Update #13

Update #13 Addresses and shipping

Quick update

Supplies are arriving this week to the shop where the pens will be finished and post processed. This has taken longer than expected, but I want to be sure that every pen that gets shipped out is free of imperfections. I have spared no expense in this process and am working as hard as I can to get the pens done in order to finish shipping the first run and start shipping the second run. This has been a great learning experience and I thank you all for being so patient. Best case, all the supplies are in early next week and they start processing and shipping batches back to me late next week. As soon as I get pens in I will start fulfilling orders. On my end, all the ink, set screws, packaging, and shipping supplies are ready for when these pens come in. Once shipping starts again I will post another update and keep everyone up to date on the process. 

An hour ago I sent out address surveys to those of you in the second run. Please fill these out by the end of this week so I can start preparing labels for shipments. 

 Thanks everyone!

      Any more updates on 2nd run pens? Wondering if it's gonna make it here in time for Christmas.

      Are you hand delivering these pens yourself? I'm really looking forward to this pen - the industrial design is amazing, but the lack of any update is concerning.

      Janardan: Just in case you're making any plans that depend on it, I really wouldn't expect second run pens to be delivered by Christmas. I don't even think the rest of the first run (including myself) will get their pens before Christmas.

      Time for an update. We are now 14 days past the end of the "late next week" mentioned in your last update. First run and still waiting.

      I'm from the second run and am gonna keep my fingers crossed. I'm hoping to get this pen in time as a Xmas Gift.

      The big question for all who are waiting is, have you been notified that it has been shipped? - I was, got a USPS Trackingnumber, my pen made it to NY, then tracking stopped because they can't track international parcels apparently. Nothing has arrived yet- even though it has been shipped.

      I am still hoping it took the long way 'round and the USPS container arrives via Asia and a Suez passage.

      Hey, I was also in the first run and have not received anything. Its almost December now and Canada isn't that far. Update please.

      I was in the first run but still haven't received my item?

      Nothing received (UK) yet from the first run. Will we get shipping confirmation when they eventually ship?

    13. Missing_small

      Creator Lars on November 25, 2012

      Anyone in Europe received his/her first run pen? - Mine seems to have gotten lost... Over two months after shipping nothing has arrived yet.

      1st run back from reprocessing yet?

    15. Happiness.small

      Creator Janardan Nathan on November 14, 2012

      Quality work is always much more valued than something that's rushed out of a china factory.
      If I wanted a pen tomorrow I'd head down to a stationary shop, not to kickstarter. Which is why I'm sure most of us backers are the patient sort =)

      Sam,
      Of course not. First run pens are coming back from processing first and then second run pen will be shipped.

      so are first run backers that are yet to receive their pens going to start finding that some second run backers are getting theirs first?!?!

      Basic rule of project management: Take your worst case scenario and multiply it by 2 (better make it 3). :D Looking forward to receiving my pen.

      Great news!

      Your comments regarding prioritizing quality over expediency gave me peace of mind.

      Enjoy late Autumn!
