LensRacks Project Update #30 - We've begun shipping to backers!
Hi LensRacks Backer!
As mentioned in our previous comments, we have received the rail stands despite some customs delay! Since then, we've been hard at work with quality inspection, packaging, and shipping LensRacks.
Here is a photo showing some of the boxes we have right now.
For packaging, part of the work involves applying rubber feet to thousands of rail stands and rails. For shipping, we are busy with working through all the logistics of every single backer so that all of the pledges can be fulfilled in an accurate, timely fashion.
We've begun sending out our very first batches of LensRacks to you backers, which involves picking and packing, packaging, creating the shipping the label and dropping them off to shipping locations.
We are building and fulfilling each pledge manually. We plan to complete all Kickstarter pledges by May. For international shipments, we ship each pledge by air. From our experience with LensPacks, shipping times average around 8 business days, but has taken up as long as two months in extremely rare cases. The shipping time varies greatly based on the destination, post office speed, and customs delays.
Again, we are very grateful for your support and patience during these last few months. We had a lot of difficulty with our main suppliers getting things right. As you know, we went through different molds for the lens holders, and many iterations for the rail stands. In the end, everything finally came through!
We will be updating you guys throughout the fulfillment process! If you have any last second address changes, please send us a message immediately to update your address, assuming your pledge hasn't been shipped yet.
If you have other questions, please also feel free to send us a message !
