Thank you for ordering from TMA!

PRODUCTION TIMELINE

Due to high demand, please take note: as of April 1, 2017, all production times have been extended to 8 weeks minimum. This is retroactive to all orders received after April 1, 2017. TMA will do what we can to keep small orders at or under the following 8 week schedule, but please keep in mind the new standard minimum production times.

Please use this as a reference for when your order will start production and when the estimated shipping date will be for your order.

These dates are estimates and can be changed at any time for any reason. Should there be any delays, notification will be posted here and on the FACEBOOK page as soon as possible to keep you up to date.

  • HOW THIS TIME LINE WORKS:


    The above time line is a generalization of the work schedule for every standard order submitted to TMA. Some items can be sent out early, but this is NOT a guarantee. If you need your order sooner than this schedule, please see the Term and Conditions page for RUSH information. Again, there are no guarantees and this schedule is in place to give every order top attention. PLEASE NOTE: All orders are 8 weeks for processing. Please take this time frame into account when placing your order.

    The "no earlier than" is the rough estimate for the earliest date when your order should be ready for shipping. The 8 week schedule is the general rule and should be considered when asking about the status of your order. For instance, if your order is placed on October 1st, the earliest it could ship is on or around November 26.

    The time frame around the end of each calendar year is a "floating" schedule. The last day to submit a regular order to be processed and delivered in time for Christmas is typically the third weekend in October, whatever date that may be. This is because the TMA shop and office shut down for the Christmas and New Year holiday beginning the Saturday before the week containing Christmas (or December 16, depending on the year) and ending the Monday (or January 2, whichever comes first) following New Years Day. The firm dates for shut down will be announced on the BLOG, INDEX, and Facebook pages as soon as they are determined every year.

    Orders can still be placed 24/7/365, however during this break, all orders will be processed on the Monday following New Years Day (or January 2nd, whichever comes first) and the time frame for production will begin on that day as well.

    Also, in the spring time around March or April, I do take a one week break for family vacation (Spring Break). Because this time is also a "floating schedule," it will be announced each year when orders will fall inside this one week shutdown. Orders placed relatively close to the cutoff can possibly be completed and shipped before the break - but as always this is not a guarantee. Orders placed within the 8 weeks leading up to the break will have one additional week of processing. Any order that is received during the break will be processed on the proceeding Monday and production time will begin that day.

    During the year, there are different conventions that I do participate in. Since these are not set dates in the year, they will be announced when the dates are firmed up. Any orders that fall within those dates will be addressed on an as-needed basis.

    Also, please keep in mind that during the holidays and around the time of specific conventions, production times may unavoidably increase based on demand. Should this happen, it will be announced here on this site and on the Facebook pages.

    All other orders will be processed as normal with 8 weeks minimum processing. Please take this into account when considering a purchase.
