October 25 Update
about 2 months ago – Thu, Oct 25, 2018 at 08:42:16 PM

We checked in with the printer, and due to some busyness, they are currently on track for completion on Oct 31. We're sorry that there is another delay! We'll keep following up with them, so to provide you all with updates. Our next scheduled update is November 8, and I'm optimistic that we'll have news then. We're eager to get this moving.

October 12 Update

Brief update, as we're waiting on production in China. Our printer said they had delays (due, among other things, to the Golden Week holidays). Their current estimate for completion of printing is October 20th. We'll keep following up with them, and share updates when we have them. We'll keep pressing forward!
