Update #16

First shipment Monday, 22nd April!

6 comments

Exciting news backers, the first Obtainium wallets are going out Monday 22nd April. 

We visited our supplier on Friday to oversee the final assembly and boxing. They look great in their boxes and we are happy with the results. 

Although we thought we could get them out Saturday it took a surprising amount of time to address, label and pack 125 wallets. You can see below how large a pile this is. So we missed the 1pm closing time of the post office. Now they will ship Monday. 

The packages are being sent by registered mail. These 125 units are from the early bird backer level. The remaining 75 early birds will be sent soon. This set includes Grey, Olive and Black colors. It does not include the JC signature model, Gold or orders with custom laser etching. These variations were not yet complete and will ship as soon as they are ready. 

As for the other pledge levels, they are being cut and anodized as fast as the machines can run. We visited the machine shop and they have 5 machines running simultaneously just to cut the wallets. We went into more detail with them about the various steps required. Its a long process taking 1.5hrs per wallet half, so 3 hrs total in machine time. We took some video of the CNC machines running and will upload a video later in the week once we edit the footage. 

Thanks again for the support. Obtainium team.

      Sweeeeeet!! I must've pledged for 6-7 wallets on kickstarter, but this is the one I'm looking forward to the most. So happy I'm in the early bird group! Woohoo!
