Got a e-mail message about a problem with the Journey JPs:
The status of your Journey vinyl order.
Last week iam8bit received thousands of completed Journey vinyl sets straight from the plant, on time as planned.
Upon reviewing a few of the vinyl, we discovered a quality control issue that prompted us to systematically go through the records box by box. We unfortunately found the problem to be consistent and widespread throughout the run.
iam8bit has a reputation for releasing quality, upstanding products, so to us… this defect is unacceptable.
Luckily, this discovery, though disheartening, was made before sending you an unsatisfactory product. While we were super excited to ship the Journey vinyl last week, we have no choice but to delay shipping until the plant can deliver a version that meets our high standards. We do not have a specific date of completion yet, but we expect an update very soon. You will NOT be waiting an excessive amount of time - that is certain.
We understand that many of you have been eagerly awaiting your vinyl and we humbly apologize for this delay. As a tissue with which to soak up your disappointment, and as a thank you for your patience, we’d like to offer you a 20% discount on a future iam8bit purchase. Please expect a personalized discount code to be emailed to you by late next week.
I'm not upset or anything myself. Depending on how the situation goes I may be selling off the copy I ordered because things with the person I ordered it for have kind of hit the rocks. However, please don't take this as a guarantee of that.
