Risks and challenges

All of the creator and team members involved in this project are professionals with years of experience and excellent records in making tough deadlines. While this is my first Kickstarter project, my team members have fulfilled a Kickstarter which have given us the experience necessary to complete this project on time.
As with most ambitious endeavors there may be unforeseen delays in printing/mailing that we are hoping to prevent, but otherwise we expect the process to go smoothly. We will keep Kickstarter backers updated if we do encounter any delays.
