      Wow...finally found the answer....can't believe it was in response to me already asking it. Sigh...I blame it on baby brain. Sorry guys :)

      Hi. Was trying to search to see if my question has already been answered.

      I live in Canada and a 16oz cup is quite common here. Are there any future plans to make a 16oz cup?

      Hey Lynn! Great to hear that you like the latest design! We just added those lids to your order and followed up with an email.

      The new improved lid looks great. I need to complete the survey, but before I do this I'd like to add 48 lids to my distributor pack before I can pay for freight, how do I do this? You're doing a great job Huskee Team.

      Hey Chris,

      Thanks for your comment! We appreciate that you can appreciate some of the 'logistical nightmares' that we're seeking to avoid by taking a single colour approach to backers' orders.

      We'll be in touch with an update soon... and we'll give the chapter and verse a miss for now ;)

      Hi Guys
      Looking forward to a December update on production with more photos. Tough choice on the colours. The natural husk looked really good, but I eventually stuck with the charcoal. I would happily have mixed them, but appreciate that keeping all the orders single colour probably avoids logistical nightmares, which can only be a good thing. In my experience, any delay in shipping brings out the worst in too many backers, who suddenly become experts in packaging, shipping, and customs. I can provide chapter and verse on specific projects if you want to see how nasty it can get. ;-) Keep up the good work.

      Hey Tim, thanks for reaching out with your considerations!
      We have decided to keep each backer's order subject to one colour selection in order to minimise logistical challenges or errors that may impact the shipment of your rewards.
      Thanks for your understanding here - we appreciate it!

      I really like both colours....with my complete pack order of ,6oz,8oz,12oz....8x saucers and 8x lids. I wish i could order black...with maybe some natural like ( 8oz, 4 pack saucers,4 pack lids of natural ). I'd love to really show off theses amazing cups. I know theses come in packs of 4...and I'm NOT asking to break up packs. please consider

      Hi Dorine,

      Thanks for your question! We love that you are thinking about this, as making the most viable sustainable choices regarding colouring is something that we have also considered.

      The natural husk colour prototype featured in our update is just that – ‘natural’, with no bleach added! Additionally, the colour agents in the charcoal HuskeeCup prototypes are food safe and do not affect the cup’s recyclability. We have a dedicated R&D team who are seeking to continually improve our cup towards maximal sustainability.

      Thanks once again for partnering with us, and we trust this assures you that you can’t really go wrong with your colour choice!

      – The Huskee Team

    11. Dorine on October 27

      Question about colors: Is the “natural husk” how the husks appear naturally... or bleached? Is the darker color dyed? Is one a better environmental choice over the other?

    12. Huskee Pty Ltd Creator on October 18

      Hey backers! Thanks for writing in. We value your questions and just posted an update with our response! Speak soon,

      The extra shipping was already announced in the campaign, i find it fairly reasonable.
      Now just waiting on those beautiful cups. Wish that in the future there will be espresso shot cups :-)

    17. David Hunter on October 18

      Uuugh, I am trying to update my pledge to get the lids. I can't find the update my pledge section anywhere. Thank you.

    18. Frank Chun Yat Li on October 17

      Are there any real pictures of Charcoal vs natural husk colour?

      I am also surprised (and disappointed) at being charged extra for shipping on both Saucers and Lids especially given the cost of the addons is fairly high to begin with. Can we get the addons refunded?

    20. Caroline Marie
      on October 17

      +1 at David's question.

      Surprised, too, about the extra shipping (AU $6) for the lids.

    21. David Britt
      on October 17

      Are we meant to be charged additional shipping beyond the extra $20 for the lids??? Wouldn’t it have been smarter to add in the shipping BEFORE the survey?

    22. Matthew Cathell on October 17

      I like the most recent update about with the surveys. As mentioned a new color is available, could you please provide photos with both color options?

    23. Huskee Pty Ltd Creator on October 13

      Hey Ben!

