Hello to All the Beautiful People of our Big Jollylook Community!

Thank you all so much for the massive support we received.

Thank you for making our project a reality!

Our progress:

For the past three weeks, we have been preparing everything for mass production, and we are super excited to share our progress with you.

We ordered the molds for the SQUARE development unit as soon as this campaign was funded, and today they are ready in China:

The sample parts from these molds are on the way to us, and we expect to receive them at the beginning of July.

We have also received and tested the samples of the rollers for the developing unit, they are the right size and quality, and we have placed the order with the manufacturer.

As well as the SQUARE Fresnel lens viewfinder

Once we confirm all the parts orders, it will take about two weeks for them to be manufactured and then about another ten days to be sent to us. The current plan is to have all the parts at our small factory by the end of July. During July, we will be cutting and packing the wooden parts. If all goes according to our plan, then we will start packing all the rewards in August and should be ready to ship on time in September.

We will keep you updated on all the progress with updates every 2-3 weeks during this process.

Next steps?

A few things need to happen before we can kick off production and fulfillment.

Here's a quick rundown:

  • First, Kickstarter needs to transfer the funds, so we have the money to make the rewards, which should happen in the next seven days.
  • Second, we must find out what reward you have chosen: The Stained Brown version or the Natural plywood version (that can easily be colored with markers or paint).
  • Third, we have to find out where we need to ship the pledges. 

We will be sending our BackerKit survey out to collect this information during the following week. Our ability to make your order depends on receiving this information.

In the BackerKit survey, you will also have the opportunity to add film and add-ons, including all the stretch goals, at a discounted price. 

Again, thanks for all your support.

We can't wait to send you your genuinely unique SQUARE kits!

Thanks once again for your continuing support. Without you, this project would not be possible, and because of you, it will succeed.

Stay Jolly!

Until next time,

The Jollylook Team.
