Project Closing, but Manufacturing Planned

1 comment

Dear Kickstarter Supporters,

We want to thank everyone for all of your support during our Kickstarter Project, as well as your very kind comments and patience. Unfortunately we only have a few days left and unless a miracle happens we are not going to reach our goal. Our goal with the Kickstarter project was to launch the Bambu Hammock and make a video documentary so we could share the manufacturing process with everyone. Many people do not think about how or where their products come from and we wanted to show you while inviting you to participate in this process. It is much more than the product. It is the story behind the product and the opportunity to watch your very own Hammock being manufactured from start to finish.

Even before our Kickstarter Project we were planning to launch our Bambu Hammock, but felt the most exciting and unique way to do this was through offering attractive rewards through Kickstarter. As I have stated in previous updates, the demand for the Hammock has been enormous and we are moving forward with production and will be able to supply everyone. Our goal is to begin production in September and have inventory available to be shipped out sometime in December. Because creating a manufacturing video documentary was one of the most important reasons behind our Kickstarter project we are still going to be offering this and will post regular updates on our Facebook Page, Twitter and our Development Blog.

We are still unsure if we will be re-launching our Kickstarter project or launching the Hammock for purchase on our website, or both. Since we have had a tremendous amount of international requests we will also be shipping internationally while securing distribution partners in various key countries to help reduce the shipping costs. If you have not done so, please visit our website and sign up for our Kickstarter Newsletter to stay informed on the exact inventory arrival date.

Thank you again for your patience and we look forward to begin manufacturing.

 

Sincerely,

Corey Drew

Kickstarter Experience

Comment

The whole experience, not only Kickstarter has been very exciting and it's going to continue for years to come as we are in the midst of developing new products to expand our line. There's a long story behind all of this and we were hoping to tell it in the video documentary once it was funded. So exciting we're going to make one regardless of Kickstarter, and we'll post on our next manufacturing visit which is going to begin in the early part of September. While we’re doing this our new website is going to be in development and we’ll be posting written and video updates on our Development Blog. Our project served a few purposes, one was to receive feedback from the community on our Bambu Hammock, another was to create brand awareness, of course create the documentaries and last but not least, to pre-sell our products.

Make sure you sign up for Blog to stay updated!

Sincerely,

Corey

International Shipping Instructions

Comment

Since the launching of our Kickstarter Project we have been received a ton of international shipping cost requests. We decided the best and most affordable way to do this is to collect all of your requests and then group them by countries. Because we have already received so many international requests, we can begin building pallets of products to be shipped to your specific country which will greatly reduce the shipping costs to you. 

HOW TO PLEDGE

Step 1: Make you reward selection and pledge that amount

Step 2: Send me the city and country you want shipped to

We will provide the shipping cost to all international backers on August 1st. If the shipping cost is out of our budget then you will still have 5 days to back out of the project without being charged. We will also deduct $25 on our side to lower the cost even more.

How pledging before knowing the shipping costs helps both of us

By pledging before you have the shipping costs it will help build more momentum to our project which will result in more backers and more international shipping. The more the international shipping the better the shipping cost to you. (please see our last update for website statistics)

IT'S A WIN WIN AND NO RISK FOR YOU TO MAKE THE PLEDGE
