FAQ: The Chromatic Fates Tarot
For the most up-to-date information about the status of our project, check our project updates on Kickstarter!

Are the artists getting paid?

Yes of course!! I am actually earning just as much as any other artist on the project. We are taking out production and manufacturing costs, as well as commission fees for the artists who are designing our add-ons (this can be a bit stressful and tricky so I wanted to make sure they got paid like any designer) and splitting the remaining profit equally. That’s the primary reason that I’m aiming to keep the stretch goals and add-ons manageable. 2020 did a number on many of us who would normally sell art at conventions, so I’d love to be able to have the artists earn as much as possible.

Will early-bird backers be able to upgrade to Collector Tier or add add-on products and still get their package in the Fall?

Yes! That is- hopefully, if COVID related delays in shipping don’t hold back their packages because they’re waiting on a pin or something. It’s my goal to ship the early-bird decks from my house as soon as I can. We’re using a local fulfillment warehouse for the 700+ (and growing) number of packages that will need to go out afterwards. It is my HOPE that I will be able to speed up the delivery ETA of the Collector’s Edition packages as well, though they will likely still ship after the Early Birds.

Where are the shipping estimates for countries outside the USA?

This delay is my fault! Securing reliable estimates is very hard right now because so many countries are adjusting to the upheaval that COVID caused. The UK in particular is very hard due to the increased VAT fees for imports now, but I will definitely get out reliable numbers as soon as I can.

Can I add on an extra deck as an add-on?

Yes! The add-on feature for additional decks, pins, and altar cloths should be going live within the next day. Just be aware that additional decks will affect weight and shipping cost a bit.

Will decks be available after the Kickstarter ends?

Yes and no. Because this project involves so many people and they’re all due an equal cut of profits made, the Color Tarot Project itself won’t be putting decks in its storefront- it would just be an insane logistics process for me. Instead we’ll be distributing stock among the artists at-cost when the campaign ends and shipments are made- basically this means that your friends who miss out on the Kickstarter MIGHT be able to secure a deck from an artist, if they have a few extra, though this probably won’t be an option until around this time next year. The decks likely will not be designed to be sold in stores either. It’s a passion project and we’re hoping to reward you with a limited edition luxury item!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
