a sure fire way to avoid delays is to not do pre-orders. just wait till the records are in hand before selling them. if a label does not have the money to release a record and they need the money from pre-orders to get the release going they should not release it, plain and simple. the biggest culprits with delays are all these new jack "labels" starting up that solely license out albums to press because it's one they loved in high school and they think it's cool to run label.
it's part of marketing a record. you want to put up the preorder when the most people are interested in buying the album. if a smaller band gets a song stream on AP.net, for example, they'll put up their preorder that day. you want to capitalize on impulse buys for the people who get interested.

Sure wish I could finally get my Anthony Raneri vinyl. I know I know "it's in the mail"
thomas at paperandplastick.com give me your order number and i'll respond with a tracking number.

because an AP.net thread is the right place to handle customer service.

not all of it can be blamed on the companies pressing the vinyl. sometimes its poor management/planning, like P+P.
would love to hear more about this. when a pressing plant takes 8-12 weeks to press a record (that is how long the delays have been this year, like Jenna said in her quote in the article), it's pretty hard to get the record in time for your street date. we could always just say "ship date TBA" in the product description, right? that way we're off the hook and no one will ever complain? wrong, people will always complain. a lot of times these things are out of the label's control. currently our flatfoot 56 records are sitting in the headquarters of a freight truck company and they left the plant over 3 weeks ago. they should have absolutely been here 2 weeks ago. they were finished being pressed 4 weeks after the target date. label owners can't control that.

Way to get all set your goals on us :)

If you can't handle a snarky comment or two about labels that take just about forever to get a record out you might not wanna check AP.net's really good article thread about the subject

And btw the it's the mail comment was aimed at p+p saying that you were waiting on the record to ship from the plant and it was being shipped then it wasn't then it was. I was Not asking for bad customer service.
i don't even understand what you're saying. the record release you're referring to is in erik's article. the plant sent us 100 less anthony raneri records than we were supposed to get so we get a replacement variant sent along with our repress and those went out immediately. the record release went off fine and on time except for the ~60 orders that we couldn't fulfill due to that mistake.
