One year anniversary!

Today is the one-year anniversary of our successful funding on Kickstarter. What a year it has been! We have sold product in 9 different countries, we have had articles written about us, we have been featured in many YouTube videos(as far away as Vietnam), we have come out with two new Veil styles since Kickstarter, we have launched our retail website, and we have done all of this with the support of the amazing Community built here through Kickstarter. To date, I am very proud to say that we have never had below a 5-star review. We have never had to issue a refund for quality or performance or for not meeting any type of expectations for our customers, by our products.
Guardian bee apparel is growing, and it is all because of you. The early supporters that took part in this Kickstarter and launched an idea into a company are the main ingredient to this success. So many of you have been constant cheerleaders and have continued support of this brand and we cannot thank you enough, you are our family!
It's always a challenge, but we are enjoying the growing pains(because who doesn't want to grow?). One of our biggest challenges is marketing, it is unbelievable how many beekeepers out there have still never heard of Guardian bee apparel. If you have the chance, share a post from our Facebook page or a YouTube review with your beekeeping friends. Mention Guardian bee apparel at bee club meetings, or even contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll see if I can find a way to help support your local be Club.
I used to say that there is nothing more valuable than Word of Mouth. This experience has changed my perspective. The two most valuable things to a business is a successful crowdfunding launch by a wonderful community and Word of Mouth LOL. So please share your thoughts and opinions, our Facebook post, or videos made involving our product in groups that you may belong to, with friends, and with Clubs.
We have more Innovative products in mind and cannot wait to make them available, in the meantime I am reaching out and asking you to support us again and help spread the word. Joining our Facebook page is a great place to start. Feel free to message me through our website anytime just to say hello, I remember and appreciate each and everyone of you.
Happy anniversary community!
We love you guys!

Received several shipments in the last few days and we finally have all sizes in stock. I recruited a friend and my wife to do the heavy lifting (hehe) and have packaged and shipped ALL orders! Everyone should have tracking numbers emailed to them, If you have not received one by tomorrow please contact me.
If you fall under the local pick up category I will be here from 9-6 on Saturday and Sunday this weekend and would love to see you! This weekend is the official start of local pick up. If this weekend does not work for you please feel free to contact me and we will figure out the best way to get your order in your hands.
I know this process has taken longer than expected, I will learn and do better!
You will never know how much you have changed my life by making the decision to support this start-up. I hope to have an open line of communication and a life long relationship with each and everyone of you. Anything I can do to help you now or in the future, please ask!
I have plans for several new products that I will be developing and releasing as business allows and I can not wait to show them to you. First up is a smaller version of the veil for those of you that are comfortable with the standard level of protection and prefer smaller size. I feel like this optional veil will complete the suit and jacket line up for now. I have prototypes in the works and hope to share these soon. After that, I will get aggressive about developing one of the newer products I have in store.
I cant wait to hear from everyone soon!
So many thanks,
