Frequently Asked Questions
As I'm a UK project creator, Kickstarter defaults to working in UK currency for all pledges. This is somewhat confusing as even though UK currency is shown, everything will be produced and eventually ship from the US directly to you when it's all ready to go.
So all non-US countries will be considered international in shipping terms. It's just Kickstarters policy when dealing with UK based creators and linking their bank account. It has to be in £'s, as off putting as it might be at first glance. The deck is valued first in US dollars and converted to the £ prices shown.
This will help save a lot of unnecessary shipping costs going back and forth between the US and UK.
So, I've included US shipping with every Reward level and international shipping needs to be added on top manually at pledge time .
Failure to include International shipping for anywhere outside the US will mean I will be unable to send your items, so please be sure to add it. Thanks for your understanding and my sincere apologies for any confusion.Last updated:
The simple answer is because it's not other decks. It's more expensive to produce than other decks. I wanted to produce something people would be really proud to own, but all the extra details and love to achieve that do add up. Comparing one deck to another doesn't give a true picture of value. Different decks costs different prices to produce, especially on low runs.
This year, the United States Playing Card Company have raised the costs of their custom print services. This means features such as foil stamping, special metallic inks, inner box printing, embossing, paper stock, custom seals and overall print quality is now more expensive to produce.
Also, the United States Postal Service have raised their costs too, so shipping prices have had to increase slightly. This doesn't help things but unfortunately it's out of my control.
As I'm a UK based creator, Kickstarter states I have to base my project in £'s even if the production and shipping will be US based (it may as well even be a US project). But I'm trying my best to please as many backers as possible. There are many barriers I'm faced with by doing this but I hope you can see the effort I've gone to trying to make up for it.
With higher costs, everything becomes a little tougher. It's unfortunate that we have to pass these costs onto you guys, however I'm hopeful you'll agree that the quality of the final product and other rewards will be worth every penny.Last updated:
At the end of the campaign, I will be sending a survey to all backers to clarify your pledges.This will include asking for your t-shirt sizes if you chose one, and, confirming what add-ons you want (if you have added extra money, for extra add on items, on top of your original reward pledge)Last updated:
To change your reward:
Visit the project page and click "Manage Your Pledge" then make a new selection. Note that changing your reward selection may not automatically change your pledge amount. Make sure the correct amount for the correct pledge is shown.
To change your pledge amount: Visit the project page and click "Manage Your Pledge". Enter a new amount in the pledge amount box. Note that doing this is not adding on top your existing pledge; the amount you enter here will be the total amount collected if the project is successfully funded. Be sure you've have international shipping included in you're located outside of US.
Changing your pledge amount as described above is what you should do when adding on extra items from the Add On Sheet.Last updated:
