Swag Extras and BackerKit Address Update Cutoff

Posted by Dave Gandy (Creator)

Swag Extras are Awesome!

Hello lovely Font Awesome backers! We just got our swag upgrade stickers and magnets in-house, so we wrote up a whole article on how awesome they are and how awesome Sticker Mule is to work with. We've got some great photos of the finished products, so don't miss it!

Update your BackerKit Address

T-shirts are going to the screen printers as we speak and are going to start shipping out next Tuesday or Wednesday if everything goes to plan. Mugs should arrive late next week and should also be shipping out shortly. So make sure to update your address in BackerKit if you've recently changed addresses, because after Tuesday, we'll be locking these down completely!

Next Up

I just spent several week agonizing over the look and feel of the different icon weights (solid, regular outline, and thin outline). Early next week, look forward to the next update in the repo of the newest icons. They'll include quite a few new icons, stylistic updates, and the first look at the regular outline icons.

Also, we're starting to get photos of the enamelware mugs. These things are absolutely gorgeous. We'll go into full detail next week!

And make sure you read the article on Font Awesome 5 Kickstarter swag extras!

      @Jacques Pernet is definitely a first time backer, or a troll bot?

      They're looking great! I want some stickers now, and a mug. Think the shirt could use some work. Maybe something a little more subtle pattern of icons?

      @jacques pernet Do you have any idea how crowdfunding even works? Have you read ANY of the communications sent thus far, or the campaign description? This is Kickstarter you know, not Amazon... you won't get the product right after the funding collection period ends.

      @Jacques Pernet Did you really read the news ? They will deliver the original Pro set by May of 2017.

    11. Panayiotis Lipiridis on

      I would like to see the icons first instead of getting the swag updates.

    12. Jouva Moufette on

      Hey Shawn, you should take down that link. That is your PERSONAL link. It shows your address and may let someone change it.

      Fontawesome is one bog hoax, never got what I payed for! One big bla bla. A lot of promises and excuses, but have more than 1 miljon on his account. Well done I suppose?

      How does one update their "BackerKit Address"?

    16. Robert Burke on

      Is there anyway I can get a response. I have previously sent a very important question to Dave but have not gotten a response. I know you guys are probably busy but its about my pledge nd i'm not sure where else to get an answer.
