Just wanted to keep everyone in the loop with some exciting updates about the project. Since reaching our funding, we've been hard at work on a few different aspects of Gift Couture.
First off: We've been building and testing our online store. By hitting our Kickstarter numbers we have the funding needed to build and host a completely secure, super-easy-to-use store that will supply our Cheeseburger Set as well as all new, secret, never before seen sets. It'll be available before long on GiftCouture.com, and we'll be notifying everyone once it's up and running!
Second: After an incredibly thorough process of speaking with, reviewing samples, and getting to know vendors from all over the country, we're excited to announce all Gift Couture papers will be printed in beautiful Boulder, Colorado! It was really important to us that we didn't skimp on quality, or be lured by less expensive foreign vendors. Our new friends at D&K Printing blew the competition away, and we're proud to work with them. You should check out all the good work they're doing, on their blog http://printdk.blogspot.com/. Not to mention they are super environmentally consious, one of the top family-owned business in Boulder, and all around nice people. Everything is printing as we speak and, just as we planned, on course to ship by the end of February.
Third: Because of your blog posts, tweets, and sharing, we've been lucky enough to have been contacted by some pretty incredible organizations and publications about our journey with this project. We'll keep you in the loop, but we're pretty excited for some big opportunities that are right around the corner.
Thanks again for making all of this possible. We can't express how encouraging and inspring the whole process has been. We'll post here for milestone updates, and smaller ones on our twitter @Gift_Couture.
Chat again soon,

Wow, we are so excited to be successfully funded and can't wait to start personally thanking everyone who helped! We are extremely busy this month with printing, mailing out rewards to all of you, and getting our website up and running!
If you backed our project, you should have received a survey from us asking for your shipping information. Please feel free to contact us with any additional concerns or questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Again, we appreciate all of the suggestions and help! We couldn't have done this without your support and hope to stay in touch with everyone who has contacted us so that we can continue to contribute to each others successes! Thank you all so much!

We can't believe it! 10 days after launching on Kickstarter, Gift Couture is fully funded and now exceeding it's goal! It's incredible how many of you tweeted, shared, blogged and spread the word about our project. With most of our funding coming from redirecting sites, we truly couldn't have done it without all the support and encouragement.
We are working on updating www.giftcouture.com to credit all of your beautiful names for the generous donations and support. If for any reason you wouldn't want to be credited, we will honor your request as well. You will be receiving a survey from us on January 1 which will enable you to provide us with your shipping and contact information. Also, if you'd like us to include a link to your website, blog, facebook, twitter, or even email address, just send it over. We're getting a steady flow of traffic, and we'd love to send some of it your way too.
We've also added some additional rewards for high bidders. Custom burger toppings, or even the ability to add bacon to everyone's order!
If you haven't yet backed our project but would like a Cheeseburger wrapping paper set, there are still 21 days to pre-order (below retail price) on Kickstarter!
Again, we can't tell you how excited we are for the opportunity to realize this project. The encouragement and support has surpassed anything we had hoped for.
All our love,
