    OK guys, I'm gearing up for a big week of shipping starting on Monday. With that comes good and bad news.

    Bad news first:
    As I started filling orders yesterday, I noticed a quality problem with the tag toppers. Essentially, about 40% of them don't meet my standards.

    Now the good news:
    Dennis at O'Brien Truckers is making good on the bad toppers and is working his ass off to replace them. No idea if I will have the good ones in time for Christmas or not.

    If you are an alliance member and you ordered early, chances are your tag topper will ship early next week. However, if you got in late there is a good chance that your order will be back-ordered until I get the good toppers from Dennis.

    Sucks, I know... And it's really thrown my shipping schedule for a loop... But ultimately, shit happens and there's no good reason to dwell on it I guess.

    Anyway, next week is gonna be a crazy one for me. Sorry for the news, but I'll bust my ass to make it up to y'all.

    You do what you have to do. There is a reason that they put erasers on pencils!
    I am just glad I got my order in, and look forward to getting the items when they arrive!
    Thanks for the update Ryan.

    Thanks for the update. If getting the Tag Topper late is my worst problem I think that I am GOOD!!

    Ryan, I don't need mine asap, if you want to let someone who is giving one as a gift let them have mine, I ordered two. If some is giving it as a gift post here so Ryan can see that.
     

  5. Good man Harv,but that's what we have come to expect from you. HRP

    I ordered two on 12-1 and two on 12-2. Dumb right? Mine can wait too if necessary.

    Toppers are a bonus when I get the ride tagged
    Are you coming to this years 4th of July picnic tomorrow? I guess I'm behind the power curve too...
     
  16. Late is ok with me too.....cuz I was one of the late ones....

    I have no idea where I am on the list, but I am fine with my topper being late. Next year is fine. My car doesnt go on the road till June anyways.
    But, the calendars are gifts so any way those can come before the holiday would be awesome. I understand that would cost you more shipping but I am fine with covering that if need be.
    Thanks Ryan

    Like others in this thread, I appreciate that, but you can add me to the wait list as well. It's winter here in the great midwest.

    Well I am ok too to be late. But I got an email saying mine has shipped along with a t shirt. I assume that means only good ones shipped?

    Yeah... Wouldn't make much sense to ship the bad ones.
