Nearing completion. Here's Luke's latest news.
Hi folks, another quick update and some info from Luke as he continues his trip, and an interesting update on the product itself. A quick excerpt from Luke below, with full details and some other recent posts over at http://scanboxtravel.wordpress.com.
Some thoughts from Luke on the product...
• Firstly the print quality is amazing – the colors are extremely sharp and vibrant far better than I had hoped.
• I haven’t mentioned this before but in the end I decided to go for a slightly higher grade of card (600gsm for those of you who know what that is) and it really shows. This extra thickness allowed us to insert the magnets completely in the card and not require small black stickers (like the prototype did). This resulted in the boxes being slightly heaver but they feel far more solid and durable.
• The first time you use your Scanbox the sides may seem to be bent, but they are not. You simply need to take a moment to fold the flaps back on themselves and then everything will go together perfectly. Please see attached photos if your unsure what I mean.
• Finally (and please don’t try this at home) but because of the laminated coating the boxes retain a small amount of water resistance (I found this out by accident when I knocked my cup of water over)… so thats handy
Production will wrap up over the weekend and final quality inspection will occur. Our distribution company is ready to pick up the boxed units and ship them directly to you.
I will have a huge list of tracking numbers for every backer so please be patient as I compile the list into a database that is useable / searchable.
And from us.
We'll keep you updated as more unfolds (no pun intended), and Luke finishes his big trip. Suffice to say we're rapt with his efforts thus far, and will be back with another post soon!
