Work Load & Construction Times
UPDATE AS OF Feb. 17, 2013
CUSTOM TACK BOOK
Feb. 13, 2017: Currently caught up on custom work. Accepting *limited* custom work.
Completed tack is ALWAYS AVAILABLE on the Production List.
Kits & Supplies are always available.
All our miniature tack is hand-crafted. Construction times vary depending on
the item ordered, new research required, development of new techniques,
sick/vacation/personal days taken, etc.
All tack is made in tack lots of more than one item. Even when making
non-identical items, this is the most
efficient means of working for The Unicorn Woman. The Construction
Times listed below are ESTIMATES and assume a full tack lot. Delivery
Time Estimates for custom orders is the Current Workload +
Construction Time + 3-4 weeks for receiving your
order/processing it/shipping it to you.
For example, assume that you placed an order for a Medieval Costume
right now. You would be looking at an ESTIMATED delivery date of
CURRENT WORKLOAD + CONSTRUCTION TIME + 3-4 WEEKS PROCESSING
July 2005 + 8-12 weeks construction + 3-4 weeks Processing =
Last Week of November 2005
When you custom order you will be notified of the ESTIMATED Delivery
Date if it will be longer than 8-10 weeks. You will also be updated if the date is changed due to
