Have a question?
Just wondering when our accounts are to be debited once we've completed the backerkit survey?
Thanks Miki :)
I chose the 74€ tier, and added additional 74€ to my pledge, as described in the FAQ. But in the BackerKit Survey I have no option to choose an additional package. How can I achieve that I can fill out the survey for 2 "Superfood Packs"?
@Merete Y, ♥︎♥︎♥︎
No worries - I just filled it in anyway to complete it.
@Merete Y, it's due to a technical issue we encountered with BackerKit.
We won't be using this address, and are actively working on solving this technical issue ASAP and removing the request for a shipping address for digital-only pledges. Sorry about that :)
Doing the survey - buy why is it forcing me to give a delivery address for the digital pledge? Doesn't make sense
@isabella, thank you SO MUCH for your kind words :) Looking forward to get these shipped to you! I got your details noted, and will be in touch. Hearts!
@James Acosta, check your inbox – we just sent the survey in an email, where you can finalize your order, including upgrades and add-ons :) Thanks so much for backing us. Mr. Pedro Almondovar says hi!
@Merete Y, no news on the EU-friendly shipping yet, I'm afraid. They survey will be open for at least 2 weeks. If we're able to make the shipping EU-friendly, we'll update ASAP. Thanks again so much, truly appreciate your support :)
Any news on eu friendly shipping yet?
Also, how long is the survey open?
Would I be able to upgrade or purchase other plush veggies?
congratulations on the project, great news Miki!! I look forward to cooking with your little veggies, and even more to translating the book into Italian - remember you (sort of) promised to let me do it!!! :) :) :) Can't wait... brrrrrr
@Karen T Smith, Miss Tomate and Mr. Pedro Almondovar are not "Products", OK? :-P
Thank you SO MUCH for your support, we truly deeply appreciate it. You rock!
I am so pleased this is going ahead! I can’t wait to have the finished product! �
@Jennifer Fischetto, Your comment made me smile. I can't wait to get the book and Mr. Tofu to get into your hands <3
@Teri Chlebovská, Thank you! It's the cause of helping more and more people go plant-based that started this project and my whole crazy journey that I wake up in the morning for. Your support means so much to me. <3
@momonoguiko, I believe in you – take your time :-P Thank you so much for your support. I truly believe that with this project (and the book specifically), you'll find it easier to go 100% plant-based. Promise to do my best to make it easier for you <3
Congratulations! I'm from Brazil and I couldn't resist to back this amazing project! I don't follow a strictly vegetarian diet but I love this kind of food :)
Congratulations and keep up the great job you're doing for this important cause! Looking forward to receiving the complete pack in half a year's time!
Thanks so much for this amazing project, and thanks to all the other backers who participated. You guys rock! I can't wait to snuggle with Mr. Tofu. He did tell me to message him after all.
OMG OMG OMG Thank you everyone for your support, we did it thanks to our AMAZING backers and even hit our last Stretch goal last minute. A Mr. Pedro Almondovar iron-on patch will be added to all :) Thanks to those who supported us with pledges and even with only good vibes – we heart you all, and thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Congratulations!!! I can’t wait to have the book in Hong Kong. What an awesome project. You guys are incredibly talented. I wished you a great success ❤️�
¡¡Felicitaciones!! Espero desde ya cualquier detalle sobre la producción del libro, y por supuesto, ¡que llegue luego!
Your project is so awesome! Thank you so much for doing this.
Your project is beautifully designed, its fun, and it communicates interesting and very important facts. This is exactly what the world needs and a new fresh take on plant-based and vegan visual communication. Well done!
This project is fully in line with my own mission as a graphic designer, and I too plan to spend my life communicating this message to a broader audience.
I am offering my help in any way I can. Would love to meet you one day.
Let me know if you ever come to New York.
Thank you for doing what you are doing,
@Zarah S P, thank you so much for your support :)
@Ivan Pellegrin, You're awesome, thanks for the kind words and support! :) Indeed, this is just the first step, and we have so much more planned. Stay tuned :)
– The SHK team
@Miki I'm so happy I've managed to support your project in the very last hour! Wonderful initiative, I have no doubt that your project will be a great success - and this is just the first step! :) Ivan
Thank you for the reply! Clever workaround there, thanks for the suggestion! ♥
@Helena Pires, thanks so much for your support, we <3 you! :)
We are actively working on making our shipments EU-friendly, though we can't promise anything just yet. But rest assured – once the campaign ends, you'll get an email asking for your shipping address, and you'll be able to change it right until we actually get to ship the products, expected June 2018, so you'll be able to choose where to ship the products.
