I make all of my products myself personally and do not outsource or have them made for me in China. Quality and attention to detail is the most important thing to me and I refuse to cut corners to get stuff out the door quickly. As a result, I frequently have a waiting list for some items. When you place your order and it includes one of those items, you will be Pre-Ordering that item and adding yourself to my waiting list. I do not split ship orders so if you want part of the order that includes in stock items to ship right away, please place a separate order. When I am ready to complete your Pre-Order, my system will send you an e-mail with a copy of the order and a link to make payment with your credit card or PayPal. Once your order has been paid in full, production of that item will begin with shipping to follow as quickly as possible, usually within a week to 10 days or less.
The current ESTIMATED lead time is stated above. This is an estimate only and in no way a guarantee of delivery time. It is nearly impossible for me to predict how production will go from week to week so it could be longer or shorter. I am the only one who will be building your item and all it takes is one day out of the shop due to illness or taking a day off to spend with my family to completely mess up my schedule. If you are in a bind and need it quickly, I may be able to accommodate your needs on a case by case basis. Please contact me via telephone or e-mail to discuss as I will NOT see any notes in the comments section until I am ready to actually work on your order which will be too late!
I DO NOT send updates on the status of your order as that would be counter productive and massively time consuming! Please don't e-mail before the estimated lead time has passed to ask where your order is. I don't mean to be rude but I will not be able to reply to such e-mails.
If, at any time, you get tired of waiting for me and want to cancel your Pre-Order, just let me know. I very much appreciate your business and value you as a customer. Rest assured, I will be working diligently to get your order completed in the shortest time frame without cutting corners. I appreciate your patience!
