Our Backers Rock. Plain & Simple.

Posted by chadwick parker & joe huang (Creator)

Hi Backers,
You guys are awesome and we thought someone should tell you today! Thanks for the amazing support and for taking this project beyond our wildest dreams. Please read this important update all the way through. There is some good stuff in here. :)

1. Before Funding Ends
Just a quick reminder, if you'd like to upgrade the back plug so you can put the cap on the back of your pen, go ahead and add $3 for each pen BEFORE the funding time ends. (See update #3 for photos & demo video)

Also, please make sure you credit card attached to your Amazon account is up to date/valid so it processes seamlessly and we can get you your rewards.

2. Survey Coming Soon
We will collect everyone's addresses & reward configurations/details a few days after the project ends.Please respond to the survey when you get it so we can organize how many pens need to go to each country around the world. Thanks.

3. Already Moving Forward
We wanted to let everyone know we are serious about getting the rewards out to everyone on-time and have fronted the money to get production started and everything is going well.  The phx-pens and upgrade plugs are STILL ON SCHEDULE and will ship together as expected beginning at the end of May. (despite the huge number of backers we didn't expect to have.) We will let you know more and post some photos of the new pens asap.

4. Do You Like Music?
One of our friends has a life-long passion for making music. He has a project on kickstarter that has some super cool rewards. Please go over and show our friend Jeff Waters how awesome the kickstarter community is and be a part of his dream of making a record become a reality. Here's the link:

5. Stylus Development Update
Because of the overwhelming requests to make a stylus tip work with the phx-pens, we have been working on a sample but we are not quite happy with it and it will take some more time to develop. Some small things need to be tweaked and then we will let you know when we are confident it will work well. To be continued in a future update. :)

Thanks again and we can't wait to get the phx-pens and rewards out to everyone! Have a great day.

-Chadwick & Joe

      The upgraded end cap won me over.

    4. chadwick parker & joe huang 27-time creator on

      @ Matthew

      Yes,You will still get to keep the original "flat" back plug when you upgrade so you will end up with two back plugs. The original plug and the new threaded plug.

      Does the upgrade include the orignal back cap too, just in case we want to use it that way?

      A stylus that screws onto the new threaded end cap would be awesome. That means you can have a stylus one end and a pen on the other, Duel wielding!

      Love the stylus idea, my only fear is losing the pen and stylus as I have done many times... can you figure out a way to prevent pen loss ;)

      Thanks for the great project guys!

      iP would be great. Be great for people whose hands are too shaky to hit those little buttons!

      Of course, there IS the question of what type of stylus tip... Nylon for resistive screens or capacitive for modern screens. My stuff is no longer resistive as I've gone iPad, iPhone and android.

      The stylus tip would be awesome. I currently carry a stylus and pen both in my Scott eVest.

      Hi Jason,
      Good idea, we'll keep that in mind for sure. Thanks.

      Hi Guys,

      I would recommend that if the stylus tip works out, that you start a new Kickstarter project for it. that way more people can enjoy the Phx pen, end cap + stylus tip

      Hi Arnold,
      If it works out, we will set up a paypal payment option and figure out the best way to manage everything. Right now it's the best we can do, thanks for your strong support.

      I'm just concern IF the stylus tip finally work out great AFTER the funding end, it will be quiet difficult to manage the extra cost to pay for backer who want to get the stylus tip extra. Just like the additional $3 for the back-cap.

      Hi Zee,
      Visit the project page and click “Manage Your Pledge.” Enter a new total amount (add $3 per pen) in the pledge amount box.

      ($20 for 1 phx-pen + 1 Hi-Tec-C pen) + 1 Upgrade plug ($3 per pen) = $23 Total

      The TOTAL dollar amount you enter will be the total amount collected if the project is successfully funded. That's it!

      To add the $3, do I pledge $2 and select donate $1 ?
