Possible Delays

No one wants to hear this, but no matter what we do, the physical paperback will not be available by the original December estimation. We are about a week behind schedule on the pages. We have also been talking with our book manufacturer and they are currently estimating an additional 2 to 3 weeks extra added to their lead time due to various global supply chain issues.

When estimating the amount of time needed to fulfill this project, we made sure to add extra buffer room, but despite that, some things are still out of our hands. For example, the aprons have shipped. The lead time from order to door is usually 40 days but they estimated 80 days to accommodate the current (and worsening) global shipping crisis. We're hopeful to get the aprons by mid-October, but we also will not be surprised if they don't get here by then. We will keep you all posted.

We are currently discussing internally if we can feasibly make arrangements to expedite the shipping for the paperbacks but it's a numbers game since we are a small company. As some insight, for our project budget sheet, we based the shipping price off of shipping by sea. Expedited shipping (via air) costs SIX (6) times more. Luckily we were conservative with our estimates but we have a few more expenses to get final numbers before we can make the final decision.

On the bright side though, as soon as the digital PDF is done, we will be releasing it to everyone who preordered!

 

That's all for updates now. Please check back again mid-October. We will hopefully have more information on the status of all the items.
