Shipping and Production Update
I just wanted to send a quick update as to the production and shipping schedule so those who have not received their Ridge yet know what to expect. With the help of some friends we have shipped just over 3000 of the pledges over the last two weeks! So far we have shipped the:
Aluminum Black Classic with logo (money clip)
Aluminum Black Classic without logo (money clip)
Aluminum Silver Classic (money clip)
Aluminum Silver New (no money clip)
We have been shipping the pledges out as we receive them from our manufacturer, and as of this morning we have the next batch of the Kickstarter edition as well as the Aluminum New Ridge in Black. Those will begin shipping this week and you will receive an e-mail with tracking sent to the address associated with your Kickstarter account.
If you pledged for one of the wallets that was listed as shipped as haven't received anything as of yet, please be patient! We'll do our best to get everything and will begin processing any issues once we have shipped the remaining pledges. The multiples will be going out soon, but logistically they are much tougher to process as we haven't received every type of wallet yet.
We especially want to apologize to our backers who pledged for the Titanium Ridge, which is still in the final stages of manufacturing. Titanium is extremely tough to manufacture and requires special presses, moulds and drill bits which have to be rotated out frequently that are just taking a bit longer than we anticipated We will let you know as soon as we receive the remaining reward levels, which are expected to be completed in the next few days.
Again thank you everyone for the continued patience, we're thrilled with the positive feedback we've received so far and are doing our best to ship the remaining pledges.
There were suggestions of using a fulfillment company but we actually turned down several offers to have the project fulfilled by a third party although it would have been simpler because we felt it made the whole process impersonal and we wanted to see the project we promised to you through to the end. So we really appreciate the understanding and are three fifths of the way through fulfilling all of the rewards!
We've also included a few pictures of our last couple trips to the post office and the shipping frenzy going on at home.
