    I want to order the VMP Cork Mat. However I would like it sometime within the next 10 days if possible. I know that when we order records they only ship during a certain time per month.

    Does the merch follow the same policy? Or would it ship sooner?

    I have never ordered gear or merch before but it is my understanding these ship in the same time frames as the records.

    I believe if you order between the 4th-14th (guessing here) they start the ship process right away. After that it gets put in the next rotm package.

    The first post says 3rd-15th so I was close. :)

    Don't bet on it though! I ordered on the 13th Jan hoping for mid cycle shipment, alas it is being bundled with this months AOTM. The ever mysterious world of VMP shipping.

    Yeah, I also think it depends on what day you ordered. If on Sat, like Jan 13, and a holiday weekend where VMP offices were closed on the 15th, it probably didn’t get into processing until the 16th.

    Yes indeed, but that doesn't help when I'm drunk ordering at 2 in the morning and want something like yesterday

    Then you shouldn't order from VMP, Amazon will be closer to what you are looking for ;)

    Oh Ive had many’s a problem with Amazon and their shipping as well.... unless you pay priority it hangs around for bleeding donkeys before finally shipping.

    After posting, I remembered you live in Ireland and so Amazon may or may not be quick
