Update #11

Shipping and Production Update

hey everyone!

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.

-Paul and Daniel

      June 3 and still no Ti wallet, reading all the rave reviews of those who have been living with and enjoying their lower priced rewards (high level $85 backer cost comes with some disadvantages apparently). Anyway, every work trip I take without this new wallet are opportunities lost to show it off. Any idea when Ti wallets will arrive?

      Got mine (with the money clip) the other week....does anyone else have a problem with the clip being extremely tight? It's hard to even get any of my money in it. It's actually ripped some bills because it's so tight. I can't even pry it with my fingers.

      AWESOME WALLET! Switch to immediately and made a bunch of people jealous of my new wallet. Been using for about a week now, and feel of it is great, not heavy at all and functions a lot easier than i thought.

      The only thing i can see on improvement is that the money clip version, it's too smooth that money can easily slide on the surface. I put a small strip of athletic tape right under the clip to stop it. Maybe a little tweak to help that out. but over all a GREAT wallet design for minimalist such as myself.

      I've been using my Ridge for about one week now every day. I posted it up on facebook and people were impressed by the design. One friend said he'd even look into buying one from the preorder site. I have the card holder almost maxed out so it's not as easy to slip things in and out but it still works enough. It's so much less bulky than my old wallet. It fits better in girl's jeans too! No purse! The money clip is also holding my bills nice and snug! Thank you.

That image with the shipping labels going from the upstairs floor to the downstairs, into a plastic bin - wow! Good decision on doing the shipping yourselves too, though it must be driving you crazy! Looks great!!!
