Coronavirus sucks - it's uncharted territory for everyone and by now you are probably exhausted by the anxiety of it all. While we don't want to overwhelm you with content, we do want to let you know how we're dealing with COVID-19 at Rudie Lee.
We write this as a small family business with a great team (some who have been with us since 1997!) who we are worried about physically, mentally and financially. We are doing what we can to keep collective spirits up for you, our team and our community.
For the first time since 1986, we have to close our doors to the public. To keep our staff safe and healthy, we have closed our art studio and print shop to the public but continue to fulfill online orders.
COVID-19 barriers & signage
We've had the desire to help and offer our services to the medical community and the public. While we badly wish we could manufacture masks and gloves for our medical heroes, we looked at our community and saw a few needs we could fulfill with our fabrication capabilities. You can see our line of barriers and positive signage here. It is our hope that these offerings will help keep the public safe and uplift the spirits with a little positive messaging.
There's no place like home
As we are all spending more time at home, we hope that you are enjoying your spaces. We encourage you to refresh your space into the sanctuary you envision for yourself. We will continue to share inspirational Rudie Lee content that we hope will drop a dose of beauty and joy into your day and space.
Can I continue to order online? Will there be any delayed deliveries?
Every order is precious to us and we are still fulfilling orders. We welcome you to shop as much as you want on our website but as the situation is complicated and rapidly evolving, there is likely to be delays. Our main shipper of choice, UPS, is reporting delays in shipping as logistics are becoming complicated with store and border closures. That said, 90% of our orders are arriving within the regular delivery window that UPS typically guarantees.
If you need an order in a rush, please contact us directly.
Does Rudie Lee packaging present any risk?
All products at our studio are handled in accordance to the strictest sanitation measures however, once outside of our studio, the number of hands involved become out of our control. We recommend you follow the CDC's disinfection guidelines when bringing any package into your home.
Who can help me if I have questions about my order or a product?
Our staff continues to work from home during normal business hours. As always, feel free to email us firstname.lastname@example.org or DM us at rudie.lee
Our thoughts continue to be with the safety and health of our employees, customers, and the world.
