Customizer's Current Wait Times Thread

I used to never get hit unless it was UPS (I’ve been hit for duty that cost more than the jersey itself from UPS). Over the past few months I’ve been hit on everything unless its through airmail. We have one of the lowest thresholds in the world for tax free imports ($20 which iirc, was put into place in the 80s, so super outdated). The US on the other hand is like $800. 

Well here's some welcome news for Canadian collectors...

Wow, it's progress. Nowhere near the $800, but at least its finally gone up.

I can't speak to CSL's glue removal results but I have always been pretty happy with EPS in that regard. It's been only very rarely and on white jerseys that they didn't get full, undetectable removal, and not EVERY white jersey, just a couple out of at least 10. 

Great, I was hoping someone on the board would have had some experience with either of them to go off of. You've given me an idea of what I can probably expect. Thanks!

EPS should have no problem doing a Hawks jersey. They do the IceHogs’ on-ice jerseys and I’m pretty sure the fonts are identical. 

Sounds like the choice is EPS. Getting the right font was as important to me as how clean they come out. At least it's replacing 88's with 88's so coverage shouldn't be a big problem if at all. Thanks!

I had a Blues alt shipped to Keener so I guess I’ll have to wait a little bit haha

Are you swapping out just the numbers or the nameplate as well?  The 88's should be basically the same, but EPS' home/road letters aren't exactly the same as CSL's.

I'm not sure on the nameplates being removed until I get the jerseys. If the letters are close to correct and the plates are Edge I'll probably leave them. The lettering wouldn't be as big a deal to me as the numbers and it seems EPS had more reviews for removing old residue with success so that's the difference maker.

I paid Keener Aug. 31. Still waiting (not complaining).

I just got a tracking number for this today. 4.5 weeks. Plenty satisfied!

Apparently one of my jerseys was on the Keener live show 2 weeks ago, but I still haven’t received a shipping notice yet.  Not worried or anything, but seems a bit strange.  It’s been 6 weeks now.

The same sort of thing happened with one of my recent orders @LAK74.  I think they do up some of the more rare ones they want to show on KJLive before they finish the entire order.  You should see a notice soon, I think 6 weeks was the max I've waited on an order too.

They've shown two of yours, @LAK74.  Maybe they're still working.

Interesting.  Were they displayed in 2 different shows?  If so, do you remember when the most recent one was?

It was after the one that got brought up in the other thread. Early last week maybe?

It never fails.  Whenever I e-mail or post about a shipping inquiry, the order gets shipped the same day!

Does anyone have experience with communication from Cutting Edge Sports? I emailed them a week ago and got no response.

The one in Massachusetts?  Didn't they go out of business a few years ago?

Definitely not. They did a white Islanders wave jersey for me last year around this time.

What’s their rate? I asked them for a quote a couple of years ago for a few jerseys they’ve done and I think they said $75 each.

That sounds about right. I definitely remember paying less than I thought I would.
