Invoicing done.

Thank you everyone for joining the raffle! I wish I could have invoiced everyone :(

Some raffle winners are reporting that their invoices ended up in "Spam" or "Promotions" folders. Be mindful of this when you check your emails.

A couple notes:

Group Buy spots will not be transferrable. Reply to the invoice email if you need to cancel the Group Buy order.
Address changes can be made once the units are ready to ship.
Shipping estimate is June-August 2021. I'll be updating this thread, Instagram, and Discord whenever there are news and updates. Please be aware that the COVID-19 pandemic is likely to add some delays to the Group Buy and I will do my very best to keep everyone updated.

Thanks everyone!  :thumb:

05/04/2021:

PCB:
Mechlovin' received the initial batch of PCBs and they didn't pass QC. The black surface is splotchy so we requested a new batch to be made.
We do not anticipate this new PCB order to affect our shipping timeline.

Case:
Cases are being anodized.

Bags:
The bags are being manufactured this month.
