Winter has arrived and so have new product announcements! We are finally seeing some big updates on production and ship dates! We are doing our best to be as transparent as possible through these posts on product timelines. If there is anything that you are in need of please reach out and we can add it to our list of production plans!
- Standard Grade Drawers – In-Stock and ready to ship! Styles returning includes Cornell and Cal Academy. We improved our old design with stronger corners and increased padding for higher protection during shipping.
- Glass Genitalia Vials – In-Stock and ready to ship.
- Plastic Genitalia Vials – Smaller 4mm version In-Stock and ready to ship. After some customer feedback, the current black silicone toppers have a shorter base which makes creating an airtight seal difficult for some users.
