FAQ: Good Movies as Old Books
For the most up-to-date information about the status of our project, check our project updates on Kickstarter!

How long will it take to receive my items?

Once the project is funded, I will have a few weeks in wrapping up final illustrations, finishing the book layout and getting it off to press. Printing time for a book of this size and construction takes about a month, including proofing, approvals, printing, binding and delivery. I am shipping prints and books together to save on shipping cost.

So if you ordered a book and prints, you should receive your items in late early August.

If you only ordered prints, you should receive your items in early July.

If I choose a print reward level, do I get to choose which prints I receive?

Definitely! I will provide a way for you to view all 100 of the finals and you will select the number of prints that correspond to your reward level. You can even select multiples of the same one.

Hey, why is international shipping so expensive?

After shipping first class international on a previous project, which was not trackable, I swore to never do that again. I lost many items in the mail with no way of tracking or knowing what happened. I am using the most inexpensive, but trackable form of shipping on this project. I am actually paying part of the cost for international shipping on the heavier items to keep the cost down. Hopefully this isn’t too much of a barrier for my international buyers.

Who's printing the book?

Shapco printing out of Minneapolis. They are doing all the printing and binding. The book will be a smythe-sewn hardcover book. Covered in cloth with a foil-stamped cover.

Hey, you know XYZMOVIE started out as a book, right?

Yeah. Early on I tried to ONLY do movies that didn’t come from books originally but I found many of my favorites wouldn’t be able to be included. So I decided not to follow that rule. These are interpretations of the movies (that yes, sometimes came from books)

What's your deal with books about 100 things?

It’s a nice round number and makes for hearty page count and book.

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.
