    All those who ordered blue, green, or pink have been delayed due to backorders. Blue and green will ship by the 29th and pink is back ordered until June. Ordered as my crown is scratched.

    My sport crown is scratched, so I ordered them to cover it up. I couldn't find any alternatives and had a 25% discount so I thought, why not?

    Maybe they misplaced their hole punch :confused:

    Ok, first I explained why the problem is. Second of all, these sarcastic comments (not yours - I appreciate the joke) aren't helping, I have a valid reason for use.

    Just to clarify:

    I'm cool. :cool:

    Don't get so defensive, he was just joking around so calm down.

    I really can't believe that these are backordered, I never would have thought there would have been that much intrest in them honestly!

    Don't worry, I'm cool :cool:. I just got slated a lot by people for this. I also got tired of people asking "Why?". I honestly never expected that much intrest either!

    Backorder doesn't necessarily indicate interest. They could have received 5 orders and not been able to ship any yet (because of the missing hole punch), so they're all backordered.

    :D. Never thought of it like that, but I assumed they would of got some attention, especially as some colours are delayed and some are not (maybe they ran out of coloured paper to hole punch).

    I know they are expensive for what they are, but I had a use for them and a 25% discount. Could you show me something else that could be cut properly to the right size, be strong enough and support adhesives ( not a hole puncher)?

    You're right that you probably wouldn't be able to make these for less than what they're selling. It's just that they invested about $35 on custom hole punch sets based on the publicly available watch diagrams from apple. It then costs them maybe $0.10 to make each set. Good for them, I guess.

    You do get 4 per order (3 dots of your choice and one random). And this is from there FAQ
    I don't know what that means but instead of using a "Plotter" -

    I was informed via email this last Saturday, that my Red WatchDot's had been dispatched, now it's just a waiting game for the international postage from the U.S. to the UK.

    UK here as well, do you mind posting pictures and telling me how long it took for you to get the parcel from dispatch?

    Mine was about 5 days in the U.S..

    I haven't picked them up yet, I'll get them this afternoon, but they got here on Monday and were shipped out the week before some time. Trying out the red.

    Hello you guys. My wife has a silhouette cameo that she likes to use to cut paper and vinyl so I gave it a try in gold and mint color. It's what she had laying around.

    For those of you who don't want to wait, or others who want a larger selection of color choices, you can buy the same thing from Slick Wraps - and you'll have the wrap just as an added bonus.

    It will only come with 2 sets of dots, but it's still cheaper and you can choose from a larger variety.

    According to the post mark, the WatchDot's were posted on the 21/5 and I got them on the 27/5 (6 calendar days, but only 4 working days)

    Thanks! There was a bank holiday as well so that may be a factor.

    They look pretty good!
