About

THE AURORA COLLECTION - Desk/Gaming Mats

*** All prices mentioned in this campaign are in Australian Dollars (AUD) ***

3Mates Games are excited to be able to bring to Kickstarter some of the artwork from world renowned artist, James Churchill. For over 25 years James has provided artwork for feature films such as Superman Returns, House of Wax and See No Evil, Theme Park Attractions including the Jurassic Park Flying Dinosaur Ride and Boardgames including Arena: The Contest, Martin Wallace's "AuZtralia" and Manhattan Project 2.

KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE ART

The artwork for the Kickstarter exclusive mats is titled "AURORA" - a highly detailed Steampunk-inspired digital illustration which took 6 weeks to complete. The size of this mat will be 900mm x 600mm, with an Extra Large version (1800x1200) available as a stretch goal add-on.

 All other artwork will be available on mat sizes of either 630 x 280 or 900 x 400.  

The artwork can be mixed and matched on the non exclusive mats with the selection taking place in the pledge manager.

 To view large scale high quality versions of the artwork featured in this campaign, please visit:   https://www.artstation.com/artwork/Dl9KO

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR STORES & BACKERS

We are here to support the FLGS community and are offering a unique opportunity for both stores and backers alike.

Bricks & mortar stores that pledge at the retailer level can message us and register to be a collection point for backers. Any shipment made to a store that has been registered as a collection point will NOT be charged any postage fees. This means that any backer that has their order sent to their local store for collection, will not have to pay any postage fees.

Retailers will receive free mats dependent on how many backers opt in to pick up from their store.

All retail pledges will receive 1 Standard Mouse Pad 240 x 200 along with the following:

5 to 9 Backers - 1 Mat of your choice (Does not include the AURORA X-Large Mat)

10 to 19 Backers - 2 Mats of your choice (This can be upgraded to 1 AURORA X-Large Mat if the stretch goal is met)

20 to 29 Backers - 4 Mats of your choice (Mats can be substituted for the AURORA X-Large Mat with 1 X-Large Mat = 2 mats swapped out if the stretch goal is met)

30+ Backers - 6 Mats of your choice (Mats can be substituted for the AURORA X-Large Mat with 1 X-Large Mat = 2 mats swapped out if the stretch goal is met)

We will contact the store to confirm artwork for any non-exclusive mats chosen

To be eligible for the free products:

- Store must back at the Retailer level and be registered as a collection point.

- Each backer must be separate pledge.

- Each backer must pledge for and have delivered a minimum of 1 Medium Mat.

- Backers must select the store as a pick up point in the pledge manager.

This information will be collected after the pledge manager is closed and the relevant free mats added manually to the order. We will contact the store at the completion of the pledge manager to confirm extra mats.

We respect the privacy of all backers. Agreeing to have your order delivered to a collection point, requires us to pass on your Kickstarter name as well as your mat selection to your respective store so they can confirm at pick up. We will not share any other backer information. We will post regular updates of shipment so backers know when to expect to be able to collect from their respective stores. Backers will be required to take a printout of their pledge manager receipt for collection. 

There will be NO postage charges for pledges that are collected from a store.

********************************************************************************

********************************************************************************

Risks and challenges

With every project there are risks and challenges but, although this is our first major campaign, we have done a lot of preparation and ground work prior to launching this campaign. We have investigated multiple manufacturers and had many samples printed as well as had discussions with multiple fulfilment companies.
We have taken every possible step to minimise any problems and feel we have enough knowledge & experience to overcome any issues that may arise.
We have estimated delivery for January and are confident we should have no trouble meeting this deadline. All the artwork is mostly complete, although there may be some minor adjustments required, and ready to go and some samples have already been produced so production will be able to commence as soon as we have confirmed numbers.
Fulfilment is the one thing that can throw up the biggest issues. Again, we have investigated many avenues with this and have multiple options available to us which is why we have decided to charge postage in the pledge manager. This will allow us to fine tune exactly which will be the best method and the most economical for all backers.

Although this campaign contains mats that are listed as being exclusive for backers of this campaign, we reserve the right to make available any remaining stock at conventions, special promotions, future campaigns and our website. If these mats are made available for sale, the price will be set as such so as to not disadvantage backers of this campaign.
