Close to shipping

Hi backers, we have some good news and a first ship date. 

Our plan is to do our first round of assembly and packaging next Friday 19th and ship the first units on Sat the 20th April. 

This is not a 100% guarantee, provided no unforeseen serious problems it should happen. 

The progress so far is about 500 units machined, 250 have been sandblasted and are on the way to the anodizer. These units will be assembled on Friday. 

Will bring you photos of the assembly a few days after that.

Thanks for the support, Obtainum team.

      @Max Hong Kong, they have an efficient and reliable mail system.

      @Diji yes we have noted your address change.

      Will the wallet's be shipping out of the UK? USA? or China?

      Early bird backer here, just wanted to check that you guys got my message about shipping address changes.

      This is awesome news, I need a new wallet as mine was stolen/lost at Disneyland this weekend...

      For making all the early birds wait almost a month, you should give them all the black ionized option free to thank them for their patience. ;) (jk but that would be nice haha)

      Peter, early birds will go first. We can't give exact numbers or colors yet, just need to wait till next week when we actually have them in hand.

      20 years Ron! Most don't last that long. Would be willing to trade that old guy in? We like to have some well worn wallets around. What's the brand?

    9. Creator Peter Van Bogaert on April 14, 2013

      Ok. That's good news! So if 250 units will ship on Friday, one can assume these are the early birds (200 wallets) that have priority on shipping (also black version)?

      Great to hear we are close to shipping. I am sure it will be worth the wait. My leather wallet is about twenty years old, so it will be interesting to make the changeover.

    11. Creator Jason Mullins on April 14, 2013

      Glad to hear! Your product is well worth the wait. Keep up the good work. My pocket is ready for the wallet and I think my current wallet might hold up to the arrival of the new.

      Good news! Looking forward to it!
