ADD-ONS: PURCHASING MULTIPLE ITEMS

As you order more inserts the postage weight goes goes up and each add-on covers a small portion of that so we all keep saving on shipping. Want the Star Wars Imperial Assault insert and to add-on the Elder Sign insert? Sure thing! I have a PRICE TABLE that shows a lower add-on price for that Elder Sign insert.

PRICE TABLE

Calculating your Pledge amount: A Helpful Guide

Select your primary pledge then use the add-on chart to add the cost of the additional items to reach your new pledge amount.

Shipping

Postage to anyone in the Continental USA is FREE.

EU and Canadian: add a one-time postage add-on of $20 to your pledge

Worldwide Shipping: We can ship to countries outside of Canada, the EU and the USA. For the countries shipping costs can vary depending on the location. Please send us a message listing the inserts your interested in and we'll check out the postage costs based on shipping to see if they fall under the $20 add-on price range or if a slight increase is required.

Post Kickstarter Survey

When the Kickstarter is complete I will send out a survey that will allow you to select what you wanted to apply your total pledge funds too so no need to worry about that now. Just a little math now and you'll check a couple of boxes a bit later and your good to go!

Example: Zorthon, Ruler of the Omega Galaxy Cluster, wants to buy Elder Sign. Zorthon Pledges at the new Elder Sign that includes shipping at a pledge price of $31 USD. Zorthon also wants Suburbia. A look at the Add-On Chart lists it at $26. Zorthan has a mailing address here on Earth in France. That’s a EU international address so Zorthon needs to add $20 to cover a portion of the postage costs. Zorthon’s total pledge amount is $31+$26+$20=$77. When the Kickstarter is complete Zorthon will get a survery that lists the primary pledge of $31 for elder sign with a $46 credit, Zorthon will select EU international shipping which accounts for a $20 credit and then selects the Suburbia options which through the power of math sets the total balance to $0. Zorthon now awaits the arrival of some rather epic inserts.

OUR GOAL

Thinker Tinker Maker will use the funds raised from this campaign to acquire its own laser cutter for production and future prototyping. A large initial launch order will allow us to buy materials in bulk at a discounted rate. All products in this campaign are listed at the discounted prices based on the bulk option. After all backer items have been shipped, we will launch an online store with the standard prices that will include at least all the self Assemble Items.

Risks and challenges

So far I’ve produced and sold a few dozen of these inserts and created dozens more prototypes working out all the aesthetic, dimension and production bugs. All cutting files for every product available in this Kickstarter are complete and ready to move into production. I have multiple distributors for materials lined up as back up plans in case anything material retailers fail to provides either the quality, quantity or lead time agreed upon. My biggest worry is awesomeness. If too many people want these inserts I am limited by a set production and packaging rate. I have a contingency plan for that. If popularity reaches a level I feel will risk a missed delivery date I will set production in waves based on earliest backers or insert production efficiency. This will help prevent a complete failure on my projected ship date and convert the shipping method to a series of steady beats. My various spreadsheets and calculations account for materials, setup, fees, packaging and handling. In an effort to show my backers the big picture of finances I’ve selected the core numbers and made a pie chart for clarity because I like pie charts, and pi, and pie.
