Final, Final Inspection
Today, in our offices, we completed a highly satisfactory inspection of Sensu brushes with the revised design. We are very pleased to announce that everything passed muster. We will ship to our backers from this production, which will be complete next week, and in our hands on the 27th or 28th. We plan to inspect, pack, and ship for the remainder of the week with final packages shipping Tuesday the 3rd of April. These shipments will include only chrome brushes.
All gunmetal limited edition brushes will ship by April 15th. This short run of brushes in a special finish could not be plated sooner than that. Sorry. Anyone who ordered a combination of chrome and gunmetal will receive their brushes in two shipments to avoid making anyone wait longer to play with their new toys.
Surveys will be sent tomorrow to request your current shipping details.
Until we receive your completed surveys we have no way of telling which backers are from North America and which are international. We will also learn, for the first time, who has included appropriate shipping charges with their original pledge amount.
If you have not paid shipping fees, we will send you a PayPal invoice by email. These invoices will include a link and simple instructions for making a payment on the PayPal website. There are fees involved on our end, but we will absorb these in order to assure a smoother transaction. There are no additional fees for you to make your payment by this method.
Here's what you have to look forward to: people are raving about Sensu! We got fantastic feedback from our beta-buddy testers over the last few weeks. Several comments were posted on the comment feed on our Kickstarter page. Some highlights:
Guido: "It's great!...painting apps will never be the same. It's truly a great painting experience...also great build quality.
Margi: "Gorgeous to look at, feels awesome and is weighted to perfection."
Michelle: "I am thrilled with the look and feel of the brush. I paint daily with actual paints and love to do studies on my iPad. The Sensu brush makes much easier work of that! It feels and glides like a high-quality brush, only without the messy cleanup."
We are so excited to finally share Sensu with you all. We thank you all for your patience through a longer process than we hoped would be necessary. We really look forward to hearing from you as you get your brushes and start to paint.
