I just thought I'd write another blog post to update everyone on the situation of the pre-order pins! If you've ordered something anywhere from the end of November to now and haven't received a shipping notification, then you would have a pre-order included in your order.
The affects of the Coronavirus has impacted businesses worldwide, including ours. With many workers in China having still yet to return to work, delays for production and shipping are expected. Unfortunately one of our manufacturers will not be returning to work until the 10th March, thankfully we don't have anything in production with them, but it does mean we can't release as many new products as we wanted over the next coming months.
In regards to our main manufacturer, there have been inevitable delays due to the the impact of the virus. From our previous update from our manufacturer, there may still be delays, so it may be the case the date mentioned in our previous blog post may not be met. We are still expecting the pins to arrive to us towards the end of this month, but this all depends on how the virus continues to impact China over the next few weeks.
Important Information From Last Blog Post:
I have had a handful of customers being concerned of coming into contact with the virus from the surface of the product. There is a 0% chance of catching anything from any our products that are manufactured in China, any form of bacteria dies during the shipping period. All pins are cleaned and cleansed before shipment and are always handled with the greatest care. Our manufacturer has excellent communication with us and has reported to me that all workers are in great health - the factory is also fairly far away from any areas with a major outbreak.
That's all for now everyone, we will continue to send updates as soon as we get more news.
Thank you ever so much for your patience and support.
Lots of love,
