Wow...

All I can do is echo Bluesea's sentiments: I hope it all works out for you and your peers, Gameprinter.

Yes

Sorry for the bad news.

Also, I have heard several people say that one of the three big distributors has closed down. Does anyone know which distributor it was?

Distributors & Delano

Blackhawk is shut down - has been for a few months. I suppose it's just the Big 2 now.

Delano sees to be non-responsive - we had a few quotes going on with them and nothing for two weeks.

Does not look good - I heard Avalanche Press had some titles with them and had to re-source, so the rumors may be true.

Thanks, Bluesea

Thanks for your concern, Bluesea (and everyone). I've been holding off posting because there's still a bunch of stuff that's up in the air - like whether someone will be buying the game operations outright so we can get back up and running soon. Whatever the case, I hope to be able to get some information out by early next week.

Wow, especially considering that I contacted them just under a year ago about printing one of my games. At least they're saying, "closed until further notice", maybe they will re-enter the industry and brighten up our hopes. Maybe...

Me too. They can do a 500 print run and cheaper than here in Spain. A jewel.

Re: buying game operations

Keep us posted sir. Maybe someone who is in the publishing business will look long and hard about trying to their hand at the printing business and buy Delano's game division.

I'll be praying that you and your colleagues hear some good news regarding the business quickly.

Me too gameprinter. It took

Me too gameprinter.

It took 12 weeks for the business I worked for to be reopened. We then had to wait another 3 for the "recall". I don't know what was worse - knowing I had been laid off and free to look elsewhere or being in limbo waiting to see if management would "pick me".

That would be my life in a nutshell right now! :)

Delano

Hey Guys,

I was just trolling the internet today and came across this thread. Delano is still active. They were acquired by another company.

Good to know

I may hit these guys up for a quote... I am dealing with a company that deals with China... So I'm getting a pretty good price... But I am waiting for a price correction following the changes that I have made to the game.

Update: Delano still has not responded for my request for a quote on the 21 October. I sent an *check-in* e-mail on the 24 October - still no response... Although they may well be *active*, their customer service seems to be rather questionable...

Note: I did get a brief response on 21 October saying that they would look into my request for a quote. Just haven't heard anything since...

Is Delano Services still closed?

Does anyone know what the status of Delano services is?

I live in Kalamazoo MI, and according to their website they are located in Battle Creek now, so that would be an incredibly convenient 30 minutes away from me.

I got a quote from them yesterday, or maybe the day before.

They've responded to me as well

I messaged them and they responded to me as well. It seems they've moved from their previous location, but they are still up and running.

Out of curiosity, how did the quote compare to quotes from other places? I've requested a quote, but haven't heard back yet on that.
