    Sleeping is what gets me into trouble. :) Actually I plan on going to bed at 8pm no matter what happens.

    I gotta run, In my messages I got two back to back on the same topic a couple of hours ago. I better see what is going on.

    sorry if i've missed it, but was it decided on what colour the next run would be?

    any reports on how durability is from the first run of orange cerakote glow fobs?

    Sorry for the late reply, didn't see your question. We will be sending a new batch to Jon to add to his store. In addition to the orange and black Cerakote, we are also sending a tan version as well as OD Green and burnt bronze. Those will all be aluminum base material. That is in addition to the current stainless steel and hard anodized aluminum.

    Have you thought about copper or brass and making them look "aged" for the steampunk crowd? :)

    I would love to try that, but I don't think there is enough people who would want it. We would have to do an entirely new run of a new material ($). The good thing about Cerakote is that we can do small batches of the same base material so it is very cost effective.

    Jon, sent another email to you. I looked through my spam folder in case I missed your reply.

    Order # ORD201112066 from 12/6. I placed the order number in the subject line.

    Thank you.

    Hey all. Jon got back to me and confirmed.....USPS might have lost, dunno.

    Good guy that made it right and threw in a tritium kit !!

    Will be ordering again as it's not that there was an issue, it's the service recovery that makes a company.
