The time is here. According to the information I have, the factory is most likely going to schedule pickup of our shipment around Wednesday of next week. They expect to be done with packaging on Tuesday.
This means that we are about to lock in the addresses, so you will need to log into Backerkit and update your shipping information if you need to. It's a good idea to double check anyway. We will be locking those in place in about a week.
Due to the impending tariffs scheduled for the end of the month, we opted to pay for Air Freight shipping from China, so the up side of that is that fulfillment should begin in about 3 to 4 weeks instead of 8 weeks. The down side is the additional $7,000 it's going to cost (above our original shipping budget) to keep out from under the potential 25% tariff. It's a crappy situation, but it was spend the additional $7K to avoid potentially $50K+.
I'll be ordering the t-shirts/stickers in the next few days so that hopefully we'll have them on hand to ship out with the orders once they arrive. If not, we'll let you know and make other arrangements. You can always find all recent updates and photos on the Facebook page.
