Shipping Update & Production Update #3

Posted by FCTRY (Creator)
26 likes

Hello Backers!

Thank you to everyone who got their shipping survey in! We're charging forward with the fulfillment process and want to update you on the latest shipping status. First off, we won't be shipping during the month of September as we previously (and optimistically) estimated, and for that, we're sorry. After meeting some production delays, our updated shipping timeline is as follows: Orders will be shipping out in October and will likely reach you in November by Thanksgiving at the latest. That will be over 5,400 Elizabeth Warren Action Figures flying out all over the world!

Persistent Pencils

A large part of our production delay came from our Persistent Pencils. Every product that we produce for the Kickstarter campaign needs to finish its production before we can even start the fulfillment process. However, once the different products finish their production, they all need to be shipped to our fulfillment center to be packaged for the final shipment. This can take weeks to happen. In this case, our Persistent Pencils took longer than expected to finish its production, but they are done and we're thrilled by the way they came out. Check them out below!

 

 

  

Temporary Tattoos

In other news, we're super excited to update you on the "Nevertheless, She Persisted" Temporary Tattoo Pack! We collaborated with one of our favorite companies, who just happen to be fellow Brooklynites: Tattly! Founded by Tina Ross Eisenberg, aka swissmiss, Tattly is a women-led, Brooklyn-based company that makes the best temporary tattoos. Tattly produced our custom designs using their non-toxic, vegetable-based ink to their high standard of quality. We're excited to see you all wearing these tattoos soon!

      Is anyone surprised? "Shipped in Oct -- arrival by Thanksgiving?" These are overseas scammers. they have no intention of fulfilling this "project."

      Hi, guys! I'm persisting! (That was a joke.) BUT I am wondering what's up with the shipment. Can you comment soon? Thank you!

      Mine was also a bday present for a loved one. Come on, I appreciate the good work you guys do but this is pretty bush league.

      I agree with Mark Wells, how about another update? My Elizabeth Warren action figure was a birthday gift for someone's birthday back in August. This delay is becoming a bit much now.

      It is Oct. 26th and I do not know what is happening. I did sign up for Elizabeth Warren AND older Barack Obama. I also did survey, so now just hoping to get delivery.
      Good to know I am not the only one.

      ��. Thanksgiving seems so far away. If we didn’t have pencils on our order, is there still a delay to November?

    11. john robert schoen on

      So before Thanksgiving? That's the end of November. Two months late. And, the time to let us know this, it's not in October, it's in September, when we were promised delivery. Very disappointed. Mostly in how this was handled. Do better, Elizabeth would.

      Pencils could have been shipped later. “By thanksgiving” is a LOT different than September. Not so cool.

      If the only hold up are the pencils that I don't even want ( on any of the other extras), just keep mine and send the figures. I was going to throw the pencils and tatoos in the trash anyway.

      I'm so disappointed to learn that the Elizabeth Warren figure won't be shipping until October. I feel a bit mislead about the timeline.
