Thanks for your response, Sara. And also thanks for contacting me directly and helping out with this.
@Rory, Im shocked and sorry to hear that. We I talked to the USPS on my end they said that there wouldnt be a considerable, if any, charge for customs. Argh! Thanks for informing us, as well as other backers.
To everyone else, please keep us posted on HEX6AGONs arrival, and any potential shipping concerns.
It turns out that the customs charge was in fact for HEX6AGON. They've gone and charged me VAT and the mail service has charged a fee as well. I know that this is out of your control but it's a pity it has added an extra $30 to the cost.
Its worth me warning other UK buyers about this.
To top this all the cardboard tube arrived missing the plastic stopper on the one side and the contents were sticking out. This is all quite frustrating from the postal service.
I'm sure when my tiles are up and the light is shining through them it wall all be ok.
I've paid it and will see what it is for. I've ordered many things lately but can't think of anything else coming from outside the UK. But thanks for replying Sara, I'll keep you posted.
@Rory, is the customs note definitely for HEX6AGON? That seems like an extreme amount, especially for the reward selection. We didnt have these types of charges for our previous product, which was similar in packaging and weight. Please let us know as you learn more about this...
I have received a customs note in the UK for £18.80 and I might be wrong but I think it's for this package. I can't understand how this would be possible to charge this much. Anyone in other international destinations experiencing anything similar?
@J. Fribush - wow! Those are nice! Great job!
I got my package on Thursday. Another great project! Thanks, Sara!
Sara! I got my tiles yesterday. Beautiful stuff, have not installed them yet but very excited. Love the product! Will be buying again!
Wow @J. Fribush!! FANTASTIC pattern!
Got my Hex6agons in the mail today!! Thank you so much, Sara!! They look great, can't wait to put them up!
YAY! We are glad HEX6AGON tiling vinyl is already going up. We would love to see pictures of your installs :)
We have a handful of packages that are waiting on addresses or shipping, so send us the required info so we can send them your way.
Got my Hex6agons and put them up this past weekend! They look amazing!
I went out to do some errands this morning, and when I came home, my Hexa6gons were waiting for me! Can't wait to get started with these!
Thanks for the comment, Sara. Can't wait to get them!
@jo Ha Ha, we are glad you are so excited. Not everyones shipment has gone out yet. We are trying to get all orders out by the end of this week (fingers crossed). So if you havent gotten them yet, you will soon. :)
I was just wondering if anyone had received their hex6agons yet? I know it's only been 5 days, but I was just curious. Waiting (not so) patiently for mine! =o)
Last monday I received a "final reminder" email, so, when I clicked the tab to respond, it appeared an error message like this one..."we apologize, but it looks like something's gone wrong. We've been notified about this issue, and we're currently looking into it. Thanks for your patience, and sorry for the inconvenience. Please try again later". I've been trying during one week, but it always appears the same message. What can I do? Thanks and sorry for all the problems I'm having!
@nicole, Any pledge at least $20 over the base reward selection amount is receiving a booster pack in addition to their initial reward. We have contacted pledgers who have combined several reward tiers in one, and we will be sending along their specific requests as well.
I increased my pledge a while ago for the booster pack, but it hasn't been included in the description of what I purchased. I just want to make sure I did everything correctly, and it will be included with my original selection. I look forward to receiving them! Thanks!!
We may have to email you a separate invoice to add on international shipping. Let us look into it a bit more, and we will update you.
congratulations!!! how can I add $2 for additional shipping costs? thanks!
This is waaayyyy last minute, lol... If I double my pledge, can I essentially get 2 orders of what the single pledge would be? I would like to get the "135 + 20 bonus pack" for each of my 2 sisters.
Can't wait to receive my HEX6AGON tiling vinyls!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
@Kevin, the vinyl we use is made for applications that face the elements or wind, rain, snow, heat and cold. So even up in Canada, HEX6AGON should hold on tight to your windows. :)
How well will the hexagons stand up to cold weather windows for those of us in Canada?