Thanks again so much for everything :)
Hi!! Congrats on your project!! I pleged the book pack but it's hard since I'm in Europe and adding the shipping cost I'll probably will have to pay customs fees... After the process is closed, is there a way to change the shipping location, since I have a friend living in the US and maybe I can send the order to him?
@Zarah S P, oh my, we didn't even think about it :-P I apologize but it's out of our control. I can, however, suggest the following hassle-ish workaround: cancel your pledge, and then re-pledge through your own link. Stupid but might work :)))))
(Please don't forget to re-pledge. Mr. Pedro Almondovar will be so disappointed!)
So happy about this book and I have been telling people about it all over! :D
Now, I just today got the kickbooster link (how's that for late? LOL) and obviously I have shared it buuut here's my question: The last line says "Earn 10% cash-back by backing this project yourself!" and I am wondering: does that apply to people who backed the project BEFORE they joined kickbooster, too? :)
Have a lovely day!
@Merete Y, all our hearts belong to you <3 <3 <3
Thanks - today I updated my pledge to the pdf level - which is why it wouldn't make sense to get the book as an addon.
I'll keep it at this level and see how you do - then maybe take you up on the offer later if the EU friendly shipping becomes reality ;)
@Merete Y, technically there's no such option, but hey, we <3 you :) Shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll make it happen. Cheers!
Although there's apparently only 6 pledges left of the normal book pledge
Not addons - but change the pledge level?
@Merete Y, sure thing! all Kickstarter backers will get an email with the option to choose add-ons, at prices exclusive to backers on Kickstarter :)
Will I be able to upgrade my pledge level if you manage it - after the Kickstarter closes?
@Merete Y, thanks so much for your feedback and for backing us, you're awesome :) From the very first moment we mentioned that taxes may apply. That said, we are actively working on making our products EU-friendly, so hopefully all EU backers will have a nice surprise :)))
I'm sorry but promising to "do your best" to make it EU friendly shipping before actual shipping is not good enough. The risk of getting hit with a big extra bill is simply not acceptable
@Marco Kelly, hey, yass! With the survey at the end of the campaign, you'll be able to choose whether you want the book to have some of its pages perforated or not. Woohoo! :)
Hi, any news yet on the posterless books?
@Rodney D Soto, hey, thanks so much for your support! :)
Yeah, once the campaign ends you'll receive an email asking to finalize your order, including your shipping address. Cheers! :)
When will we be alerted to provide delivery address for shipment of the book?
@Tania, We can't commit to anything just yet, but PROMISE we'll do our best to make sure the shipping is EU friendly before the book is ready to be shipped :)
Please make an EU friendly option, that would be so helpful! :)
@Lawrence Hoo Kah Shing, no worries! :) You can replay it here:
Regarding the plushies – you'll be able to add them as add-ons to your pledge level once the campaign ends (you'll get an email about it), but prices aren't final yet. That said, if you're interested in a plush doll, there's a pledge level that includes the book and 1 plush doll at reduced price, so upgrade your pledge and make Mr. Tofu happy :-P
Damn miss my boi Mr Tofu livestream, can I buy his plushies after the kickstarter and how much will it be.
@Natalia Rivera-Vera, great point, didn't know that :)
I promise to reconsider. Either way, when you get the plushies and other stuff – you'll be able to name them however you like – most chances their "official" name won't appear anywhere on the actual products.
Thanks so much for your pledge – Mr. Tofu adores you, and so do I! :)
I just received the good news brought by the update #1. My only concern was the name "Pedro Almondovar". Did you know that in his film "Hable con ella" 6 bulls were killed? (https://www.theguardian.com/world/2001/jul/25/filmnews.film) The producers claimed that they were going to be killed anyway.... quite a stupid reasoning. Since I knew that, I stopped watching his films. I would not like to have a patch of an almond called Pedro Almondovar. Please reconsider this name.
As there were a few backers who asked about it – I'll do my best to modify the printing to include some of the books "normal" :) Can't commit to anything (it may affect pricing) but I promise to check it in the coming days.
Will the book also be available as a normal (non-strip-out) version? I'm not really interested in posterifying pages of the book.
