Lockdown Dates, Australian shipping, and Mugs
Thanks to all who have filled out the survey over in BackerKit. I'm only missing 10 now.
I will be going through the orders this week, checking on the shipping charges and make sure the right one was chosen (Australia/New Zealand backers, see farther down for your special circumstance). I'll send you an email if I need to change it, so keep an eye out for that!
Also, come Friday, Nov 25th, I'll be locking everything down. This means you won't be able to change or add to your order anymore. I will also be locking down addresses shortly after that and intend to start shipping on Nov 28th. However, shipping will probably take me three weeks to get through. If your address might change during that time, please message me so I can hold onto your order until your housing situation is finalized.
In the meantime, I received a sample of the amazing magic mug! Here it is in action:
It takes about 15 seconds to warm up (and the water needs to be HOT or it will take a lot longer).
Isn't is awesome? I think it turned out so cool! Can't wait for you to get one, too!
Australia/New Zealand Backers
I think I've figured out the best way to do this. I'm going to use the prepaid satchels (with extra padding). They seem the easiest, especially since I'm not at all used to figuring out cubic weight. The smallest one for Australia limits at 500grams which won't even hold a NAV book, so I'm going to use the medium one. It holds up to 6ish pounds and should have plenty of room and will be about 12 USD
New Zealand, you have three choices of small (which can hold one book; cost 15 USD), medium (which can hold about a book and 2 tshirts, I think; cost 25 USD) and large (which can fit pretty much everything else; cost 32 USD).
To get the new shipping rates, go back to your surveys, go to the pledge questions where it asked about shipping and scroll down to either the "Australia" one or the "New Zealand" one (if they're together, that's the USA-based shipping price). Pick the needed size and package and then you should be all good!
Also, I will be having a long layover in Melbourne, it turns out, on Saturday, Dec 17th. If you're willing to meet me somewhere in Melbourne, I can hand-deliver your orders. Message me if you're interested.
If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment or message me. Thanks!
