Back in May on our Indiegogo, we said "Estimated August 2018" shipping, and we've been working our tails off to execute on that timeline. On July 23, we wrote an update estimating another 6-8 weeks for delivery of most preorders.
As of today (9/7), we're thrilled to report that we're on pace to ship out our first ~1,000 units by end of next week, and all Indiegogo backers should receive their sheets, duvet covers, and pillowcases by end of September. (Comforters, added later in the Indiegogo campaign, are on pace for late October or November shipping.) We'll ship everything according to order number, and you'll receive an email with tracking information when your shipment goes out.
We appreciate everyone's continued excitement, patience, and support the last few months!
Back in May, we really thought we could deliver by Aug. 31, but we spent more time than anticipated making sure everything was absolutely perfect for you. We're obsessed with the outcome:
White, Navy, Gray, Purple, Blue. The gray is grayer in real life, and the blue pops.
Side note – we've actually completely sold out of all available units for September and October shipping, which is a little hard to believe. New preorders received on SheetsGiggles.com in September and October will ship in November – just in time for the holidays! (Hint hint.)
Ignore the marble set, which is a totally normal thing to own.
That pristine white box totally won't get beat up in the mail. (It probably will. Don't blame us, blame the government.)
Before we ship out our boxes to their forever homes, we've been taking them on a tour of Denver. Here they are at Union Station enjoying a nice local brew:
No, you're weird.
We cannot WAIT to get your feedback, first impressions, and reactions as you open your boxes (5 stars or bust). We've already hand-delivered our first few units to early backers here in Denver, and we've been getting rave reviews.
We want to personally thank every one of you who helped bring S&G to life. You made us the #1 Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign ever for bed sheets, you already made a difference in the world (thousands of trees planted on behalf of your orders!), you've provided us with a lot of laughs and good jokes (keep them coming), and you've played along with all of our inanity.
As always, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any changes to your shipping address, if you have questions for us, or if you just want to say hey. We love hearing from you, and we love that we've gotten to know so many of you personally.
Thanks again for coming on this journey with us – we think this is the start of something really special.
