Last call for ADDRESS CHANGE!

12 likes

There are 178 shipments packed up and ready to mail. This includes the last of the international orders, oversized Magnet Comics and the custom artwork rewards. 

I wanted to reach out and encourage anyone still waiting on their Magnet Comic who has changed address to please send a message to me through Kickstarter and let me know what your current address is.

I'd like to ship all of these packages by Saturday May 16th so the deadline for submitting new addresses will be Friday May 15th. After the 15th, I'll ship to whatever address I have on file.

Additionally there are a number of returned packages I'll be sorting through in the next week or two and I'll be contacting those backers to verify addresses, etc. Some of them were never claimed at customs, so I'll be getting in touch to sort that out.

Thanks so much, and I'm happy to say I'll finally be bringing this project to a close.

International and other shipments

Most of the international shipments are out the door, including the classroom packs so you should all be receiving email notifications when they ship.

I'm hoping to have the rest of the rewards following in the next week. It's mostly the custom artwork remaining and a couple returned packages.

Magnet Comic - UPDATE #27 - End of the Year Status

15 likes

Hi all,

I wanted to post an end of the year update as we approach another holiday season that this Kickstarter has dragged on. Sorry to all who are still waiting on orders, it’s taken much much longer than anticipated to finalize the packing and processing of the final 400 +/- orders since I last posted at the end of August.

At this point all of the US shipments have been sent with the exception of a handful of the Custom Artwork rewards and the Classroom Packs. The (x20) Classroom Packs hit the mail on 12/29 and should be delivered in early January when school sessions start back up and international orders are still heading out the door slowly but steadily. And the (x5) oversized boards are heading out just after the new year as well.

I have hired an extra set of hands to help in the shop to move things forward at a quicker pace. You have not been forgotten and as I’ve always stated, each backer will get their reward. However, it has taken an extremely long time to make that happen and for that I am sorry.

This project was much larger than I ever thought it would be and it proved to be too much for me to handle on my own, despite my good intentions. I know a lot of people are disappointed in the length of the project and my lack of communication throughout. I have regrets about how I handled some aspects of this project but I can only ask for a bit more understanding and patience as I get the last of these orders out the door.

Thanks,

Erik

International Shipping [UPDATE]

Hi all,

I just wanted to let you know that I've been graciously offered some financial help to finish shipping the international orders. I'm packing up boxes this weekend and into next week and will proceed with getting orders shipped as soon as possible.

I'm looking forward to getting the last of these rewards out to you and wrapping up this long overdue project.

Thanks to you all!

Erik
