A big thing happened on Wednesday: The Shop at NockCo.com launched!
You probably know this by now, but I wanted to be sure to discuss it here becasue I wanted to say THANK YOU to everyone who has supported The Pen Addict all of these years. You guys and gals played a huge role in making this dream come alive and I wanted you to know how appreciative I am. It's pretty amazing honestly.
When Jeff and I got together last summer and laid the groundwork for Nock Co. we weren't sure how far we could take it, but we were convinced we had something. Phase One: The Kickstarter, went reasonably well despite several delays. We learned a lot about producing our cases, and we learned a lot about ourselves. We gathered all of that information, fine-tuned it, and had the nerve to think we could open a sustainable business selling pen cases of all things. I mean really, say that out loud. "I run a business that makes and sells pen cases."
It's pretty awesome, huh? It's a tick above "I write a blog and record a podcast about pens." :)
In all seriousness, I owe a debt of gratitude to all of you and a deep down thanks for your support and encouragement along the way. Jeff and I are completely stoked about how far we have made it and are even more excited about what we have planned for the future. We hope you join us for the ride!
In case you missed it, Jeff did a nice wrap-up post of Launch Day complete with a slideshow of some of the action in the shop (and a prime view of my posterior). Be sure to check it out.
