I know it's difficult feeling left out of the 1st edition, however, I'm working hard behind the scenes to make the next edition feel just as special. Of course, I'll be paying attention to your feedback from the first edition.
WHEN WILL DECKS SHIP?
Decks will be shipping by Mid-February 2019. My manufacturer projected decks to be complete by early December, which would have put the decks in the US this month. Unfortunately, that did not happen. They've taken longer to produce than anticipated. It's something that's been incredibly frustrating for me, but understandable, considering I've tripled inventory and production was during the peak holiday season. There are certain aspects of this project that have been out of my control, and this is one of them. However, now I can say with certainty that decks are currently on a ship that set sail January 2nd, my export papers cleared and so the ETA on my freight document is Feb. 12 (fingers crossed it makes it to shore earlier). If I could've shipped by plane I would have. But air-mailing 8,500 pounds of decks would've cost more than the deck themselves, so here we are.
Again, I appreciate your patience and promise these decks are worth the wait. I did receive my inspection copies and as hoped, the quality of this deck exceeds even the first edition. It's been worth every headache LOL. I really wanted to ensure the 2nd edition felt just as special as the first in its own way. I definitely believe I accomplished that. Honestly, I can confidently say you won't often find a deck of this quality and detail. I'm finally patting myself on the back for a job well done.
