Shipping has started!
I'll be honest here...
The Cerakote coating process is proving trickier than we thought. We're still making progress - but just a little slower than we'd like.
Without going into too much detail about it... we're finding there are loads of factors to take into account when mixing and spraying each pen. Outside humidity and temperature are proving to have significant effects on the end result.
But, like I said, progress is being made...
By the end of today we will have at least 40 pens already shipped (and so around 1/3 of the way there in terms of shipping Rewards).
We will not get the rest done this week - I know that for sure. But we will definitely get a load more out before the week is out.
I'm crossing my fingers that we will have them all done and shipped by the end of next week.
Usually I can predict when all Rewards will get shipped (because we typically get all the products ready in one go ...and then "blitz" the packing and shipping).
However, because of the Cerakote process, we're doing short runs of around 6 x pens at a time (with some parts of the pen not making quality control and having to be re-done ...but we're improving on this each day).
Here are the first ten that were finished a few days ago:
