Hi Everyone! Taking a break from some late night MAN OF STEEL rolling for a minute to get you guys updated on our shipping queue. It has been a while since we’ve last updated, and we got a whole bunch of stuff delivered to us today, I figured I’d let you know what to expect from us shipping-wise.
First, MAN OF STEEL… Got the final “wave” of prints in today. We have all but about 1,000 shipping labels printed and about 1,500 posters left to roll. Believe it or not, the labels take the longest in this process, so we are trying to keep ahead of the rolling by printing early. You might receive tracking a day or so before it actually leaves the building, but the plan to have all of these out the door by Monday-Tuesday.
MAN OF STEEL METAL… These arrived today. Holy hell, they look great. We’ll have some photos up this weekend. I need to grab some batteries for our engraver so I can number them in the morning, but if you are local come by and pick yours up starting tomorrow. Totally worth the wait! These ship next week.
GHIBLI (Records & Shirts)… Up until now we’ve been weary of giving concrete ship dates on this only because, well, to be honest, we didn’t have an exact date. The good news is they ship from the plant early next week. We expect 2-3 days for delivery from the plant to us, and from there shipping the records are our top priority. Turn around should be pretty quick on those. Shirts, are scheduled to arrive late next week as well. We will ship the two simultaneously. Timed out pretty strange in that regard, but that’s where we are with those. I want to sincerely apologize for the delays. They were completely unexpected. Unlike MAN OF STEEL where we forewarned about shipping delays, we thought we would have the GHILBI items have in hand within our self-proposed 3-4 weeks shipping window, but unfortunately it was out of our control. Thank you so much for your patience.
ELYSIUM… We had an opening in the shipping queue between arrival of MAN OF STEEL waves so we were able to sneak out a good 75% of these. Combined orders are the exception. If you are local, please come on by and pick yours up. If you requested combined shipping it might be another few days before we are able to get to them.
HITCHCOCK WEEK… Today we got a shipment with all 3 (PSYCHO, and both VERTIGOs) I’ve been able to number both VERTIGO, but not PSYCHO yet. I’ll try to knock that out early in the morning so any Austinites who want to swing by and get them can feel free to do so this weekend. World famous photographer Billy Garret came by to shoot photos of these, and we should have some up on the blog soon. Hitchcock Shirts are scheduled to arrive late next week. We will post an update when they are in hand.
SHAUN OF THE DEAD… Most of these are shipped. Any combined order requests are backlogged, and will be shipped as we work our way through the queue.
THE WORLD’S END / GRANDMASTER… Kevin’s TWE prints have not arrived from the printer yet, but Vania’s GRANDMASTER has. I won’t be able to number them until early next week, and for that I apologize. They look terrific though. We should have some photos up for those later next week.
DUCKTALES… These are in the process of being printed, and could be another two weeks before they are in hand. We will post an update when we know for sure when we are expecting these.
WIZARD OF OZ… These are in hand and numbered. If you are local and would like to pick these up, please come by this weekend.
I’m sorry if I sound like a broken record for thanking you for your patience, but it is appreciated more than you know. We are going to be expanding our shipping facility in the near future as to speed things up in the shipping queue. Until then, we are chugging along here.
I apologize if I missed anything in this post. Back to rolling! Have a great weekend.
