Coronavirus and Supply Info

3/25 Update:  Whew!  So we are finishing up the last few orders for 3/25!  We are officially caught up!  All orders going forward will go out either same or next day, as is our standard (unless something else extraordinary happens).  Thank you to everyone for your patience as we worked through this.  We'll spend the next few days cleaning up the warehouse and figuring out exactly what we have left.  I plan on doing a master list of recommendations for preppers based on what we have left.  I may even take a day off to quarantine with the family!  God Bless y'all, its been a crazy time, but we've had so much fun laughing, talking and even praying with our co-workers.

3/23 Update 3:  It looks like we've gone out of stock on enough bags that incoming orders are slowing down.  We'll see how many we can wade through tomorrow.  We are on March 22 orders, only a day back or so.  Maybe by Friday we'll be caught up!  Thanks y'all, this has been one heck of a ride.  Now we'll see what we can do to keep everyone employed until our shipment gets here sometime in June!  God Bless my peeps!

3/23 Update 2:

Our last random bag.  13"x14",probably around 1.25 gallons.  Limited stock, but we have about 10 cases available. 

3/23 Update:  About 3 days back right now on shipping orders out.  More out of stocks coming.  We're putting up something folks want (10"x14" 7.5 mil) but please note these are printed with information about a website that never did get built to our satisfaction.  These are at Pre-Corona pricing and will remain there until we are out of stock. 

 

3/17 Update:  So today went better than expected.  We are actually on the 17th orders.  I don't know what tomorrow will bring, but we are ahead of where we expected to be, with this morning's earliest orders getting in the mailstream tomorrow.  I do expect call-outs tomorrow so what I expected to happen today will happen tomorrow.  All I can offer at this point is a 'stay tuned'.  We're doing our level best to keep up, and we will continue processing orders first come first served until we are out of stock. 

One more recommended bag for today.  Folks bought out our 6"x9.5"x3.5" silver bag super quick.  I don't think folks realize we have the exact same bag (same material, thickness, etc) in green and black, in stock at pre-Corona pricing. 

 

3/17 Info:  Well, there's bad news, and then there's bad news.  We've had some call-outs of our staff, leaving us incredibly undermanned.  I would not place a new order if you need your shipment in any sort of reasonable time frame.  We are currently working on orders from the 15th, and will likely clear those today.  However, after that, I don't expect to get much further than that for the next couple of days.  I wish I could perform some miracles for you folks, but the world is getting pretty crazy, and we're caught up in it now.  I will update again when we are back at some decent labor capacity. 

3/15 Info:

Gadzooks, sorry y'all, been a whole week since we updated, it feels like its just been a couple days...our days look pretty much the same for all of us here...doing orders 12 hours a day each.  Yesterday we had caught up to current day orders (3/14), but no website orders are being run today, so we'll be back to about 2 days back on Monday 3/16 as we're seeing even higher volume today than we did 2 weeks ago.  We're out of stock of several sizes of the 7.5 mil bags, and getting low on the rest.  We've out of stocked the 5 mil 1 gallons except for the printed bags mentioned in our first update.  We're burning through most of our inventory at a furious rate, and I'm guessing we have maybe another week before we'll be out of several more bags.  Once the warehouse is mostly empty (about 2 weeks), we'll be able to take stock and sort out what we have left.  I've got an odd sized bag or two I haven't listed yet if anyone is interested from some custom orders (13"x14" 5 mil, for example).  Stay safe people! 

3/7 Update:  Some big waves of orders has pushed our timetable back a little bit, and my thought that we'd be completely caught up early next week is too optimistic.  We're currently finishing up orders from 3/5, and tomorrow we'll start 3/6 orders.  Orders from this weekend will likely start 3/10.  Thanks for bearing with us everyone, we are working as diligently as we can to get everything out as fast as we can.  One of our order fillers had some personal business to attend to for a few hours on Friday, as well as some general last-minute prepping for several of us (we're not going crazy, but I do have a daughter with asthma and an elderly MOL in our house, and we'll be avoiding crowds for the next several weeks as we assess.).  Next week the goal is bump our immune systems and push through orders as quickly as we can!  God Bless y'all, stay safe!

3/4 Update: Getting there!  We've turned off eBay as a platform that we sell on temporarily.  We are finishing up the last of our orders there today.  This will allow us to focus on clearing the website backlog, as well as reserving some extra stocks for the awesome folks who support us here.  I expect that doing this will allow us to be completely caught up on the website by early next week.  A huge thanks to Sir Gregory of Poole, our website order filler, who has been an absolute trooper in getting your orders out.  Please know that if anything is wrong (as always), we will take care of it, but it may take us a few extra days!  Thank you and God bless!

3/2 Update: A pretty good day, we caught up a good bit on our website orders, we're only about a day behind at this point I suspect we'll lose some ground tomorrow as we have to work another one of our platforms.  We added a 3rd full time order puller which was a big part of getting more orders out.  We shipped out about 2.4 bazillion orders.  We received a lot of the USPS supplies we needed, which helped also.  We've hopefully got a continuous stream incoming (USPS limits supply orders) and it won't be a huge issue going forward.  Inventory is dropping pretty quickly, I expect a couple of additional out of stocks by the weekend.

3/1 Update:  We are about 2-3 days out for orders placed Sunday night.  We're out of the USPS supplies we normally use to mail our packages.  We have 3 orders into USPS, but the earliest we'll see one of the necessary boxes is Tuesday.  We're working to ship creatively, but it'll take some extra time and expense. 

Another bag to look at that we have lots of stock of is the 12"x16" black ziplock bag.  It's roomy and available in good quantities and so won't have any price increases for a good while.  Stay safe everyone...time to make sure your vehicles are gassed up and you ask your Dr. for an additional month or two of any medication you may need.  Better to have it and not need than vice versa.  God Bless y'all!

2/28/20 Update:

Coronavirus has severely hampered Mylar bags supply.  First, manufacturing is not at full capacity across all of Asia.  Second, Coronavirus panic buying has caused outages across many industries, but especially those survival/prepper related.  Freeze Dried Foods, MRE's, even rice and beans at Walmart are having outages due to overwhelming demand.

This combination means that we will be experiencing shortages and out of stocks on many of our bags.  For now, our oxygen absorber supplies are holding, and so you will be able to continue to get them.  We expect to not be restocked on Mylar bags until June at the earliest.

As an FYI, one bag we do have is extremely plentiful, it is a variation of our nearly out of stock 5 mil 10"x14" and 10"x16" 1 gallon bags.  It is a standard 10"x16" 5 mil 1 gallon Aluminum Foil and Mylar bag, like all of our bags, but it is printed with beautiful designs.

For whatever reason, most preppers didn't want beautiful printed bags!=)  And so for this Mylarpocalypse, we are blessed to have a number of pallets of these available.
