I have been waiting in the UK for more than 5 weeks for stickers from a stateside supplier. This is delaying the completion of my build.

Has anyone had to wait longer than this? Are there any suppliers closer to home (UK/Europe) you can recommend?

Please post only factual wait times or positive opinions :) . If you want to inform me of a negative experience please PM.

(I am assuming is it cubesmith?)

My past order from there took 1 week exactly to reach the UK. I was very impressed.
You can maybe buy vinyl sheets from a local art shop?

I think what you ordered could be back ordered or something. 5 weeks, 5x what it took for me - it's gotta be?

Remember, international mail can always be delayed by customs and whatnot. Look at his FAQ, and he says that it sometimes takes up to 8 weeks. Just because it did take a week for one person doesn't mean it will always take a week.

Depending on the order it will be a normal envelope, I wouldn't expect that to get delayed but maybe I don't know how the system works.

Have you tried contacting the place you ordered them from? If it is cubesmith, I'm surprised. Chris is usually very quick to turn orders around. I've ordered loads of stuff from him, and I've never had to wait more than a few days. Of course I'm in the States, but I'm across the country from him.

Thanks for these comments. I have contacted the supplier and unfortunately I have to wait for the 8 weeks to elapse. Meanwhile I've ordered some from elsewhere as I am keen to finish my projects.
