Kickstarter Update #10: Shipment update

November 16, 2016

Dear Backers,  

With the exception of a few individuals who selected print neckties (i.e. the periodic table of elements pattern…more on this in a second), we are happy to report that we have shipped all rewards! If you haven’t received your rewards and were not among those that ordered a periodic table necktie, please let us know at

For those who ordered the periodic table pattern, we are so sorry for the delay. Given the long wait, and to thank you for your patience and support, you’ll each be getting an additional reward in your shipment. We’ve been checking in almost daily with our manufacturer. They unexpectedly had to order a tailored lining to go with the specialized fabric, which delayed production. But, they assured us that sewing would be finalized this week and we should have the ties in the next few days. We’ll send your rewards as soon as we get them. Our best case scenario is you’ll have them before this week closes out, but the most likely scenario is that you’ll receive your rewards next week. Again, we are so sorry for the delay. 

Finally, a few of you have asked for business cards to hand out to friends, family, and colleagues that have inquired about your ties. We’ve ordered business cards and we should have them by tomorrow or Friday. We’ll send them out to you ASAP. Thank you for spreading the word! 

 Thanks again to all of you for your words of encouragement and support!
