All our rewards are listed to be sent/received in November. This is just a fail safe. We actually intend to ship them out as early as possible. But considering whatever rewards your pledge will include, shipping might take a little longer until all your rewards are available (with the exception of the FREE decks).
For backers outside the US, please read the rewards carefully to know what your shipping costs will be. Different rates apply for larger supplies but any additional funds will be mentioned. Please be sure to add the additional cost to your backing order for proper shipping.
