Random Shipping Update

Hi Everyone,

Some of you have started to receive your AL13’s and we are super excited!! The positive comments we have received so far have truly made the process worth it. We’ve had the best backers in the world! Thank you for sticking with us and always encouraging us along the way.

Now, for some housekeeping:-

Installation - AL13 installation is easy, but just in case we’ve attached an installation guide to this update to lend you a hand if you need it.

Signal Loss - If you are on a good network, the minimal signal loss from AL13 should not make a difference. In our tests, the signal loss was 5-10% compared with other metal bumpers that can cause up to 20%+ signal loss. If you are on a poor network and are already experiencing difficulty then you may notice a problem. Not sure about your network? Conduct your own field test.

Tracking - You can track your package using the tracking number provided at You will be able to follow your package as soon as it ships and get updates on its progress and estimated arrival date. Please be mindful that USPS updates their system in the evening once per day, so please allow time for the updates. Note:- If you track before the system is updated chances are you will see old tracking data If this number doesn’t update within 48hr contact us.

Lost Shipments – For domestic backers, if you do not receive your AL13 within 15 days Contact us. For International Backers, please contact your local post office after 30 days if that doesn’t work contact us.

Don't forget we've launched the official designed by m website at and AL13 will be available for anyone who didn't get a chance on Kickstarter. Please join us on Facebook, Instagram and follow us on Twitter.

We’re coming to end of the ride and all I can say is that it has been an amazing journey from start to finish. Thank you for allowing us to create this product we so believed in. Thanks for the feedback and for being a part of our team. We’re extremely grateful for your awesome support. Until the next project!!

J + Les M.

      I just got my case, haven't yet determined the signal drop issue yet. But the case itself is gorgeous, as is the packaging. Nice attention to detail.

      I concur with the estimates for signal attenuation- I regularly find drops of 9-10% to be the norm. That makes a difference in at least three of the locations I often use the phone, alas.

      just got the packaging, not sure what I am going to use it for but the box is damn the bumper. I must say my white iphone looks awesome wrapped in the blue. I am used to using an otterbox...its going to take some serious time to used to my phone no longer weighing a ton. Love it

    8. Pierre-Luc Dubé on May 1, 2013

      Never mind ... I got the tracking number :D

    9. Chaim Gross on May 1, 2013

      Just to follow up ... Got home last night with my bumper waiting for me (beautiful packaging and never said that about packaging before) and never received the email with my tracking number.

      You can keep your tracking number, I got a great case!

      I have spent and wasted a ton of money on iPhone accessories over the years. The AL13 is by far the BEST thing I've every bought for my iPhone. I can't imagine ever taking this bumper off my phone! And the Kickstarter green is beautiful. I absolutely love it. THANK YOU!! ps - sexy packaging!

    11. Edgar C. Rodríguez on April 30, 2013

      still waiting for my tracking number.

    12. Andrew Beard on April 30, 2013

      Any idea when shipping will be complete and we should have all received tracking numbers? It seems like a lot of backers are in the same boat here.
