Yes I am Alive

Well it has been a while. Nearly half a year since the project completion. Life has been busy on my end, busy enough that internet has been unavailable for the majority of the last roughly half year and only a few hours a day when I do have time. I wanted to give another update that there are no new mugs but that does not mean I won't make more if it is requested. For those dedicated enough to want these mugs, I can work on them. It might take time but I can get more. Email me if interested. Again, thanks for all the support and I am proud to have done this project.

To all late comers who are fans of Spice and Wolf and want some custom merchandise, I welcome your requests. Keep on drinking Korbros. It is what I do when I can.

It has been a few months since the mugs officially shipped, with some issues here and there. I haven't received any new complaints and I've been trying to keep in contact in the Horo threads when they show up. Overall things appear to have gone well with the shipping though once again I must apologize to all those from different countries who faced ridiculous shipping fees. I still regret not being able to bring you the mugs I promised for a much more reasonable price. Thus ends the project and I am going to make sure all non essential information (such as addresses) are removed and all official work is safely within the servers of other enterprises.

If you have any issues in the future with mugs feel free to contact me. That said, I still have some left over mugs. Some misprints that I was given for free and the rest normal ones. If somebody happens to read this and wants more, I have a few more to send out.

On a final note, I will be gone come next year for a few months. Complete internet blackout. Afterwards the times at which I can browse threads or check my email will be at random. I might have days of free time, I might not see the light of the internet for a month (much to my dismay). If I am not within contact for a while, do not worry, I will do what I can to be online. It's been a pleasure and a learning experience making these mugs gentlemen and possibly ladies. Let's raise our glasses to Horo/Holo/Korbo, and drink until even the Wise Wolf would stagger.

Bad News

I've run across a bit of a snag with the price of international shipping. Instead of the previous 60-80USD pricetag it would be 170USD give or take. Either way, international buyers would be paying close to 200USD for one mug. Needless to say that since they cost only 7.50USD to have made, this is a HUGE price increase. I'm not sure what I can do but ask if anybody knows of cheaper ways to ship internationally. I checked both FedEx and UPS and to ship a package that is 10x12x8 at 4lbs, they both come out to that general cost.

I hate to disappoint international buyers like this but it is one of those things that I do not know what to do for. If anybody wants to buy for that price then I will have no issues wrapping them up well and insuring the hell out of them.

Personally I would recommend you email me so I can send you the images I used. There are other glass engraving studios around and it won't cost you 200USD.

I'd like to say I'm sorry about this turn of events to international buyers one last time. You have been waiting a long time for these mugs only to have to hear this. Again, if anybody knows cheaper shipping let me know. If you want the designs then email me as well and if you still want to go through with the order I can do that.

Alright I've been a combination of busy and lazy lately so I'm going to get international orders started this week. I'm going to be emailing everybody from my original list with a paypal money request as soon as I figure out the weight and cost to ship. These will be pricier thanks to the horrible shipping rates. I'll be sending the emails out throughout the week so if you do not get an email and were on the original bulk order, let me know around Friday since I'll finish the emails by then.

Additionally, if anybody that got orders has issues, let me know. Don't feel bad to bug me either since I sometimes get emails mixed up and I like to hear about progress. It seems like most people have gotten their orders and are happy with them from the general feedback I have been getting.

International Orders

Picked up the mugs for international orders today. I will soon be sending PayPal requests for money and then shipping as they are paid for. I will be charging for the base price of the mugs plus tax in my state, the cost of shipping, and the cost of insurance on the packages. None of the mugs for international have centered images though, all are next to the handle.

Order Question

So the company contacted me earlier today. They said some of the mugs had been printed with the graphics on the front (facing away from the handle) instead of right next to the left hand side of the handle (as shown in the picture). I saw some of the mugs and it looked perfectly fine to me. If anybody has a problem with this and really wants to have the graphics on the left hand side of the handle then let me know very soon.

As I said though, it looks fine by me when I saw them and I told the company it was fine since they were half way through production. But if it is a problem to you, let me know ASAP.

I got in contact with the company and asked them when the mugs would ship, they said they should be done by Friday and the time it takes in the states is 4-5 business days. Took them a bit longer to make them than I thought but you should be seeing them by next Friday at the latest. International orders who have paid, I will be picking up the mugs next week and shipping them myself then.
