Important ordering information – Adafruit is taking a 5 day break!

Pt 2431

We worked straight through the holidays for the last 60 days or so from 6am to 3am shipping kits, making kits, doing live video chats, posting in the forums – we were there, so for the next 5 days we are going to recharge our batteries and do some inventory for tax stuff.

Here is some very important information:

  • Any order placed from 1/4 to 1/8 may ship 4-5 business days *after* your order. If the item is in stock it may go out sooner.
  • Customer service emails and forum support will happen each day, likely every 6 hours, please be patient, we will get to all of them.
  • Phone calls may go to voicemail, we will be checking this every few hours – your best bet is to send an email or post in the forums for technical support as always.
  • When in doubt, email us – we’ll be around each day, we just will not be around second by second as we usually are 🙂

Thank you for a great year, we’re spending the week resting up so we can deliver more open source hardware kits at a great value to more people and make even better resources for your journey towards learning electronics and engineering.

  1. That Adafruit logo should be getting recharged by a Mintyboost 😉

  2. That’s insane! You should take a real vacation! You deserve it. 🙂

  3. No kidding, You need some maxin and chillaxin!

  4. I’ll be putting in an order soon but I want you to take a break, play with the cat, and decompress. We work to live, not live to work. So please, no rush – take time to relax.

  5. Take it easy, enjoy your friends, see something new, and know that your customers support your time off.

  6. Have a fabulous vacation! 🙂

  7. Take it easy and enjoy the time off. You deserve it!

  8. I’m sorry, I’m going into withdrawals.
    Your blog is part of my world every day,
    And with you on vacation, it’s become static.
    No, please, enjoy your well deserved vaction,
    But know that my entire world is on hold for you!
    Love you guys, Happy new year, hugs to Mosfet.

  9. Hey
    Saw you on a Make magazine video. You rock
