 Hey bookies!
Shout out to Anonymous Flamingo #1542365 for being such a helpful friend to everybody! Thanks Flamingo. :)
(you studiously reading this update)

1. Please ensure your payment went through. 
We charged cards last week and 70+ payments failed. You were notified via email if your payment had issues. You were only charged for your pledge, it did not include shipping. 

2. Surveys!
Turns out that were hasty when we said we would send out surveys by today (Tuesday the 19th). We are sorry for the change! The survey will be sent out the following Tuesday the 26th.  As a reminder, please respond to the survey promptly and attentively as it confirms all kinds of important information about your pledge.  

A reminder that the survey will: 
·       Allow you to select your desired Travelbook(s)
·       Allow you to add additional items (Travelbooks, Bookwallets, Fancy Notecards, Fancy Pen, Extra Notebook/Pen, Sticker, etc.)
·       Confirm your address
·       Charge you for shipping 
3. Timeline/Shipping 
We just got the latest confirmation that production will take 2 months & shipping will take two months. If this estimate stays true, we will receive the goods here in Portland OR in late November. We will easily be able to ship all orders within 2 weeks. Just remember that international logistics are fragile, and that there could be complications that push the delivery into January. Just please mentally prepare for that because it is a possibility. 

In terms of shipping to you, particularly for international orders, selecting a courier is a balancing act. For example, there may be a slightly cheaper courier (yay) that takes up to 45 days to deliver (boo) … We are persisting in marrying quality, price, and time. Please note that but prices have gone up over the last two years. We are estimating that international shipping will cost from $16 - $20. Domestic shipping is looking like $11 - $13 via UPS. Please also note that estimate will be slightly higher if you ordered more than 3 Travelbooks.

4. Other Stuff

The pre order store will be live by Friday, so if you know of anyone that may have missed the project, they can still order a Travelbook and join the partayy.
