Ok, we finally have news to report! Watch Clink’s founder, Casey give the latest production update or read the update below.
***Below is a lightly edited transcript of the video.***
Hey Clinkers this is Casey, founder of The Clink Room and I wanted to give you a production update.
If you’ve stuck with us during this crazy time, you’re a legend and your patience will be rewarded! When your hat ships, the box will be full of limited edition swag and hand drawn artwork. On top of that, we’ll be randomly including $50 gift cards with some boxes and one lucky Clinker will receive a golden ticket that can be redeemed for an all-inclusive trip to Clink’s studios in San Diego. We’ll fly you and a guest out to California, put you up in a hotel, take you on a taco tour, and help you design the hat of your dreams.
By now you know that manufacturing and shipping is screwed up around the world so we won’t dwell on that. But we think it’s important to note that Clink isn’t the only brand with delayed custom New Eras. We’ve heard that some brands were being told that they would not be getting custom hats until 2023! Not next year, 2022. But 2023?!? Crazy.
But not Clink! We will begin shipping our first round of preorders early next year (check out the updated Production Tracker to find your preorder style) and we should have consistent shipments each month from there on out. We’ll also be expediting some of the oldest preorders by air freight to speed things up by a few weeks. I get that it’s crazy for it to take this long, but Clink should have some of the first custom fitteds shipping since the global production shutdown.
If you want to cancel your order, I get it. But in a few months I think you’ll regret it. The hats from canceled orders are already in the production pipeline and they’re getting shipped to our warehouse along with the preorders that people kept. Once those extra fitteds are here, we’re going to set up a password protected section of the Clink shop accessible only to Clinkers that have held onto their order. In that secret section, our diamond handed Clinkers will be able to purchase those extra hats and they will ship in a day or two. No waiting! Imagine that.
Additionally, due to rising production and shipping costs, on January 1st, 2022 Clink will increase its prices to $52 a hat. So if you’re a collector, get those preorders in now while they’re only $44.
If after hearing all this, you no long wish to wait it out, no problem. Email us email@example.com and we’ll fully refund you.
To all of you that are hanging in there with us, 2022 is going to kick ass! Y’all are early on this Clink revolution and we’ve got so many awesome plans for the future. Sometimes I can barely sleep I’m so excited to unveil it all. Thanks again, Clinkers! The entire team is grateful for your patience and support.
