When will The Present ship?

The Present will ship as soon as it is possible. It may ship as early as December but it may also ship in January or February of 2022. Due to the global supply chain slow down, it is unwise for me, at this juncture, to provide exact shipping dates.

Outside of occasionally utilizing Kickstarter, The Present has yet to be marketed. The funds from your pre-order sale will be utilized immediately to hire additional staff to help the assembly process run smoothly. You should expect your card to be charged within a day or two of your pre-order. 

Please keep in mind that The Present LLC is operating by one person, me, the artist who makes these things. I have made 7,200 timepieces that I've shipped to forty different countries. I ask for your patience as your own ship date approaches.

In time,

Scott Thrift
