I am very glad to have this update to our backers of Limited Edition Kickstarter Green being 100% completed and shipping.
Green & Slate Limited Ed.
All of LE units backed from laser engraving, waiting to be prepped
As per my last comment on the main comment section, AM&S at the last minute (last week) after weeks of telling us to wait for the engraving, then told us they can't and won't do it. I had to find one myself at any costs because AM&S also will not cover the engraving costs despite agreeing to it as a whole package at the beginning as part of the project.
Nevertheless, I am lucky to find one place that was able to do the engraving within a few days and at a cost that's very reasonable. I just picked up today ALL of the LE units, we are now working through the night to prepare for the shipping tomorrow and the day after.
A Limited Ed. RADIUS unit on a simple jig, the engraving process took a few seconds and they were able to do all of the units in 2 days
Each engraving has to be individually typed in, because the serial numbers are non-sequential as they are unevenly split between Green & Polished and Green & Slate units

Each KS Limited Ed. unit comes with a signed, with matching serial letterpress card
Each backer who choose this reward is assigned a serial number based on the order they pledge (The labels were printed 6 months ago)

The cases look great and I am VERY happy and somewhat relieved to have these shipping to our backers.
I am shipping these cases personally now from my home office, with each unit in hand and putting them in an addressed envelope with your name on it, I feel grateful.
Each of the RADIUS case whether it comes with a thank you card or not, bears me and my team's gratitude.
To say we felt bad is not enough, my work here is not done and I can't sleep tight until I have delivered each one of your cases. So please rest assured that I am doing everything in my power to get them manufactured, at all costs to deliver your rewards.
For the remaining units, we are having them manufactured in mass qty and will be done at once, instead of few units per day. These will take 2-3 weeks, and they are already in process.
I will keep this short and get back to prepping these units ready for shipping. Thank you backers and my personal apologies for the delays, heartaches, disappointments.
Please continue to support us and bear with us, we need it now more than ever. For those who said they are now weary of backing KS projects, I would offer them that their support is a gift and an empowerment to themselves, as much as it is to the creators. Because every Kickstarter project is a dream and innovation waiting for a benefactor.
