How does BackerKit crowdfunding work?
Crowdfunding is a collaborative way to bring ideas and projects to life. Project creators post their idea for a project, and backers pledge money to make the project possible. Backers get behind the scenes access and backer-only rewards, which can include exclusive products, special pricing, creative input, content, and more.
To become a backer, select a pledge level that features the reward(s) you would like to receive when the project is successfully completed and make your contribution.
All-or-nothing crowdfunding model: The creator sets a funding goal and a deadline to raise funds. If the project does not meet the goal by the deadline, backers credit cards are not charged and no money changes hands.
Crowdfunding projects can happen at various stages of the creative process. Make sure to check the estimated timeline of when rewards will be delivered. Project creators will keep you updated on the progress toward completion and delivery of your rewards.
Backing a crowdfunding campaign is not the same as purchasing an item from a store. When you back a campaign you are supporting the creation of something new. Rewards are almost always delivered, but are not guaranteed.
Can I add add-ons in BackerKit?
Want to add add-ons now? Great! You can increase the amount of your pledge by the amount of the add-ons you wish to add in the pledge confirmation screen if you want to account for the funds now, or you can wait to add them and be charged later in the pledge manager after the campaign is over.
When will I be charged for my pledge?
Your payment method will not be charged right away. You will be charged for the amount of your pledge when the campaign ends and the project reaches its funding goal. You will not be charged if the campaign does not reach its funding goal.
What happens after the campaign is over?
The Creator will send out a survey that will ask you for more information about your pledge, your shipping information, additional items you may want to add to your pledge, and collect shipping fees if applicable.
The survey will be sent to the email address we have on file with your pledge.
Any additional payment will be charged when you complete your survey and confirm your order.
Will I get to choose which wallets I want?
Title selection, shipping, add-ons and address are all confirmed after the campaign via the survey.
What about _______ book?
Join our campaign to see the new covers we are releasing regularly! We are consistently growing our library. However, remember that we are currently unable to add any books that are not yet in the public domain.
When will my order arrive?
1. We will be placing the order with our manufacturer during the campaign to cut down on fulfillment time. 2. The campaign will finish July 14. 3. You will select your desired design, pay shipping costs and confirm your address through the survey that we will send you in late July. 4. If all goes according to design, we should receive the order from our manufacturer in October and have travelbooks in your hands before Christmas.
How many cards/bills does it hold?
Roughly 6 cards and 12 bills.

Will it fit my passport?
Yes! The Travelbook will fit a U.S. passport, a Canadian passport, or anything smaller.
Roughly 10cm x 14.5cm
New Designs/Custom Designs?
Because of manufacturing and copyright restrictions, we are unable to print any obscure titles or titles that are not yet in the public domain. However, we love to hear your suggestions about which classics we should add to our library next!
We are going to use Quartermaster Logistics - But they currently are not shipping to the UK. Backers outside the US will be contacted by their local post office upon the packages arrical into the country, and those backers will pay the customs fees to have the project released to them.
