Samples are in!

Last week we received the first pour cap samples and the look and color is stunning.  We have been testing these on different jars, running through the dishwasher, and using them in multiple applications.  Two things we learned...1) the mold needs a couple of tweaks and 2) we need a special tool to install the gasket. 

What's the status?  The mold is being reworked and the gasket fixture is in development.  I expect it to take another week for new samples, then production the following week.  The new planned ship date is last week of March.  Hang in there folks, THEY ARE COMING!  The response rate on the shipping survey is 96%!

In addition, we gave a dozen sample parts to stARTup incubator to send out for packaging design ideas and hope to have results in two weeks.  We are beginning website development as well.
