About

I guess you're wondering where I have been. Almost right after the launch of Kickstarter, an unexpected and surprising development occurred within Bevis Gear that pretty much took all my attention. This made it impossible for me to give the time and effort necessary to this campaign. For this reason, we will be suspending our Kickstarter campaign effective immediately, I want to thank everyone for your support and trust in The Top Shelf, and hope that you will keep in touch with us at info@bevisgear.com, and please note that those who have supported us will be welcomed with open arms.

Thanks again and have a great day.


With Warm Regards,

Shawn

Risks and challenges

Matt and I have spent many sleepless nights reviewing every stage of our business plan. To get this product ready for Kickstarter we have reached out and networked with all of our friends and family to make everything come together. All we need now is a show of support and we can finish our dream project and transform the future of camera carrying cases forever.

MANUFACTURING

We're quite aware that a product named "The Top Shelf" better be just that...Top Shelf!

Although we do not anticipate any bumps along the way, one never knows. We suppose there is the possibility that a part of THE TOP SHELF could be suddenly discontinued or something else that pops up. Whatever the case, should something arise, we will address it promptly and professionally and in a timely manner. Our Backers are Everything to us, and we don't take this lightly.

To prevent any possibility of delays we are also setting up back-up suppliers for both of our material and sewing needs, as well as for our plastic mold requirements, to handle any size orders. This should allow us to avoid any delays or surprises in production and shipping.

PRODUCT DESIGN CHANGES

It is possible, that as we approach M-Day (manufacturing day) we may be able to squeeze in yet another improvement to the Premier Edition of "The Top Shelf", which then, may cause a few days delay to implement. Whichever path we take, we promise we will keep you informed!

So, keep your ideas coming in! It will help keep "THE TOP SHELF" on the Top of your list for many years to come and, we will always give our TOP SHELF KickStarter buyer friends, a great upgrade deal.

FULFILLMENT

We will be working alongside our manufacturers who have years of experience delivering excellent products in tremendous quantities, on time and on budget. If we run into anything that might slow down production, our Backers will be the first to know. We have sourced out industry professionals in these areas and do not expect any delays.

Any pledge amount brings us one step closer to our goal. Help us bring "The Top Shelf" to the photography world by clicking the "Back This Project" button at the top of the page, or by helping us spread the word by sharing our page.

**SHIPPING THE TOP SHELF**

The shipping options and exact costs will be presented in the survey, for you to choose, based on your location. If it is less than the requested shipping amount in your pledge, you will be given some more options including a refund of the difference in shipping costs.
