Sandra Tayler here, posting the shipping update since this is my area of expertise. Howard is busy creating more Schlock Mercenary.
All the coin orders are shipped.* This means that your coins are on the way. US orders should arrive in about a week. International orders can take as long as 3 weeks, though most will arrive before that. Questions or concerns about individual orders should be address to email@example.com and I'll do my best to sort it all out.
*We do have about 100 orders not shipped because the owners of those coins have not yet gone over to schlockcoins.afterthecrowd.com to give us their mailing addresses.
When all was said and done there were:
270 work hours
Most frequently asked questions:
Yes the Maxim 34 coin is supposed to have epoxy on only one side. This is because the glow in the dark finish of the other side works much better when not covered in a dome. The Maxim 11 Key Drop also has the dome on only one side, though in that case it is so you can feel the crater.
Yes we will put the coins into our regular Schlock Mercenary store. That will probably happen in late June or early July. We need to make sure we take good care of our kickstarter backers first. I will be spending the next weeks chasing down final addresses and resolving issues for customers whose shipments need extra attention. Then I need to catch up on all the other work that fell behind during the weeks when all of my work hours were absorbed by shipping coins.
If you have a question about your order, or about any aspect of this kickstarter project, the best address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Any messages sent through the kickstarter system are getting forwarded to me there anyway.
We have not forgotten our promise to put together the Unofficial Anecdotal History of Challenge Coins pdf. With shipping done, I can begin editorial work on that project. We expect it to take six months or more before the pdf is ready to release.
This concludes our coin shipping broadcast. Many thanks to everyone who backed the project. Your support and enthusiasm have been amazing.
