Orders in the Normal Queue are produced on a first-in, first-out basis. At any time, you can find an estimate of how long it might take for us to produce your order by visiting https://www.thegamecrafter.com/status. Please note that orders of 10 or more copies of a game will be produced through our bulk production queue, which has its own estimated ship date.
Orders in the Urgent Queue are put first in production and sped they the process of being completed. We have an option to mark your order “Urgent” during the checkout process.

Orders that go into our Parts-Only Queue are orders where items were added to the cart using our parts page: https://www.thegamecrafter.com/parts and do not contain any custom printed items.
The Bulk Queue or BOF:
When you buy 10 or more of the same game in a single order, or use the Bulk Order Fulfillment system, those orders go into the bulk queue. The bulk queue works like our other queues in that it is first in first out. However, it is the slowest of the queues because we're processing all the large orders through it, so it can take several weeks to go through the bulk queue even though it only takes several days to go through the normal queue.
We implemented the bulk queue so that our normal queue runs more efficiently. We used to intermix them, which could create delays. This new way ensures that our entire production process is moving along more efficiently.
