Pledge Manager: Card charging & The Big Box
I hope you're having a great week? It has been crazy hot in England these last few days and it feels like summer is finally here.
Pledge Manager Closing Date
Thank you to everyone who has filled in their surveys, so far 80% of you have completed the survey and this has allowed us to send our final numbers to our manufacturers.
We will be keeping the Pledge Manager open for as long as possible, and I will continue to update you on the closing date. Currently I can confirm the Pledge Manager will be open until at least July 13th and I will send out another update in a few weeks to let you know if this date will be extended.
The Big Box Stock Levels
With the Pledge Manager being open for an extended period I want to raise awareness about the Big Box and our stock levels.
The Big Box was offered during this Kickstarter campaign to allow our original backers to upgrade should they wish. However, it is important to note that we will not continue to print additional big boxes outside of this Kickstarter.
We lose money on each box we print and are only printing the amount requested through BackerKit with a very small quantity of extras to try and cover those who have not yet filled in their surveys.
This means that we could potentially run out before the Pledge Manager closes, so if this is an item that you would like please make sure you complete your survey as soon as possible.
We are printing a large quantity of extras for all other items and do not anticipate running out of anything other than the box during the next few months.
BackerKit Card Charging: Friday
I want to confirm the first card charging for BackerKit will take place on Friday, this means if you have purchased any extra items and did not pay for them in Kickstarter, your card will be charged on Friday.
As a general update, things are going well and we have now confirmed our final numbers with our manufacturers and provided all the non-printed files for sample production to start. The printed materials are due within the next couple of weeks and I'm confident we will get these delivered on time as well.
Once all the materials have been supplied to our manufacturer (the end of June) I will put together a timeline showing the next 6 months and keep it updated with our progress.
