In a recent blog post, Kickstarter’s Carol Benovic announced:
“Running a project can come with a lot of pleasant surprises and sometimes a few unexpected curveballs. It’s a fantastic chance to become better at your craft, create the things you’ve dreamed of, and connect with the community that loves your work. Then comes the part where you might find yourself becoming an expert in international shipping, custom packaging, or the fine points of vendor relations.
“But if your goal is to create something amazing — a film, an album, a poster, a gadget — you probably want to put your time and energy into creating, not wondering how best to track package deliveries. And here’s the good news: there’s a whole community behind you, full of creators who’ve already tackled these challenges and can tell you exactly what works, what doesn’t, and who can help.
“Over the past few years, we’ve spoken with countless creators about how they made sure their rewards all arrived in one piece. They’ve shared stories from factories and mailrooms, and pictures from packing parties in their living rooms. Drawing from these conversations — every lesson learned and insight gleaned — we’ve put together a list of services that can help with all things fulfillment related.”
While sharing more details about the Creator Resources page, Benovic noted:
“The companies on the Creator Resources page offer services that range from printing stamps and shipping labels to manufacturing parts to help you make almost anything. And even better, they all have experience working with Kickstarter creators on projects across all of our categories. With solutions for projects both large and small, there’s something on this list that can help just about any creator out.”
