Full length video update

Hey guys,

TLDR; Production 7 days behind but we will still be shipping in December.  Over 2k free rings shipped to makers.  Pre-orders of 2016 rings available exclusively on the NFC Ring store!

Production update

Hey guys, we're 7 days behind on our production schedule due to the last batch of blanks arriving a week late.  We're doing QA inspection on the 30th of November so assuming everything passes we will begin shipping to the UK from the factory on the the 1st of December.  Assuming it takes 7 days in transit we can expect to see the rings on the 9th of December at the latest and we can begin packing and shipping right away.

We have put a lot of prep work into ensuring we're ready to ship as soon as rings land.  We will be able to process about 500 ring orders a day and have already put on extra staff and resources to ensure we don't have any delays at our end.  It's going to be tense waiting on the package to land from China but we're fully setup with automated custom fee handling and other things to ensure everything goes smoothly.  The risk of course is customs decide to do additional inspections, that would be a huge bummer so fingers crossed....

Remember that extortionate £9 shipping rate?  Well that amount means we can ship with speedy shipping options greatly including the likelihood you will have your rings for Christmas!  Europe and the US usually takes about 5-10 days so assuming we begin shipping on the 11th rings should begin landing in the UK on the 13th and oversees on the 16th.

Hacker Rings

A few updates ago we announced we were giving hacker spaces access to free QA fail rings and the uptake was mind blowing.  We shipped over 2000 QA fail rings and we're now pretty much sold out!  Thanks for this guys, hopefully our maker friends will begin creating even more awesome stuff like the Keyduino (which is currently on Kickstarter).

Pre-Orders are now live

If you have friends who missed out on the Kickstarter and wanted to pre-order to get their ring ASAP they can do this on the NFC Ring store..
