Update #17

Das Horn shipment status

Dear Backers,  

Our container of Das Horns was in transit via train longer than we expected (surprise). The good news is that the Das Horns are scheduled to arrive at our warehouse tomorrow at 9AM CDT. From there, they will start shipping to you immediately.  

Thank you all for being very patient. In the past few months, we've learned a great deal about what it really takes to bring a product like Das Horn to life. Going from protoype to production involved a lot of work as well as trial and error to get Das Horn just right. In addition to the manufacturing, we've had to learn about the logistics industry.  

We're just two regular guys who enjoy drinking an occasional beer out horns (without killing any animals). We're proud of Das Horn and indebted to you for helping make Das Horn a reality.  

Cheers,  

David and Alex

      No email, no horn. I live in Switzerland, are you shipping world wide at this stage? It would be great if it would be here before october fest in Munich :)

      I received this from the warehouse earlier today:

      "Thank you for your message. We're working through orders as fast as humanly possible.

      We've had a series of setbacks and challenges with processing the packages for shipment. The items arrived later than expected which caused the fulfillment to back up against another client's project so we've had a bit of a bottleneck. Also, as previously mentioned, the shipment needed to be completely broken down and re-packaged as the manufacturing facility did not follow our packaging specifications.

      Additionally, the quality was such that each unit had to undergo a thorough physical inspection to ensure each horn met with our approval. With rejects, we may need to wait on a second shipment of horns for the last 500 or so orders. This second batch is scheduled to ship via sea at the end of the month for late November arrival.

      The good news is that we've processed all of the orders for which we have horns. However, we haven't shipped all of them as we're limited to shipping twenty orders a day as that is the daily limit on our trial-ware label printing software. Tracking numbers/shipping confirmation are limited to only five VIP orders per day, so as you've seen, many are arriving without advance shipping confirmation. We're really sorry that the expectation was set that each of you would receive an e-mail.

      At the current daily rate and with a planned expansion in mid-October, we should finish fulfillment by the end of November (except for those horns coming by sea, which are guaranteed to arrive by end of calendar year).

      If you'd like to move your order to the top of the priority list, we'll need about $3.50."

      Of course, my immediate response was,"I ain't givin' you no three-fiddy, you god damned loch ness monster!!!"

      Just poking a little fun at the misinformation and lack of update this close to the finish line. No rush fellas :) I'm personally glad to see those that have received them are generally satisfied with how they turned out.

      Update: I received mine today (Wednesday 2013-09-11) via UPS Ground. It was a surprise, i.e. unheralded by any sort of email shipping/tracking notification. UPS web site shows it originating on 2013-09-06 from Fort Worth, TX.

      OBTW it's very nice :-)

      So much stress, just relax and get back on the wait train. The first time you ship a product out takes a while. its not like they have an established business already. CHILL

      Creator Scott Maberry (deleted) on September 10, 2013

      You'll next receive an email claiming they've shipped your Horn & they'll even give you a UPS tracking number (which UPS doesn't recognize). Then they wont answer any of your emails. This has to be a scam!
      I'll never participate in another Kickstarter project because of Das Horn!
      Live & learn!
