Dear JHD Retailers,

We hope you are as excited as we are when we launch new products and colors. Giving you a sneak peak of the products and enabling you to pre-order is intended to allow you to prepare and order inventory sooner. The product launch date that we share with you, is the launch date… no sooner. Please be considerate of the dates we provide and do not share the products publicly until the actual launch dateForgive us if we haven’t been clear about this in the past.  We will ensure that we are going forward.

Thank you, 

JHD Family

EMAILED 12/10/20: Check your email for an update from our Jon Hart President Sharon Durham 


This comes much earlier than what we expected, but we've done the math and it looks like we are going to be busy sewing current orders until Christmas. Therefore, for any new orders placed for out-of-stock items placed after today, Monday Nov. 16th, will not be guaranteed for Christmas.

  • We realize that this information is coming with short notice. If you have existing customer orders that you have not placed, please place them by midnight tonight, Monday Nov. 16th.   
  • If the website indicates that the item you need is out-of-stock today, you can still place the order and we will modify it in order to guarantee it for Christmas.  If for whatever reason we can't guarantee an item that you order today, we will contact you with options. 
  • After midnight tonight, new orders for out-of-stock items will not be guaranteed for Christmas 

Questions you may have?

What contributed to this situation? All of the following anomalies have created interdependent consequences for both Jon Hart and our material suppliers.

  • COVID-19 manufacturing safety mandates 
  • Several supply-chain shortages and delays
  • Transit delays between suppliers
  • Atypical seasonality of sales 
  • Higher than normal product demand 

Are my previous orders at risk?  No.
We are taking these measures in order to ensure that we can fulfill all existing and promised orders.

EMAILED 10/29/20: Important JHD News

We’d like to give y’all a quick update on our continued efforts to maintain the highest availability of Leopard. As you may have gathered from previous posts on the bulletin, some of our raw material suppliers continue to have supply chain issues and are doing their best to provide what we need at the pace we need it. Unfortunately, it’s not fast enough. In order to avoid continued extension of fulfillment timelines for Leopard, we have decided to put select Leopard items on a no guarantee for Christmas delivery list. These are all items that require a significant amount of material or the patterns result in higher material waste. We hope you understand and will only add to this list if we feel it’s critical.


Please visit the JH Bulletin for Leopard products that may not be available for Christmas going forward.


Also, we’d like to remind you about the colored leather transition. At this point Steel & Pistachio smooth leather is phasing out and transitioning to a new leather with a softer hand and subtle texture. During this transition we will denote on the website if the leather will be smooth or textured for each product. Eventually, all colored leathers will be textured.
Leopard no guarantee for Christmas delivery list:
  • 360 Carry On Wheels 
  • 360 Large Wheels 
  • Southtown 
  • Tyler Tote 
  • Cooler 
  • Two Suiter 
  • Large Cooler 
  • Mainliner 
  • 50" Garment Bag  
  • Bebita

10/22/20: Now until the beginning of 2021 be sure to check inventory on all Pistachio items, as quantities are limited. 

10/21/20: Please continue to check each product on the website as we will be changing the website to reflect early December for future orders of Leopard based on supply chain delay. 

                10/12/20: Looks like some Christmas magic came early! We expect to have more Leopard material in 2 weeks putting us at 2-4 weeks for all leopard items.

                10/09/20: WOW! The popularity of Leopard is unprecedented in Jon Hart history. We are closely managing our current material levels while we anxiously wait for more from our material fabricator. As a precaution, we are warning all 

                 retailers and customers that many items in Leopard may have extended timelines. We've put together a list of what we have available and what we are already sewing for inventory. Everything else in Leopard is being made to order

                 while we work with our supplier to get as much of our material as we can as soon as we can.

Holiday Remons & Repairs Timeline

Nov 1-Nov 15: 2-4 Weeks

After Nov 15: 4-8 Weeks

As orders come faster, RA's get slower. These are our expected turn-around times for elective repairs and remons. We'd prefer you wait until after the holidays to send in anything that isnt urgent. Thank you.

Dec 1st:  We may begin limiting product availability for larger items based on sewing capacity.  Check website before taking new orders.

Important Updates:

  • The 615 Bottle Basket is on promotion and available while supplies last.  We will be discontinuing this item as soon as we run out of baskets. We are working on a replacement product for 2021.

