Important Shipping Update!

The Freewrite you selected has been selling better than we expected and is now on backorder 😲. Our factory can't keep up! We are in production of more Freewrites but they are not quite ready yet.

Don't miss out!! We are producing a limited quantity and they are quickly becoming reserved. This will likely be your only chance to get a Freewrite in 2017.

The new batch of Freewrites is expected to start shipping in July. Production updates will be announced in our community forum at
