      I too have sent multiple messages both here and via email, as I have not received my backer reward. Disappointing to say the least.

      Are you still checking the kickstater page? I sent the message several times, but I got no reply. I pledged $75, but I have not received the reward yet. I was supposed to receive this 10 months ago. Not cool :/

      Hi, I still have not received my backer reward either, and I've received no communication, although I have left comments on the last Update on this site, have sent emails, Facebook messages, and left a voicemail at the shop. Can I please get an update on the situation? Thanks.

      Hello, I have not received my backer reward yet and have not received any communication regarding when I would receive it when I inquired.

      I also never received my backer reward and wanted to get a status update.

      Received my certificate for the research group in the mail the other day and was wondering if you guys are automatically shipping stuff out to people or if I need to somehow turn it in to receive the items. Thanks!

      Thanks guys, the box looks awesome. Can't wait to try. Hope you have a wonderful holiday and after all is said and done, I'd like to figure out how to order again.

      Unfortunately I will not be in town. I will have to schedule a pick up when I get back so please save on shipping it. Can't wait to see the shop and wear your t-shirt with pride!
