359 more pens shipped
Last week we QC'd and packed 359 more pens.
These pens were all shipped out by our super fulfillment company yesterday. They actually are super.
More of you should expect to be fancy doodling any day now.
a bitty blog for your doodles
We set up a blog so that all of your Pen Type-A doodles can have a nice home. Please keep them coming. They are rays of sunshine for us!
If you'd like to submit a drawing : http://pentype-a.tumblr.com/submit
Or if it is easier for you to email us, feel free to do that instead!
For those of you who are counting. Yes, a grand total of 1026 pens have shipped! We know this is a (humiliatingly) small number. And we wish more than all of you that it was bigger.
Our priority with our manufacturers is quality and a consistent timeline. Not fast ...even though that would be great... but consistent and awesome. We are fiercely making sure quality doesn't falter. The pens are still coming in with a bit of oily residue. This is nowhere near as bad as before. We have been wiping it away with alcohol. Hopefully the NEXT batch is totally clean and dry.
We are still going through every pen that comes our way before it gets to you. If you are unhappy in any way with what you receive please let us know and we will fix any issues.
For those of you who are still waiting. We get it. It totally sucks. But the pens will come. And one day we will all be happy. Together.
We cannot tell you how appreciative we are of your patience. When it gets super frustrating, take a huge, deep breath. That's what we've been trying. It helps for a few seconds ;)
big hugs and please take a moment to enjoy (the now less and less fake) summer.
