      Ive only just updated my email on kick starter. And therefore updated my shipping information. I pledged back in 2016.

      It is gorgeous. Of the campaigns I've backed, this is the one that I have truly been pleased with. :)

      Is there any way of checking if or when my copy was sent?

      Congrats on the Grammy win! How cool is it that we backed a Grammy winning project??

    8. Ozma Records Creator on January 22, 2018

      @Elliott Sneen, the version that is currently available is quite different than the Kickstarter "40th Anniversary Edition" that, as promised, will never be manufactured again. The limited, numbered Kickstarter edition had a cloth-bound box with foil inlay, 180gram vinyl, and a hardcover book. The standard edition has a regular box with metallic gold ink, 140gram vinyl, and a softcover book. Thank you!

      I was hoping this would be available outside of kickstarter. It's unfortunate they're your not keeping to your original FAQ's....

      You said it would only be available for people who funded it. Crummy.

      Hi,
      I finally had a chance to open mine. Packaging was great, which is odd why there is damage to the box set. The actual box set has a ding which caused a ding on all the interior pieces. Hoping I can exchange for a mint condition set?

    15. Kiran on October 27, 2017

      I forgot:
      Box set #05788

    16. Kiran on October 27, 2017

      Finally!
      After 50 days, my box set has arrived!
      Wonderful work of art just as Ozma Records had promised.
      The very first Kickstarter project that I've ever backed. I hope it is the first of many.
      I am a really lucky guy!
      Everything is ok!

      Steve Lowe on October 5, 2017

      I received mine a little while ago, and though this may sound like an odd complaint, the gold foil decal on the box is not, for lack of a better word, straight. I.e., it's about 4-5 degrees off of "true north." I couldn't see a way to contact the creators directly, so I'm resorting to this means. Other than that, it's a beautiful item.

      Creator,
      Please provide updated tracking info. The last update was from FedEX on 9.15. It seems the package was turned over to USPS. There should be an additional tracking number provided by USPS.

      12:09 pm In transit RICHMOND, CA

      In transit to local Post Office - Allow two to three additional days for delivery

    24. Tomas on September 29, 2017

      By the way, easily the best KS project I have backed, the updates were always a pleasure to read, and the finished product is far beyond what I expected. Congrats on a job very well done!

    25. Tomas on September 29, 2017

      Received! it's a beautiful boxset, thanks so much for all of your hard work!

      Has anyone found a good wall display case for this? ie: records, book, pin, etc..

    27. Jurriaan Wittenberg on September 27, 2017

      Got a letter from FedEx about a week after the package was delivered here in The Netherlands...
      So I thought.. here we go... import duties.

      But no: they sent me information on the customs documents of the package. Still no bill! They did note that Customs might still take auditory actions.

      Fingers crossed.

      @Spags Thank you for the tip! I was able to get a-hold of a rep from Bandcamp, which Ozma suggested and they "refreshed" my code and it seemed it's exactly like you and Stephen Keene-Elliott mentioned...not obvious, but there. Love how the community jumps in and helps out here!
      Thanks again all!

      I had a hell of a time getting the tracks to work with iTunes. sent @ozmarecords a message and hopefully they will fix, but in the meantime: if you use Windows, you need to rename the files (make them shorter) to get them to import properly

      @snak From memory, after the Code Redeemed page, you are taken to another page with the option to subscribe/setup your free/complimentary streaming account. Towards the bottom of that page, there is a drop-down menu/link that lets you select the format you want to download the audio as. It is just to the left of a "help" link (or something to that effect). It is there somewhere, but I wouldn't call it completely obvious. Good luck.

    31. Kevin R. on September 26, 2017

      Unfortunately, my old consumer-grade digicam functions no more, either by chance or design; not being rigorous enough to survive 15 years of use/abuse on this terrestrial body, much less that which the Voyagers cameras had to endure. So, unless I get another, no how-to uploads from me. :P

      snak on September 26, 2017

      @Stephen Keene-Elliott, thanks for the tip. When I click on the "download" link it takes me to a page that says "Code Redeemed" and link sent to my email. When I clicked on the email link that was sent, it takes me back the the same page that says "Code Redeemed" in a loop. But thanks for validating!

