A Note on Mask and Panel Delays

Our custom tech panels are produced by a small overseas manufacturing shop. The manufacturer had a customs error that delayed the first shipment and had it turned back to the sender. The second shipment was successful, however one box of 200 panels scheduled to arrive April 20 are still being held by the shipment facility. As of May 9th we have contacted them daily, and have another set on order in case this case is returned to sender.

Stocking Stuffer Wishlist: Holiday Gifts Under $40

The deadline to place orders to arrive for the holidays is Dec 14th by noon.
I will be traveling starting Dec 15th, and will not be available to ship orders during that time.
