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.
