It all comes back to Mother's Day

Posted by Nicholas and Martha Desbiens (Creator)

Mother's Day is just around the corner, marking a full year from when this project first began. What an amazing year it has been! And to celebrate the anniversary, we have three pieces of good news to share. 

First, we're right on target with our production schedule.

We have over 150 vases printed and ready to be shipped out this weekend, so that they can get to your moms on time for their special day. If there's anyone out there with a May ship date who wants their vase in time for Mother's Day but hasn't uploaded and confirmed their photos yet: time is running out! You'’ll need to get those photos to us by Wednesday in order for us to model, print and ship your vase on time. 

Our next big shipment date will be the last week of May, for all of you very generous May backers who offered to wait patiently until the Mother’s Day orders were finished. (On behalf of all mothers, I say thank you!) The extended run vases will continue to ship throughout the summer. 

When you receive your vase, please let us know by posting a pic of you with your fahz on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.  We love to see our vases united with their faces!

The second big news is that we've been invited to take part in BKLYN DESIGNS.

BKLN DESIGNS is an internationally renowned, juried exhibition of the best furniture, lighting and home accessories made or designed in Brooklyn. A big thank you to Julio over at Kickstarter for getting the ball rolling for us on this very cool event. The show takes place Mother’s Day weekend at the Brooklyn Expo Center in Greenpoint. Stop on by to meet the faces behind the vases and see the fahz-o-matic in action! 

And finally, our third bit of news for Mother’s Day, and our most exciting...

We will be launching fahz SHOP in to coincide with BKLYN DESIGNS! Starting May 8th, you’ll be able to order vases at When we launch, please help us spread the word! We've had so much fun with this project and would love to see it continue to evolve.

Thanks everyone for your support!

      @Laurie Nelson: In most cases (and in yours), vases will be shipped in separate containers. You will likely see your 4 profile vase first. Hope you like it!

      I am so excited! Just wondering if you will ship my 2 vases together, or if I might get the one with 4 faces first! I don't need it sooner, but I sure am getting excited to see it. Thanks for being so helpful and nice!