  • The 205 Becky & 206 Clear Becky will be discontinued in 2021.

  • We’re beginning our transition from smooth colored leather to one with a softer hand subtle texture.  During this transition we will denote on the website if the leather will be smooth or textured for each product.  We expect the first color transition to be Steel within the next couple of months.  Eventually, all colored leathers will be textured.

August 2020 Updates & New Color Launch

Gulf Coast retailers

  • If you need us to hold your shipments or help you remotely, contact customer service and we’ll do whatever we can to help.

Average Turnaround Times:  

  • On average, July’s turnaround time was 13 days.  

  • We expect that it will be less than 10 days in August.  

  • Our goal is 7 days for September 

Missing or damaged items

  • It shouldn’t happen, but on occasion it does
  • If you believe you have missing or damaged items, please notify us within 30 days of receiving the shipment

Planned Product Modifications (Between now and the end of the year you may notice a few small differences)

  • ID Wallet

  • Oiled Leather Executive folder

  • Clear Backpack

Oiled Leather

  • If you haven’t watched the video on oiled leather, please do so here.   

  • CAUTION: The dyes & waxes that are used in the development of oiled leather, can migrate to other porous leathers if they have significant pressure or contact over time.  We are shipping all oiled leather products in plastic bags to ensure that there is no migration during shipment or while packed.  Please be cautious of this when you are displaying or storing your items.  

Tricky Monograms

  • Certain letter combos in Traditional Monograms can create illusions and play tricks on your eyes.
  •  We’ve pulled together some examples of Traditional Monograms that cause people to question the spacing or position of letters.  This is a good resource to help customers determine if they are going to be happy with the final result.  See examples here.

Repatches and Remonos

  • Please remember that all returns/remonos require an authorization number before we can accept them
  • Items sent to us that were not authorized and/or are on this list will be returned to you. 

Upcoming Color Launch:

  • Pre-order for the new color will begin on Sept. 1st

  • Shipping of the new color will begin on Sept. 4th

  • The new color will launch publicly on Sept. 10th  (do not display or advertise until Sept. 10th)

  • Important Tips:

    • We want to get the new color to you as soon as possible.  If you place an order specifically for it (with no other colors) we can typically ship it faster

    • Marking the order as “Ship Complete” could slow your order.  We will make every effort to ship all items in an order together, but you may want to allow “Ship & Backorder” for your new color orders.

POSTED 7/14/20:  

An important note about Oiled Leather.

Unlike our natural leather, oiled leather is treated with dye and waxes.   If you store or stack oiled leather with other porous leathers for an extended amount of time (several days or more), the dye can migrate to other leathers.  We are shipping all oiled leather products in a plastic bags to ensure that there is no migration during shipment or while packed in the box.  Please be cautious of this possibility when you are storing or displaying your items.

POSTED 8/4/20:


  • JH Messenger Bag
  • JH Two Suiter 
  • 360 Carry On Wheels (redesigned) 
  • 360 Large Wheels + Garment Sleeve (redesigned) 
  • Bird Bag (Redesigned) 

Items can be found under "New Items" tab (you must be logged onto retail account). These items will be launched to the public Aug. 17th. 

POSTED 7/17/20:  

All laundry bags will now come with a natural patch.  Olive and Khaki previously came with an oiled leather patch.  Please contact customer service for any orders that have already been placed and require an oiled leather patch.

POSTED 7/13/20: 

We’ve added a couple more links to the persistent links section above… 

  • list of items that we use daily to clean or trim our products.  You probably have some of these items already.
  • A full list of items that have re-monogramming restrictions or limitations.  We sent a list to you last year and have recently updated it.  If you are a hot-stamper and need to re-patch an item on this list due to a hot-stamp mistake, please contact returns for options.


Over the last year we have transitioned our coated canvas fabric purchasing to primarily one American manufacturer. As a result, one color in particular is a different shade.

Although it’s not unusual to have some color variation between production runs, the Red material difference is significant. The previous red (travel kit on top) has been replaced by a more vibrant red (Frio on bottom). We only have a handful of items in inventory with the previous red.

If you have customers that are long-time red collectors, you may want to advise them prior to future purchases.

