Time for another mini-update. After a lot of back and forth (a lot!) trying to resolve an issue with the De Luxe box layout, it seems we finally have it resolved and the printer let me know we can proceed with the test print. According to the printer:
"Sorry to keep you in waiting since the communication back and forth on artwork problem, yet it will still take us 2 more weeks to complete the sample since we need to set up new blue print and film accordingly, we will keep you in posted during sampling process. Thanks for understanding."
Hopefully, this will be the last speed bump...
