Hello Backers!

Just wanted to quickly say THANK YOU for backing Mark Three on Kickstarter. We can’t wait to get production rolling on this.

For now there is not much for you to do other than sit back and enjoy the journey. We won’t be sending out the Backerkit surveys to collect your shipping address, color selections, and add-ons until we get a little closer to shipping.

We like to send out project updates roughly once a month, so you can expect that cadence moving forward. If you want to follow along with everything going on at Studio Neat, we recommend following us on Instagram or subscribing to our Gazette.

That’s it for now. Until next time!

Tom & Dan

Wahoo!

Hello lovely backers,

As of this morning we are fully funded! Mark Three is a go. We are excited to bring this mechanical pencil into existence.

We still have 29 days left in this campaign, so please, spread the word to anyone who may be interested in getting in early at a cheaper price, and helping support the first production run.

We also just added a Mark One + Mark Three tier, since they go so well together. Both the pen and pencil are discounted in this tier, so if you’d like to change to that, you can edit your pledge to do so! They will ship together once the Mark Three is manufactured.

Many folks in the comments have been asking about an add-on for a 0.5mm lead advancer. So we are looking in to that! If we do that add-on it will be after the campaign ends when we send the Backerkit surveys, so no action is needed on your part at the moment.

Thanks so much for your support, we are so excited to be bringing another writing instrument into our lineup.

Until next time,

Tom & Dan
