available for pre-order at Newburycomics (US only)
Brock, which store did you order from?
I was worried about this when I saw the huge quantity that Newbury sold -
Though they originally said that they were expecting all of these to go out around release day, they have now said that they are receiving them in batches from Katy's team, and dispatching them as they arrive.
I've become a pessimist after all of these preorders with seemingly infinite delays, but I'm really hoping she had all of these booklets pre-signed BEFORE the stores were told their allocations. Especially because she's only shown 1 box of signed booklets (~800) on social media. Every other thing I've seen (starting in late July and as late as August 16th) has been the artcard inserts and not booklets.
Just to let everyone know U.K. store sent me the following email (looks like they oversold/are now shipping in batches):-
Thank you for your email.
Please accept my apologies for the delay.
I am afraid we are still awaiting delivery of the Katy Perry - Art Card you have ordered.
I can confirm that we are chasing the label for any update as to when we can expect this to arrive although at this time we do not have an exact date.
As soon as stock arrives we will ship all orders and you will be sent an email confirmation. Should you no longer wish to wait, please let us know and we can cancel this from your order for you.
Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
I received mine yesterday from Newbury Records. It looks good.
Still no dispatch info for my Newbury order (status on the website says "Unfulfilled"). No notification from my Californian post office box provider either (that it might have arrived there). Anybody else still waiting for dispatch by Newbury? Just a delay?
I emailed Newbury yesterday, and this was the response:
Thanks for your email. Katy's team have been sending over shipments of the autographed booklets in batches, and we've been shipping orders out as soon as possible after receiving them. Thanks for your patience and understanding as we get the orders processed. You will receive a shipping confirmation email with tracking once your order has shipped.
Please feel free to reach out with any additional questions or concerns, and thank you for shopping with newburycomics.com!
Hate to say it, but if Newbury doesn't have it, I'm not sure if/when we're going to get it.
Thanks for posting the response, good to know anyway :)
I received the same reply 2 days ago I hope we see the cds
Has anyone who purchased one from the US KP store gotten theirs yet? I see a lot of US folks who got them from Newbury, and a lot of EU/UK folks who've gotten them from the UK KP store, but I don't know if I've seen any delivered US store orders.
