24 Hours To Go!
Last chance to get Elevation Docks! A few things --
Custom lasering: The email announcement didn't make it out to everybody yesterday because Kickstarter's servers were slammed. Here it is.
You do not have to sign up, decide you want it, or pay for it now - you just need to back the number of docks you would want done. In a month or so, we will give instructions for uploading your artwork to a web interface we are developing.
International Orders: Make sure you have added $20 to your pledge amount for shipping. You need to do this manually
Ordering multiple docks: If you want multiple docks - choose the “Back Multiple Rewards” level and manually enter the total of the docks you want. (I know, this is an awkward method...)
For example, if you wanted 2 Matte Black Dock+'s and a SunOrange Dock, you would enter $320 as the pledge amount. (85+85+150=320).
International orders need to add only one $20 fee for the whole order.
History is being written
This was the fastest start ever for a Kickstarter project, hitting our funding goal in 8 hours and $168k in 24 hours, more than double any previous project had ever hit. On Tuesday, this project became the most funded project on Kickstarter ever and yesterday it became the first to hit $1million. Then video game maker Double Fine launched Wednesday and it beat our newly minted funding record in less than a day and hit the $1m mark just hours after us! Amazing.
Kickstarter's recap is here.
People use the term disruption pretty loosely, but crowd-funding is doing it. Goodbye middlemen, sayonara to the massive traditional barriers to entry... Hello bootstrapped projects like this, made without compromise, and that would otherwise never see the light of day.