Dear JHD Retailers, I hope this finds all of you well!!  I wanted to share a few things. We have made some changes here in the office. Some of you have already talked with our newest Customer Service Member, Clarissa. She is a recent grad from the University of Texas at Austin and loves Jon Hart.  We are excited to have her. We know you will enjoy working with her.  Our other change is in the returns department. Nikki is no longer with us. We are all pitching in while we train her replacement. We ask for your patience and understanding. With that said, I really need your help with RA’s: 

• DO request an RA# from returns for remonos, monos, repatches, returns, exchanges, etc.

• DO complete an RA sheet with detail for each product (item & work requested)

• DO write the RA# on the outside of the box

• DON’T add additional items that weren’t part of the RA

We receive boxes every day with no RA# and/or detail. It slows the process way down when we have to look for clues and often these boxes are put to the side until someone claims them. You may have sent an e-mail but it’s hundreds deep by the time we receive your boxAs most of you know we had a manufacturing error in our new Lil Chills. I am happy to say we have fixed the problem and made it even better for those of you who hot stamp in your store. You can find a helpful video on the bulletin.  I know that Markets have been changed to August, however we still want to offer the Market Special Promotion!! It will start June 29th and end on July 10th!! You will receive promotion pricing and FREE hot stamping during this promotion. Don’t forget you must select the drop-down Market Special, so we know to adjust your price and remove the hot stamping charge.  

e-Mailed 6/24:

Dear Retailers,
Congratulations to so many of you that have reopened or are in the process of re-opening. If you aren’t able to open yet, we hope that it will be soon. It’s been a tough few months for us all and persevering has a new meaning.

We appreciate your continued patience as we work to fill your orders. Although it has been hard to understand, manufacturing restrictions have been much slower to lift at our home in San Antonio, Texas than most other sectors, including retail. Re-opening has been a moving target for the last two months and as mentioned in Julie’s previous e-mails, we were permitted to operate at 50% occupancy as of 3 weeks ago.

Because re-opening has been so slow, so has fulfillment. In the spirit of transparency, I’d like to share with you what our average fulfillment times have been running and when we expect them to improve.

  • For March & April orders, we averaged a 16 day turn-around. Some orders went out twice as fast and some took twice as long depending on the size of the orders and the products. In April, our factory was re-purposed to make masks for the local health department, military bases and essential personnel. As a result we updated our website to indicate 2+, 3+ or 4+ weeks over the COVID delay date posted for every item.
  • Our inability to build inventory caught up with us in May and most everything was made-to-order at 25% factory occupancy. We have averaged 17 days for May orders with 20% left to go which will clearly increase the average.
  • We are still working on more than half of our June orders to date. We expect June to average around 17 days although there will be outliers that ship faster or take longer.

Although we are not where we’d like to be, the progress we’ve made in the last week is encouraging. We hope to return to normal turn-around times within the next few weeks as we return to our normal manufacturing processes. 

We know that your customers are anxious to receive their items.  Please let them know that we appreciate their loyalty and are working overtime within the health and safety guidelines, which continue to evolve, to make their items as quickly as we can. 

Thanks again for your patience and understanding,

Sharon Durham

Dear JHD Retailers,

Our State and Local Leaders are allowing manufacturing companies to open at 50% occupancy. This is what we need to achieve in order to operate at full capacity. I want to first Thank You for your patience and understanding as we had to navigate our way through a difficult time. We want to ask you for your continued patience as we get everyone back in place, working. All our amazing employees are eager to get back to work. I also want to share with you how proud I am to be part of the JHD family! I can honestly say if we did not have the leaders, we have today COVID might have beaten JHD, however, our leadership rose to the occasion and took care of their employees and retailers! I look forward to all the new and wonderful things we have in the works for those who love our product. 😊

Due to some changes, we had to make we have decided that it would be best for us to have set hours for visitors. 

Please make a note of our new lobby hours. We will be open Tuesday and Thursday: 10-2 pm. If you have a pick-up, please call us an hour before so we can have all your items ready in the front lobby. Again, thank you for all you do!! 

Happy Jon Hart Day,

POSTED 5/11/20: Ole Pearl and Ole Tourney Tote are no longer available to order. 

