Well, I have waited 2-4 weeks for custom embroideries before.

How long would you think for two diapers? No shipping (in town).

If their wait isn't posted, I would say two weeks. However, if they do a ton of business, then I would say longer. Except for Preston Pants though, I have not waited longer than weeks for diapers.

2 weeks unless a special fabric was ordered or something.

Okay, yeah. I'm annoyed. Going on 5 weeks now. She claims they are done, but somehow I keep having problems receiving them. This is a friend too, but it is an actual business. I hate to say it, but I don't think I'll be ordeing from her again.

Or as long as communication is kept up.

Unhappy Re: How long do you usually wait for custom orders?

Waiting is the worst!!!!!!!!! As a PP mentioned, if they don't say otherwise, 2 weeks sounds reasonable ( ). I got a HL custom within a week. But I am currently waiting on two custom diapers that were ordered about the same time frame, from elsewhere.

If it has been more than two weeks, and I am assuming that it has been, then I would e-mail her and get an ETA. Or so up at her shop and bug her until they are done!

Good luck!

I can tell you from getting customs myself, waiting is the absolute WORST!

I think the longest I had to wait, with the shipping time of course - from start to finish was 6 weeks.

I think as long as communication is there, then I don't have a problem

Re: How long do you usually wait for custom orders?

I feel bad. I don't want to be rude about it. It's awkward because if she wasn't a friend, I would be more vocal, but I keep accepting her excuses or lack of communication. Every time I call the phone either rings and rings forever, or one of her kids answers and goes and gets her. I feel like I'm getting the brush off. And twice now she said she would deliver them and then just never shows, no phone call or email or anything. Today when I called, after three tries her youngest picked up and gave the phone to her, and she told me that her car died and she would have to wait until her DH got home. If that's true, and I hope it is, why couldn't she just call? I left an outing early and skipped going to the grocery store just to be home, and I had given her my cell number. There's no reason she couldn't have told me she couldn't come right then. I had even offered to pick them up last night, but she told her daughter to tell me she was busy.

I really don't like getting the run around. If they are done, there should be no reason I don't have them. I paid good money for them. Much more than DH was comfortable with. I just want my diapers. I've seen her work and it looks good. I don't want to say anything against her business on here or anything. I just want my diapers!
