Latest Updates from Our Project:

Second Print Run/Orders Placed after July 31st
about 1 month ago – Wed, Aug 30, 2023 at 12:55:36 PM


This update is for everyone who is part of the second print run. You are part of the second print run if you placed an order after July 31st.

I've been getting a lot of emails and DMs asking why no shipping notifications have been sent.  The reason you haven't received a shipping notification is because the second print run is still in production.  As soon as production is complete I'll post an update.  As I wrote in the pre-order store, I'm expecting to have the cards on hand mid to late October.  When your order is shipped you'll recieve an email with your tracking number.

I wish I could get these out to you sooner, but I don't want to lower the quality from the first print run. 

Please let me know if you have any questions.  Thank you so much for your patience. 



All orders have now shipped!

Hello Everyone!

I am thrilled to announce all orders have now shipped out! Anyone who hasn't already received a shipping notification should receive one, by email, in the next 24 to 48 hours.

Also, I want to say thank you to everyone who donated, because of you this little idea I had became a reality.  Your support made this possible, and I can't thank you enough for being a part of this journey.

Please let me know if you have any questions or feedback. 

Thank you!


Delivered Duty Unpaid Fee for orders outside of the US
about 2 months ago – Wed, Aug 09, 2023 at 06:32:06 PM

Hello Again,

This update is for people outside of the United States who have already ordered.  I have learned more about international shipping than I ever thought possible this week.  With that said I have only just found out about Delivered Duty Unpaid fees.  This is a fee charged by customs once a package enters your county.  Customs will contact you and ask for the Delivered Duty Unpaid fee aka DDU.

Since, this was an oversight on my end.  I will be refunding this fee to you.  Send me a receipt or proof of payment and I will refund the amount ASAP.  For applicable orders already placed it's estimated the DDU is between $6.50 and $10.50.

*Future orders will not receive this refund since I'm making people aware of this fee in advance.

For people in the United States, who have decided to read this far, if you haven't received a shipment notification via email, yet.  It's likely because your order is on one of the final two shipments that will be taking place tomorrow and early next week.

Please let me know if you have any questions.



Shipping has started

Hello All!

I've started packing your flashcard orders.  Some orders have already shipped. I'll continue shipping them through next week. You will receive tracking information by email.  

I'll post another update once every order has shipped. 

Please let me know if you have any questions. 



Lock your shipping addresses
2 months ago – Thu, Jul 27, 2023 at 04:01:53 PM

I will be locking shipping addresses soon. That means you have two days to update your shipping address in your BackerKit survey.

If you need to review your shipping address, you can return to your survey by clicking the link in your survey email or requesting your survey link under "Lost your survey?" on the BackerKit project page at If you still haven't answered your survey yet, you can still fill it out to get your flashcards, but your shipment may be delayed.

I am currently aiming to ship the flashcards in early August. If you need to change your shipping address, please make the changes in your BackerKit survey in the next two days.
