Almost Ready to ship out your Rewards!

 Hello Golden Spike Backers, 

Just wanted to give you all an update to the progress of your reward shipment.

I was hoping to have your rewards out to you by now. The main hold up has been Chinese New year. CNY delayed the wood box completion for an extra month. The good news is, they have finished the box and should be airing them in the next couple of weeks. I also had to make the box smaller, because it added too much shipping cost to the whole project. It will be the size of the two deck box I made for previous projects.

I also came across an issue with the production of the tuck box. I felt, after seeing the final sample, the quality was not up to the expectations that you all have of my decks. The decks that I produce are higher quality than what you find in Wall-Mart, so it has to meet a certain level of quality and the final sample did not.

I had to have the printer reprint all of the tuck boxes and add an emboss plate, change the color of the paper to a red and not a white and change the gold to something more elegant (it was goudy). I will be seeing the final product here in the next day or so and I will post some pics for you all to see.

All that to be said, we should be sending out the rewards next week.

Sincerely,

Jody
