We were hoping to finally be able to announce our first shipments in this update but we hit a few minor bumps in the road on the final stretch to the finish line. The good news is that we are still on track to get the first set of shipments out on our original timeline of January with some shipments trickling into February.
The first problem we hit is our leather notebooks got lost in limbo while being handed off between freight companies. It seems the proper notifications weren't sent/received so the shipment sat in the corner of some warehouse for a week longer than it should have. We contacted the companies involved and it prompted them to hunt it down and get it moving again. We just received the shipment yesterday so all is good on that end. We will be doing some quality control and end of year inventory before putting everything together in January and sending them out.
The second issue we faced is that the initiative card tents just weren't up to the quality we expected. The samples we received from the printer were quite a bit different than what we received in our small test order. We have a few orders out with other printers that we had considered in the past and those samples will be here in the next few days for testing. Once we choose one that meets our expectations, we will have the order out ASAP and should receive them early to mid January.
We will be visiting family over the holidays but during that time we will be getting as much work done as we can while still enjoying our vacations :) I hope everybody has a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
