Hello there,

Just a reminder that the Nikon Quikdraws will be arriving here on April 15th.

We will do our best to ensure the remaining Nikon backers will receive their rewards immediately.

Thank you for all your patience and we can't wait for the Quikdraws to be in your hands.

Hello backers and happy new year!

We are back from the holiday break and we are starting 2014 full speed. There is plenty happening with the business right now but this update will be about shipping address updates and Nikon build progress.

I want to personally thank everyone who backed this project. I know we have been through the ringer and back but in the end this is a great success. The product is out to the majority of the backers and everyone loves their Quikdraws. Taking a idea to market is a time intensive and expensive experience. Executing this project has taught me so much about business, marketing, finance, VC funding, business systems, manufacturing, time management, shipping, packaging, distribution, etc... If you would like to get an MBA my suggestion is to start a kickstart project instead. The homework is much more meaningful.

There are 120 Nikon units in route. I will receive them sometime next week. I will be fulfilling the higher dollar amount rewards first.

If you have not received your Canon units and/or you have not received an email from me to update your shipping address please message me via kickstarter.com with either your shipping address OR a new email so I can send you the address update email and link.

There was a major hic-up over christmas with the address update email. It was not updating existing contacts, it was creating new contacts. I was getting notification that someone updated their address then when I searched for their name 2 contacts appeared. Only a few packages were shipped to the incorrect addresses. I have merged over 150 contact records and fixed the issue with the address update web form. Please do not click on any old links from older emails to update your address The email and link received after Dec 26 is known good and will work properly. .

It is very important that when you receive an address update email that you enter you current shipping address (even if it hasn’t changed) and click the submit (send me my Quikdraw) button. I have no other way to verify your address for shipping. The web form must be submitted for you to receive your reward. I know this is not amazon but it is the system we have in place now.


Update #29

Canon units are headed out!

Hello backers!

I picked up 700+ canon units last tuesday. I have personally tested each unit and I want to report that they work exactly as I planned! Over 85% yield! Such good news. I will have Canon units in stock after all the pre orders go out. This is a huge milestone!

Shipments - Everything is going to plan. There are 140+ shipments out and 60+ ready to go out on Monday. I will provide the names of these people in the next update when the kickstarter rewards are all shipped. For all the people that messed the address update email keep an eye out for it this afternoon. We had planned to ship out the units in a different order but really we are only shipping out to people that have opened the address update email or clicked on the link (yes I can see all of this). Please be patient with us during the shipments. Jenna and I are very busy making sure the shipments are correct and we have a ton of work ahead of us.

Nikon units are still in production. Last update I got from the factory they said that the first build will be done on the 14th.

New website - All through this shipping chaos we are launching a new website. The old website is still up but you can no longer purchase Quikdraws. The new site will be up Monday or Tuesday.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!!!!

-Riley
