UPDATE 1ST JUNE:There is currently a global shortage of plastic, in particular clear polycarbonate, acrylic, PETG and PVC (vinyl). We have a back-order with our main supplier who (fingers crossed) already has a stock of clear blanks that were manufactured before the pandemic hit. However, we have not had this confirmed yet, so there will very likely be significant delays on orders for clear/transparent cuts. Many suppliers are simply not taking orders for any clear plastic materials unless it is specifically for PPE, which is understandable, others are suggesting wait times upwards of four weeks.
If you have an open order for clear/transparent cuts with us and would prefer not to wait or would prefer to switch to black anyway, please get in touch. As far as we know at this stage, black plastic is unaffected but we will update here if that changes.
We are still open and cutting, however all recording projects have been cancelled until further notice.
The only person using the studio will be John, the cutting engineer. He cycles to the studio and doesn’t leave until it is time to go home again.
The studio is being cleaned on a daily basis.
All our products are treated with an anti-static solution that is naturally anti-microbal.
We are trying to minimise trips to the post office, so orders will be sent out in batches. Apologies for any delays coused by this.
Some of our suppliers have shut down and we fully respect them for doing that. Unfortunately, this means that some products are scarce and we will inform you as soon as possible if we are unable to source the products you have ordered. At the moment, this is limited to some types of printing. If in doubt, get in touch before placing an order.
Turnaround times may also be affected.
The descision to remain open has not been taken lightly. We would like to be able close the studio temporarily however we would not survive as a business if we did. We have seen a significant reduction in revenue and still have things like rent to pay. At this stage it seems we are not entitled to any of the help the government is offering. We also realise that orders placed are for independent labels, artists and musicians who also need an income through this epidemic. If there is any way we can help our customers at this time, we are open to suggestions.
