Update #14

Shipped!

Here's the update everyone's been waiting for....we're finally done! All hooks are at the fulfillment center and have been shipping since Wednesday. They'll be going out into next week and arriving to you shortly after. 

I'm psyched we made the July date, and I completely understand now how difficult it is to get all the parts of a project like this to come together. What they don't tell you is that designing the product is the easy part if you're a first timer like I am - it's learning about ASN's, SKU's, package weights, envelope shapes, production and timing 8 different suppliers that takes the most time. It was a really crazy crash course that you don't get in the leatherwork books!

I'm happy to say that the Bottlehook design is now patent pending, and while I'll continue to update every now and then I can't thank you all enough for helping me bring this product to life. It's been a wild ride and continues to be the little-bottle-opener-that-could; I hope it brings you all as much enjoyment as it's provided me. 

For those looking to buy Bottlehooks, they're available here: www.corterleather.bigcartel.com

For those wanting to follow along with what happens next at Corter Leather, the new Tumblr page is where it's at for updates, production photos, and (coming soon) the build out of the new workshop and website www.corterleather.tumblr.com 

Lastly, I won't be checking this page very often in the future, so please send any questions, comments, or inquiries to corterleather (at) gmail (dot) com.

      Still waiting on my bottle hook, shipment to Singapore usually take 7 days. It's been almost 2 weeks if the item was shipped on Wednesday the 25th. Anyone else in Asia still waiting for their hooks?

      Received mine down in Ft. Lauderdale, FL today. The green tab is a bit darker than I thought it would be but it looks fantastic either way.

      Creator Eric Heins on July 29, 2012

      Glad you all like them!

      Billy- it's actually very dark green (not black), the color will come through as you use it. They're not individually numbered, 000002 was the SKU of that color way used by the fulfillment center!

      Creator Billy Wellen on July 29, 2012

      Got mine! Silver color, with the lether tag being green speckled and manufacture print stamped on one side, black "if found, contact" on the other.
      My box was labelled "000002" in the upper left, does that mean I got #2 of the $40 pledge? Or this is "type two" ?
      Excited to put it to good use!!
