We managed to find a solution!
Yesterday we heard from our packaging supplier that the boxes will be delivered in 4 weeks (early September). We can't let the project be delayed because of some cardboard! We negotiated to keep the project on schedule but unfortunately this comes with a few compromises :(
The first 2000 backers will receive their Freedrums safely packaged without any printing. This really sucks because we worked with a local tattoo artist to design the packaging print.
Nothing says Freedrum more than a polar bear train surfing through the city and nature while jamming away. You can see more of Lotte's work here: https://www.instagram.com/lottetattoo/
Your first impression of the product means a lot to us and so we would like to apologise for this. The good news is that our material is 70% recycled and 100% recyclable. We are not using any plastic in our packaging to minimise waste.
Here are a couple of images of what the box will look like without the print.
Our sincere apologies again for this mess up :( If you have any questions or concerns over the next few weeks while we are in production, don't be shy to reach out! We are also planning weekly live streams starting soon so we can answer questions and show progress.
The wait is almost over!
Philip, Fredrik, Fred & August
