---------- FAQ Sampler: What's all this PULLBOX malarky?----------

Pullbox is our preorder notification system: When we receive your orders at the shop we mark them as received in Pullbox which notifies you that your order has arrived at MK1 - no more waiting for us to contact you.  

You can use Pullbox to preorder items or you can email/message MK1 requests and we will keep pullbox updated for you.  Pullbox doesn't have to be complicated - it's really just our means of letting you know what has arrived at the shop as it arrives at the shop - plus a one stop place where you can see at any time what MK1 has on order for you. Some customers like to be able to order specific covers and manage their subscriptions themselves - Pullbox lets them do that. Some customers prefer to email me instructions - that works as well - but it will be Pullbox that notifies customers as their orders arrive.
