Deluxe Constellation Dice: Spectrum

Created by Gio Lasar Design

Extended sets about space and the Apollo missions in new color combinations, including glow-in-the-dark painted dice. All shipments will be mailed from Italy, with an expected transit time of two to six weeks pending customs and destination. Having successfully sent thousands of parcels worldwide, and since international tracked shipping can be much more expensive than the dice you are getting, shipments will be untracked unless agreed beforehand. Shipping fees are based on weight, and are usually under €10 for Europe and USA (ranging from €5 for the smallest packages, to €20 for heavy ones).

Easter Egg
6 months ago – Sat, Apr 03, 2021 at 11:09:52 AM

They look sweet, but please don't eat.

Easter egg: an image, message or feature hidden sometimes in plain sight, but always unexpected.
 

Spring is finally back again, but we may need some extra color this year. Having sent all the rewards in time for Easter, we'd like to offer you backers a special treat before the online store for this campaign is advertised to the general public: a sweet double set of candy looking dice.

There are only 10 available though, otherwise where would be the fun in hunting them?

Please click here to take a look, and enjoy a relaxing holiday time!

Almost there!

Winter is coming to an end, and hopefully the next months will brighten our days with better weather and increasingly better news. Let's start today with a few. The team started fulfillment in mid January, right after most of you had submitted the surveys. Orders have been locked, invoices prepared, and in just a few weeks all your dice have been sorted out and packaged. By mid February all the rewards for EU backer had been sent. 


In the meanwhile, we applied for a special permit to print in-house on the envelopes a barcode called S10, used to couple all parcels leaving Europe with an electronic packing-list detailing their content, to be submitted to foreign customs at the time of mailing. Being now informed in advance about what's coming their way, transit through customs should be smoother and take less time.


On the flip side: this new S10 barcode is mandatory since January 1st for all mail sent outside Europe from Italy, but other countries started using it since last year; this resulted for us in returned shipments, apparently for no reason. Moreover, these barcodes (that are like tracking stickers, despite not being used for that purpose) are still quite hard to get in large quantities, and not even local post offices had rolls to spare; that's what forced us to go through the aforementioned, time consuming authorization procedure.


Anyway, the permit has been issued and the remaining shipping labels - including barcodes - could finally be printed. The preparation of the digital packing-lists took extra manual work and we are looking into automating this process, but right now this prevented us to send everything in one go. We are not over yet; however, most backers should still be receiving their rewards by March as planned. 


One more thing: while all of this was taken care of, unfortunately other issues that had nothing to do with this Kickstarter required personal attention, thus the lack of updates (sorry about that!) and no posts on social media.  Thanks for your patience and support, expecially to those of you who already posted some pictures, filling in the blanks :) more are coming soon!

Accelerating

Whatever the mission, all rocket launches have in common an amazing transition: from perfect stillness, to the unstoppable thrust they must generate to win gravity.

This is more or less how we'd like to fulfill this campaign (with a bang) because the only sure way to speed things up in the current situation appears to be starting as soon as possible. And that's what you did, as well! Over 75% of backers have already submitted their BackerKit survey, so their cards could be charged to proceed with invoicing and prepare for shipping. Thank you!

If instead you couldn't, or you need more time, it's ok. Your reward will simply be shipped later. 

By the way, now you can also use Paypal to take care of shipping fees and add-ons :)

Santa's Got Something For You!

First things first: Best Wishes to you all! Can't wait to kick 2020 out of the window :)

It's been a busy couple of weeks, away from screens - couldn't answer to messages for a while - but your rewards have been prepared, the packaging material sourced, and the Pledge Manager is ready!

What happens now?

In a few hours, you’ll receive an email from BackerKit (our Pledge Manager) with a special link to your survey. If you used your Facebook credentials to log in to your Kickstarter account, the BackerKit survey is sent to the email address you use for your Facebook account (if you have another email address that you'd like to use, please send a message).

When you receive the email,  just click the link to respond (you don’t need to create a BackerKit account for that).  Through the simple interface you will be able to provide your shipping information, purchase add-on items if you like, and take care of the shipping expenses.

What about Santa?

The campaign didn't reach it's stretch goal, but we behaved and it's been a long hard year. Through a special agreement with the jolly old man, stretch goals will be granted! But just for one day :) You will find yours in the add-on section, please remember to include it and submit your survey on the 25th to receive it!

If you can't, take a look around anyway: as a backer you are still getting special discounts!

Oh, Oh, Oh!

Last 2 hours, Stretch Goal still needs a nudge!

Last-minute suspense!

Funding is slowly approaching 200%, but time is ticking!

First of all, thanks again for supporting this project :)

Pledges keep coming and we are close to the Stretch Goal that would bring you more dice, but we're not there yet! The good thing is, you can still do something if you'd like to.

  • you might increase your pledge slightly, as an advance for shipping expenses
  • you might upgrade your reward to a more complete one, as a gift to yourself ;)
  • you might share a link to the campaign on your social media (bit.ly/dicespectrum)

...then cross your fingers, grab your popcorn and stare at the counter! :D
