Hey Backers great news! All the Parrot Teleprompters have been shipped! We worked hard to get these all out by Saturday May 30th as promised!

I know I have been very quite for the last few weeks, so I will walk you through what we have been working on. Originally we had planned to have our manufacturer assemble the teleprompters. Unfortunately, they recently notified us that they did not have the manpower required to assemble all of our teleprompters. So we started assembling right away!

 Luckily we had some help from our friends and family. We had a lot of late nights and long days, but it was a lot of fun. Thank you guys!

 We managed to assembled over 600 teleprompters in our small office assembly station.

 We then had to work on packaging and shipping your teleprompters.

 We then took loads of teleprompters to the post office. Unfortunately, I didn't think to take any pictures until we shipped the last few boxes of teleprompters. We easily filled the car up on previous loads.

 Our last few boxes were completed after hours, so we had to deliver the teleprompters via the secret back door where the teleprompters were then picked up and shipped out.

 So there you have it. If you live in the US you can expect to receive your teleprompter within the next few business days. If you live in another country it should arrive in 6-10 business days. Keep in mind that sometimes a package can get stuck in customs for a little while. You should have received a tracking number to help you identify where you package is at. If you have any questions about your order feel free to email us at support@parrotteleprompter.com

Don't worry this isn't the last you will hear from us. We have some updates coming up on the Parrot Teleprompter app, instruction manual, news as well as future projects we are working on.

 Thanks again for taking this journey with us. We truly could not have done this without each of you! We can't wait for you to receive your teleprompters and for all the great things you will do with them. Please let us know what you think about your Parrot Teleprompter!

Sincerely,

Brigham Arce and the Parrot Teleprompter team!

      Thanks again for sending the teleprompter. It looks and performs exactly as promised. Looking forward to the teleprompter app. I'm really hoping it has some form of remote control (using the earbud volume controls or maybe Bluetooth with another smartphone).

      Brigham, just wanted to say great job and thanks for the extra effort it no doubt took to get these out on time (above and beyond the challenges you described in this post.) Really well done!

      Cute little thing. I bought it to possibly do my own Kickstarter.

      LOVE MY PARROT! It was certainly worth the wait. I (and think I can speak for others) appreciate the extra effort to get this neat little teleprompter delivered ASAP. This is one item that will always be in my camera bag.
