No lumps of coal.

 

 

Public Holidays, Ha! At the lab, many of us are still working to get your boxes out to you with a smile.

Other than making good progress on the orders, we are busy with organizing the order queing and notifications. Please forgive us if there are some mistakes within our planning, we are working with hundreds of orders in various groups, and so sometimes get things a little out of order. Things are starting to get worked out so that we will be able to stay in sync with production and packing better. 

US and EU standard shipping arrangements:

It seems like there is still confusion on this. Your order is already in production. We have made the shipping arrangements for these orders that reduces the shipping time to 1-2 weeks. The proposed schedule will have it arrive a few weeks earlier than if we send it via surface mail or the originally planned sea freight.

In order to take advantage of the new shipping method, we have to aggregate our shipments, so can not just send out the earlier orders in the order they were placed. We understand that this is frustrating, since we are sending out other orders in the mean time while yours is waiting for the shipment time, but in the end it will get to you sooner.

We are looking forward to next year at the lab, and are enjoying the proliferating stories of people using their MakiBoxes for something cool. 

Happy Holidays! 

The MakiBox Team

Happy hollidays, hope the crew will take a bit of time to celebrate shipping what i think is a great product for a super price, in the near future.

Thanks again

Thanks everyone! I think by Chinese New Year, we will be in good shape to have a little celebration.

"We have made the shipping arrangements for these orders that reduces the shipping time to 1-2 weeks"

Care to elaborate more on the shipping? Which company are you using, when do they hope to have them out the door?

It would also greatly increase your goodwill if you can give us all an estimate of when they will be delivered.

Until we get these things it is really hard to believe you. I mean with your past promises and all.....

@Jonathan - Customers have each received notices. Those orders are going out the second half of January and are going out via brokered courier services, so either FedEx or UPS typically. If you have not received a notice, and you are one of the customers that this would apply to, please check your junkmail and then contact our customer_support@makible.com.
