Production ramping up
Production update: The glass process changes were successful, yield has improved, and the factory ramped up production. The assembly line is completing 2000 Portholes this week and plans to continue at roughly that rate until the Kickstarter edition is complete. We expect to receive the 2000 in five weeks and in about another week, they should be in backers' hands. The rest should follow in two more bi-weekly waves.
In terms of the 160 that were supposed to ship last week, our printer producing the kit box, recipe cards, and shipping boxes had to postpone due to an equipment failure. I was at the printer yesterday for a press check of the recipe cards and the kit box that holds the Porthole, tea, and glasses along with the recipe cards, few images are below. All packaging components should be finished this week and the Porthole kits will ship after the weekend.
Thanks again for your patience. Have a great week!
