try to get them to you on time, but as always, I cannot make any guarantees on delivery time.

Bigger Delays

I've had a significant spike in orders over the last week.  And it's not like I've had an increase of small orders, where everyone gets a couple or few cutters.  I'm talking increase of BIG orders.  So consider this notice that the delay has just grown by a few days.  I'd estimate 7-9 Day Turnaround right now on orders.

 

Please take this into consideration when placing time-sensitive orders.

Remember that if you need your cutter by a specific date, you NEED to say so in the comment/note section of the shopping cart page right before clicking the Proceed to Checkout button.

If you send me a message separately, that request won't be visible in my system while I'm going down the list of things to print, and I won't catch it.

 

Also, I'm afraid I simply cannot make any guarantees on rush requests.  Please be aware of them when placing time sensitive orders.

Turn-Around Time as of Sept 13

Turn-around time is production time - the time it takes from me getting your order, to it being shipped out.  This does not include the time it takes to ship the item.

 

The turn-around time as of Saturday Sept 13th:

Normal orders (less than 10 cutters): 4-9days

Bulk Orders (More than 11 cutters): 2+ weeks depending on quantitiy

 

Remember!  If you need your items by a specific date (even if you think you're ordering it with plenty of buffer) that you should include a note with your order, stating that date.  If I feel I'm falling behind (usually due to someone placing an unexpected bulk order) then I'll prioritize any orders that are needed by a specific date.

 

Thank you for your patience.
