Have a question?
Mine is here and a beaut! Thanks!
And... my Wrap Buddy is already here!
So i’m stoked!
Thanks again, Bret!
@hand0rf: Glad you found it!
Never mind. That time it seemed to work. I am an idiot! It’ll be here Monday.
Nice work, Bret! Can’t wait to wrap something!
OK. So i’m an idiot I guess. Every link I use to BackerKit offers to have me fill in a new survey or it takes me to a place CLEARLY for project creators, not backers.
Is there a double-secret probation link we can - as backers - go to on Backerkit to see our individual account?!?
I trust my Wrap Buddy is on its way... I just figured it’d be cool to see the tracking number.
I'm not sure how the emails got lost; BK shows them all being sent. If anyone needs theirs, email me at email@example.com and I'll reply with your tracking number as soon as I can.
Go to your backer page on Backerkit and click "View Confirmation" in the upper right corner of the header. That will take you to your status page which will show your tracking number in a clickable link.
ET, yours is due to arrive Monday!
Looks like not all emails got sent. I’ll fix that shortly. Sorry! It has definitely shipped though.
I’ll check into it!
Hello.....Backer number.......... 220 ..........On kickstarter
I have not received a tracking number and went to wrapbuddies.backerkit.com and there is no link to check my tracking number.
@SweetKimy, I looked up the pledge here and it really was for no reward. Weird. I emailed you to suggest some possible solutions. Let me know by PM or email how you'd like to proceed. We'll get this fixed so you get what you thought you were going to get. :-)
That doesn't sound right! I'll check it out.
Well, I'm confused. The survey says that I contributed $25 and requested no reward. That doesn't make any sense at all!
So now my options are to get a single wrap buddy at the add on price or upgrade to 2 for $28 and have to pay $5 more for shipping!
Has anyone else experienced this? Was there some special reason that all of those months ago I would have intended to do that? I can't figure it out.
Thanks for your help.
Yep, Natalie, I goofed. I'll fixit shortly.
@Natalie, I can't see in right now but I'll check and get back to you. Thanks for asking.
Should I worry that shipping isn't being included in the pledge manager? It said I had credit left over but I'm sure that was supposed to go towards shipping
@Sophie, we had to trim our color choices down to 3 and aqua just missed the cut. If you don't want one of the other choices, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll issue a refund. But we hope one of the other choices will work for you!
Same for me: I want to choose the aqua color but in the question 1, the only choices are pine/cranberry/royal. Can you fix this to allow all colors available in the add-ons section to be also available in the main choice question.
Also, it is weird as I have pledged 20 USD and it says I have a 10 USD credit remaining - but not allowing me to add a second wrap assistant as add-on as add-ons are more expensive (15 USD each) than my pledge level (10 USD each)... could you please check and come back to us?
The survey/poll link isn't working for me - the aqua is my vote.
@Daniel Horter: Thanks! I wish I could do a factory visit and provide video & photos from there, but I'm sure I can talk someone there into snapping some images for me, at least. :-)
Thanks for the update. Following along with the design and manufacturing process is what makes Kickstarter fun. Thanks for sharing and keeping us in the loop. Happy wrapping.
Thank you for including the first stretch goal items even though we didn't hit the needed amount! This will be a great addition to your product.
@Miguel Ponce De Leon Jr
With regards to update #13- You mad genius!
I've given that spec to our design team as they're working on the final designs as well.
@Apit C L, Thanks for reminding me I need to add this detail to our FAQ!
Our prototypes work on any table up to 1.5" thick, with a 1" overhang. For the rest of the world, that's 38mm thick, with a 25mm overhang.
I have to say I like these projects because they are practical. One question I do have is will it work with any thickness of any tables? Or will there be a way to adjust the clamp to fit any table thickness? Elizabeth's idea of a stretch goal for a cutter would be great.
@Judy Baker, good question! They work fine on our kitchen countertops which are rounded. I'll try to get pics of a side view on Tuesday when I'm back from a quick bit of travel.
These Wrap Buddies are shown clamped to square ended counters. What about rounded, or bullnose granite? Will it hold as tight? Have you tried it? Thanks!
@Elizabeth Baldwin, definitely stay tuned!
Stretch goal -one of the ends can hold a roll of tape. Possibly removable so cutting edge is not always exposed? Or a sliding cutter for the paper! Then you can still sell us blades!
@ Genne Wiltrout: Glad to hear it!!!
Bret - the art paper holder idea is great. We can sure use that around here!
