Orders Begin Leaving our Warehouse on Tuesday, January 3

In 2016, New Year’s Day happened to fall on a Sunday. In observance of New Years Day, the US Post Office does not ship on Monday, January 2.  

That said, staff will begin packing more than 300 orders that were placed since the Attack on Wakeup sale began. Orders will begin shipping on Tuesday, January 3.  Please note that we ask for at least 2-3 business days to process orders, sometimes more following holidays or big sales like ATOW.  If you ordered a custom artwork, we ask for at least 5-7 business days to process. You may see USPS tracking appear by email notification.  Because of the holiday observance, please allow at least 48 hours for tracking to appear on USPS.com.

A Small Business Milestone

As we enter our seventh year, I’d like to share a bit of news: Jenni called me over while in the warehouse to mention this, and I took a quick shot of the monitor on my phone.

Just recently, thanks to you, FA earned just over $1 million in revenue this year.  

It’s quite important explain that revenue and profit are two separate things – there are still plenty of costs associated with running a business, so profit is just a small part of revenue. By no means am I driving a splashy Mercedes in light of these numbers.  For a small 5-person business that is FA, however, this is encouraging.

Finally, I realize that other arcade parts stores that have existed longer than FA have likely reached this – perhaps they are laughing at this amount. It’s no matter to me – I’m glad that players like you enjoy shopping with us enough to make this a great year, and wanted to share with my utmost appreciation for your support.

For FA to continue, I think it’s important to think about additional ways we can serve you.  I have some ideas that I’m looking forward to sharing with you in the coming weeks.  Let’s hope that 2017 is a good year for each of us.
