Customs Delays, but now on Its Way!

Well, we have some good news!  There are 2 pallets holding 25 boxes which make up the sum of your pledges.  They still require inspection and assembly, but they are now almost at our fingertips!  

We apologize for the delay; while the shipment had arrived last week in Oakland, CA, customs had flagged it for review and thus began the fun paperwork faxing/phone tag game.  After a few forms, and about a dozen calls, the shipment is slated to be back in transit today and on it's way to our HQ on southern California.  It could arrive as soon as tomorrow, but will likely be here this Thursday.  

We will begin the staging and quality analysis phases immediately following their arrival.  We will be applying what we've learned in the pilot runs to help make this process run as smoothly and efficiently as possible.  We must still meticulously assess each unit, assemble packaging and insert items to our Iconic Standards!  

We will attack fulfillment by pledge levels to keep things manageable.  We will start with the $80 tier (now that we have all three colored discs) then finish up the $25 tier and so on, until all tiers have been shipped.

More info and photos to come when shipment lands on our door steps.

Regards

Tony and Jeremiah

      A lot longer indeed. This product has proven to be much harder to make in mass production than originally expected, but we've triumphed over all the hurdles and we are very happy to be nearing the end. Still more work to do, but believe me when we tell you, we are so happy for our backers! You guys are the reason Iconic Disc exists! -Jeremiah

      Can't wait to put the flashback disc on my new retina, old school meets new.

      Awesome! Too bad I can't just pop by Oakland and pick mine up, but I've waited this long already. A little longer in exchange for quality is fine!

      Can't wait!

      Lewl... the road turned out to be a lot longer than originally anticipated, but I'm glad to see you guys on the cusp of delivering.
