I would love to hear some numbers on how many portfolios (and refills) were ordered in the first 24hours or something like that Joe... Hell, i really wish I ordered more than 2 refills on my first order, i wish i would have done 3 or 4...

So when are you announcing BN flat files?

Portfolios are just a stepping stone to the true downward spiral of this affliction....

Won't give exact numbers but its definitely far exceeded what we imagined.

You'll always have time to refill. No rush. We are actually going to honor the sale price for anyone who purchases by Sunday. So once we start shipping, if you wanted to add more on, we can. It will be in the email.

18 x 24s up next then we will figure out the rest. Just want to get a bulk of the 24 x 36 inch ones out before we start taking orders for any other portfolios/sleeves :wink:

Bottleneck fun fact #112 is that we actually were a few steps into starting something with flat files a year ago. Figured it out and everything. Would have been higher end ones though but fell through due to space.

Just always challenging ourselves. I mean we laugh here about Mecka, UTBNYC and Pinpinz sometimes but to be honest we learned a lot from all of those side projects and just took it to Bottleneck and other things we are working on.

Yeah- might've missed it, but don't remember seeing anything about first batch being sold out when I purchased. Thought I'd be safe ordering in the first 15 mins.

Same here- thought I was quick enough on the draw by ordering as soon as I got the email. From the photos though it looks like they'll be worth the wait!

Missed out on the portfolio's for now. Definitely gonna pick one up later on though and am glad they'll continue to offer them.

On another note, anyone going after Cuphead today?
