FINAL UPDATE ADDENDUM

5 comments

Hello Supporters!

At this point, most of you have likely received your books, as most orders went out in the first wave of shipping, direct from the printer.

Now the second wave begins, which will be handled from the CBLDF offices in NYC. This brings us to two updates:

1. If you have not received your book, you have either been sent an e-mail requesting address confirmation, or there was another problem in initial shipping. If you have not heard from us, please e-mail info@cbldf.org to let us know that you are still waiting, and we will track your shipment.

2. There have been many comments and messages about damages. We are eager to address these concerns, and make sure that all contributors to this project are happy with the results. If your book and/or slipcase is damaged beyond your satisfaction, please e-mail info@cbldf.org with the subject line "transmet damage". We will work with everyone concerned regarding replacements, and hopefully we can solve any problems despite the limited nature of the product.

This project was conceived, organized, developed, finalized, and shipped by volunteers. We appreciate their hard work and effort more than a mere mention in this post can convey. This was a labor of love, and all effort is extremely appreciated. The office staff of the CBLDF is happy to take the reins of shipping and customer service, with a tip of the hat and a round of applause for everyone involved up to this point.

Thanks for your support!
