OddCity wrote:All prints are shipping this week. Please be patient till Friday. The less emails we have to answer the more prints that will go out. We have shipped everything the day after the label was printed. There is no reason to pay for postage if you are not shipping otherwise. USPS dropped the ball on a few of them, but they seem to be getting into proper hands now.

I have no control over USPS, so I cannot say why a package would be delivered without delivering tracking info. It has happened with several prints though.

Also, we are switching to shopify to avoid the ambiguity of a shipping confirmation going out without the item actually shipping, hence the store.
OddCity wrote:Hi Everyone,

The Godfather prints are shipping as we speak. We are however getting about 200 emails a day asking about the status of the print with some being very specific. It takes on average 2-3 minutes to answer each e-mail. Multiply that by 200 a day and you can see how we are spending much more time on Administrative work rather than shipping. We would kindly ask that you refrain from asking status for just the next 7 days so we can get all of these out. This includes both Usual Suspects and True Romance Variants as well.

We understand your concerns and acknowledge why you would be anxious to receive these as you have paid for them and it is your right. Please help us to have the time to get these to you.

Thank you and have a great evening.

We just received The Godfather prints! :D Shipping will commence tomorrow. We will put a pic or 2 on our FB and possibly here. Right now it is time to prep for shipping. We can not wait for you to see the final piece!
OddCity wrote:Hi everyone!

I hope you are all enjoying the holidays.

I wanted to give you an update on the shipment of Godfather prints.
The prints have been in Austin a few days. Due to the holidays the
shipment is taking a bit longer in customs. We are hoping to have them in hand tomorrow.

I will keep you updated!

I think it would be best told through interpretive dance.

This is not ridiculousness. This is just trying to balance shipping by also answering 200 emails a day which at an average of 3 minutes an email takes about 10 hours to reply. A big chunk of everyday.


We are hoping to have everything out in 4 days.
The guy is OCD when it comes to answering emails, but not when it comes to our prints. Go figure :hanging:

That doesn't comply with the Odd City Business Model.

I've been following some of the recent nonsense with Godfather II, but what is the deal with The Usual Suspects and True Romance prints? The Usual Suspects says it was released on 11/20/13 and True Romance on 2/7/14, but those are just now shipping?
