If any of our items are out of stock, they will automatically become 'pre-order'. This means, we will make this item just for you. Due to our high volume of custom order and made-to-order items, this process takes up to or over 6 weeks. If you order an item that is marked as pre-order, we will begin to start making your piece after payment has been received. If the wait time is too long, you must let us know within THREE BUSINESS DAYS of purchasing a pre-order item so we can cancel and refund your order.
You will be notified via email once your order has been shipped after approximately 6 weeks.
