"Par for the course with this band" the FLOOR guys assure me, but much to my surprise and dismay: the boxes came out the WRONG COLOR !!! Such a frustrating turn of events right in the 11th hour... but basically when faced with a further 3-4 week delay or keeping it as is: we all opted to keep the wrong-color boxes and take it as a sign.
Originally we'd planned on having the box fabric actually be blue, but eventually chose gray to compliment the backs of all the covers better. Much to all of our surprise though, an error in the fabric's labeling at the plant resulted in this bizarre twist of events... and in the end it was such a classy looking screwup that we decided just to roll with it!
It's done. It's actually done. It's got a problem, but we can all live with it and hopefully you can too, because... ITS DONE!
All of our copies should be in-house on Friday, and same goes for the pre-order t-shirts. Then we'll bust our asses to get these all shipped out and into your hands ASAP! Almost there...!!!
