👀We must apologize.....this is a notice of raise in shipping fee.
(We know....price increase everywhere, sorry to add more bad news....)
We received message from the post office that they have no choice but to raise their international shipping fee from June 1st...and it's not a small raise this time.
EMS (Express Mail Service) shipping fee from the post office is the most economical and fast international shipping method to overseas right now for us even though there are still many countries that they can't deliver to due to the pandemic.
Up till now, for countries EMS can't reach, we have chosen UPS or DHL and have covered the cost "difference" (from EMS) ourselves to lighten the burden of our customers. We will continue to do this.
As EMS shipping fee will rise from June 1st, for those of you who are planning to make an order with us, please do so within May while shipping fee is cheaper.
👀 Some updates from Presspop.
As always, we have 2-3 projects in the works with some new projects starting too.
But with the pandemic etc., both production and shipping situation is turtle speed as we mainly manufacture in Asia, outside Japan.
We have been producing original products for many years and still have some stuff that we want to realize in our remaining life so we are now looking to build a small manufacturing studio/factory of some sorts within Japan next year to make better the current situation. We will report on how things are going from time to time.
🛹 On another note, the HR skateboard decks will probably be ready to ship next week. We are still accepting orders, now!
🤖 Also, one of our most recent projects is an OEM manufacturing project of action figures of Denzel Curry and Kenny Beats. It took us almost three years from the time when we received the offer to delivery, especially because of the pandemic.
Or no, maybe that doesn't matter. We had to make so many samples to have the figure and packaging look just right. We appreciate that Denzel and Kenny and all the kind staff involved were very patient with us.
We don't know where they are being sold but if you find them, please check them out as we think they look great.
May peace🙏 be with you all.
