Copper or Gold?
We are in the homestretch before shipment. We have our reservation with the post office, Friday, September 26th. They will be picking up about 1000 Runbells for shipment. Hopefully, the packages will arrive within about a week. (although the post office says it can take up to two weeks).
Copper or Gold?
We have not had a final sample of the copper Runbell until this past week. Here are some pictures of both for comparison:
Here is a short clip of the sound quality of each color Runbell for those who wanted to hear each one.
Want to Switch Colors?
If yes, then email me directly (email@example.com) with your shipping name, and desired color. Please use the subject [Runbell Color].
Let us know ASAP or by Sunday (9/21) evening at the latest.
The Runbell Tokyo Stamp
We had problems with our text engraving on the bell. We originally planned to stamp the text. The bells are stamped from a sheet of brass during production so we could add text at the same time. However, we moved to a laser engraving instead so that we could have more flexibility.
Due to the mirror-like finish of the bell, our laser engraver could not make the engraving as planned. We then moved to a new engraver who is now sending us samples this week (which is quite late). So we have decided to cancel the "Runbell Tokyo" and only engrave the exclusive Kickstarter bells.
We hope you understand and believe you will appreciate the other improvements we have made to the design.
Thank you again
We are really enjoying seeing our design becoming a reality. Thank you again for making all of this possible.
Kevin, Tomoko, and the Runbell team
