Hello Former and Future Backers.
The Whooz? website is now up and running! Take a look. Post it, tweet it, talk about it. Whooz? has left it's childhood home at kickstarter and is now rolling with the big boys.
For those of you with a survey still sitting in your inbox, open it, fill it out and send it to me! Shipment begins this weekend. I want you all to get these before the holidays but I can't send you anything if I don't have your address.
If you ordered a custom Whooz? you will be receiving a survey for these in about a week. Delivery is slated for January, so I will not begin designs on these until all orders are out.
If you are a diehard hallmark channel fan then let me confirm for you that Whooz? will indeed be aired as part of their holiday gift guide this Monday. I haven't been given the time yet so you'll have to just plant yourself on the couch for the whole entire day. Make sure you don't blink though, cuz you might miss it.
Time to start stuffing envelopes!
$20,239! Almost 4 times the funding goal! That is something to holler about. Thank you all for your support, advice, blog posts, facebook posts, pins, tweets and cheers throughout this month. You made this happen! It has been a fantastic voyage and it's only just getting started.
I will be sending out a survey shortly to gather all your shipping and order information. Shipments will begin next Monday. Whooz will soon be in your homes.
A sincere thanks and a deep bow,
With 700 backers and over triple the goal, I have got some big thanks to give. Thank you all for your support and for spreading the word to make Whooz the success that it has become. Three weeks ago I imagined that at this point I would be calling up my mom encouraging her to buy for next Christmas too. Family and friends shall remain unharrassed.
This last month has unfolded magically. Production began Monday night and the first run will be in my hands November 30th. I was able to double my run and will be receiving the second batch shortly thereafter. The website is underway and should be launching on the 30th as well. And for those of you who are fans of the Hallmark Channel, they are planning to air a short segment on Whooz for their holiday gift guide on November 30th. From the streets of my laboring mind to the big screen! Movie stars are born.
Whooz has entered the home stretch. Less than three days left. Keep spreading the word and let’s see if we can reach 20k in the final hours. If you’re still deliberating on the custom versions, do it! The cost for these will go up on the website. For those in the US, I hope you all have enjoyed lovely meals with your families and are pleasantly reveling in your turkey comas.
Hello Backers! I just received the first set of Whooz samples for approval and they look great! The ink is rich with a nice protective gloss coat, the vinyl is a perfect thickness, and they are easy to put on. I’m very pleased with the results. You're gonna love 'em!
On the subject of stretch goals, I have decided to postpone adding more designs until the kickstarter orders have shipped. I am working on a website right now so that Whooz will be able to immediately graduate to its own place on the internet. Once all the kickstarter orders are flying to their destinations I will be concentrating on Round 2, which will include labels for Macbooks, UK cords, and EU cords.
For those of you with iPhones and newer models of iPads, which is probably every single one of you, check out my friend Mark’s great Kickstarter project, the HiLO Lens. This small, fit in your pocket, swiveling camera lens attachment allows you to take cool pics at fun, hard to access (without making a fool of yourself) angles. There are only 4 days left on the campaign so get over there and get yours! http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/marknzed/hilo-lens-for-iphone-and-ipad
