We will be using Backerkit to manage your color choices for your dice and dice bags, as well as your shipping address.

Shipping

We will be using Canada Post to ship the dice. This results in fairly cheap shipping and is reliable. 

Risks and challenges

As with any Kickstarter, there is a chance of failure, however, I already have the manufacturer lined up and the artwork is complete. I am also currently getting the dice molds made. The only thing left to do at the end of the campaign is manufacturing the dice and shipping them.

I have budgeted approximately seven months to get the dice manufactured and shipped. In my experience, this is likely to take less time, but I wanted to make sure I didn't have to send delay notes to you. I aim to under promise and over deliver.
