We are so excited that we may need to acquire a fainting couch.
We have ordered a "short run" from the "Hopeful Factory" --- and it is on its way. So, hooray! There is some delay because of the Chinese New Year. (Since the materials are all being sourced from Asia, this impacts us.) So, boo.
We found out for sure just a few minutes ago that it would not be here this week, so we decided to go ahead and send the update now.
The contract negotiations continue at the breakneck pace of the Flash... from Zootopia. Yeah, we really feel the main character's pain. The bright side is, our lawyers assure us that the contract we have drafted is indeed quite rigorous.
Lastly, we have definitely secured (in a precautionary measure, should both of these other options somehow fail) multiple raw material suppliers. (Of course, if we come across better deals than the ones we have secured, we are open to discussion! So don't be shy if you happen to be such a supplier.)
We are looking forward to our next update having significantly more pictures and videos and a possible use of a fainting couch.
We are extremely thankful for your patience. We had no idea that this would take even half as long as it has when we started. But our collective patience is about to pay off, and we can hardly express how thankful we are. But we'll try anyway!
Thanks for reading, and thanks for backing us!
