Usually the wait time is around 4 weeks for your hat block to be made, sometimes it may be sooner. You will be informed at time of order confirmation what the current time frame will be. At peak times of the year, such as before a racing season or after trade shows, the wait time may increase to 5 or 6 weeks. It is wise to get in early.
International customers need to be aware that there is an added 10 days shipping involved and need to be prepared well in advance for their deadlines.
If you have a special urgency, please let us know as we will do our best to make sure that if you have a deadline for a client of yours, that you do not miss it because of waiting for your block.
You may request exclusivity for a block that you have designed yourself or in conjunction with us. It cannot be had for a non original design or a copy of another block or hat you have seen. It cannot be had for a design if you have not requested such. For more information about exclusivity, please read this article. We recommend that you discuss this with us in more depth if this interests you.
