Tooling Update

Hi everyone!

Just wanted to provide a quick update on the tooling for the Versa Bricks.  The tooling is progressing well and we expect to be able to see the first samples off the molds in about 2-3 weeks.

Here are a few pictures:

 We are really pushing to be able to start shipping the rewards in March as planned.  The quality of the first samples will be the determining factor.  It is not uncommon to have to make minor tooling revisions when building new plastic injection molds.  We are keeping our fingers crossed!  If improvements / changes are needed it could push the delivery back by a few weeks.

I will provide the next update once the samples are received and reviewed. 

During the wait time for the tooling build we have been hard at work building an online store for Versa Bricks.  The address is versa-bricks.com  It is not up and running yet but feel free to spread the word!  Oh, don't worry, the Kickstarter backer will be the first to receive their Versa Bricks!

Hope your New Year is off to a great start!

Jerry