      Thanks for reaching out. We have plans to send out our next update (which includes the survey) early next week.

      We've been making good progress on numerous fronts. Our production team have been hitting their benchmarks, and have some exciting updates about the lid, which we'll write about in more detail next week!

      Hi Guys
      Thanks for the update, and great to hear that things are on track. Keep posting the photos, looking forward to them. The one with the update underlines the size of the waste problem, and reminds us that Huskee isn't just a pretty face.

    26. Huskee Pty Ltd Creator on August 16, 2017

      Hi Piet!

      Thanks for writing in. We will be confirming your order (and Universal Lid bolt-on) in our backer survey, which will be sent out in the next few weeks.

      Stay tuned!

      Hi, I paid the extra $20 for the lids, how do I find out if they will be shipped?

    28. Huskee Pty Ltd Creator on August 15, 2017

      Hey Ben,

      The backer surveys will be ready in the next few weeks, and you'll be sure to be notified as soon as they are :)

      Hey Huskee Cup
      Any update with pledges? I haven't received mine yet and wanting to upgrade to get the lids.

    30. Huskee Pty Ltd Creator on August 2, 2017

      Hey @Ben
      HuskeeCup is packaged in boxes of 4 units, which means you can order them in multiples of 4 only!
      Perhaps the best solution is to order 8 :)

      Is there any way to order 6 cups instead of 4?

      Hi @Celest

      Currently, our 12oz cup is the largest in the HuskeeCup range, however, that may change in the future!

    34. Huskee Pty Ltd Creator on July 31, 2017

      Hey @ChrisElliot - thanks for your encouragement! We will most definitely be keeping our backers in the loop as we go into production, and are cognisant of protecting HuskeeCup's iconic design whilst exploring potential branding space. Talk soon!

    35. Huskee Pty Ltd Creator on July 31, 2017

      Thanks for the support @JerseyDevil @EmmaBrant @Hari @Brackney and @MarkBilton !

      @Anne and @Neil - you will have the opportunity to add more bolt-on items to your reward when we send you the survey.

    36. Huskee Pty Ltd Creator on July 31, 2017

      Hi there @Saqr, thanks for your support!
      As mentioned in the campaign, bolt-on products may require additional shipping. We will give you more details when we send out the survey.
      Many thanks,

      Congratulations on a big finish to the campaign. It would be great to get updates on the production process with photos while we are waiting to receive our rewards. Regarding your comment about working in branding space, I can understand how this might open the way to a significant corporate sales market, but I would urge you if at all possible to make this an alternative to the current design, and run the two in parallel. I think it would be a real shame to mess with what I honestly think is an iconic design.

      Saw the answer to my question in the latest update today, thanks! I'm sure many of us will add on lids in our survey. I am thinking the saucers will make great eco-friendly coasters, so I am adding those as well. Really looking forward to when these products ship; if they are as good as they look, I will be purchasing more for our family and as gifts, assuming you go to web sales. Congrats again!

      Will you guys work in a 16 oz cup as well?

    41. David Hunter on July 26, 2017

      Hello, I ordered the cups and the lids. Does my order come with the saucers or do I have to order the saucers separately?

      I'm really happy for your success!

      Congratulations on a successful campaign! I look forward to seeing the product in time. One question, I was happy to see the lids added, but wasn't fast enough to add the amount for them to my pledge before the campaign ended. I hope that when the surveys come out we can also add extras like lids and saucers then? Please let us know, thanks!

    46. Ann Pence

      I just added funds for saucers and lids. What a great idea switching the stretch goals to include lids instead of a new color. I'm astounded at how much funding has climbed so drastically in the past day. Congrats!

      If add lids would I get extra shipping charges ?

    50. Huskee Pty Ltd Creator on July 25, 2017

      Hey @Dorine! Thanks for your pledge & support!

      As mentioned, we will be sending out a survey at the end of the campaign where you can specify all of your bolt-ons. This will be a simple process which ensures that you get what you pledged for :)
