Dispatch update 25/03, and new harness boards have arrived!
This morning was my first test of the new Post Office opening hours, and it wasn't too bad all things considered. They sadly can't take my parcels prior to the opening hours now, which does mean travelling there during their business hours which does effect how easy it is to dispatch my orders going forward. They're limiting the post office to 2 people inside at a time, so the queue is now outside with everyone standing at least 2 meters apart. It was a weird experience, and to be honest I'd rather not be queuing, but it's all within guidelines and other than one person this time, everyone was abiding by them. We live in a fairly small area so it wasn't like the supermarket scenes we've seen on the news lol, only 4 people I think this morning. I'll re-address each day though if this approach doesn't feel safe to me, seeing as the UPS courier collection at my home address went smoothly with next to no interaction between myself and the driver and no need for me to be standing in a queue. It may be an option I look at next if the post office continues to be busy.. We shall see. For now though, shipping as normal, any orders placed each day should be shipped the following day and I'm currently working hard to ensure harness orders are made on the same day just in case full lock-down happens and I can't ship.

On the subject of harnesses, my new mounting boards arrived and I'm beyond happy with them! They look far far neater than my previous MDF items, the material is very strong, particularly as it has a pretty minor task of simply holding the harness captive due to the shipping box now being much more sturdy. The laser etched branding looks great and most importantly, they are made from recycled material and can be put in your recycling boxes at home which I'm over the moon about.
As I mentioned briefly the other day, it will be a little while before I have completely depleted my stock of the old MDF boards, but hopefully can begin introducing these new ones very soon. It has been a long task sourcing a recyclable alternative and I'm so happy with the results.
