Kimberly Lasher Originals will be changing the way dolls are released in 2013
From the company:
Lasher Studios 2013
This year we are changing our ordering process as to cut our wait times after ordering your doll. We will start with “Elphie”. Here is how the process will go, not on all dolls, but on this particular doll: A pre-order period of 2 weeks will be open ordering, you will have that time to make your payment in full. After that 2 week period, we will place the order with our factory. From that time it takes our factory 3-4 months to put the order in their schedule and produce this quantity of dolls. QUALITY is important: it is meticulous work and takes time. Once the dolls have been delivered to Lasher Studios, they will be inspected, sorted, dressed if necessary, carefully packaged for their new Moms, and those that ordered a custom face up will be painted, which will take an additional 1-3 weeks.
We will also be doing small editions again that Kim will be painting herself. Exclusives under an edition of 50 will be hand-painted. All information and options will always be given up front on ordering page.
