We will be sending the second survey within a week to the first several hundred Kickstarter backers (for final shipping costs), and then continue to send the second surveys in batches to the rest.
We have all components of the Origami ready to go - except for the seats. We are working to have them air freighted in by at least May 26.
We also needed to make some final adjustments to the hull mold after the first few came off the line, but everything is now looking very good to rapidly scale to major production.
And even though we created prototypes as close to the real thing as possible, we know that we might need to make some last-minute design changes.
We are confident that we can meet any challenges that may come up!
Once we have sent surveys to Kickstarter backers, we will then begin with our pre-order customers (those of you that ordered directly from our website).
Our shipping timeline on our website will continue to be updated so make sure you check it out if you have questions about your order.
A little background info on Kickstarter Backers and Pre-order Customers
Kickstarter is a crowdfunding platform that Origami Paddler used to get the support needed to bring Tim’s idea to life.
Kickstarter backers pledged money to the campaign with a Kickstarter account with the risk of the Origami Paddler never coming to fruition.
Luckily for us all, it has!
The Kickstarter campaign ended last September and we were so stoked to have broken the record for the most successful watercraft campaign EVER! When we say our Origami Paddler family is the best - we mean it!
Shortly after, we opened up pre-orders to everyone on the Origami Paddler website.
So if you ordered an Origami Paddler without a Kickstarter campaign (or you didn’t know what Kickstarter is) then your order puts you in the website pre-order group!
