Kickstarter Update #8: Reward shipment status

September 19, 2016

Dear Backers,

We hope you enjoyed the end of your summer. We want to provide a brief status update on award shipment. Our partners in New York have received all of the woven fabric and are in the process of assembling the ties. All patterns, with the exception of the printed pattern (i.e. the periodic table of elements), should be assembled and shipped to us by the end of September or first week of October. We hope to start shipping to each of you as soon as possible after that. To be more specific, we hope to have most of the orders in the mail in second or third week of October. We realize this is a few weeks later than we had anticipated, and we are sorry for the delay, but we hope it doesn't pose any issues.  

The periodic table of elements is likely to be delayed about two or three weeks later than the other patterns due to production difficulties (as discussed in a previous update). If the delay is longer than about two weeks, we will likely split any orders that include the periodic table pattern AND other patterns that are ready into two separate shipments so that you receive some of your rewards as early as possible. We would then send the periodic table rewards as soon as possible when they are ready. If you have any questions about this, please don’t hesitate to send us a message via Kickstarter or email us at  

Thanks, everyone! We're looking forward to shipping soon!
