Note that 0nly 40 alphabets can be input onto the currency and on Q cards a maximum of 25 regular sized words.

Is there any other reason a shipment could be delayed?

The customization of Currency and Q cards take time, as the game payouts have to be adjusted and the recommended words fit into the available space. Also once customization order is taken, the Q cards carry a value which needs to be balanced with the rest of the game to provide maximum satisfaction to the owner of the Entertainment Theater. Usually a trial game is played with the customers suggestion atleast once before finally printing it. In case of such customization requirements, please expect a delay of an additional 7-10 working days. (Total shipping time may extend to 20 days, but trust me its worth the wait when you have your favorite name on the currency!)
