Hi Backers! People around the world are continuing to get their packages - thanks for all of the positive feedback! Sorry for the delay in updates - got caught up in a few personal things + we had to work out a few issues - but thankfully we now have all pens in our possession after one last (unsurprising, unfortunately - image below) quality issue that had to be worked out. So after a final(!) round of QC and assembly, every remaining backer's pledge will be going out early in Jan.
We've had a few people with quality issues related to their pens, so the replacement ones will be going out ASAP as well.
International backers - we had a number of packages returned due to changes in US customs forms between the time we got the forms and the time we dropped off the packages at the post office. That has now been sorted and they are going out again.
We've got about 250 packages to go (now that we have all the pens in they can be assembled and shipped!).
I'll post another update when the final pen has been shipped, but in the mean time feel free to get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Thanks for the continued patience, sorry - yet again - for the delays, but the end is in sight!
