      Yes the items were priced lower during the Tilt campaigns. Your BackerKit credit should be a higher amount than your Tilt pledges, but should cover the same amount of items.

      George, the side campaign pins are showing up for $9 in BackerKit but they were only $7 on Tilt. Am I getting something wrong? Also, Sent you an email regarding my survey and pledge manager.

    3. George Coghill 9-time creator on January 6

      Great to hear Shawn, and thanks! The sooner I can get some item counts, the sooner I can place the production orders.

      In the meantime, I've got some design work to focus on for the display cards. And as suggested, I am aiming to create exclusive display cards for the Limited Edition patches. Still researching it, but I think it's likely.

      Just received my email for the backerkit survey and filled it out. One step closer to completion! Can't wait, everything looks really great so far!

    5. George Coghill 9-time creator on January 5

      @Debi: Thanks! All the side-campaign patches will be available as add-ons in the BackerKit survey, but of course the pledge price was lower for all side-campaign backers.

    6. Debi Cole on January 4

      Just pledged for the Chain and Bell patch over at Tilt. Will also be adding the third patch on Backerkit. Can't not have the full set! :)

      @Professor Candy: the existence of a shadowy elite within the ranks of the Order Of Krampus has been a rumor throughout the millennia… the rumored Cantenatus Tintinabulum.

      Of course, it's all just a big conspiracy theory. Right?

      So, that "Chain & Bell" is a secret society within the Order eh? Some sort of Krampus illuminati? Who can resist that? ;o)

    9. George Coghill 9-time creator on December 28

      The 4th Krampus patch, the "Chain & Bell" design, was just funded over on Tilt! I'll leave the campaign open for another week. After that, it will be available as an add-on, but at a higher price.

      Check the recent backer updates for links to the private campaign (available to Order Of Krampus backers only).

    10. George Coghill 9-time creator on December 27

      Tilt is a bit more casual than Kickstarter or Indiegogo. It offers me the option to make the campaign private (so only the backers have access, since the side-patches ship with the main rewards). I can also extend the campaign on the fly, and if we get really close I can collect the funds and pay for the rest myself if need be. A bit more flexible.

      As far as the reason to raise funds for the additional patch and pin — many backers expressed interest in having these made. I wanted to offer the opportunity. They are totally optional and will not affect your reward on Kickstarter at all.

      How is tilt different than Kickstarter or indiegogo? And what is the reason for these additional patches having funds raised?

    12. George Coghill 9-time creator on December 21

      @Ragnar Hill: thanks!

      @Stephen: thank you!

      Have to say, I'm really liking the 2-week campaign timeframe. Of course, it's only ideal because of you awesome regular backers.

    14. George Coghill 9-time creator on December 21

      Just wanted to say thank you to all the backers who helped make this yet another successful campaign! I'll be posting a backer update shortly with details.

      I really appreciate all the support, enthusiasm, encouragement and feedback as usual. You guys are the best! Now, on the getting some Krampus patches made!

    16. George Coghill 9-time creator on December 20

      @Brandon: same here! I'll have that open for at least another week after the campaign ends, hopefully we see more backers on each.

    17. Brandon the Wut on December 20

      I hope the patch and pin in the side campaign gets funded. I want that patch and pin too!

    18. George Coghill 9-time creator on December 20

      The metallic thread was a big hit on an earlier campaign. These were a perfect opportunity to do it since the color and design worked out.

      The interest in patch or pin was too evenly split to just do one or the other. Hopefully it works out :)

      Thanks for supporting the side-campaign! And of course this one as well :)

    19. Debi Cole on December 20

      Super-excited to see these patches made with the metallc thread! Also, thank you George for giving us the option to choose patch or pin for our stretch goal (pin for me!) And I just contributed to the side campaign for a pin. Bwa-haha, Merry Krampus to me! :)

    20. George Coghill 9-time creator on December 19

      Thanks Soren!

    21. Soren Akqunaak-MacTavish on December 19

      Upgraded to the Limited Edition. :)

    22. George Coghill 9-time creator on December 18

      @Steve "Sedgewick Bellhop" Fennel: good to hear! The metallic thread is kind of pricey, but having an exclusive thread variant will really make it limited edition and worth the extra cost.

      The closer we get to all the Limited Edition slots being taken, the more breathing room I have with the funds.

      Offering the patch/pin stretch goals is also going to eat up a bit more of the limited campaign funds I have to work with. It all goes very fast :(

      The Limited Edition pledges not only get you the exclusive metallic threads, but it really helps me out as well.

      Big thanks to all who backed for the Limited Edition! Win-win for all of us.

    23. Steve "Sedgewick Bellhop" Fennel on December 18

      For that small price difference, who wouldn't want the shiny goodness of metallic (Christmas tinsel) thread?!?!

      @George: you are too good to us!

