Timeline (how long your order took to process)
: From initial contact to final delivery, I'd say about seven weeks.
(Most of that was hashing out details of size, design, etc., with a wait of about two weeks to let payment clear before actual production started.)
Describe your Experience. Pros, Cons, Comments.
Pros: The Hag was a very pleasant to work with, and most professional as well. She kept me updated on the status of the project, and working out the details of the patch designs was a fairly simple process.
Cons: Contact was a little spotty in the beginning, but I think that was mainly due to my primary email provider silently discarding The Hag's emails. Fortunately, my backup email worked just fine.
Comments: I chose to get three of each design made - two for use, and one as a backup (in case something happened to one of the two primary patches).
Final Grade: A+ - would definitely work with The Hag in future!
