Okay...so, we made a few changes in the shop.
We tried out two different 3rd party fulfillment companies for the merch. Both of them make the merch as ordered, and drop ship. Both of them have made excellent merchandise so far...but one of them has worked much better than the other in terms of the speed of fulfillment - and also integrates a bit better with the platform we used to build the Shop - so, I've now changed all the merch in the store so that this one company will do all the fulfillment going forward.
There are still a few open orders from the company we won't be working with any more, but I expect all those to ship this week. I appreciate the patience of the folks who have waited so long. These guys have been averaging about a four week turnaround, and I'm just not digging it. The other one is much faster...and they really do integrate much better with the Shop's engine from a design POV as well.
If you look at the store now, you'll see that a bunch of the merch has changed
, as we had to design all new stuff using the system of the manufacturer we like.
An unexpected bonus is that anybody who ordered anything from the manufacturer we won't be working with any more now has a collector's item, almost all of them one of a kind.
If anybody has any questions, please do let us know.