@Rainey, You can still order the BOOSTER Pack, just add $20 to whatever amount you already have pledged. So if you ordered a $25 package, make your pledge amount $45 and we will add the Booster Pack at shipping. SOrry for the confusion. We are trying to take down the reward pledge from the main page, as to not confuse.
If you have any additional questions, send them along.
Hi - I have been getting your updates (thanks, I really appreciate them!) and would like to get the booster pack, but can't seem to figure out how to do it (it says sold out, am I just too late?) anyway, they are lovely. thanks!
Hey Sara, I'd love to bump my pledge for the gray/frost package, but since I already bumped my pledge earlier, I feel I cannot afford it. Best of luck! I am impressed with your backing so-far!
This is great, Sara. We're going to use them on the inside, full-length windows at our pool at the Midnight Sun Recreation Complex in Inuvik, Northwest Territories - high in the Arctic Circle. It'll be great to shine some color onto and out of our pool deck - while providing safety so that people don't walk into our windows!
Sara, Congratulations on your success! Loved your write-up on Apartment Therapy! Looks like a fun place to work! As a fellow project creator in California, I am excited to support you!
@Christie, We think HEX6AGON will make a perfect gift, as it allows the receiver to create a unique impression in their space. We are shipping in November. Until then, you are welcome to pick an image off of Kickstarter and print it as a gift place holder, OR email us and we can make a little certificate or something for your friend.
Congratulations, Sara! Any idea when you will be shipping? My set is intended as a gift... If not in the near future, is there a down-loadable image I could print and wrap?
@Melissa, currently HEX6AGON is not reusable. If you are concerned about using it in a temporary living space, they are removable from windows, without damaging the surface. Removable tiling vinyl may be an option in the future, and we will be sure to let everyone know. THank you for your "love" of HEX6AGON :)
I'm wondering if there is a possibility of making them reusable, or having that option for some. I am a college student living on campus and I would love to be able to use these, but if they aren't removable, then I cannot use them to decorate around my apartment.
Loved and Funded!
So excited for this! I just wish I would've found it sooner so I could've gotten the early bird package. Oh well. Awesome idea! Congrats on reaching funding so early on!
You got SOME backers here! Go for it!
I was instantly drawn to this when I saw it! I cannot wait to slap these on my window and have the fall/winter sunset cast a glow on my office desk. Very excited, beautiful product.
Sara, I love the creative beauty of these tiles. Very inspiring! Keep this and other projects coming. You are clearly on a very creative journey.
I like the permanent aspect of the Hex6agon, but it "would" be neat to have the permanent and temporary versions to temporarily decorate windows, cars etc... I have no idea what material the clingy stuff is made out of though or if it could even be done like this.
HEX6AGON is meant to be used as a decorative element. It is intended as a one time use product, not to be removed and reapplied. It is "permanent" adhesive, it will remove cleanly from glass with a bit of elbow grease. There is lots of valuable information included in the HEX6AGON campaign.
FACET, might be more your speed, and will be available for purchase again soon. Check it out in our last Kickstarter campaign, and email us if you are interested in learning more about acquiring FACET. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/119962669/facet-removable-vinyl-floor-tiles…
Awesome project. Are they removable and reusable? How do they stick to the windows? Will they leave a residue when you remove them?
We are still stunned at the warm response HEX6AGON has received off the bat. We are definitely playing with reach goal rewards. Stay posted, they are coming.
You are not alone wanting more specific packages... It seems like we may be able to offer packages that could stand alone or supplement existing packages...and then we could just make notes so you dont get charged for shipping and packaging twice.
Give us a day or two to crunch some #s and figure out what additional packages we can offer at special price points.
Are there going to be any reach goal rewards?
These are a lot of fun! I have some windows in the basement as well as a couple of long thin ones that could use these.
I was wondering if you'd have any add-on tiers (or perhaps we could just ask and raise the pledge accordingly) that would include more of "x" type. Like I'd love to get another 56 or more minis (or whatever would work out with the way they're created.) I'd actually take more than that.
What a cool product! Good luck, can't wait to try these out.
whoops sorry, i got the date wrong. i thought it had 50 says or something, wrong kickstarter sorry. ya, you are getting god stride for like 2 days!