  POSTED 5/6/20: Ole is now visible for retailers ONLY! We have limited amount of material left. Once we run out we will be taking Ole off the website. Please be cautious when taking orders for Ole and check the website first!

  POSTED 5/4/20:  Please check your inbox for continued communication from Julie Sansavera for updates on production and Ole.  Emails were sent 4/29/20 & 5/3/20.  

  • San Antonio is under and extended Work Safe/ Stay Home Order until May 20th
  • Although Jon Hart was initially deemed non-essential and unable to operate, we began sewing masks for essential personnel in April.  This has enabled us to partially operate.  The health department has been here more than once.
  • We are shipping items that we have in stock and/or are sewn in satellite studios and then quarantined for 72 hrs before entering the main building    
  • As previously announced, the Grad Promo has been extended through May for Retailers Only
  • The Ole Collection will end publicly on 5/5/20.  Retailers will be able to order items for an additional two weeks or while supplies last, whichever comes first.
  • All items have extended shipping timelines.  If you ask for 'Ship Complete' it will take longer.  We will try our best to optimize shipments if you do not mark 'Ship Complete'
  • The "Together #100MillionMask" White Grande philanthropic promo is launching on 5/5/20.  The profits from this item will be used for mask donations, therefore it is not offered at a wholesale rate.  In addition, the material is not our traditional coated canvas.                                                  

 POSTED 3/31

Our “From a Distance” program will allow you to receive credit for sales placed on the Jon Hart Design website.   We’ll process the order, collect the payment and send the items to the customer.

 Here’s how it works:

•       You create a special code for your store here

•       Once confirmed via e-mail, the code will be active and you can start sharing it.

•       When your code is used, you will receive 40% of the product sales via a credit.  This credit will be available at the end of the program and can be used for outstanding invoices or future purchases.

 Please know, this program is completely optional, and you can give out the code as much or as little as you’d like.  Based on current social distancing guidelines, we expect this program to be in place until the end of April 2020.

 POSTED 3/25/20

A few new offers for now and the future as our plans evolve with the current situation. 

  • To help in the future: All retailers will be extended the graduation promo pricing through the end of May.  We hope this gives you additional time to rebound from the current disruptions.
  • For those of you that we can help now, we’re going to bring back the Free Makeup Case Organizer with purchase of Makeup Case
    • This will be valid 3/26/20-3/31/20  
    • No code needed
    • Cannot be combined with grad promo discounts (if you add it to a trunk show order we’ll adjust the price of both the makeup case & organizer during processing)
    • Excludes the Ole’ Makeup Case
  • Free hot-stamping for the rest of the month.  We made this available for drop-ship orders last week and are now extending it to all orders.  We’re hoping this helps both Hot Stampers who can’t physically Hot Stamp right now as well as non-Hot Stampers.  Not able to combined with any other promotions. This will be valid 3/26/20-3/31/20.  

 POSTED 3/24/20 :  A Stay Home/Work Safe order has been issued by the Mayor of San Antonio through April 9th which impacts Jon Hart Design operations.  Unless you've told us differently we will ship your orders ASAP.  We will be operating with a minimal crew for the next couple of weeks and doing our best to serve you and your customers.

 POSTED 3/20/20 

We know that drop-shipping is more important to you than ever.  We also know that shipping charges diminish your margins.  During the government imposed COVID-19 restrictions, we’re doing two things to help you out:

1.       We will not charge you for hot-stamping on your drop-ship orders. This discount should tremendously help you recover margin from shipping costs- in other words, continue to charge your customer for hot-stamping and it should cover a considerable amount of the shipping so that you can offer free or flat-rate shipping.  To take advantage of this, simply add the ‘DROP SHIP HOT STAMP PROMO’ product to your cart listed under ‘New Products’ on the website (also on Quick-Order Form).  This is only visible to retailers and will take effect starting March 21, 2020. The mono fees will still show up in your shopping cart but will be removed before you are invoiced. You are not able to combine this drop ship promo with any other promotions.

2.       We will continue to take advantage of FedEx’s flat rate shipping where we can.  Although we cannot ship larger items/orders via FedEx it does help eliminate the extra UPS surcharges for residential or extended distances for smaller items/orders that can sometimes double the shipping rate.
