By now almost all of you have received your shipments, and the response has been terrific.
I am aware that there are several people still waiting for theirs to arrive, so for those people here is the most recent information. From the beginning of this project, I have been keeping everyone informed about the process we have been going through, and the process of shipping has been a lot like every other part of launching a new project, learning as we go.
In order to make shipping as inexpensive as possible for backers, we decided to use the US Postal Service for our deliveries. It made shipping about 50% less than other shipping carriers, which is good.... but it has turned out to be painfully slow to some countries, which is bad. It turns out that we are only able to track packages as far as the US border, so while we know when packages leave the country, we don't get any information after that.
I am getting reports every day that packages are arriving, so we know things are still working their way across the planet. The US Postal Service says it could take up to a month for packages to arrive. So for those still waiting, please continue to be patient, YOUR WINDERS ARE COMING!!!
For the future, we will learn from this experience and use a shipping carrier that tracks products all the way to Backer's door. We are not sure yet whether this is going to be DHL, Fedex or someone else, but it won't be the US postal service.
That is also my way of hinting that there is soon to be another Recoil Project on Kickstarter! You know that big cord mess behind your desk at home or at work? The cords that fall down behind your computer that is a big mess on the floor by your feet? Enjoy that mess for now because we are about to clean it up for you. More details to come, but I think you are going to love this one! Stay tuned!
Thanks, and keep me informed as you winders finally arrive in your Post Box.
P.S.- don't forget that Recoil Winders are available for purchase at recoilwinders.com.
