First Fulfillment Shipping Deadline
A quick update on the pilot run fulfillment timelines.
There was an issue with the UV ink not sticking to the aluminum so we've had to trouble shoot the process. We found that a primer needed to be applied first and then the UV ink will bond to the metal. The primer has been ordered and we are scheduled to print this Wednesday. If all goes well we should have the first 125 discs UV printed and ready to ship by this weekend.
As for the production run...
We should have specific dates as to the rest of the production run by the end of the week or early next week, as soon as our manufacturer has visited the plant and addressed the few small issues we found in the pilot run. We have made the request to run the green and black discs at the beginning of the production run instead of at the end. Our manufacturer is looking into the logistics to see if they can accommodate our request. If they can make this happen it will be good news for higher tier backers as they could be part of the second round of fulfillment.
We will send you images from the UV printing session Wednesday and alert you all when we begin to ship and also when we hear from our manufacturer about the green and black discs and the full production timeline.
Meanwhile, the packaging is prepped and waiting on standby. Microfiber bags, two landing pad carriers with two sets of landing pads, and extra perforated paper for you all to test the out the cropping app.
