So glad to be able to share this. This sub has been so helpful, specifically with marketing/tech stuff, and it's just great to come full circle. After about a year of work, we spent the week packing up over 4000 Sleepout Curtains to send to our backers on Kickstarter (pic here from the end of day one – about 1300 curtains in!).

We originally created these for my partner Mark's insomnia because nothing else worked well and we didn't want to tape garbage bags to our windows. It's been about a year since we started, ~6 months since launching on Kickstarter, and we are so excited to see where Sleepout goes. For anyone curious, I've written some sort of longer posts (1, 2, 3, and 4) on the journey/story, and this talks about Mark's experience with insomnia in detail.

Even more exciting, as of today, we are in stock and shipping for the first time ever! Feels like the very beginning for us and we can't wait to see what's next.
