A few things about how this works-
Everything has an item number, it is VERY helpful if you refer to that when inquiring or placing an order. I tend to get a ton of emails and it just makes it so much easier.
In general, an invoice is sent same day and item normally ships within 1-2 days...its total instant gratification. My goal is to have everything shipped out by weeks end and spend the rest of the time fulfilling orders through my shop until I close up shop Dec. 15th until late December.
