Just a quick note today. 🙂
We received an urgent alert from the printer this morning.
The holiday shopping season is now in full swing and the printer’s many facilities (they are the largest print on demand printer in the world) are nearing capacity. The UK facility is already at capacity.
SHORT RUN ORDERING (10 or more copies going to the same address)
Effective 11/20/18: U.S. PRINTING FACILITIES – Rush and Expedited printing services will be suspended through mid-January. PLEASE PLACE YOUR ORDERS NOW TO AVOID EXPEDITED SHIPPING FEES AND STRESS. If the backlog gets higher than normal (we’re expecting a very good season because of the economy – books are already selling like crazy!), they reserve the right to bump up this date.
Effective 10/3/18: U.K. PRINTING FACILITY – Rush and Expedited printing services have ALREADY BEEN SUSPENDED through mid-January because of increased holiday demand. You can still order expediting shipping services.
