Hi everybody, it's that time again for a Monster Volume update. We've been working day and night on all aspects of the campaign including packing books, managing addresses and emails, and preparing all the digital deliveries.
While we're making good progress, we're currently battling a few challenges and we definitely want to keep everyone in the loop. Here's the rundown:
We're currently still waiting to receive our slipcases. As you can imagine, we're not happy about this and we're in constant contact with the printer trying to squeeze any information we can. As soon as we get some hard delivery dates, we'll get the information out to all of you immediately. Our primary goal will always be to get quality monster mania into your hands and we're doing everything we can to make that happen.
While we planned to send out our initial shipment last week, there were a few more details we needed to work out with FedEx and packaging. We're getting closer and once shipments begin, you will receive an email with your tracking number. For domestic, we'll be using SmartPost which is a partnership with FedEx and the USPS which includes tracking. International will be delivered by FedEx Intl which includes tracking as well.
On the progress side, we've begun distribution of all the digital rewards! After lots of research, we selected YouSendIt to handle the delivery. As you can imagine, delivering this much data is a huge task, so we needed a robust solution. The deliveries will be linked to your Survey Email so be on the lookout over the next few days. (If you forgot which email you used on the survey, log into your Kickstarter account, go to our campaign page, and click on the "Survey Response" under the tier you selected.)
Over the years, whenever I would tell my dad about a big project, he'd ask "How do you eat an elephant?" Before I could respond he'd answer "One bite at a time!" This project is a really, really big elephant, but we're chewing as fast as we can. The supportive emails we've received from you guys over the last few weeks have been amazing. We appreciate your patience through the challenges and we can't wait to get the books out to you.
Talk to you guys soon!
