      Hello Amanda,
      We posted extra cards and labels on the store a few days ago...just wanted to respond to your comment personally since you were the motivating factor in us getting those up there asap.
      Thanks for the request!

      I really don't want to be a downer but I'm a little disappointed in the shipping time. It appears the packages shipped before Christmas were sent with priority mail which is 2-3 days across the country. I have to wait over a week for it to get to PA because it was sent FedEx SmartPost. I wish the original shipment was sent based on how fast you responded to the survey because it's frustrating that the east coast was skipped to begin with, and now it's sent with such a slow method. The excitement is dwindling. I realize it's unrealistic to send them in the order received based on the volume you're dealing with, but I can still be frustrated by it. With services like priority mail it's just silly to have to wait so long. I would have happily paid more money for faster shipping.

      Will you guys eventually be selling extra pages of the blank plastic templates on your site? I only see the extra spindles and motors for accessories and would like to have more flips than the two I've made so far. Any info would be great! :)

      Hey Kevin and JJ,
      We've received several responses like yours about the Facebook poll - so you're not alone! We want everyone to know that you can cast a vote for the Dr. Steampunk name plates on our website too.
      You'll find all four logos on the homepage (underneath the header content in the news scroll). Or go directly here to make comments
      Thanks for the feedback - and we'll try to make sure we mirror content on our site as well as the social networks.

      Hey everyone,
      Everyday Steve has been visiting the shipping center to see how many FlipBooKits are being prepped and shipped out. He reported that today (Jan. 8) all the 3 and 5 packs were picked up for delivery. And motos are heading out next. We're getting these to you as fast as we can...thanks for your patience everyone! We'll keep you posted on the next shipping update.

      I am one of the folks who liked the flipbook concept so much I committed to the Fab-Five special pack (wife is a teacher).
      Have not seen a ship notification as yet. I am also one of the few who does not have a facebook account (linked-In is my preference) So, how am I to get fullfilment? Thanks

      Lots of 404 errors on your website. I tried looking around, but couldn't get far.

      Also frustrated by the poll requiring a Facebook account. Maybe people don't want to be on Facebook!

      Shame that the poll requires a Facebook account.
