General lead time policy:
Our lead time policy provides an estimated timeframe for the production and delivery of your order based on the specific product(s) you have chosen and/or created for production and quantities. Factors that may affect lead times include the complexity of the product, the materials used, availability of sourced materials, optimization of your unique design, and the current production queue. We aim to provide accurate lead time estimates, but please be aware that actual lead times may vary and due to the customized nature of every design created and produced, we do not guarantee lead times.
