I'm having some problems with shipping these days- BG Post seems to have dropped the ball on more than a few occasions in the past year and stuff isn't arriving. Also I just sold the last set of colors from my most recent run a few weeks ago, so-
until I can afford to get a new batch embroidered and sort out a reliable mailing option, they're discontinued.
I'm hoping it's a temporary thing.

SO....
I went to the BG Post office today with a translator to try and figure out what's going on. They handed me a copy of a stamped, official memo stating that the US Department of Homeland Security has issued an embargo on all airmail originating from Bulgaria effective from December 2010 to an undetermined date: all parcels and envelopes are now sent via "marine traffic". They wouldn't let me have a copy of the memo or make any notes from it and I can't find any reference to it online, but the woman I deal with from the PO says to expect at least 2 months for any mail delivery to the USA for the foreseeable future.

Any chance of getting a decal of the patch?  What I'd really like to have is a plaque with the patch logo on it for mounting on the bike.

We do have stickers in the Iron Gear Shop. I don't know if that is what you have in mind.  Also clocks, mugs, steins, pinback buttons and several styles of shirts.

Due to recent demand for patches I have sourced a new supplier for a small run and have just received a limited number. Because I could only do 12 sets right now the price is slightly higher: the full set of back patches is $30.00 USD including shipping. Small 4" round patches are the same price as before, $6.00 USD.
In addition I have had the top rockers done in both English (Russian Iron) and Russian (РОССИЙСКОЕ ЖЕЛЕЗО). Members ordering now MAY SPECIFY whether they want English or Russian rockers, and additional rockers may be ordered seperately for $10.00 USD. The supply is limited at the moment so it's first come first served until I'm able to get a larger run completed.
US MEMBERS PLEASE NOTE:
I have experienced problems in shipping to America over the past year due to blockages of airmail from Bulgaria by the Dept. of Homeland Security. I don't know if this is still in effect or not. Normally shipping takes about 2 weeks but in some cases it has been delayed by as much as 4-6 weeks due to delivery by freighter.
I apologize for any hassles this has caused: I know that I had to refund some of your PayPal payments but I didn't want to take anybody's money until I was sure I could deliver.
Prices include shipping. Payments may be made via Paypal to harvinc@medivision.com

Thanks folks,

I would like to get my order expedited.  Sent in order 3rd week Januarynow going on 7 weeks. Can my order be transferred to new supplier. A extra expense would be well worth it. Time to dump the Bulgarians and find a supplier that does not have to deal with homeland security. I purchase many items from GB and Germany and delivery is always less than 3weeks, usually 2.   Days boat sailor

Just received patches.  Thanks

Buy a Harley if you want immediate satisfaction; I'm pretty sure Walmart sells their patches in bulk, straight from the Chinese distributors. Hell, you don't even need to own a motorcycle...  :feelssogood:

Hail, Charlie!
Are you actually in Varna, Bulgaria?

Could these items be shipped to an address in Canada, then redirected to U.S.?
Yes, it would add to cost...

Busy running the Province of Ontario from my computer in the basement. Tough job; hard to get good help.

They seem to be going through now but it's hit or miss- some folks are getting them in a week or so, others are waiting a month. At this point I think it's just issues with the postal service, been a lot of layoffs on both ends.

harvinc@medivision.com is my PayPal account, NOT a website. You need to contact me here or by email at charvin23@gmail.com before you pay for anything though, just about finished with my current stock and have to find another source for the next run.
