Well... here we are, the official end of our 1Q Kickstarter project. The last of the 1Q's that we have payment and addresses for are now out the door and on their way to you! T shirts will be coming along soon as well...
Please note that international shipments can take 3 - 4 weeks, but we have been seeing less from our pledge community - so please be patient! Also, we've sent out a final email to those of you who still owe for international shipping or who have not sent us a survey response with finish choice and shipping information. We will ALWAYS honor your pledge, but have no other way to get your attention at this point.
Product or support questions? Interested in becomming a reseller or collaborating on a project? Please send them directly to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You are all at the very top of our priority list!
We have an interesting project that we are working on at the moment which we hope to launch on Kickstarter early next year. We want to make sure that it goes as smooth (or even smoother) then 1Q, so we have alot of homework to do before we can talk about it in more detail. It was inspired by your comments on 1Q, so we know you'll love it. You will be the very first to know once we are ready to go live.
It's going to be fun - I simply can't wait!

Public Relations: Karin Whiting Burgess & Max Borges Agency

Our own truly amazing team:

Director of NA Sales: Chris Wuerfl
Photography, Video & Studio Support: Calvin Laituri
If you haven't figured it out by now, we simply love the Kickstarter concept and have really enjoyed all of the energy and enthusiasm that we got from you; we like to call it crowd 'finding'. We got alot of GREAT ideas on how to improve 1Q, as well as GREAT Kickstarter project management advice from the experienced backers amongst you - it's been a true collaboration! So if you love your 1Q, tell a friend - better yet, post your reviews here, on Facebook or even Amazon.com!
You can ALWAYS find us at:
...and don't forget:
...to save 20% on 1Q or 2Q through the end of December!
