Over 90% of our Ultimate Spatula Kickstarter rewards have been mailed out!
Hope you all have a blast using your spatulas and/or surprising family and friends for the holidays. This has been an amazingly fun campaign, and totally worth the December rush to get everything into your hands NOT fashionably late. We can't wait to hear what you all think. Please let us know, via comments, twitter @productofgir, facebook.com, email, snail mail, or high-fives if you see us all bundled up on the streets of NYC.
By popular request, we sent everything USPS. Most of you will receive your spatulas sometime this week or next, but please be patient if it takes a few extra days (some of them have quite a far distance to travel!). International orders were fulfilled last week, too, so we don't anticipate too much of a lag for those of you who backed the spatula from across the globe.
We're still sending out a few packages for people whose survey answers came in a few days later than most. If you're in that category, rest assured that we're getting your packages mailed out as your responses come in, without extra delay. To everyone who has already responded, thanks for helping us deliver your rewards on time.
We're only missing about 20 responses for addresses and/or color preferences (for those who backed at the $20 level or requested multiples). If you think you might be among those 20 and haven't already contacted us, check your email for messages from firstname.lastname@example.org or send us a message. We want you to get your rewards ASAP so you can bake pies and make cranberry sauce with your awesome new spatula.
Spatulas are on sale at the productofgir.com website! If you're in NYC, you can also find them at the Lion'esque Style Holiday Pop-Up Shop on the corner of 47th and Lexington, and at JB Prince chefs' tools on 31st Street.
We were very lucky to get a call from Fab.com, which had us jumping up and down -- they're going to run a flash sale for the Spatula starting December 5th, so if you like yours enough to give it as a gift, take a look there later this week. If you don't know what Fab is, it's worth checking out for their wonderful set of curated designs and amazing gifts -- here's an invite link if you need one: http://fab.com/568sxx
We had a great time at the launch party this weekend! Lots of fun pics are up at our Facebook page, facebook.com/productofgir -- more to come. Thanks to everyone who came to share in the fun, and to those who sent friends in their place. What a wonderful group of people to spend an evening with. Just wish all 1,638 of you could have been there!
If you sent us a message or email this weekend and we've taken an unusually long time to respond, please forgive us… we've been a bit overwhelmed, but we haven't forgotten you and we'll send a personal response today :)
The GIR Team
Now that the Thanksgiving rush is over (fun as it was), we wanted to send another update to keep everyone in the loop. We've moved on from stuffing turkeys to stuffing envelopes!
Here's where we're at (and it's really, really good):
Spatulas are stocked in the warehouse and ready to go.
Everything else we needed for shipping (from wristbands to labels and envelopes) is in our hands. Lots of moving parts, but they've come together very quickly. Go team!
We have about 95% of survey responses in for both the Kickstarter address survey and the color surveys we sent separately. If you haven't received and/or completed both of those for some reason, send us a message and we'll help out so that your packages aren't delayed.
And the best news of all: we are set to start mailing everything out next week. How's that for an early holiday treat?
Have a great weekend,
The GIR Team
