Hello Massdrop: My Franklin Christoph Pocket 40 arrived damaged. The threads on the section have a large crack. How can I get a replacement since I received a damaged item?

Thanks! I will follow up.
Hi Liz, I reached out via the transactions link you provided on Saturday, as well as via email, but have not heard back yet. What is the typical turnaround time for a response? It's now Tuesday. Thanks, Yulisa, @theinksampler
The majority of the group's Franklin-Christoph Pocket 40 - Massdrop Exclusive pens have shipped. Community member's whose order hasn't shipped are going to be contacted by support shortly.
Thanks again for the support guys! Drop by the discussion board and share your experience with the ink. The community would love to hear your thoughts.

I received a shipping notification for this drop on Friday (Oct 30th) with an invalid tracking number. Was this sent in error? Have any pens been shipped at all?
ManSally
That's when they packed it ... number tracks once it leaves the warehouse (typically next business day). Check it again, should be tracking along by now.

So it has! It left the warehouse last night. Thanks, oggypop.
The bulk shipment arrived late today due to some delays. Our warehouse managed to pack some orders but the carriers had already made the final pick up for the day. We expect the orders to go out between Monday and Tuesday. We will make sure to update the group once the complete order ships out.
Thanks for your patience and expect an update from us on 11/4 or sooner if something comes up.

Woot! So cool. No worries. Just checking in.
Great news group! The vendor has let us know that the group's order was picked up and is on its way to our warehouse now. Based on the tracking provided these are scheduled to come in 10/29. Our warehouse team has been forwarded tracking info and will be standing by, ready to get these packed up and turned around as soon as they come in.
Sometimes shipments get delayed en route, not to worry as we will keep the group posted throughout the process and notify you all if anything causes delay.
Thanks for your patience and expect an update from us on 10/30 or sooner if something comes up.

Did y'all get the pens today? What a... TREAT that would be!!! You see what I did there? Because Halloween... You know, trick or treat!? I'll show myself out now.
The vendor is currently working on preparing the order of the Franklin-Christoph Pocket 40. Based on current estimates they will be ready to ship the bulk order to our warehouse on 10/20. As soon as this happens we will make sure to update the group with an estimated date of arrival at our warehouse.
Thanks for your patience and expect an update from us on 10/21 or sooner if something comes up.

Any chance FC will be providing us with more production photos as this progresses? Loved seeing the first couple.
We are in contact with the vendor and awaiting updated shipment estimates from them. We have a call scheduled first thing tomorrow morning and should get a bit more visibility in regards to when we can expect these in our warehouse. We will update the group as soon as these are on the way.
Currently we expect that these will be in our warehouse inline with the expected ship date listed in the drop description page.
Thanks for your patience and expect an update from us on 10/2 or sooner if something comes up.
Thanks again for joining this drop! With your help we were able to make it successful for the community. We've just submitted the group's order with the vendor for the Franklin-Christoph Pocket 40 - Massdrop Exclusive and they are working hard to prepare it for shipment.
As soon as the group's order is ready at the vendor's location, they will send the bulk shipment to our warehouse in New Jersey where our warehouse team will break it up into individual orders and ship them directly to you! The current estimated ship date from our warehouse is 10/28.
Rest assured that we we will provide you all with updated information regarding the status of your order throughout the process. You can expect an update from us by the end of the day Pacific Time on 9/30.

Thanks to all of you for making this a reality.

Folks I just don't know what color to get. ;-;
Woohoo! Looks like we made it to the lowest price!
I initially committed at the lowest price, but came here to go ahead and join outright. But apparently I already have, and at the lowest price, even though we're still a bit short of 150? Little bit confused about what's happened but as long as I'm getting a pen I don't mind!
Looks like it's just 2 away from the 150 mark, which I committed to. I noticed that the header has changed so I'm wondering if you guys negotiated for the lower price even at only 148 units... Confused, but not complaining.
HeyMatthew
When I checked earlier today it showed we reached the 150 mark. Now it shows we are 1 shy of 150 and the 80+ committed users are now showing as purchasers?
11 to go😊
I keep getting internal error when I tried to buy....Hmmm. Maybe God thinks I have more than enough pens...
Sharing!
Well this is a real bummer.
:-( It doesn't look like it's going to get to the lowest price. (Liz_M - you said we were only 24 units away from lowest price. I'm seeing only 78 committed -- that leave 72 more still needed.

That clears a lot up, thanks.

Don't worry @dmerle and @agentmayhem,
This is so close to reaching its lowest drop point (only 12 away at the time of this post), that we're going to extend it though Wednesday to make sure everyone can get the lowest price on this custom project. Fulfillment times shouldn't be affected much, if at all.
To all who have joined: If you haven't already, please make sure to share this drop. We are just a dozen units away from making this happen!

Thanks to all who have joined this drop for a Massdrop exclusive Pocket 40! As of this post, we're only 24 units away from unlocking the lowest price. If you haven't already, please share this with your friends so that we can make this drop successful.
Those who are familiar with Franklin-Christoph already know that they pretty much never offer this kind of a discount on their awesome pens. This drop is special not only for the sweet price, but the fact that these are colors not available to anyone outside of Massdrop right now. Let's make it happen!
Thanks all. :)
Love the ice, just not a blue fan. Maybe next drop :)
This is a nice review of the model 40
The regular colors aren't being offered in this drop? I have been wanting the Smoke and Ice fro a long time. Figured that I would ask.
Quick update for those of you that joined the drop. In response to a number of requests for the pocket clip as an additional add-on in the discussion; we worked very quickly to provide that option for the group.
Unfortunately, when the option was added some members may have had the pocket clip added to their transaction page automatically. We went ahead and implemented a fix for this to ensure no was charged for the clip when they may not have wanted it.
Between now and September 14, please be sure to check your transaction page under your profile to ensure that you have the correct options selected.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience, and thank you for participating in this special Massdrop Exclusive Pocket 40 drop.

Ice body...
Ice body!! Faith restored, Massdrop! Thank you thank you!
I would love to see a picture of this pen, or one like it, with an ice body and with ink filled inside it eyedropper-style; so I can see the warpy-shimmery effect that people are praising.

There's a review of this model (not exactly this color, but same size and all) on the Pen Addict site. It really looks gorgeous with the ink inside. (I'm sure there's also a review of another ice FC pen there with more close-up shots that give a good idea of the inside texture and all, but I can't seem to find it right now.)

Everybody should probably check: The optional clip was added to my order automatically and I don't want a clip but the franklin-christoph leather pouch :)
Shalton
Yes. I was disappointed by this inclusion after I placed the order and discovered it by accident. I am not tech savvy and had to cancel the whole order and start again. I sincerely hope this was an oversight and not some kind of "sharp" practice.
IanB
Sorry about this error guys; it was definitely not intentional and we're looking into the cause.
In the meantime all, please make sure to check your transaction to select whether you want a clip added or not: https://www.massdrop.com/transactions
Man these are awesome. Unfortunately, I already have too many blue fountain pens.
