Well, best to wait for a well made product. A little more waiting lies ahead.The story thus far.
The current printing of counter sheets comprises two parts: a special (custom) order; and a regular (Pre-order) printing. The special order weighs in at about 20 kg, which is about 8% of the total order.
Because of the multiple delays experienced over the past month, I asked that the special order be given priority. This morning I went to the printer's to pick up that order - and immediately saw that the sheets had been die-cut backwards, with the broken/wreck side "on top" (similar to what happened with HOB's German Captured Vehicles back in the day).
My printer, Keith, called the die-cutter, Val, to halt further die-cutting. I'm not sure how much of the rest of the order had been cut to that point. I guess I now have 20-40 kg of incorrectly die-cut counter sheets - aka kindling. And as we all know, Kindling is NA in 99.9% of ASL scenarios.
Keith has taken the lead to make sure that the necessary sheets are re-printed and properly die-cut, along with the rest of the order.
In short, more delays.
Devious you are my friend! But I admit having the wrecked vehicle side on the front would make the OCD/CDO people here very happy as extras ......Sneak them onto eBay after everything else has sold out packaged as ultra rare one offs.
If imprinted stamps and coins can be worth more....
I am one of those OCD people. The HoB German vehicles drove me nuts. Especially concealed (dummies) stuff as it gave it away (we quickly learned to start using proxy counters until the vehicle was seen)............ would make the OCD/CDO people here very happy as extras ......
Not a problem Alan , you know we ASLers are used to waiting on products I look forward to getting mine for sure!On holiday...
... and off-grid until Sep. 8th. The Store is closed for now.
I've received the first batch of sheets, and the rest will be ready this week. I will start shipping to Pre-Orders the week of Sep. 9th.
Again, my apologies for the delays, but this has been beyond my control.
Thank you for your patience.
