A couple of questions:

1. When filling out the order form on the website, how long does it take to receive feedback to make the order?

2. Once the order is made, how long after payment is made is the product sent out?

3. Where is the product being shipped from? (i.e. how long to reach southern California?)

I am working on a very tight schedule, and trying to figure out the best time to order. I promise I am not trying to be an @$$. Basically, start to finish, how long does the complete process take? Thanks!

1. I try to respond to orders as soon as I get them. If they come between 10pm-5am PDT there may be a few hours delay. My response is via email and the emails can be stuck in your Junk Mail folder.

2. The product is usually shipped the next business day after receipt of payment. Depends upon what time the payment was made (see #1).

3. Beaverton, Oregon. I ship USPS Flat Rate. Most packages reach their destination within 2-3 business days.

Thank you for the extremely fast response! I look forward to doing business with you in the near future!

One more quick question. The two 2oz bags seem to be labled incorrectly, atleast the way I view them. It would seem to me that the stick bag would be skinnier, however the dimension for it are larger than the bag. Am I interpreting it correctly, if I want a slimmer bead bag? Thanks again!

The dimensions on the FAQ page were correct and there was a typo on the Products page. The dimensions are:
  • 2 oz. bag -- Approximately 2.75" x 2.75" x .5"
  • 2 oz. soft bead stick -- Approximately 6.0" x .75" x .5"

I just spent the better part of an hour and a half reading through this entire monster. I am getting a humidor built next week from Waxing Moon and am considering using Shilala's beads as opposed to HF due to the various praises sung on CA. My main question is..

Can I use these beads to actually season a box? In other words, since this box will be brand new [Oh, and btw... I live in a desert :-D], can I just dump the beads in the humi and forget about it for a week or two? Or will the beads drop in those 2 weeks while trying to reach equilibirum? I know people say that these beads keep it at a solid RH, but I realize they try to reach an equilibrium so that makes me kinda worried. Thanks for any advice!

No season, as normal with water or a bovada pack.

I see. Well, I only got 2 65%ers.. Might have to grab 6 more for this beast of a humi if I choose to go the route of seasoning with Boveda.

No you need to get the boveda seasoning pack. I think it is 85% or something... really a shot glass of distilled water works great.
