Production Update 1/19/22

The below info are best ESTIMATES. We are doing our very best to be transparent and keep you updated on what we are working through. To our dismay, we do not have the luxury to call each customer individually to discuss each update. We absolutely wish we could, but we simply don’t have the manpower. We are focusing our energy on production efficiency and getting the work completed. Please check back to the website periodically for updates.

Please note: “Production Time” does not include shipping time. Yes, we will email you a tracking number when it ships.

Things are moving right along as swiftly as can be expected based on extreme order volumes at this time. See our parent company, Smoky Lake, for a more detailed explanation about Lead Times.
