OLD PREORDER EMAILS (Pre-Nov25-2014) HAVE BEEN KEPT (Grandfathered)
THOSE EMAILS WILL REMAIN UNDER THE OLD SYSTEM, AND WHEN THOSE RUNS COME UP, FOLKS WILL BE CONTACTED

PREORDER RULES - DETAIL


CUSTOMER OBLIGATION

- you are making a promise, which we will consider an official (pre)order.

- your word will be considered good, and it's all we need.  Thanks.

- at this point, no money down, no deposits - we don't need seed money or financing.

- at release time, you are promising to purchase the playfield(s) you signed up for.



CLASSIC PLAYFIELDS' OBLIGATION

- To make a playfield for every promised buyer (no more "sold outs" or "ran outs" for those on the list).

- To produce the playfield you signed up for within 12-18 months of the Inbox opening - not 3-4 years anymore.

- You can now preorder more than one playfield, and we owe you that number at release.

- CPR will provide a $50 discounted price to Preorder customers, as a bonus for your commitment.
Plus, the Preorder group is always served first (first dibs - Golds, Silvers).
Leftovers (if) available after that (Silvers, Bronzes), are sold at regular prices to the general public.




BACKING OUT / FORFEITURE

- If one must bail, there IS time for that, without consequence.  Up until production (the last 2-3 months just before release), the
Inbox here will remain open.  Simply email again into the applicable Inbox, message titled "FORFEIT", and state your forfeiture.
We will simply subtract your playfield(s) from the run length - no harm, no foul, no wasted time or materials for CPR.

Once we begin production of a playfield run, that applicable Inbox will be marked "Closed" when CNC cutting starts.
We will no longer be accepting forfeits, as it's simply too late for that. The "cake is baking in the oven" at that point.


-
Forfeiters at shipping time will simply be removed from the rolls in all Inboxes, and will not be welcome to sign up
in the promise-based deposit-free Preorder process again.  We WILL forgive some DIRE circumstances

One CAN still preorder after being a Forfeiter, but it will require a $100 non-refundable deposit to accompany each signup.
Those folks can sign up via email (contact us at the general inbox) and we will forward you a PayPal invoice.



- If CPR breaks the 18 month window without completing the run - CPR will have broken our side of the bargain, and
following through on completing that playfield purchase will no longer be an obligation.  Everybody will still be sent instructions
at release time, but the ability to freely wave off the order last minute will be in effect (like the old system, the last 10 years).

- Multiples matter.  "3 playfields please" will be considered such. Dropping to only one at release is also considered a forfeiture.


- - - - - -



This preorder system operates on good faith (your good word) without CPR having to get into taking deposits and sitting on your money.
The hobby is a small enough world, where "your word is your bond", and it shouldn't need to get any more complicated than that.

This will allow CPR to put our resources to the best use & efficiency from now on - meaning we can move through runs faster, and not spend
resources making 30-40 orphaned playfields per run that we thought had customers - but end up having customers wave them off last minute.


Now CPR can plan a whole lot better, and thus those signing-up should plan a whole lot better too.
