I got a print notice this morning. I think they've rewritten their print notice and maybe restructured their workflow. Interesting! I should expect Terry next week! Eep!

oh? What does the print notice say now?

YAY! I'm impatiently awaiting my MFY boy. *sigh* I was expecting him tomorrow after today's wrong delivery shenanagins but looking at tracking, DHL haven't picked him up from the lab so I really don't know. I mean, it's nearly 9pm, I doubt they'd pick up post that late.

Sulk sulk sulk.

Husband's girl went to print too, she'll be the same batch as Terry then! heh. I cannot for the life of me spell her name though.

Is your hubbies girl in your makies or does he have his own account? I wanna nose! 

Evelynn went to print last week, a week ago today actually, no updates yet! I'm guessing there'll be a delay 'cause of the bank holiday weekend, but I'm hoping fingers crossed she'll come on Saturday, that way there'll definitely be someone here...otherwise I'll have to write them a note.  Are the DHL packages tracked? So I'll know what day they come on?

His account, which is um... https://mymakie.com/people/cypherdorran/ there.

Oo yeah, I find that once they go to print it usually takes about 10 days (not the week they claim) to come back. They're usually pretty good on the 14 day thing, give or take a day. But the bank holiday may bork that. I know it delayed one of my girls, she ended up shipping the day before another one who was ordered a week later!
DHL parcels are indeed tracked, and they take 24 hours but they don't deliver sat/sun. So if they dispatch thurs, you'll have by fri but if they dispatch fri, you gotta wait till monday. AGONY!
Fizz did arrive on a sunday though, but that was really odd and i've no idea why they were working sunday when they don't tend to. maybe they had backlog.

But yeah, they track and their customer service team are fairly good at finding out where the van is if you nag them enough hahah. (not that I.. nag dhl constantly.. nooo <_< >_>)

Oh that's good then, but they don't have an estimated time of delivery then? So it could come at any time of day? D: UGH WORK.

Which girl did he order? Chausuki?

Yes Chau, who's name is difficult to remember how to spell lol. She should be cute.

And noooo, no estimated time. But you can send them a message on twitter (pm them) and tell them where to leave it that's safe. Or leave a note on the door but that always makes me a bit anxious because it advertises that nobody's home.
Still, they seem to be pretty good about leaving it with neighbours if you ask them to. I've gotten to meet a fair few random neighbours as a result lol.

I had trouble with that, so I called them. They were willing to reroute to my work for free. I've been very happy with DHL so far.

Here is the old message:

The lovely design you created on MyMakie.com has been sent to our printers. I know, exciting isn't it? Pretty soon your beautiful creation will emerge from the 3D printer, be dusted and hosed down and will then get on a speedy bicycle* and be zoomed across London to be assembled in our tiny workshop. We'll email you again once your Makie is ready to ship.

You've still got time to order more clothing and accessories too! Head to the store: https://mymakie.com/shop

Thanks for buying a Makie!


From the Makielab Team in London

*Makies can't ride bikes yet so the courier will do the cycling, while your Makie takes in the view!

And this is what I got today:

The lovely Makie you designed is now being made real. I know, exciting isn't it?
In about 24 hours, all the parts will emerge from the 3D printer, jump into a box and journey back to our little Lab. Then we’ll assemble, dress and pack your Makie for shipping.
When we ship your order, about one week from now, we’ll send you another email containing the tracking number, which you can use to keep an eye on your parcel as it makes its way to you.
Thanks again for ordering a Makie! We’re super excited to meet her or him too. Smile
Counting the days,

Team MakieLab

I've removed the details specific to my purchase. But they're also using my real name now, instead of my login name!

I've never been able to work out how many makies are in each print batch, nor how often they print a batch. It's at least twice a week, if not more. Sometimes there's odd delays. Lirel went AWOL for a bit when I ordered her. she got left off the print queue or something, but she still got rushed back to the lab once she WAS printed and arrived on time. I think she stole Zhi's lift as he had to wait till the following day lol. poor guy.

oh sometimes that happens, someone else has a similar issue where they never get the emails. It's strange. I wonder if the provider just like... decides to block them without telling anyone. But yay! Hopefully she'll dispatch asap!

Wow I can't wait to see Terry in nylon. I'm really curious how her face will turn out. Very Happy I thinks that's one of the best parts of makies. If you talk to other makie owners about your impending doll, they feel your joy and excitement.

It's a week tomorrow since I've heard that Terry went to print. I expect I'll have an email about her tomorrow. Maybe. But someone is having reservations about Terry. Poor Lizzie. Their namesakes didn't get along: Terry used to hiss at and try to bite Lizzie.



I guess I'm excited enough for both of us. I'm not so sure Terry will be as bad as Lizzie is thinking.

I'd say it's usually 3-4 days. I expect to get her Thursday or Friday even though the tracking says tomorrow. If I'm pushed for a guess, I'd say Thursday is more likely.

exciting! Wait... was yours in the same batch as hubbys? I wonder if that means Chau will be back from the printer. I guess i'll know when he gets on his laptop after dinner hah.
He's told me i'm not allowed to sneak a peak at her before he gets home. Spoilsport.

I'm jealous.

I'm not sure, he can't remember hah. He's useless like that. But not long to go now I don't think. She went to print on the 7th. So any day now heh.

They're the same batch then. That's when Terry went to print. Cool, they're sisters!

Apparently she's back, but skulking around the labs still hah. Hopefully she'll be here before friday.
But then I think I really won't be able to contain my desire for another. I'll be so so jealous. *pout* I need money... fast. <_< >_>
