Pulp molded blister samples

Posted by Pierre-Louis Boyer (Creator)

Hey guys!

Production is going well, we just received the samples of the paper pulp molded blister.

Glad we could use paper rather than plastic. And I think it looks better than the glossy plastic blisters.

Note: surface finish has not be done on the mold yet (that's why you can see the circular shapes at bottom right). They just have to do a small correction and surface finish then they can make the parts and send them over.

That's it, just a quick update!

      @Jamie White: LOL! What!? ...only 6 month....! LOL!

      I'm still waiting for an BT scale since 3 years, and it doesn't look like it's gonna happen...

      So, 6 month is a really reasonable delay...

      But for the rest, you are right...
      Rare are the ones who get a realistic timeline right from the start.

      Since Pierre-Louis has already some XP here on KS (second project) you can bet he knows approximatively how things go...

      But you have to be a real clairvoyant to tell exactly when something happen, especially when you can't control everything, so Pierre-Louis is doing an excellent Job here!

      SO EVERYBODY: Don't stress about when... I, for myself am already happy I didn't fund a scam...and that's a real achievement, believe me!!

      So I don't care when I get my pledge, as long I get something, and not just nice words and hot air...

      Like French people would say:" Je tire ma révérence..." finally an campaign that came to an end and a good one on top of it... Over nice!! XD

      @Armand it will take about 2-3 weeks to ship them all. Then shipping is between 15 to 20 days usually. So I would say first ones will get them early august and last will be end of August. But it still needs to be confirmed.

      @Dan Custom retrorangepi is almost online!

      Kickstarter projects often fall behind schedule, one project I backed was over six months late on delivery.

      Hopefully we won’t have to wait much longer.

      I would say you have been plenty patient, Armand. I was hoping to have mine by vacation next week. Looks like that wont happen.
