Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, they are printed and ready to go! Those who pledge on the lower end, are only getting the cards made from the funded project, and they haven;t been made yet. Those pledge on the higher end, are getting those already made, and those that are going to be made.Last updated:
If the project is successfully funded, your card will be charged when the project reaches its funding deadline. If the project does not reach its funding goal, your card is never charged. hence the term "pledge".Last updated:
The projected finish date is in Septemeber 2012. There is 60 days to make the pledges. If the projected amount is reached before that, the project will start immediately, and therefore the projected delivery date can be adjusted to a much sooner date. The idea here is to get the project funded as soon as possible. Help do this by sharing the information via Facebook, Twitter, Google +, etc. Tell our your geocaching friends in you local geocaching forums, etc. - the more geocachers who are aware of the project, the better chance of it being succssfull.Last updated:
There were enough cards made in the original set to fulfill all the pledge rewards. Any remainder cards from either set will be donated to to worldwide events as event prizes.Last updated:
In each of the pledge reward descriptions there is talk about receiving random person cards, what are these?
As the story stated, I have been making geo-trading cards since 2008. For certain pledges, you may receive random cards from this list:
GeoLobo's 1000th Geocache 2009
Bluegirl's 1000th Geocache 2009
Blueline Geocachers 2010
Blueline Geocachers 2009
GeoLobo & Bluegirl get Married 2010

Each card cost slighly over 100.00 to print and ship. A total of 10 cards is $1000.00+ dollars. Then there is a cost associated with each illustration (10 illustrations at ~ $30.00+ each) and the cost of shipping and handling for shipping the rewards to each contributor. That doesn't even take into account the 5% fee Kickstarter charges, and the 5% fee Amazon charges for accepting the payments.Last updated:
Any additional funds generated from the project will be used to create additional cards, assuming there is enough to do so. For example: if the the amount of money generated is 200.00 over the goal, an additional card can be made in the set. So, instead of 10 cards, there will be 11. If 400.00 over the goal, then 2 cards, and so on.Last updated:
These cards created in this new set will be chosen by those who contribute on the higher end of the pledges. If there is a majority wanting to create a card related to some cache, event, or person outside of the US, then it will be created!Last updated:
We can't accept PayPal for Kickstarter funds, however, this is the method multiple other projects have recommended:
1. Get a Ukash voucher from their site (Ukash.com)
2.Follow the instructions there to get a Ukash NEO card, which can be used as a Mastercard on Amazon. (Please read the rules at their site first - we're obviously not affiliated.) Apparently you should add an extra $1 onto the card for Amazon's account processing system.
3. Pledge through Amazon with the Ukash NEO card the same way you would with a credit card.
There seem to be multiple explanations online on how to do this if you get stuck - hope that helps!Last updated:
