Hi everyone! Many of you have written in and asked how we are post-Hurricane Sandy. Luckily, the store made it through storm and we re-opened this past Sunday. New York itself is getting back to normal. There is definitely a bit of a depressed energy, but it's picking back up each day. We thank you all for your messages and words of encouragement.
We are starting the trial stages of shipping, and as promised, some of our kickstarter backers are getting the first shot at participating in our trial runs. If you are located outside of the NYC area and are interested in being a guinea pig, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with SHIPPING TRIAL [YOUR STATE] in the header. Please include your contact info in the email. We will randomly pick a handful of people to participate and we will contact you if you've been chosen.
While we will cover all of the expenses regarding the cupcakes, we are going to ask that our participants cover the shipping costs, so please consider this if you want to be part of our trial. In addition, since this is an exclusive and hush hush operation, participants will be required to sign a small contract to make sure nothing hits the interweb prematurely. We will also need you to take a few photos and fill out a short survey. Basically, you guys are going to help us get the kinks out before we take over the cupcake world.
Finally, we haven't forgotten about your rewards. We put the final approval on the aprons and keychains a few days ago, so they should be arriving to us in a week or so.
Thanks everyone! Happy November.
