    Does anybody have issues with reprolabels.com? I have ordered from them in the past and it takes about a month to have my orders delivered. But this time I mailed a Money Order towards the end of July and I have yet to receive anything. I e-mailed them last week and they said they will look into it but so far I have not received e-mails back from them. I just needed to get that out.

    I have. I ordered some back in April and didn't receive them until June. Have bought from them ever since. It took them forever to answer e-mails also.

    Reprolabels are awesome. People fail to understand that they're very popular and are swamped with orders, thus making it take longer for your stuff to arrive and e-mails to get answered. Be patient :)

    Never had any problems, with multiple orders going back 4-5 years.

    Never had any problems with them. Its just they are not Hasbro or a big company, so it takes them time to get the stuff out.

    And isn't it ran by a small group of people? Hell I think maybe even 1-3??

    There's only a handful of people there, and it's not a mammoth operation. They can take a little while, but no complaints. They do the business, and of course not everyone on teh interwebs can deliver a) by tomorrow or b) on a strict timetable worldwide :) 

    If you've contacted them anyway, that should be plenty of poke.

    I placed some pretty big orders with them this spring, and a couple of sets were missing from one. They took care of me happily once I let them know I still needed part of my order.

    It would be nice to get a quicker turnaround but I'm always very happy with the finished product. I wouldn't want them quicker if it affected quality at all. These toys are 20-plus years old, they can wait another two weeks. :p

    Yeah, they take that long. I see these threads all the time. I've ordered from them before and recieved my stickers a little over a month later. My brother ordered from them a lot and they always seem to take that long just to add another personal testimonial.

    While I think their products are super-fantastic-awesome-bitchin'-explosion, frankly the length of time it takes for them to arrive has kept me from going back. When they finally arrive, I pretty much don't care at that point.

    They should really look into getting a pal or two to help them to pump their stuff out faster and they'd be getting tons more business (mine anyway).

    Most times they are better than the original stickers. Thicker paper, brighter colors, more precisely cut.

    Theyve also recently upgraded equipment, so they can get really cool effects like raised faction symbols on stickers now.

    As has been said, its a very small number of people running the site, and as a side business, so they can get swamped very quickly. Also, it sometimes takes a while to ship from Canada to the US, where they are, increasing the time (thanks, US/CAN Border). With quality like theirs, Im sure they get a lot of business, but in such a niche market I doubt its enough to hire more staff without needing to raise their prices.

    Its an unfortunate tradeoff, but their stuff is well worth the wait.
