Due to the holiday rush, vacation days for staff, and a higher number of inclement weather related shop closures, the lead time has slipped to 4-5 weeks.

We on the west coast have been hammered with one storm after another, and up Phil's way it turned to snow as much as rain. Not a good situation, even for folks accustomed to it.
Imagine what you will know tomorrow....

I just wanted a little bit of clarification. The 4-5 weeks of lead time, is that for new orders placed as of today or what?

I placed an order before Christmas and the confirmed status has yet to change.

This mostly applies to existing orders, since the delays prevent SF from working on much of anything.

Just last year some of us were waiting 20-22 weeks for holiday/TFA rush orders. Just goes to show how much the business has improved!

I placed my order a day after Christmas, does my order fall under this or no? Just curious
In the end, it doesnt really matter, does it?

It appears like they are ripping through orders pretty quick. I ordered January 31 got the 4-5 week lead time, but then got a shipping notification today with estimated delivery Wednesday.

@ Darth Kloros

Really? I placed mine like a week earlier and haven't heard anything yet. Though mine's an ASP order with a couple powder coated parts, so that adds on time. Hopefully it's true and applies to powder coating. I want my saber.

I just checked my order status with my login and saw it had been fulfilled and had a tracking number.

Typically, main site orders will take a little longer than Etsy Store orders, because the sabers on Etsy are pre-built and ready to ship quickly (which is also why there are few alteration choices available). B)

I had to order from the main site, because Etsy doesn't process gift certificates...lol...not complaining just curious.
