We Did it!

Portland Press Supporters,

We did it! The Bucket team met our $50,000 goal with only a few hours left in the campaign, and the only reason we did it was because of you. We are truly indebted to all of you. Literally, we owe you a lot of french presses and wool cozies. Now it’s our job to work with our suppliers and manufacturers to get this product out the door and into our customer’s hands. We’ll be keeping you updated along the way with some of the details of the process. Our goal is to start shipping as soon as possible, so we’ll keep you updated on that as well.

If you weren’t able to contribute to the campaign, but you still want to purchase a Portland Press, they’re available for pre sale on the Crowd Supply website. They’re currently still available for the reduced resale price, but we’ll be changing that soon, so buy now if you want a smokin’ deal. Also, we’re not sure when the pre sale items will be available for shipment, but it won’t be any later than March 2014. There’s a chance we can get them to you sooner, but it’s too soon to tell, as we need to meet our Christmas 2013 commitments first.

Stay tuned for more products from Bucket: once our prototyping is finished and the manufacturing lines are rolling, we’re going to be running with the design of our next project, which is still in the brainstorming stage. We have some great suppliers and manufacturers, and there are a lot of directions we could go.

Finally: Thank you. Thank you for helping Bucket make our small dream of a locally manufactured and sustainably made product a reality, and for taking a chance on our young company. Every purchase and every customer is important to us, and we couldn’t be happier that so many of you decided to support our dream.

Bryan & Rob
