Invoice Request

It has been a long and busy week. I just sent a request to the glass company for details on everybody's orders and will wait for a reply. The invoices are taking longer than expected but I have a solid list hammered out now in the least.

Ordering End

At this time I am going to end the ordering process. I have 78 orders at the moment and am waiting on final emails. This is going to be very expensive for me to do so I plan on sending invoices and gathering some money first. It will give people a last chance too. Now for the long and laborious process of sending everybody an invoice and ordering the mugs. This too will take some time largely because of my horrible lack of foresight. I forgot just how busy the end of the semester can get and as such I'll be working slowly but steadily towards getting these mugs done and shipped out.

Likely within a week the invoices will be sent out and I'll have the mugs commissioned. How long it takes to have them made I have no idea but I will make sure to post about that when I find out. Thanks for all your patience during this process too. I've never handled something like this before or organized such a large transaction before but Murphy's Law has not been hitting me too hard which I am thankful for.

The Final Stretch

So I have emailed everybody who hasn't replied yet during the ordering phase. If you are one of those people and are reading this, check your spam folders and send me an email. At this rate I will close the ordering period within the next two weeks and start taking money orders through paypal/have the mugs made.

This is getting to crunch time. Right now with only about 1/2 the potential orders filled (lack of responses from interested parties) I still have 45 orders in total. If I get a final surge of emails I might be able to drop the price even lower. It has been a few weeks since I spoke to the glass designers but if I remember right, 9.21USD was the price per mug with an order under 40. If that is the case then the price should be even lower but don't hold me to that.

It has been a hell of a project to work on and organize but it has been going well. If you have any major questions feel free to email me and in the meantime keep checking the blog for updates.
