And the fun begins.
We sent the first test packages out yesterday to make sure our systems were working properly, we are working out the snags this morning, and will be shipping more out this afternoon!
So here are some details for you.
We will be shipping as much as we can muster everyday we can until all of the rewards are shipped.
We anticipate that this process will take us until sometime in May, 2013 to complete. There are over 18,000 backers at this point, and that’s a lot of orders to send out!
There will be a down time during our consumer appreciation show, Reaper Con. We will not be shipping any Kickstarter rewards during the duration of the show and for the two days before and after that week. So, from April 11th until April 23th there will be no activity.
Once the last rewards have shipped we will wait about a week and then we will begin shipping to distribution and making the new Bones available for general purchase for anyone that wants more or missed out entirely. So, no need to worry, you should get your backer rewards before they hit the retail shelves.
A couple of the biggest questions are. “What order are we shipping in and when will mine ship?”
We are shipping the orders with single items first (such as one Vampire Level) and working up to the most complicated orders last. This will allow us to build the order picking line over time and reduce the errors. Then, within that we are shipping in the order that you filled out the Reaper Pledge Manager, so first in, first out.
As far as when will your specific reward goes, we really can’t answer that question as there are a lot of variables to consider, but know it will be between today and sometime in May. Shy of some sort of error on the internet, you will get an email when your package(s) are processed and are being picked up by the carrier service. In most cases this will be UPS. If you are not domestic (US or Canada) it should be US postal service.
Lastly, if you need to change your address, do it now! Go back to the Reaper Pledge Manager and update your address there!

We all hope that you really enjoy your Reaper Bones when they arrive!
