Default What is your average turn around on custom orders?

I have seen a lot of online boutiques say 2-3 weeks. I always thought that was crazy. Now I currently have about 10 separate custom bow orders and i see why they say that. Most of mine have been averaging a week but two large orders one was 9 bows and the current one is 12 have taken about 10 days. Is that too long? I can really only work on bows at night after the kids are in bed. Maddie is learning to crawl now and into everything.

For me, it all depends on what and how much they order. Right now my turn around is less than a week, but I am always making bows...non-stop. My neck hurts just thinking about it.

I have 2-3 weeks on my site. I don't just have hairbows as you know, but If I have to order something or an emergency arises I have a little cushion. I try to complete it and ship as fast as I can. I know alot of clothing places such as Chez Ami and such say 4-6 weeks, but they are usually creating and customizing outfits.

I don't think it is too long espcially if you have it posted. If I know ahead of time, then I am willing to wait.
