During the current global epidemic we have noticed that as many as 1/3 of our customers are experiencing delays to their orders. We are asking all of our customers who’re experiencing delays to be considerate of the situation and appreciate that many of the delays are a result of reduced frequency flights that carry much of the worlds postal cargo and the staff shortages ushered in by lockdown restrictions.

We are monitoring all of our customers orders as best we possibly can in an attempt to manage expectations and spot problems to resolve them as soon as possible. Management has decided that once there is more fluidity to the global shipping industry that a gift acknowledging the delays will be automatically sent out as a token of our appreciation.
