Currently Stamping

Hey everyone! Today was a good day. We just received our freight of packaged deodorants and we've begun stamping them ... we're averaging about 300 an hour. We plan to have the entire order finished in the next 3 days and will start fulfilling orders by the end of day tomorrow.

I'll give you all another update at the end of the week but for now you can check out some clips from our Instagram Story below.

The stamper is made from brass and needs to be chilled in ice because when the metal heats up it will stick to the wax and mess up the impression.

All of the excess wax peels away easily once it cools but getting the perfect impression takes work

Fulfillment Starts End of Next Week!

14 likes

Hey Everyone - All is good and we're on track to fulfill your orders by the end of September as promised.

We ran into a problem with the containers a week ago but were able to amend the issue  in such a way that we didn't lose time on production. As I'm sure you all know, producing 5,000 of anything isn't easy but be encouraged! This isn't our first rodeo and we have a team of people ready to fulfill each order as soon as we receive the freight from the manufacturer.

In other news, as we wait for the shipment to arrive - I am building updates to our website that will make things easier for you all to manage any orders you may be interested in placing in the future.

Thank you for your continued support and I can't wait to share this new, betters smelling deodorant with you all.

Best,

Tyler Deeb

Production Starts!

Hello Backers,

All is good and we're looking forward to getting these rewards to you soon!

Manufacturing

Production is under way. Our manufacturer has received both fragrance mixtures and paper work, along with containers. All we need to do now is produce the stick formula, mix with our fragrances and fill the containers. I've also approved the labels for production. I'm so happy with how smoothly everything is going and we're on schedule to ship orders by the end of September.

Wholesaling

In other news, i've just returned from a trade show in NY where we had the opportunity to show retail stores from all around the world samples of the new deodorants, along with our other products. Be encouraged! These stores know what to look for and our deodorants were greatly received! Once we've shipped all of our backer orders we will start selling to a bunch of new retail stores.

Hello Backers!

I just sent out the BackerKit survey emails for Natural Deodorant by Misc. Goods Co. where you can choose your deodorant style, other order details and confirm your shipping information.

Please complete the survey as quickly as possible since we need this information to get production started so we can fulfill your rewards.

You will also have the opportunity to buy additional Misc. Goods Co. products as add-ons at the special Kickstarter prices (so if you want to plan ahead for the Holidays and get extra things for gifts ... we encourage you to get them while the price is low)

Those Add-Ons include the products that were exclusive to the Kickstarter campaign as seen below:

But also include many of our other products at a discounted price exclusively for our Kickstarter backers:

You'll be receiving your survey shortly — Please let us know if you have any questions.
