Last week our CEO Brett Walker moved our headquarters from Champaign, IL to Austin, TX. Now all of our ink manufacturing and pen filling will be done from our new facility in Austin. We are currently using the Austin office to fulfill the rest of our Kickstarter orders, too. Last week we shipped off about 500 Maker Kits to international backers and plan to have all kits shipped by Christmas! Our backers can be on the look out for tracking emails within the next few weeks. We are 96% complete for all kickstarter orders and we have around 400 total shipments left. As you can see below our (new) shipping office is packed with kits. The last step is to receive the workbooks, put them and the pens into the kit, and ship them off.
One of the beauties of conductive ink is that if you can think it, you can draw it. You're not limited to straight lines or simple connections like you would be using wires. In fact, you can turn your circuit into art! Click here to download a winter themed circuit that you can trace with Circuit Scribe! Here's a photo of our example:
Let us know what you think of our new website and blog! We plan to use this site to keep everyone up-to-date with fun projects, product updates, and news. If you don't already follow us on Twitter, you can also find us at @Electroninks! We love when people tweet at us and send us photos of their circuit creations. Check out this holiday-inspired creation!
Finally, we just want to thank you all sincerely for joining us in the experience of making our products a reality over the past year. It's been an amazing experience seeing Circuit Scribe transform from a prototype to a real product and hearing positive feedback from our customers and collaborators. We can't wait to see what 2015 brings!
