A quick update on the progress of shipping.
All AUS orders have been sent - many people still haven't received their copy. If your book still hasn't arrived by Wednesday 26th please send us an email and we will provide tracking.
USA orders have left our studio - im waiting on an update from our freight forwarder. It looks like the pallets are waiting to clear customs. I was hoping to have more information before this update. The company im using inside the USA for distribution is ready to accept the order and has the final CSV shipping info.
EUROPE / JAPAN / ETC
These orders are being individually shipped out from our studio each week, we are focusing on each region. Unfortunately we have not been able to find a distributor to bulk ship the pallets. Shipping costs for these books is around $60 AUS per book due to the book new size and weight. We will create a seperate update for these regions with tracking as each order leaves our studio.
WHY THE DELAY
Im aware that many people are upset that they have not received their book and i promise we are working very hard to get them to you. As mentioned in previous updates after the amazing response to the campaign we invested that money back into the book. Adding allot more content and a hard cover etc. Our entail calculations of freight were based on the original book design, the new shipping quotes increased by 80%. International orders alone are costing an additional $17,000 beyond what we originally calculated. This is our studios error and im sorry for how the campaign has progressed, this book is now better than i could have ever expected and i hope when you receive it you will understand.
With out your support this project wouldn't exist and im very grateful to every contributor for their support and patience. We have been busy trying to find solutions and im confident we now have a way forward.
This book is part of a much bigger platform we are creating. As early adopters i will be looking to you to be part of that journey - i hope that once the campaign is fulfilled we can still work together to build Sketching Process into something incredible. Thank you all for your advice, feedback and patience.
