So, as I mentioned below, the sample of tan arrived today (I need to email the tan clients but I will do it tomorrow because I am dead and I need to do a lot of calculations and lists to prepare the next steps QUICKLY).
The tan sample is made with opaque resin and thus can’t be sanded. As mentioned this happened without my consent, because they can’t use the resin I was originally promised. I can use the dolls they have made for *something* but I don’t think they are suitable for those who have ordered tan resin and expect a certain quality and well… colour.
Therefor I think it’s best to move direct to the new factory, which is incidentally moving to a new location, but will try to squeeze in a rush order before they do. So tomorrow I need to run the numbers for a new set of molds for all the parts, and the price difference between the old and new factory, and give them a list of exactly what we need. Once they have completed the move, I hope we can start taking orders again.
As previously mentioned, I will not be passing these costs onto my clients for this past order, and that is going to be difficult, not for lack of will but for feasibility, but its the only fair thing I can do at this point.
Far as I know, although I don’t have a response yet, the old factory will still be doing the pink dolls, and presumably the teal, but I need to get them to confirm that. Its Friday night, if I write them tonight or even tomorrow morning they are not going to respond until Monday at the earliest.
I also still need to send tracking numbers to those of you whose dolls I shipped, I assume because they were admitted before 2pm they would have gone out and will not sit in the office all weekend…
Still have some dolls to pack, weigh, sand etc etc, but the stuff I need to do for the upcoming production change needs to take priority. All will get done, don’t worry. PM me for specific questions or comment here, but again, to get the most urgent things done, may be a little slower to respond. Damn, I need a clone…..
