Platinum/palladium really doesn't lend itself to mass production. Carl reports that the printing of the sale prints is going slowly but surely, with a production of eight or nine prints a day settling in as a workable pace. At this point, the epic first printing session is drawing to a close and Carl will take a short break from printing to begin shipping. The first orders will depart Atelier Weese via Priority Mail early next week.
It looks now that it may take eight weeks from the close of the sale (April 30th) for all the orders to ship, meaning that shipping time would need to be added to that. However, since Carl will be shipping prints as he goes along, in several batches, most prints will arrive well before then, except for orders placed at the very end of the five-day sale period.
MikeADDENDUM: Some stats. There were 190 orders, 120 from the U.S. and 70 international.
