Last update before shipping

So I figured I'd make it easy for everyone to know when things ship, since I've been getting lots of "have these shipped yet?" messages since July first. We've got all the rewards assembled as you see above, except the red- they're still not in yet. We're boxing up the rest right now (and into next week), and we've got tabs and hardware ready and on standby for when the red comes in. Ultimately this means we'll be shipping later into July, probably another two-three weeks for most reward levels to go out. While I had hoped to be done this and/or next week, delays do happen and we're lucky this is the only one. At least we're still on track to hit the ultimate goal of July shipping even if it's going to be the end of July!

I will update again when everything ships off to the fulfillment center and is on it's way to all of you. Until then, I apologize if I'm not able to answer all messages and comments about shipping times, I've tried to put it all in this update. Some family health issues will have me splitting my time between my workshop and the hospital for the next two to three weeks, so internet time might have to take back burner to working in the shop and eating questionable cafeteria food while sleeping on a cot (I'd much rather be emailing and messaging!). 

Hope everyone had a good 4th of July!

      ("putting on my … belt on"? I need coffee.)

      Just thought of this after putting on my now-three-year-old Corter belt on this morning. Greatly looking forward to receiving it – and don't worry about the delay, you're doing great!

      Nearly the end of July! :D

      I appologize for sounding callous. I didn't realize it would add that much work. I've been in and out of the ER lately and can sympathize. Good luck with everything. Ill just buy twist offs for the time being.

      Is it possible for us to change our address? This delay pushes the ship date past a move my wife and I are making. If not, we understand; we'll be praying for you and your family in this hard time.

      hopefully your family situation will resolve positively.

      Sorry about your family heath issues. hope it all gets resolved. July is July as it is on the 1st as it is one the 31. Give the guy a break.
      Thanks for the update.

      Very sorry guys, in order to make things totally doable both with family and the bottle hooks I've got to eliminate as many steps as possible because there just aren't enough hours in the day. Two shipments would be about 3 days extra work separating things, and that's time I've got to be at the hospital. I just ask your patience while I do my best to get everything taken care of both professionally and personally, sometimes when it rains it really does pour.

      Super bummer. I wanted my pewter one for my birthday on the 7/28. You cant ship twice?

    12. Norris Lewis on July 5, 2012

      and i was so hoping this was finally the update where they shipped...
