Dear backers, we are (still) alive.
I’ve got bad news - our 15 day delay changed into a 25 day delay.
All Kickstarter kits will be shipped by 25th June.
I deeply apologize for this.
I am fully responsible for the delay because I didn’t anticipate the possibility of Nokia 5110 LCD screen supply.
You see, those screens are recycled from old Nokia phones and there is literally only one factory in China doing that and they can’t supply high quantities in short time periods. In other words, we were waiting for the screens to be manufactured for longer than expected because no reseller had sufficient quantities in stock (neither did all resellers we contacted combined had sufficient quantities).
I hope you guys know that Kickstarter campaigns aren’t preorders and we are really grateful for giving us an opportunity to start a company and turn our hobbies into jobs.
After we ship the kits, you will receive a tracking number.
Packages will be sent via standard track post.
Estimated delivery times are:
2-3 days for Croatia
5-7 days for Europe
7-12 days for the rest of the world
All packages will be marked as gifts so that you don’t have customs related problems.
If you don’t like the news, can’t wait that long or just think I’m talking bull*hit and spending your money on alcohol and hookers, please send me a private message and I will give you a refund.
Thank you for your understanding
imaginary we’re sorry high-five
