A survey will be sent upon completion of the Kickstarter for you to itemize how many of each add on you would like.  

This product is available in the US with shipping cost as: US $9

LOCAL ST. LOUIS, MO PICKUP - If you would like to arrange a local pickup (and avoid shipping costs), near Hwy 55 and 270, just choose any "international pledge" option which does not charge shipping up front and private message me.   

International Shipping is now offered on several pledge levels, where you will be charged based on your address.  We strive to keep costs low and make our Bins accessible to everyone around the globe, but the reality is International shipping is expensive and as a new company, we have to use the resources available to us. Feel free to start at the $1 pledge and message us your country where you would want the product shipped if it is not listed below.  

Estimated shipping for International Pledges:

Canada: $10 - $20 Depending on Pledge level and add ons
UK/Germany: $15 - $30 Depending on Pledge level and add ons
Rest of the World: 
**(message me with your international address and desired pledge level and we can check on shipping for you)**

Shipping costs will vary with addons and Stretch goals but here is an example breakdown:

To Madrid, Spain example estimate:  

Sensei: $15 (including free base and 1 tray)

Double Sensei: $17 (including free base and 1 tray)

Nirvana: $20 (including free base and 1 tray)

Zen Master: $27 (including free base and 1 tray)

Risks and challenges

We are designing and manufacturing collectible dice/card game interlocking stackable plastic storage "bins". These will be produced and shipped locally (from St. Louis, MO). We have full access to the commercial grade machinery necessary to complete this project and produce rapid prototyping, but we are asking for your help to pay for the aluminum tooling, thousands of pounds of materials, and manpower necessary to make this a reality at an affordable price for everyone.

Shipping can be a challenge with any Kickstarter project. We will work to provide the best shipping price possible throughout the campaign.

*Due to the inconsistencies of many of the dice and cards that we have come across (bent cards, irregular shaped dice), we have noticed that the width of dice in each row may vary but we have tried to account for that with the maximum variation in mind. The bent cards would just allow for a couple less cards in a stack possibly.
