Fulfillment of kickstarter rewards should all be shipped by Monday and arrive on Wednesday (Thursday if the post office is slow about it). If you are picking up your boxes from the shop, feel free to come by any time during normal working hours.
Here's what fulfillment looks like at the Intrigue Chocolate Co. shop:
Cocoas and Fortunato No. 4 beans being put into boxes.
Our office side of the shop. It's not a pretty sight. Between shipping materials, t-shirts, and new packaging boxes, we're full to the brim! Fortunately there is some table space left for folding and piecing together the new boxes. This is where I spend most of my time while Aaron is in the kitchen making truffles.
Only a small hangup on fulfillment that affect a few of you at the $50 tier. I've reached out to you already. If you have not connected with me yet and absolutely need the chocolate by Valentine's Day, then tomorrow (Saturday the 9th) is the last chance to let me know that I need to prioritize your order. Otherwise it's likely we will still get your chocolate to you on time, but not guaranteed. If you do not receive by Thursday, you will receive a box in the mail one week later. Thanks again to those that offered to be patient just a little longer.
We've launched an updated website to better showcase the new band and packaging. It's a little bare bones right now, and we are getting by with our amateur photos until later in the month, but take a look! http://www.intriguechocolate.com
Please let me know if you have any questions, and feel free to reach out to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
