  1. Our World Globe Universe customers continue to be affected by processing delays on Replogle Globe orders. In spite of their ongoing efforts to return to pre move inventory levels, Replogle Globes continues to experience inventory shortages on many of their products. Replogle is currently quoting a 3 to 4 week lead time on all globe orders. Our experience is somewhat better on in stock items, with products typically shipping within 10 days to 2 weeks. Unfortunately, many Replogle Globes continue to be out of stock and are subject to the 3 to 4 week lead time for production and shipping.

    Special order items, such as globe upgrades and replacement parts are currently experiencing a 4 to 8 week lead time for production and shipping.

    We continue to work closely with Replogle Globes and hope the inventory shortages will be alleviated by midsummer.

  2. On May 26, 2011, Herff Jones announced the closure of the Spherical Concepts Division and the discontinuance of the Artline Brand. The closure is effective May 31, 2011.

    With less than 1 week notice to the Spherical Concepts dealers, Herff Jones closed down the Spherical Concepts Division which they acquired in 2007. The remaining inventory from Spherical Concepts was turned over to the Cram Globe Division at Herff Jones where the inventory is being sold on a first come first served basis.

    How does this action affect you, our World Globe Universe customer? The bottom line is, there is a limited number of Artline Globes left in inventory at the Cram Globe Division and in our own warehouse. As the inventory is exhausted the products will be pulled from our active sales pages and placed in the discontinued products archive.

    For a more detailed look at the impacts of the closure of Spherical Concepts and the discontinuance of the Artline Brand, we invite you to read the article; Where did they go? The disappearing US globe manufacturers
