Just got this letter from poor Imus Geographics…I bought two after the BoingBoing link to the Slate article, but that was days later, as it took that long for their server to be available.
Hello from Imus Geographics!
So many of you have sent questions about your orders that we feel it is
time to send a blanket email to answer the question we get most often –
“Dave, when will my map ship?” Rather than answer individual emails –
which is always our preference – we are contacting you all at once, hoping
you will understand.
First, thanks again to everyone for your patience as our fulfillment
house, Raven Maps and Images, sends your orders as quickly as possible.
Raven is able to ship about 2000 maps per week, and as of 1/18/12 had
shipped through order number 6500. Those orders should be there already or
within a few days.
For everyone whose orders are above 6500, your maps go out at the rate of
about 350-400 each day, which means that all of the outstanding orders
will be shipped within two weeks, with the majority done in the next ten
days. Below is a rough estimate of the date maps will ship, based on our
progress to date:
Orders ——- Ship
Through —– Date
6500 ——- 1/18/12
6900 ——- 1/19/12
7300 ——- 1/20/12
7700 ——- 1/23/12
8100 ——- 1/24/12
8500 ——- 1/25/12
8900 ——- 1/26/12
9300 ——- 1/27/12
9700 ——- 1/30/12
10100 —— 1/31/12
10500 —— 2/1/12
10900 —— 2/2/12
Again we appreciate the opportunity to talk or communicate with each of
you directly, but the volume of questions on delivery – more than 50 a day
– is leaving us with this blanket solution for answering this question as
efficiently as possible. Thanks for understanding.
Dave Imus, Cartographer
