Shipping Begins! (...and Super Backer Special Reward Announcement!)
Hi all, great news! The first Roosts are coming off the production line this week!
In this update:
- ADDRESS UPDATES and SHIPPING NOTIFICATIONS: Look out for "Last Call to Update Your Address" email from us!
- Production Details and Updates
- Super Backer Limited Edition Rewards
Firstly, the new Roost has only been made possible because of YOU. Thank you! And thank you for the extreme patience as we have blazed our way thru the first ever new Roost production run. It has been an adventure!
Your pledge to make this Roost a reality has allowed us to work with 10 companies involving 40+ people gaining new work and business directly from this Kickstarter campaign. There is lots of excitement for the new Roost for all involved.
You will receive an email from us, with subject: "Last Call to Update Your Address for Roost Laptop Stand". In that email is a Link to your order and address. If you have an address update, follow that link to update your address. You will have 48 hours to make any address updates.
"When will my Roost ship?"
1. You will receive the "Last Call..." email approximately 1 week prior to your Roost shipping.
2. When your Roost ships, you will receive another email with tracking info.
Roost Shipment Dates
Roosts are shipping in order of Backing Date. And we are geared up to ship the first ~4000 Roosts next week and the following week. So if you pledged in the first couple of weeks of the campaign, you should see shipping notification soon. If you pledged in last couple of weeks of campaign, please plan on waiting until early January for shipping notification.
(All Custom Engraved Roosts are being engraved end of next week. And we plan to ship those early the following week).
To date, we have over 60 "Machine-Days" of Roost production complete. (A "Machine-Day" is a 24 hour day, many injection mold machines run 24 hours around the clock!).
Parts start by being molded at the "press".
We fill hundreds of boxes worth of parts.
Boxes of parts then get palletized and readied for assembly line.
Pallets of parts make their way to the assembly line upstairs.
Here our Pin Insertion Machine is in action. The Pin Insertion Machine saves TONS of times when you have to repeat something 30,000+ times!
The RKM Cases arrived via a huge truck. We are ready to ship!
Super Backer Limited Edition Rewards
For one time only, we have produced two color variants of the Roost that are going to all those who participated in the Roost Super Backers program.
Limited Edition Inverted Colors: If you signed up to be a Super Backer, but weren't able get any new KS backers, you still get a Limited Edition Roost! See color scheme below. ~400 of these are being made.
Serialized Limited Edition All-Black: Only ~50 of these Roosts will ever be made. If you participated in the Super Backers and had 1 or more people back the Roost Campaign, you are getting a very special Roost!
If you are in either of these groups, no action is necessary, we will automatically ship you the correct Limited Edition Roost! (If you ordered more than 1 Roost and are in these groups, unfortunately we are only able to send 1 Limited Edition per backer).
