Dear friends,

I've spent most of this week sending out C-Cups and I'm a very pleased to report that I'm finished. As we speak there are C-Cups traveling throughout the world, and very soon there will be hundreds of happy backers - that I am sure of. Please let me know if there are any problems whatsoever. Also please let me know what you think of the C-Cup.

Since the campaign ended I've received many non-backer requests to purchase C-Cups, and now that I've taken care of you, dear backers, I'm going to open it up to the public. Our online shop is not quite fully set up yet, but if anyone asks you where they can buy a C-Cup, please direct them to this website: https://www.shopstarter.com/s/C-Cup/ 

I know, it looks like hell. Don't make fun of me.

Some of you are expecting more than one C-Cup, and you shall have them! It may be that you receive them on separate days, so don't be alarmed it you receive only one. If that's the case, the rest will follow in a day or two. It's not a very good mailing system I have here, but even at that it's a miracle if you really think about it.

Finally, there are a number of you who have yet to send me your address. Kickstarter will notify me when you do, and I'll get your C-Cups out to you just as soon as you let me.

Thanks once more to all of you for believing in our team. We nailed the product, we delivered on time, and we are all better off for it. I'm really looking forward to your reactions.

Sincerely,

Andrew

Dearest backers,

Great news: I've received a manufacturing sample of the C-Cup and I am very pleased. It fits our specs down to the molecule, and it functions amazingly well. I've gone ahead and requested the full shipment and will commence shipping to our backers very soon.

While we have been waiting for the arrival of the chamois and the actual C-Cups, we have gathered all of our packaging and shipping materials. Barring any unexpected challenges, I think we may have everything here as soon as next week sometime, and we will begin shipping to you just as soon as that happens.

I feel comfortable admitting now that I have been experiencing a bit of anxiety about getting these to you this month as I had originally estimated. Some 75% of successful Kickstarter campaigns ship later than estimated, and I was beginning to understand why as my inexperience gave way to the challenges of fulfillment. My partner and I stayed aggressive throughout, and now I feel confident we are going to be able to make it happen. That, along with my satisfaction with these manufacturing samples, has me feeling pretty good right now. I can't wait to hear your feedback on these, as I expect you're going to love them.

I'll be following this message with a survey so each of you can provide me with a shipping address (just as soon as I figure out how to send a survey through KS). I'll also send you a final C-Cupdate once we've got these things in the mail, and as always feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.

With gratitude,

Andrew

Hey folks. We are now 300 strong! Thanks for joining us Martin!

As we approach the final phase of this campaign, we are filled with excitement over the fact that this has come together. Thanks so much for believing in us, for backing the project, and for spreading the word.

As I write this, we are still about $2,000 shy of our $15K stretch goal, but I remain confident that we can reach that number. I think it will be easy actually, if we all post and tweet at the same time. In fact, I am so optimistic that I'm willing to gamble on it! 

So here is the deal: If in the next 50 hours you tweet a link to the Kickstarter campaign (exact text below), I will send you a chamois even if we don't hit the stretch goal! That's right, any backer who tweets will receive a FREE SHAMMY!

Here is the text I'd like you to tweet::

Check out this custom eyecup for the #Canon #C100 EVF! Last chance to back this @kickstarter project & get your #CCup http://kck.st/1h1oLEJ

Again, tweet the above text, and I'll include a free chamois with your C-Cup order(s) - even if we do not hit the stretch goal! Don't worry about it if your Twitter name or handle doesn't match your handle on Kickstarter - I will sort that out when it is time to ship.

Don't have a Twitter account? PM me and I'll give you some other options. And for the sake of clarity - if we do hit the stretch goal I'll send everyone one chamois per C-Cup.

Eyes on the prize. Literally.
