We have been working hard to finalize the materials we will be using for the case and wanted to give everyone a sneak peek of the leather options, stay tuned for wood next! We should complete our first production run and be shipping in May if all goes to plan - thank you for your continued support!
Hi Everyone! We are excited to announce that our mold is currently being manufactured and we expect to see our first production samples within the next 30 days.
Check out the attached photo of our latest prototype. This one is navy leather on a black case w/custom initials. We updated the lens shape to eliminate any flash ghosting and ensure the best possible picture quality.
We can't wait to get these in your hands, they are looking awesome :)
In spite of our unsuccessful funding on Kickstarter we are still going forward with the Sled iPhone 5 case!
We also still plan on starting to ship before the end of February. So don't run out to buy a case just yet, you will definitely want to wait and see what we've come up with :). Stay tuned for updates here or sign up for our newsletter at Sledmade.com.

We hope everyone is having a great holiday season and looking forward to ringing in the new year on Monday.
We wanted to take a moment and give a special THANK YOU to our early backers -- we truly appreciate your support!
We are almost at the 35% funded mark with a little under two weeks to go and Zack and I are confident that we can make the final push to close the gap. If you have friends or family that were lucky enough to receive an iPhone 5 for the holidays we hope you will send them our way! Please note that we have added a couple new rewards: a Sled i5 Case with a handmade leather sunglasses strap & a Sled i5 Case with a handmade leather belt.
Currently we are focused on finalizing material selection, lens cutout shape (we will share more on this very soon), and packaging design. We plan to start production in early January.
