I shall do my best to keep you updated as best as possible during this challenging time. I’ve also compiled information from the CDC’s website about protecting yourself and others from COVID-19, the disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2).
TL; DR – You may experience some delays or disruptions when ordering from my website.
I am following the latest developments about the COVID19 outbreak, the illness caused by the SARS CoV-2, that is causing worldwide disruptions to daily life for many people.
One of my production partners, Printful, has United States based facilities in Los Angeles, California and Charlotte, North Carolina; Tijuana, Mexico; and Riga, Latvia. Today, I received the following announcement that I wanted to post for your benefit:
“On March 19, 2020, Los Angeles County announced the “Safer at Home” emergency order requiring all non-essential businesses to suspend operations until April 19. Businesses in L.A. have 24 hours to wind down their operations. The mayor has the right to extend or shorten the order.
That means Printful’s L.A. facility will temporarily suspend production after March 20, 2020, for the duration of the order. The situation is still unfolding, so all information is subject to change. For now, this is what you need to know:
Fulfillment teams are working scheduled shifts on March 20 to fulfill as many orders as they can. All future and remaining orders will be routed to one of our other facilities when possible. [Cotton-based T-shirt products, embroidery, and phone cases will be routed to] North Carolina. [All Over Printed products, such as Leggings, Dresses, Skirts, Fanny Packs] will be routed to Mexico and Latvia.
As of now, we don’t anticipate major delays in production. We’ll continue fulfilling orders today and our other branches are in good shape to pick up the extra volume from L.A. […] We will not be able to route the following products to other branches […]:
- Sublimated Towel
- Throw Blanket
The following all-over products [this shop carries] can’t be fulfilled at our Mexico facility and will be routed to Latvia:
- All-Over Print Padded Sports Bra
- All Over Print Drawstring Bag
- All-over Print Fanny Pack
- All Over Print Tote Bag
- All Over Print Beach Bag
- Sublimation Flip Flops
We may see more out of stock scenarios as our suppliers in California will also be affected.
Thank you for your patience. This is a difficult time for everyone and we hope this step will help end the spread of Covid-19 sooner rather than later. We’ll continue posting regular updates as they come, and we remind everyone to stay safe.”
