Over the last few years, we’ve managed to work with quite a few Kickstarter project creators. The vast, vast majority of them have been extremely great to work with, easy to communicate with and when problems occur more than happy to work with us. However, I’m going to talk about the bad experiences and what […]
December / January seems to be a great time for Kickstarter’s to be delivered it seems. Or perhaps it was just our various clients all needing their Kickstarter’s at the same time. Some of the Kickstarter’s we finished in the last month and a bit include:
Santorini Aeon’s End Tramways The Masks
I’m sure I’m […]
Recently, we’ve seen a rather interesting addition to our business which is our on-going fulfillment of games for publishers. This is mostly a Canadian phenomena though we have a few US publishers using us too. The interesting aspect of this business is that due to the low level of shipments publishers might have on an […]
Doing logistics for Kickstarter Games, it’s led us to think about what a ‘perfect’ shipment or the kind of shipments that make it extremely easy for us would look like. With that in mind, here’s a simple, low-cost shipment looks like:
single or only a couple of variations. It’s best if all add-on’s are just […]
Express Receiving – this is where we receive the books, check that the number of cartons on the package indicated are the number of cartons we received and mark off […]
Here’s a list of shipping cost to a variety of countries at the cheapest available shipping cost, shipped from Canada. This is for a 2kg, 30 x 30 x 12cm package.

1. Outdated Estimates
Shipping cost estimates that we provide are stated to be […]
One of the more recent requests we’ve had is the ‘All in One’ shipment. Basically, instead of having us receive multiple copies of a game and any additional add-on’s (more cards, expansions, etc from stretch goals), the all-in-one shipment option has the entire order come to us pre-packaged in a ready-to-ship box.
The idea behind […]
Sorry about the lack of updates, things have been quite busy finishing up a series of projects which has driven our focus to acutal work rather than updating this blog. In the last few weeks, we’ve finished:
the Networks Skulltales Draconis Council of Blackthorn
And are still doing on-going fulfillment for:
the 7 Seas games […]
We just got a great testimonial / valediction of the work we’ve been doing on our Kicsktarter projects. Specifically, the post by Jamey for the Scythe Fulfillment we undertook in Canada. For those who want a TLDR, we got a rating of 9.4 out of 10 with the only subtraction being that we only […]
