Why is the shipping for the United States 6 Euro when the Kickstarter origin is in Paris, France?

For the US backers, the fulfillment will take place in the United States by Metalhead Minis. This decision was made by Lyn from Metalhead Minis in order to save the US backers money on shipping. This decision will save the US backers about 13 Euro each on shipping costs.

Will this Kickstarter affect the French version project that was crowdfunded on Ulele?

Contrary to what is being heard through the rumor mills, it will not affect it in anyway. The French backers are scheduled to receive their books in February/ March 2019. The United States Kickstarter backers are projected to receive their books in December 2019. This Kickstarter is also run by a separate person and company. Therefore, the French Ulele project has nothing to do with the US Kickstarter project. The only basic common denominator is that the book is written by the same artist. The main objective of this project, is that I (Lyn, Metalhead Minis) would like to bring another tutorial book from another artist overseas. This is for the American hobbyists or anyone else in the world, to have another person to be available to learn from. I feel that it brings togetherness and is good for the community to have as many people as possible to learn from. Since Mohand is a friend and I feel that he is a vert talented artist and sculptor, I discussed this idea with him and here we are today. =)

BackerKit FAQ

What is BackerKit?

BackerKit is a service that crowdfunded project creators use to keep track of hundreds to tens of thousands of backers—from shipping details, pledge levels, preferences and quantities, whether they have paid or had their card declined, special notes, and everything in between!

The BackerKit software and support team is independent from the campaign’s project team—BackerKit does not handle the actual reward shipping. For more information about the preparation or delivery status of your rewards, please check the project's updates page.

How does BackerKit work?

After the campaign ends, the project creator will send you an email with a unique link to your survey. You can check out a walkthrough of the process here.

How do I update my shipping address?

BackerKit allows you to update your shipping address until the shipping addresses are locked by the project creator. To update your address, go back to your BackerKit survey by inputting your email here.

I completed the survey, but haven't received my rewards yet. When will they arrive?

As BackerKit does not actually handle any rewards or shipping, the best way to stay updated on the shipping timeline would be to check out the project's updates page.

Why can’t I log into my account?

Request a login link to your survey by entering your email here:
https://the-art-of-the-miniature.backerkit.com/

BackerKit will send you an automated email with an invite link to whatever email you pledged with.

I never received my invitation. How do I complete the survey?

The most common reasons for not receiving a survey email is that you may be checking an email inbox different from the email address you used to sign up with Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account, or it may be caught in your spam filter.

Confirm that the email address you are searching matches the email address tied to your Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or Tilt Pro account. If that doesn’t work, then try checking your spam, junk or promotions folders. You can also search for "backerkit” in your inbox.

To resend the survey to yourself, visit the project page and input the email address associated with your Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account.

When will my order be shipped, charged or locked?

That is handled directly by the project creator. BackerKit functions independently of the project itself, so we do not have control of their physical shipping timeline. If you want to check on the project’s status, we recommend reading over the project's updates page.

Can I upgrade or get multiple copies of my pledge?

This depends on the project creator’s decision. If you are unable to see the ‘Want to switch your pledge level?’ after clicking on your pledge amount under “Pledge Level” in your survey, then the project creator would prefer people not to switch pledge levels.
