Risks and challenges
The biggest challenge comes from shipping a 12"x12" photo book all over the world, but working with fulfillment houses we are able to offer discounted shipping rates to these countries. Using multi-stage fulfillment and our fulfillment houses we will be working very hard to make sure fulfillment goes as smoothly as possible for our campaign backers but unexpected delays may occur. If they do, we'll be posting campaign updates letting everyone know the details.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
