Risks and challenges
While we thoroughly planned all aspects of this project from the design to packaging - we want to make sure that we can deliver our project on time. In some forums, Kickstarter projects have a reputation of being delayed 1-3 months and we want to nip that stigma. While we feel comfortable shipping domestically, we wanted to make sure we were equally as effective shipping Internationally. In order to do so, we have decided it is better to utilized a 3rd party fulfillment company such as blackbox or Easypost. We have had conversations with both, and our confident both can do the job. The pledge rates in this campaign are at a discount -- regardless of who we use. We are excited to ship on time, accurately, and communicate the process to all our backers!
2) Production and lead time:
We are sourcing experts. We asked all the questions up front including capacity, lead time, potential customs challenges importing to the US, and anything that might slow down our project. While 'you don't know what you don't know' - we are confident we have addressed all aspects of our project. We are excited to deliver!
3) Quality Control:
Our manufacturing partner overseas is LFGB certified by UL. Additionally, they will continuously be inspecting the DUO glass throughout production. While each glass will be the slightest bit different due to the nature of being hand blown - we want to ensure the overall aesthetics are consistent across all the glasses manufactured.
