final sprint + replacement dime screws
Hope you are well and staying cool!
Our final batch of 474 pens is scheduled to ship from China to us on August 7th.
We currently have approximately 1000 pens at our studio that are waiting for new dime screws. We ended up rejecting around 1000 dime screws that were not according to our specifications. Sigh, we know. We are having this part remade in Vermont. These replacement dime screws are scheduled to ship to us by Aug 12. Yes, this means a lot of the remaining pens will be Vermont/China hybrids.
If all goes according to plan, we will ship out another ~1474 pens by the end of next week (Aug 17).
The remaining pens (should be around 500)...(don't worry we didn't forget about the rest of you!!!) are scheduled to ship from China at 2 week intervals after the August 7th shipment. They will ship a maximum of 480 pens at a time. These final pens are ones that are being replaced because they were rejected by us during quality control.
We will update you with more news as it comes.
Thank you for your incredible patience. Soon! you will all have your pens. Hang in there. You are awesome. This is the final sprint!