    24. George Coghill 9-time creator on December 18

      @Steve "Sedgewick Bellhop" Fennel: yep, all backers whose reward includes the Limited Edition patch set will be upgraded to the red metallic thread. Looks like you are all set!

    25. Steve "Sedgewick Bellhop" Fennel on December 18

      So, I upgraded to the Sublime Master....assuming I read the update right.....I get metallic thread?

    26. George Coghill 9-time creator on December 17

      @Hiram thanks and great to hear!

      George you really know how to keep your backers happy. So I upgrade and hit side campaigns. Happy happy joy joy

    28. George Coghill 9-time creator on December 16

      @Stephen: excellent, had a feeling you'd be picking one of those up :)

    29. George Coghill 9-time creator on December 16

      @Soren: I had some ideas for something along those lines. But let me think on this, great idea. You've got me thinking in some new directions.

      Not silver, metallic red. You know what I meant... :P

    31. Professor Stephen Candy

      Upgraded to the silver thread limited edition. :)

    32. Soren Akqunaak-MacTavish on December 16

      Hey, question. Would it be possible to make up certificates for the different levels of initiate. You know, like something that could be framed to accompany the Limited patches? I think that would be cool. What say you?

    33. George Coghill 9-time creator on December 12

      Thank you for the input on patches vs. pins. It definitely looks like a patch as the stretch goal is in the lead, but I am working out some options here before I make the final call. I think I may have a solution that will please all backers.

      And no matter what happens, there seems to be enough interest to have all the designs made up as patches and pins, so I will be doing side-campaigns to allow for those to be funded individually.

      I should have the info I need by the end of this week, and will be posting a backer update with all the details.

    34. Steve "Sedgewick Bellhop" Fennel on December 11

      So, are we getting the pin or patch as a stretch goal?

    35. Soren Akqunaak-MacTavish on December 10

      Definitely would want more patches as stretch go's, although am happy for pins as well. Either way..... "Krampus kommt!"

    36. Jeffrey Lowery on December 10

      I must toss in my vote for the stretch goal to be a patch. But I would hissy about a pin either. They all go, depending on the season, on my service dog and pack. Love them all and will continue to back them as I just love the work! Beautiful! Wait, does Krampus like being called beautiful?!?

    37. George Coghill 9-time creator on December 8

      @Steve: yep, custom patch backing is $1 per patch. Patches get iron-on by default, and custom backing can be Velcro, pin-back, or fabric magnet.

      For anyone wanting custom backing besides Velcro, please message me so I know.

      @Ron: noted!

    38. Steve "Sedgewick Bellhop" Fennel on December 8

      Disregard my previous post.....apparently I didn't read through the campaign page close enough :-)

    39. Ron H

      I would have to say no to pins. I'm too big of a person to see them, and I use the patches with velcro on my tactical packs. I'm not allowed pointy things since its assumed I'll put out a eye someday.

    40. Steve "Sedgewick Bellhop" Fennel on December 7

      So, is it still $1 per patch for Velcro?

    41. George Coghill 9-time creator on December 7

      @Erica: thanks for the vote!

      @Jeannine: so sorry to hear, but glad to have you on board now :)

    42. JeannineRS on December 7

      Darn it , had some bad headache days and wasn't able to pledge on launch day. Awesome to see the campaign was funded SO quickly!

    43. Erica M. Decker on December 7

      Would definitely love a PIN! I collect those too. Design #2 is best! (then #4, then #1). Awesome option idea, thanks!

    44. Josh Bell on December 7

      I think design 3 would look fantastic as an enamel pin badge, but I'd be equally as happy to have it as a patch and we'd be more likely to unlock all the designs, so my vote's for patches.

      George, I love your patches, but think it would be nice to have a pin set...perhaps all four designs. Just sayin'!

      Either new patches or pins is really a win, win for your backers.

    46. George Coghill 9-time creator on December 6

      @Cody: thanks for the input! I was hoping to keep the comments all over on that backer update, but no big deal. I was leaning towards design #2 as a possible pin, for the reason you mention. Design #3 is taking a beating! Glad it's got at least one fan :) And so far patches seem to be taking the lead by far.

      I vote additional patches for the stretch goals. I like both of the new sketches, and would help fund a side campaign for any patches that aren't unlocked. If the consensus leans toward the pins, I think designs 2 & 3 would work best (soft corners and simpler art on a small item).

    48. George Coghill 9-time creator on December 6

      New backer update (public) with a backer poll for the stretch goal item(s) and design(s): https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/georgecoghill/order-of-krampus/posts/1757502

      Two new Order Of Krampus designs revealed!

    49. George Coghill 9-time creator on December 6

      @Josh yeah I will be posting a backer update with info on stretch goals soon.

    50. Josh Bell on December 6

      More than $1000 over the target funding... stretch goals must be on the horizon.