      @Colin Matthews and Christiaan Sijbranda: The difference between this Kickstarter version and the one available for order on their website is explained in Update 13 (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ozmarecords/voyager-golden-record-40th-anniversary-edition/posts/1954383):

      'Unlike the numbered 40th Anniversary Edition, with its gold foil-printed, cloth-covered box, hardcover book, 180 gram vinyl, and gold foil-printed sleeves, this elegant second edition will include a softcover book, three 140 gram vinyl LPs, metallic gold-printed sleeves, and the Voyager Trajectories turntable slipmat housed in a deluxe metallic gold-printed box. The price for this edition will remain the same as it was for the Kickstarter "40th Anniversary Edition"'
      - basically, a softcover book not hardcover; lower weight-vinyl; and metallic gold-printed box/sleeves rather than gold-foil printed box (with the box cloth-covered)/sleeves.

      @snak - I cant' remember how it worked when I first got bandcamp (I got it to work, as I have the music on my computer!), but if you go to the bandcamp page, and then at the top right of the page click on "collection", it'll show it listed there, and there is a "download" link beneath the comment box below the photo of the album....

      Re: Spags

      Many indie and audiophile record labels ship records outside of their jackets because rough handling during transit can cause the records to slice through the jackets. In addition, small or running-on-a-shoestring companies can save themselves some labor by not stuffing jackets.

      Spags on September 23, 2017

      Exquisite. Very pleased with the quality and effort put into this project and it felt like a shame to have to remove the shrink wrap.

      Is there a reason why the records were shipped inside the sleeves but not inside their jackets? Was that just to prevent possible damage during shipping?

      Also, did the audio-encoded images not make their way into the digital download? That would be unfortunate if not (and more so if they weren't digitised either). Regardless of this, I am still very happy with the result and pleased to have contributed in some small way to the preservation of those master tapes.

      snak on September 23, 2017

      Anyone else having issues downloading from bandcamp. When I redeemed the code, it made me sign up for an account, and when I activated the account, it sent me an email link, but that link just loops back to the bandcamp page with the voyager record.

      Any help will be appreciated!
      Thanks

      Got the records/book etc - All looks good though records look a little paler/see-through than I was expecting. They arrived at work on Monday but I was working away for a week so just collected them now at the weekend. Happy with them - now to find some way to play them. Thanks.

    41. Kiran on September 22, 2017

      Today, exactly one year ago, my credit card was charged in $170.00 but unfortunately I didn't receive my box set yet. I'm not sure but I can guess the Brazilian Customs employees are on strike. :-(

      Does the new CD edition will have a digital booklet?

    43. Kiran on September 22, 2017

      There are some differences between the limited edition on Kickstarter and the pre order edition: Kickstarter's have three heavy weight (180g) vinyls and also is numbered. The pre order have two CD's or three standard LP's and isn't numbered. The only thing in common is exactly the same price: $98.00

    44. Christiaan Sijbranda on September 22, 2017

      @Colin Matthews Yeah I was under the same impression, specially when you read the following line on the kickstarter campaign "An exquisitely-designed objet d'art, this limited edition Voyager Golden Record: 40th Anniversary Edition vinyl box set will only be available through this Kickstarter. It is the ultimate album package of the ultimate album package." None the less, this is truly an amazing and superb crafted edition!

      Colin Matthews on September 22, 2017

      I was under the impression that this was a strictly limited edition box set but I see that you are still selling them for delivery in November? Is there any kind of limit to this issue or will you just keep selling them indefinitely?

    46. Stephen Keene-Elliott on September 22, 2017

      @susana baldera lera - there was a Pioneer Plaque KS project, which also do them for sale for other, non-backer, buyers - https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/duaneking/pioneer-plaque-a-message-from-earth

      An Arecibo message plaque would be a nice one to add to my collection....
