Hello Everyone,

Deskmats

Normally deskmats take around 5-6 months to get to proxies but lately it's been a bit slower. 

    1. SA Mizu, GMK Bread, Winter Hour - Bad news. The shipment was accidentally delivered to the wrong unit in our building. Where they declined the shipment and it was shipped back to UPS. UPS started tracing last week and going through containers looking for the 15 boxes. We've heard back from UPS and the boxes were destroyed. We've re-ordered but don't expect the shipment to come in for another 3-4 months. Please reach out to us for alternative options. Update: Production of re-order is complete. Expecting these to arrive early June. These have arrived in Vancouver but there is a port delay due to Covid. Thank you for your patience! Just heard that we should get these by mid August.

    2. GMK Sumi Deskmats -  Bad news regarding GMK Sumi deskmats - it looks like there was a mixup with Ghost Koi <-> Sakura mat numbers, we got way more Sakura, and not enough Ghost Koi mats than expected.
      We've fulfilled what we can of the Ghost Koi orders, but going to immediately place another order with the manufacturer to have the rest covered. I'm going to assume it'll be a 2-3 months before we get them in.
      Thanks for your patience everyone. Please reach out to us for alternative options. Update: We should be receiving the new order of Ghost Koi in June/July.
    1. GMK Yuru DeskmatsThere was a problem with Nightscape deskmats where the manufacturer did not use the approved sample with the result having elevated darks. All vendors received deskmats not up to spec and have had to re-order. We expect the new shipment to come in the end of Q2 2021. The first batch will be up for sale as B-stock shortly.

      Bad news regarding just the Masterpiece Wave deskmats - there was a mix-up with Square <-> Wave mat numbers on the manufacturers end. We got a ton of Square, and not enough Wave mats than what was ordered.

      We've fulfilled what we can of the Masterpiece orders, but are expecting another 2-3 months before we get more Wave deskmats in. Thanks for your patience everyone. Please reach out to us for alternative options. Currently in production. We expect it to arrive sometime in June/July.

Statement from our manufacturer: Upon inspection before final assembly our QC team found that the colour of the top portion of the case was different from that of the pilot run samples that are featured in the content from the video reviews and our product photos. We have decided to halt assembly and have the case tops reproduced to match the colour that we intended in our design and which was approved at the pilot run stage. Because of this the delivery date from has been pushed until June 18th.
We appreciate your support and your patience and want to ensure you receive a quality product.
