Jason Scott, speaking for the board.
Schuyler has signed off on the picks. We are now moving into production.
Again, we are going to do a smaller run than "all of them" and send out that initial batch to make sure the receivers find no major issues with the picks that slipped past quality control. This smaller order will go out to the etcher immediately, and a comment will be left on this update with the shipper's estimate of the delivery. After the initial delivery of the sheets of metal, Schuyler has to assemble the picks himself, which will take a small amount of time but we'll be working on ways to speed up the process and maintain quality after these pick sets go out.
As per the agreement with the board, Schuyler has transferred $1500 earned at his job to a separate non-accessible-to-him account, to be spent towards the metal etching. He pledges to continue to transfer funds as he can to pay for this production.
My UPS store tells me that 12 boxes bounced in the last few weeks, and I'm having them mailed to me for tomorrow, when I'll find out if people updated their addresses, or if I have to contact them. Similarly, I have a set of requests for address changes and will be sending out another set of boxes to these change requests, as we're down to a small number.
More updates soon.
