They say all good things come to an end. Well, it’s almost time for our crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo to wrap up. Including today, we have just three days left to accept contributions before our Indiegogo campaign ends.
There are two ways in which our campaign could go within the next 60 or so hours. So, what happens after Friday, December 23 at 11:59pm? Here are our options:
Outcome A: Into Manufacturing
If, by the time our campaign closes on Friday night, we have received the full $60,000 of our crowdfunding goal, then we are going to be busy guys over Christmas. In all seriousness, this would be an incredible outcome for us, and for you, because it means that we’ll have generated the interest and the funds required to go into production immediately.
If Outcome A occurs, then all of our contributors will receive an emailed survey within one week, allowing us to make sure we have correct shipping addresses, and that those who have ordered a BLÜME can choose which finish they would like to receive. We will also stay in contact with everyone expecting a Perk, so that you’re all aware of when your items will be shipped.
Then, the fun happens! BLÜME is manufactured and by Q3 of 2017, yours arrives right at your doorstep. Get ready to introduce your cigars to better humidification!
Outcome B: Production Planning and Scheduling
If by Friday night we are still short of our crowdfunding goal, then everyone who has contributed will receive a refund directly from Indiegogo. But don’t worry! That doesn’t mean you’ll never be able to receive a BLÜME of your own… it just means that we’ll be pursuing other options to fund production. Once we’re ready, we’ll let you all know how to buy your very own BLÜME (which will be through a method other than Indiegogo).
If Outcome B is what materializes, contributors will receive post-campaign updates with our new production plans as they are finalized. Because Cigar Zen received such overwhelming support and encouragement, we’re completely committed to creating an improved cigar smoking experience for every stogie lover. We’re going to be working hard in order to get our supporters the product(s) they need and love!
