UPDATES

+ Storage bins will be restocked soon.
+ We are going to have stabilizers in stock soon.
+ GMK MoDo Light is still in stock! As well as deskpads!
+ As a reminder, in-stock groupbuy extras (Modern Dolch Light) are processed 1-10 business days after the purchase date due to the high influx of orders at once. If you see someone else has their order and you haven't gotten a shipping email yet, it doesn't mean there is something wrong with your order. Please refrain from submitting tickets regarding the status of your Modern Dolch Light order within this timeframe so we can keep as much focus as possible on getting the orders processed and headed your way.


COMPANY UPDATES

NEW FACILITY

+ If you haven't heard, we are in the process of designing a different kind of metal rectangle. A new building. We are bursting at the seams at our current location, so we are way overdue for more space to stretch out and makes things more efficient.  
+ We have purchased a 3 acre parcel of land and are preparing for construction of a custom-built 12,000~ sq/ft facility. 3 acres is more than we need at this moment, but it will allow us to expand with new facilities as we grow in the future without moving again. 
+ We have a meeting early next week to finalize the design of the building. We hope to have more information in a dedicated post soon.
Name Competition:*

+ We closed the form on Sunday night and will be taking a look at the names when we have the time in the next week or so. 


FUTURE PRODUCTS

BAUER LITE

DEVELOPMENT PHASE

+ We are finally moving into the tooling phase. We hope to have samples to show off in the coming month or two. 

Known Info
+ Injection-molded Polycarbonate
+ Bauer Lite PCB will be the same form factor as (and compatible with) Bauer 2
+ Bauer Lite plates will be the same as (and compatible with) Bauer 2
+ Bauer Lite top/bottom case is not the same as Bauer 2 metal versions (i.e. not compatible) because the injection molding process requires a different design for production
+ Bauer Lite mounting system will be the same style as the Bauer 2, with neoprene pads and taco bumpers
+ Will be consistently available and may launch it with an unlimited preorder
+ There will be a hotswap PCB

Unannounced Info
- Price
- Launch date
- Color options
- What it sounds like (only a 3D-printed version exists!)
- Anything else not mentioned above

Waitlist
+ We have opened up a list for anyone who is waiting for the release of this project, since we are growing closer. This list is separate from our normal newsletter and will provide updates specifically about Bauer Lite, as we get closer to the release. This will also help us make decision on how we will handle the launch, by knowing how many people are wanting a board.  

 


GROUPBUY UPDATES
