Thanks for the update!
Quick comment thread update for folks. The notebooks are on their way to the freight companies warehouse, so hopefully they start making their way up the west cost before the end of the week.
@Justin The Cargo shop may have arrived at port, but there's still several steps before we actually receive the notebooks. All 165 boxes must clear customs, the boxes/cargo container must be picked up by our logistics company, that may need to got to an LA warehouse for them to load on a smaller truck, that smaller truck then must be driven from LA to us in Portland where we can finally consider ourselves as having the notebooks.
We'll share some victory pictures once the all 165 boxes are safely received.
Based on the tracker you should now have the notebooks.
@Katrina It'll be unlikely we could have it delivered to your current address on time, so go ahead and change your address now.
If anyone is interested in watching the notebooks progress across the Pacific, you can follow the cargo ship they're on here: https://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ais/details/ships/shipid:733554/mmsi:566999000/imo:9385025/vessel:HYUNDAI_NEW_YORK
How long will it take for notebooks to get here once they ship? I am moving in about 3 weeks, so if they are going to take a while to ship once they start shipping, it might be better for me to change the address now.
Thank you for the Stray update. I've watched the videos too many times and am pleased they turned out as well as I didn't dare hope they would. :-)
@Sophia / Everyone. You are still able to update your BackerKit survey with a new address for a couple more weeks now. You can either access your survey using the email BackerKit sent you, or go to https://elemental.backerkit.com/ and type in the email you used for your pledge in Kickstarter. If for some reason this isn't working for anyone, feel free to message us here and we'll make sure it gets worked out.
Hi there -
Not sure the best way to contact you for this, but I am moving in a week and would like to change the address given when I originally filled out the form. Is that possible? Thanks so much!!
I would really like to see an update. Is everything going great? Everything on track? What's going on?
@Tim. We will be using USPS for all US deliveries so a P.O. Box should work out great.
Thanks for the update about the manufacturer. I'm considering whether to use a secure postal delivery system for Kickstarter orders. Will your shipping method for the notebooks allow for shipping to PO Box addresses?
Sorry for the decrease in communication lately. Waiting on manufacturing is ultimately really boring so we've chosen not to spam almost a thousand peoples inboxes with updates saying that the notebooks are still being assembled.
They will tentatively be shipping out from our manufacturer in about 2 weeks, so we'll certainly be sending out a formal update once we know they're on the ship.
Some of the fun of backing a project is seeing how it is evolving. Unfortunately, the frequent communication we saw prior to the end of the campaign in which there were regular updates no more than 2 weeks apart is no longer.
It’s now been 60+ days and only 1 update. Please keep us informed, if only a quick comment on here.
Hey, Just curious how this projects coming along! Supper excited to get these!!
I’d love an update! Are these still on track for June?
How’s that update?
@Barbara We will have an update going out this week. Latest samples are in hand, but our camera gear is currently boxed up since we moved this weekend. Stay tuned!
It's been a month. How about an up date. Pictures of the samples and shipping material. Still going to be able to ship in June?
I'm going to write down all my favorite cuss words.
@Thomas You will be able to add on Unobtanium and pay any required shipping fees as part of the backer survey. You should receive the survey in about 15 days.
Hello. I couldn't figure out how I could increase my pledge for the unobtanium notebooks.can i still do that at the same time as paying shipping? Thanks and well done.
Congratulations on meeting the goal. Yet another reason to be eager for the start of summer in June. Thanks for your hard work. Jim
Thank you so much! I hope it works out, but I can always hand index and number like I do now. Thanks for creating this awesome product, too.
@Kristen We, unfortunately, cannot officially unlock the index and page numbers as part of the live campaign since we just haven't met the print minimums per Element needed to print them that way. That being said, we are definitely going to see what we can do to get those print minimums lowered with our printer since we're going to be putting in such a sizable order.
Hopefully, we have some good news about this to share over the next couple weeks.
Wow! Great final push going! Is there any chance you could "sweeten the pot" by "unlocking" the index and page numbers? That would make these notebooks perfect, and might just push things to the next level. I'm looking forward to my four notebook set. :)
@Javier, that is correct
I got to this quite late, and I'm new to Kickstarter. I backed for the four notebooks, which is $65+$15 shipping=$80 to Spain. Then I increased the total to $90 to include the Unobtanium. As far as I understood from previous comments, to get two more notebooks I have to wait until the end of the campaign and then I will have the chance to add two more. I would be grateful to have any confirmation.
Stickers will be awesome. Just increased my pledge to include Unobtainium. Congratulations on unlocking 4.
Increased my pledge for Unobtanium, congrats on unlocking all 4 colors. I really wish we could get the page numbers and index/table of contents though! Those features really make a notebook versatile and useful. Either way, looking forward to this project.
@Paul Sorry that we most likely won't be able to print those for you as part of the Kickstarter. Depending on how things go over the next few months, we're going to try our best to do another set of print runs with Lined and Blank this summer. Thanks for sticking with us on the Dot Grid too!
I can handle dots. :)
We only have to double, plus a few thousand more to get to the stretch goal I want lol. Lines!!!
Personally, I’m super into stickers, but really like the idea of the poster as well. But stickers would be MY first choice from the achievement stuff.
@Jeffrey We just updated the achievement counts. There are currently 18 elements discovered.
Depending on how high the final shipping costs end up being, we're considering still getting some smaller prints of the periodic table done or printing the Elemental stickers. Was there something specific you were hoping for out of the Achievements?
Where are we on achievements
Went ahead and added to my pledge as Nitrogen is now available, woot!
There increased my pledge 40k now ;)
@Anja: The blue pen in the top picture is a TWSBI Eco-T blue (limited edition).
I've been curious for a while and figured I might as well ask: what's the pen in the pictures called? Love it!
I really hope we'll make the 40k mark for Nitrogen! Really looking forward to the notebooks :)
These look really cool. Looking forward to my four books and I added on three packs of the Unobtanium. Wooooo hoooooo! These look awesome!
@Chanelle After the campaign is finished, you will have the option to include additional notebooks as Add-Ons to your pledge. They will be available at the same price as your pledge level, so if you back 4 notebooks you can add extras for $16.25 each.
Upped my pledge to include the unobtanium books! Hoping I might be able to up it to the 8 book level later (alas, tuition comes first :( ). Any chance there can be a tier of donation for 6 books? I'm planning to give two of the books as gifts, however, I have an inkling that two will be more popular with the recipients than others, and would love to still have one of each for my own household!
@Shane As long as the campaign finishes over $40k, we’re going to go ahead and print Nitrogen for those who want it. Nevertheless, the closer we get to $45k, the better :)
Really hoping Nitrogen makes it! That green is really speaking to me.
I would definitely pay the extra for the add-on of Unobtainium!
Yay, Oxygen! Did Unobtanium make Oxygen obtainable quicker? 😁 Yes, I added on a couple packs. Excited!
@Paul Thanks for sticking with us anyways! Hopefully we can get another round of printing lined up this summer with some lined notebooks for you.
Wish we would hit 90K. I prefer lines. Ah well. I’ll still be here for dots lol.
