The short answer is "yes," and while we're sure that may elicit some groans, please bear with us. Anyone familiar with Fairy Quest #1 will know that we had some shipping issues, about which we believe we were very transparent. A large part of this was due to the fact we completely underestimated costs. International shipping KILLED us last time. We asked for $8 across the board but some packages to Australia or Japan cost us $40 each, or sometimes more! And the shipping woes also meant that on occasion we shipped two or three times to the same person!
Now unfortunately, Kickstarter is not set up to let us determine costs for each package. If we could, it would really help us. But we can't. We have to choose a number based on our best guess and go with it. We ask for everyone to understand that this is difficult. One thing we are definitely not doing is gouging anyone with shipping and handling - this is about the project, not killing it with hidden costs (AT&T, I am looking in your direction!)
If this makes you unhappy, please scroll to the bottom of our home page where there is an image of a bunny with a pancake on its head. Thank you! :)
