Update + A Few More Things

Posted by Phil Bosua (Creator)

Hi Everyone,

Its been a while since our last update so we have made this one a goody!

Shipping Times
We have had several emails in regard to shipping. We are VERY happy to announce that we have finalized our manufacturing partner so we will begin production very shortly...

At this point we are still aiming to ship our first run in late August but it may spill into early September. We will keep you updated if anything changes. The delay was due to our incredibly high amount of pre sales. This forced to find a new manufacturer and this process proved slower than anticipated. It is worth noting that although we are working flat out on getting Scanbox shipped as quickly as possible we ask for some patience as we don't want to sacrifice quality in any way!

Also for those of you who are not aware both versions of Scanbox come with all 6 color options of stickers included, so theres no need to stipulate a color choice :-) 

Our website is now live! So for anyone who missed out on pleading towards our Kickstarter project you are still able to get your hands on a Scanbox. Thank you all again for your support! -

We've updated our Facebook fan page! If you haven't done so already, please make sure you "Like" our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter!

Packaging Design
We just completed our packaging artwork!

This is the packaging we've designed for Scanbox. It's a very simple and elegant design that includes both instructions and serving suggestions to take great scans. We wanted to ship a uniquely designed product with equally simple and unique packaging.

Let us know what you think!

Thank you all again! We'll be in touch!

As always, feel free to share your thoughts about our updates and project!

      This has the potential to become one of my key travel tools. Can't wait to receive it.

      You guys do release the dotted line on top of the packaging is just to show you how to align your phone. iPhone4, 5 or 12 I'm sure it doesn't matter. If your phones camera can see thru the hole then the position or size of the phone is pretty much moot.

      No problems with the shipping delays. Like the packaging! Yes, simple and elegant. KISS!

      Hi Phil,
      A possible solution for new models of phones, for you to consider:
      For the next iPhone (or other models of smartphones) perhaps each kickstarter backers could get 1 free updated pdf template to either put on the top of the Scnabox/Scanbox+ or so they could help mark out the new positioning?

      For people who purchase later (and after the first year for kickstarter backers), perhaps this could be an additional paid option (example: $1 for an updated template for a specific model of phone).

      I like the whole look of this product and congratulations on such a well considered and elegant design. I am both an iphone and an ipad user and would really like to be able to use the ipad as well - have you looked at being able to use the ipad on scanbox or is it too large and/or too heavy to work with your product?
      Regards, Tony Sykes

      Thanks for the corrections!

      @Jos We are aiming to have initial orders shipped before Apple updates its iPhone and if the camera does change position we will simply update the packaging for future orders.

      One question
      It looks like Apple will announce a new larger smartphone in September
      How will do you address this in the packaging of the ScanBox especially for the correct positioning of this larger smartphone
      thank you

      Cool packaging! Now I just need a smartphone.... @Danielle - good catch! Now that I look again, step 1 needs a comma after YOU, before LIFT. Step 2, comma after DOWN. Step 5, that looks like a period after CLICK when it should be a comma.

      You know you forgot the apostrophe in "smartphone's," right? as in "... uses your smartphone's camera to take high quality scans. ..."

      Can I request to use FedEx or HDL to ship my scanbox? I am in the middle east (overseas) and I don't want to lose my scanbox with the regular mail shipping method.

      I can afford paying the extra shipping cost.

      I CAN NOT WAIT ! ! !

      First thing I'm doing is to glue two tiny steel pads inside the top left side and right side of the scanbox. I have some really cool little LED flashlights I bought at Harbor Freight for about $3.00 each. They have a magnet on the back and put out lots of light, so I'll get nice even lighting.

      Part of what I do is filing documents an d researching documents with the courts. This gives me the option of emailing a report from my phone before I leave the courthouse.

      THANK YOU!
