update: cards, production and possible plastics issues

Hello Backers!

here's an update on 3 things:

Cards

I'm done packing and stamping all the cards! I already shipped almost half of them and will finish shipping them all this week. I hope some of you are stamps collectors! (see picts below)

Polished Metal Production

as mentioned in the previous update, Shapeways has recently changed their minimum requirements for details when 3D printing in polished metals. so I had to deepen the orbits and order new prototypes to make sure they were fine. and they are! so, I'm starting the production again when I left off: polished metals.

Plastic Mementos

when ordering the new prototypes, I got all the plastic variations and got 2 with a ton of dust in the orbits and holes, making the Mementos look like a flat disk really. this didn't happen when I got my prototypes the first time. but using a toothbrush and needle, it's easy to remove the dust and clear the orbits and planets.

a few backers said they were disappointed by their plastic Mementos but without explaining why or sharing pictures. now, I'm thinking that might have happened to them. so, if it happened to you, try to clean them or send me some pictures at support@govy.fr and I'll see if Shapeways agrees to send a replacement even though it's been a while since the plastic Mementos shipped.

the pink Memento got tons of dust. the orange one as well, but I cleaned it with a toothbrush and a cleared the holes with a needle

polished metal Mementos can also be cleaned up, here I've enhanced the first orbit with a needle.

      I tried to clean my plastic disk but it isn't looking great and I'd hate to break it. Kinda bummed.

      i got the frosted plastic one, and the orbits aren't visible, i would clean it up, but i am scared to break it. would i be able to get a replacement if it broke
