2,400 lamps shipped! Time for a break.

15 likes

Hey everyone,

It's been a crazy week, but we managed to get 2,400 lamps out into the world. We've heard that there were a few damaged shipments, and some upside-down question marks, so we're doing our best to get things replaced.

If you're in the US, everything should be arriving before Christmas. We're really sorry if UPS takes longer than expected. There are often issues with weather that cause minor delays.

Thank you everyone for your patience and understanding as we got the lamps out to you. Our main concern is that you're happy with the product, so if there's anything amiss, please email us at concerns@8bitlit.com.

We're going to be taking a break after today, but we'll be back in communication after the 31st. We hope you all have a wonderful Holidays with your friends and families. 

May you have plenty of gold coins and extra lives to go around : )

Adam and Bryan

      Hate to annoy you gentlemen with another comment about shipment, but it's well after Christmas, and no shipping info has been sent my way. Thanks!

      Never got a tracking number or anything...guess I'll be in the next US shipment...

      Never got mine! Hopefully I can get one soon so I can give my brother his late Christmas gift, was super bummed.

      My UPS delay was from stupidity not weather. Instead of shipping it from Los Angeles to San Francisco, they sent it to Sacramento & then to New York. I won't get mine lamp until the 2nd week of January. You guys should get refunded for their lousy service.

      So I got our lamp last week and I gave it to my husband as his Christmas present, but there is no instructions on how to put it together with the stand. Any help either from you or someone who knows how to do this would be appreciated!!!

      We opened our gifts this evening and the lamps were a huge hit! Every one of them was immediately plugged in and turned off and on repeatedly all evening! I'm pretty sure my youngest (28) thought he'd died and gone to heaven! So- thank you so much for a most EXCELLENT Kickstarter! I know that these lamps are going to be cherished for a long time.

      Merry Christmas you guys, great job!

      Got mine yesterday (UK) and I love it - it's the best lamp ever! Made a makeshift stand as parents weren't keen on me drilling into their ceiling. Thank you!!

    16. Maggie Blum on December 24, 2013

      Got mine a week ago and I love it! I also love those extra sounds you put in, they totally surprised me!

    17. Randy on December 24, 2013

      Got mine a few days ago, and absolutely LOVE it! Nice job guys! :)

    18. Jarrad Gittos on December 24, 2013

      Wish I got mine before xmas, also in Australia. My mate will be sad he won't get a present from me this christmas :(

    19. Cameron (BLINK) on December 24, 2013

      Got mine two days ago (Australia) and it is AWESOME! So much better than what I thought it would be!!

      Thanks 8 Bit Lit :D

    20. Dennis Allen on December 24, 2013

      I won't get mine until the first week of January because UPS screwed up. Coming from Los Angeles, instead of going to me in San Francisco, it ended up in New York this morning :(

      Wondering if theres a random mushroom sound like the star. If not you should put it in future lamps.

    22. Apit C L on December 23, 2013

      I received mine last Thursday and it is the most amazing light I have ever bought. It is not very often but when the one up sound played It made me as giddy as a school girl! Amazing job!
