Risks and challenges

Risks & Challenges:

This project has been in preparation for a long time. As we have partnered with great manufacturers in Dongguan, China, we are ready to begin the production run as soon as the project is funded. Do note that this is the first time we handle such a large quantity through an international channel. Although there could be unexpected factors that result in a delay, we already signed agreements with manufacturers, suppliers and shipping handlers, and will do our best to ensure the Vince Durden backpacks get into your hands as soon as possible.

The main future challenge we are facing is International Shipping. International shipping is normally expensive and slow. In addition, the amount of time customs and border clearance take is unpredictable. To be prepared, we will start shipping some of the rewards over as soon as the campaign is funded; by the time the campaign ends, we will have sufficient experience dealing with international shipping.
