My customers are seriously the best. I recently had a very large order placed. It made my queue basically 6 months long. I was going though my queue the fairest way, by ‘first in first out’. The customer who placed the large order said that I could work on other commissions while he is waiting for his. So that got me to thinking of the best way to do that, while still keeping the waiting fair.
I will be going though the queue first in first out until I hit orders of 8 cards of more. When a I get to a large order in the queue I’ll alternate between the two lines.
This will allow the smaller orders to not have to wait as long for a few cards.
If, for whatever reason, this does not work out I’ll be going back to the first in first out. I don’t really foresee an issue with this.
