Our attempt at ending the production runs on BOTH the 3-foot long Bruce Sharks & 1/6 Bruce Bust were our attempt to buy us time to complete and publish our Newest Updated Shark products.
However this has dramatically increased the number of people contacting us for these products. ☺ This ain't so bad, right?
Well, you see, we ended these runs so that we could free up some time instead of only filling orders now 7 days a week. Yet turning off the purchase buttons on our site has produced a form of panic, leading many to begging for just one last shark!
But.... we still need time away from only filling private & vendor orders, and private commissions, to literally mold, build, set, photo-shoot, create write-ups and webpages and work with vendors before we can properly release the actual New products, even just for a standard pre-order.
So, our solution is to turn our "BUY NOW" buttons back on for the web site, using the previous product photos and write-ups as Pre-Order status purchases.
So, those that still want a shark can secure their shark by "Buying Now" or they can set up their
INTEREST-FREE Payment plans with Cathy via PM again.
Hopefully this will buy us the time I need away from the production lines to get everything done for these previously completed but collecting-dust-prototypes to be made PUBLISHED and LIVE☺.
All previously scheduled builds are of course still running several days ahead of our shipping schedule, so keep an eye out if you are close to your provided due date.☺
My biggest hope is that once we have the time to finish publishing these updated products properly, and after we finish upgrading our shop equipment and layout; that we will be able to get our >purchase-to-ship times< down to only days or a few weeks or less at a maximum.
As usual any ideas or suggestions are welcome.
Thank you all for your patience and kind encouragements ☺
Mike & Cathy
