Production #11 - Who Bad? We Bad (in a great way :D)

Greetings Apprenti!!!!

Long Story Short, we are blasting through books! We have all of the $225 and $275 either cut out, assembled or already shipped by this point. For some reason, it would seem that UPS has not been properly sending out tracking numbers to the associated emails despite being provided on my part thanks to Backerkit. So if you are in the 275 or 225 Reward Tier and haven't received a tracking number, you can reach out to me and I'll look it up manually for you. Otherwise, you should be receiving your book in the mail by Mid-Sept at the latest (if you're in the US). If you haven't received anything by then, please let me know and we will get it sorted out! 

We will begin moving into the $150 & $175 Assembled Book Tiers starting this week!! That means we will be taking care of Early Bird Reward Tiers first, then moving onto the 175'ers. We are absolutely thrilled at the progress we are making :D (*knock on wood!)

BOOM! Two Tiers being Completed this Week, Starting the Yellow Codices!

I honestly can't explain just how overjoyed I am at our production speed! Provided I am able to get the laser started before 6 am, I can even push the lasers to be cutting out a max of 4 sheets a day!

However, this extra sheet will generally either consist of re-cuts of broken/missing pieces, Hinge Insert & Edge Panel sheets, or just good ole Coasters and Chests for various Backer orders. However, I wouldn't be surprised if we might start squeezing out a few extra books here or there as we continue to master the production process.
           
            

SCS/China Codices

The momentum on this side of matters is also beginning to collect steam as SCS is now entering it's final sampling stages of production and MIGHT even have their first batch of Codices ready right around Christmas time! 

Not only is it super exciting to have these folks moving forward; we are even considering using their assistance at making some of the books for any KS backer who doesn't wish to keep waiting for a 7 page book made directly by my team and our lasers. SCS are using the exact same files as we are, and they would only produce the 7 page versions for me directly, whereas the rest of their production will be focused solely on 5 pager books only. 

If there is enough backer interest at receiving one of these books made by SCS, we will look further into the idea of ordering a batch of these books while also making sure to steer clear of impacting our regular production.
    
     
    

That's all for now folks, time to get back to cutting, sanding, and assembling!
     

Much Love

The Codex Team

      Wow, excellent news, Brady, totally unrelated to me being the Early Bird $150 tier. ;-) Keep up the momentum and thanks a lot once again for your efforts and transparency!

      Looking great!

      The majority of the voucher books will be made by our team. At least that is the current plan, however if enough voucher holders also wish to reduce the wait time drastically, it is something we can certainly discuss further with SCS :)

      Will those with a voucher be able to pick from a book made by you or SCS?

      @Spencer - It appears you are part of the Non-Assembled $125 Tier. The tiers only relate to the initial reward that is offered, aka the Non-Assembled book. However, all add-ons are shipped WITH the main Reward item at the same time, to help save on shipping!

      what about the $205 backers? un-assembled book and the chest? which of those groups should we include ourselves in the $125 group?

      Really? I was wondering where the backer found such awesome imagery. Definitely not my work :)
