Our Kickstarter project will close on October 21, 2011. If we are successfully funded, Amazon will transfer funds to us around November 8th. With these funds we will secure the materials to make all of the brushes ordered by backers. Production will begin immediately. Initial production brushes should be available just 45-60 days later. Initial stock will be air-shipped within approximately one week to Chicago where we will fulfill all Kickstarter orders.
