Higher pledge levels being packaged for shipping

Dear Backers,

This is a quick update to let you know that today we are doing final packaging for starting to ship the higher pledge levels which have been waiting on a couple items out of the total 11 products to be ready.

The $39 and $49 had already been shipping.

Now the $69, $79, $99, $139, $219 and $399 are all starting to ship.

The only ones which have not yet started to ship are the 4 levels with pre-loaded sketches and the pledge levels with A La Carte items, they will go into packaging and start to ship next week.

Below are some pics of the package inserts that we are packing up today.  Please note not everyone will ship today, we are starting today and running down the list.  Do not worry, we have not forgotten about you.  We have really taken a lot of effort to stress the details, right down the the pictures and the thickness of the cardstock paper along with the color laser printing for the clamshells.  Yes, it has taken longer then expected to launch these items, but we just could not compromise quality.  Thank you for being understanding and waiting on a product that we can be proud of.

Just as a reminder, as soon as your reward ships, you will get an email from ShipWrie (the fulfillment company), then you will also get another email from us that has the download links to the documents and the RFduino library and files.  Again, we are doing a controlled release to those who have had their rewards shipped already, which has helped quite a bit for us to do several updates to the documents already.  Within a couple weeks when the last of the shipments go out, everyone would have received the files already.

Please see the pics below:

Thank you all for your support and also thank you all for your wonderful emails to us about your RFduinos.  For those who have not yet to receive theirs, please hang in there with us just a bit longer, we're really close now to having them all out.

Will provide another update shortly.

Very Best Regards,
Armen

      Keep up the good work! Your attention to detail and pursuit of quality is admirable, time is just time. When I receive what you have created I will set myself the goal of making something with the same dedication to quality.

      Oh, opps. I misread "the $39 and $49 had already been shipping" to mean mine must have shipped by now. No worries, I'm not in a hurry.

      @Karan Checker - No, the $19 rewards "RFduino (with preloaded sketch)" have not been sent yet.
      From the update above: "The only ones which have not yet started to ship are the 4 levels with pre-loaded sketches and the pledge levels with A La Carte items, they will go into packaging and start to ship next week.")

      So, hopefully soon!

      Armen,

      I'm not sure if the $19 shipments have been sent already. Could you please clarify?

      Thanks,
      Karan

      Hmm, I don't see any pictures in the Update - shouldn't there be some?

      Hi Paul, Vincent,

      We are still in the process of shipping the $39 and $49 reward levels, we have not finished shipping all of them, if you have not gotten an email yet, it means you have not yet shipped. There will be 2 emails you will get, there is little chance of anything falling in between the cracks. We are spending a lot of time to make sure everyone is taken care of.

      We have had many people that did not provide a full address so we have been in heavy dialog with hundreds of backers to confirm information and it's been taking a lot of time, so we are very much on it and you can count on us not missing anyone.

      Thanks for hanging in there with us, I think you will really like your RFduinos.

      Best Regards,
      Armen

      I'm a $39 backer. So far, no email, nothing arrived. Any chance you could check on my shipment?

      No hurry. I'm not impatient, just want to make sure mine didn't somehow fall through the cracks?

      Hi. I am at the $39 level and I have not received any shipment confirmation or any other mail regarding my pledge. Could you please confirm that my package is on the way?
