Before reading more, here are some things to know:
Introducing V2 of the Universal Lens Cap.
Truly a universal, durable and functional product backed by a lifetime warranty from the company that has set out to keeping your photography gear KUVRD (‘covered’).
Lifetime Replacement Warranty
The Universal Lens Cap does have a warranty. In fact, a lifetime warranty! For as long as you own the product, you're 100% insured against defects in material and workmanship.
However, we do NOT provide a warranty against damage or any other defects/issues caused to your lenses WHILE using or NOT using the Universal Lens Cap. In addition, we will not replace lost or stolen Universal Lens Caps.
If your lens breaks while using our product, we are not liable for your camera gear, its repair/replacement, nor act as a financial insurance agency against potentially harmful issues to your camera equipment, especially your lenses. The Universal Lens Cap acts as an aversion tool to mother nature and potentially harmful elements. That is it. We strongly advise you seek out and invest in insurance for your gear just as any other professional would do in any other industry! :)
Customs & Duties
Unfortunately, we cannot mark any pledge/reward as a 'gift'. It is illegal to do so. In addition, import duties and taxes are NOT INCLUDED in our reward levels. These charges vary by country and are completely out of our control. We are shipping the Universal Lens Cap all over the world and it is impossible for us to build the various customs charges into the various reward levels of Kickstarter.
But, this online tool can help you calculate additional costs;
Remember, we are the creators of KUVRD and the Universal Lens Cap, not international customs. You can use this tool as estimates when determining additional costs in receiving our products.
30-Day Money Back Guarantee
As stated in our warranty section, we will happily replace the ULC for any defects in material and/or workmanship.
We also provide a 30-Day Money Back Guarantee Policy. If you're unsatisfied with the Universal Lens Cap for any reason - within the first 30 days of receiving the Universal Lens Cap - we'll send you a full refund. We're not here to take advantage of our backers nor exploit their belief in us by sending them something they weren't expecting with the ULCII.
Just remember, every dollar from this campaign will be directly used to paying off mold fees, patent fees, initial start-up costs, actually producing the lens caps, producing the packaging, fulfilling those orders and paying off all other expenses incurred thus far.
Risks and challenges
Our biggest foreseeable challenge will be properly calculating, negotiating, and fixating costs and pricing with manufacturers for materials. Silicone is a rather volatile material, where, based on municipal laws, seasons and other related material-based industries, much of the cost of material used in the Universal Lens Cap can almost double overnight thanks to some shift or change in one of those aforementioned factors.
Luckily, we've already made a Purchase Order for 25,000 of the ULCII! Hopefully if we need to make another PO for this Campaign, based on the demand and current pricing of silicone, we'll be able to fixate or even decrease the unit cost!
Our second biggest challenge is determining a realistic 'estimated date of delivery'. Based on our history with our current chosen manufacturers, we can have a unit created and in our hands within 45 days. Taking into account holidays, quantity of units, priority of our order with the manufacturer and shipping to customers worldwide, we gave ourselves a buffer of an additional 60 days to handle any 'hiccups' throughout the process.
There are always unforeseeable risks, setbacks and hiccups which is why we plan to be transparent and do everything we can to keep our customers (you, the backer) happy.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
