Recent updates

I have returned from Germany, having picked up a lot of information, and a bit of a cold. Though a bit under the weather I wanted to post an update.

Regarding the keychains that got chewed up by the USPS, I ordered some new, bubble padded envelopes and will send out the replacements this week for those that had contacted me or left comments here on Kickstarter.

If there's anyone else with damaged merch, just leave a comment here or send me a message and I'll send it out right away.

Just got the sample print for the shirts and this one is better, save one detail. Just in case, I'm insisting on seeing another sample with the update before I authorize the full run. It'll add a few more days but I want to avoid more issues later on.

Regarding the Germany business trip, it went really well. I met a great group of people who gave me tours of their operations and we talked, brainstormed, and met with investors and such.

Very productive, everyone seemed pleased with the new prototype and though there are a few hurdles to refining the design, they are not insurmountable. They have a lot of resources in place, including engineers and product designers, and experience with production and such.

I can't say too much more right now, but I hope to have a big update within a week or so.

Talk to you soon!

Also, 'Power Laces LLC' is now an official entity- I received the incorporation documents the other day :D

I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving!

Just wanted to give an update:

There was an issue with the T-Shirt printers so that has fallen behind, but we hope to get them in a couple of weeks. In the mean time the stickers and keychains are in the mail for the $5-$15 backers.

Sorry for the delay- we're on the phone with them every day to expedite the order.

Some big news though- I'm flying out tonight to meet with a manufacturer! Very exciting to see this project getting closer to reality.

Happy Holidays everyone and I'll update you upon my return.

Logo II

Posted by Blake Bevin (Creator)

After a lot of great submissions, we picked the final Power Laces logo! It's been sent to the printers and we'll begin the merchandise within the next few weeks. Once we have it all together we'll start mailing it out. If you haven't yet send in your address!

Most of the equipment has been moved to the new workshop- just a matter of unpacking and getting some raw materials together.

Exciting stuff!
