Risks and challenges

As this is my first project there are two major risks and challenges that need to be overcome; production and shipping.

Production
Scaling the manufacturing to meet order volume will be the biggest challenge as production time is entirely dependant on the volume of orders. I am in talks with manufacturers to find ways of upscaling production while still keeping sets affordable, but final production time cannot be calculated until after the campaign when exact quantities are known. Every effort will be made to get the project completed on schedule, but priority will the towards product quality rather than speed of production.

Shipping
Shipping large and heavy kits from a country as geographically remote as Australia is also difficult. Every effort has been made to ensure postage costs are affordable, but dealing with the logistics of international postage will be challenging.

The estimated delivery date is May 2018, but this is only an estimate. Due to the logistics of international shipping, backers in different regions of the world may receive their rewards sooner than others.

Please note that international backers are responsible for paying all customs fees, import duties, VAT and any other relevant taxes. Relevant customs declaration documentation will be filled out, but shipping delays through customs may occur due to these charges.

I would have liked to be able to make this project more internationally friendly, however as it is my first project the logistics of dealing with customs issues would have caused unacceptable delays in completing the project.

Terms and Conditions
The images and videos of the products presented are prototypes and works in progress. The final look of the rewards are subject to change and may differ from what is presented in the Kickstarter project.

If you have not logged in to confirm your pledge within 2 months of the backer response emails being sent out, you agree that we have fulfilled our obligations to you in full for payments received. In certain circumstances confirming your order or refunding your pledge may be possible after the 2 months window at the discretion of Lost Sawmill.

Refund Policy
Refunding your pledge in full within 14 days of the campaign’s end is possible. Beyond this date any refunds will be less the Kickstarter processing fees which cannot be recovered after this point. An email to confirm your shipping address will be sent out when product packaging begins, refunds are not possible after this time.

This project is being funded in AUD and any refunds processed will be in AUD.
