Our friend Alex Traxler from Griffen Hollow Studio cut the NTH enclosures for our production run, and has offered his services to NTH users looking for custom acrylic or wooden cuts. For the month of September, he is offering the following discounted prices:
Acrylic enclosure – $75
Wood enclosure – $125
Alex is a fine craftsman and made us the white oak enclosure seen below. You can contact him here.
We shipped the NTH and NTH PCB Kickstarter rewards between July 23 and July 31. The t-shirt rewards were shipped on August 1.
There are still four unclaimed NTH PCB rewards. We can’t ship them because we have not received a backer survey or shipping address from the backer. If you purchased an NTH PCB but have not received a shipment notice from us, please contact us as soon as possible.
We thought you might be interested in seeing some images from our final testing, assembly, and packaging procedures. Please check out the photo spread below for a glimpse of the final production process.
NOTE #1: We still have not received international shipping funds from some backers. We cannot ship your reward to you without these funds. Please PayPal your payment to email@example.com to avoid shipping delays.
NOTE #2: We still have not received backer survey responses, including shipping addresses and phone numbers, from some people. We cannot ship your reward if we do not have this information. Please respond to your backer survey as soon as possible to avoid shipping delays.
Thanks again to everyone for your patience and for your support of the NTH!
