A few glitches on the way!

The team is carrying out its operations pretty well. We have just finished processing our first order of 15 products and we have received 12 more now. We have also registered for the u-flea market in NTU to be help on the 9th and 10th of February and MAAD to be held on the 10th of February. Needless it is to say that 10th February is going to be taxing for all of us as we have to divide our already little manpower into two groups to attend both, the u-flea market and MAAD. And of course, the work that follows these two events will be enormous. But, it is a happy pain, we must say!
While, that is all the good news we have, we are facing a few glitches as well. Since, we have no developer in our team, we our facing a very difficult time designing the website on our own.  And since we have already shelled our a lot of money on raw materials, we cannot afford to outsource it either. However, Nathaniel and Monisha are doing their best and have promised that the website will be up and running by 21st January. On the other hand, Shweta is trying her best to source cardboard boxes at affordable prices (with our logo on it) from Singapore, China and India. We have mailed numerous packaging companies for quotations and are still awaiting them. We shall wait until 24th January, beyond which we will have to call up the companies to expedite the process. At the same time, the entire team is also struggling to find a solution to the hanging needs of our customers. Drawing inspiration from our US counterpart, the team had decided to provide two mounting screws to customers who demand that their product be suitable for hanging. However, feedback from customers shows that this solution is dissatisfying. Hence, Shweta is trying to hang the woodprints using 3M heavy duty tape. It can hold upto 2kg and can be easily gotten off the wall when required without causing any damage to the product or the wall. We shall wait a few more days before we settle for this option as we're currently testing for how long this tape can hold our biggest product!
Hopefully, we can settle these issues before attending our two big events!

Have a look at our first set of products, all geared up for delivery:
