Shipping Update #3 - DONE
WHEW!! We are done. As of this morning, rewards have been shipped to all 1158 backers around the world.
It was seriously fun to hear all the countries and states as my packers (mostly ages 8 and 10) gave each other geography quizes. That said, if any of you ever run a Kickstarter and decide to fulfill it yourself, call me and I’ll talk you out of it. ;)
A few things: The USPS scanning sucks. About 40% of our domestic packages and 80% of international packages never show as scanned after the USPS receives them. I’ve gotten multiple reports of packages arriving even though the only scan event was purchasing the label. Rest assured that your reward is on the way.
Three have been returned so far and I’ll be in touch shortly on those. If you got the wrong color or have any other problems, please email me at Parker@tashtego.co and we will find a solution.
As of this afternoon, our store at www.tashtego.co is live! If you like what you ordered and want more as gifts, use the code “Kickstarter” at checkout to get the same $35 price from the campaign. Note the Instagram feed at the bottom - share your pictures!
As a note, all orders from the website made before the 18th will ship before Christmas. After that date, they will ship January 2 (still a small operation here).
I’ll follow up in a couple of days with a longer thank you note and some lessons learned. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the Tashtego Travel Kits. Thank you again for backing my campaign and making all of this possible.
