Ember Forge also guarantees a great Kickstarter campaign experience, regular updates and a clear fulfillment process as well as a smooth, sustainable production of very high quality products. Let us explain why this is the case:
Our Ember Dice Etsy Store enjoys only 5 star reviews and you can check them all yourself here.
We will charge shipping after the Kickstarter concludes based on the actual costs incurred to ship. Payment will be collected via a Pledge Manager after the campaign. Shipping costs vary based on where you will receive your reward. Unfortunately, a one size fits all price isn't manageable.
Ember Forge does not make any profit from the shipping costs, all shipping funds will be covering the actual shipping, handling and fulfillment costs. The high majority of your orders will be shipped without additional customs costs, as indicated in the customs friendly shipping disclaimer above. However, there are cases in some specific countries that your local authorities will ask you for additional taxes. That is beyond our control. If you regularly receive crowdfunding rewards without any additional import costs, you should receive the rewards from the current campaign without any import costs. If you are unsure, please reach out to us via a KS message and we will make sure to follow up with your request.
Where necessary, we will pay to ship your rewards to our distribution centers to ensure a customs’ friendly shipping.We have already established a wide network of distribution and fulfillment partners to ensure a smooth and cost efficient fulfillment process for our backers.
FREE SHIPPING FOR GREEK BACKERS WITH BOXNOW.GR!
We are more than excited to welcome all backers from Greece with an additional perk in order to join, embrace and help our local community of Adventurers that want to get their hands on Ember Dice!
That is why we will be offering FREE SHIPPING to all that choose to pick up their pledge through Boxnow.gr. Boxnow is a trusted professional locker service with more than 1200 lockers in Greece that are available 24/7 for your pickup.
Within the pledge manager, we will get in touch with all our backers from Greece and arrange their preferred method of delivery.
Europe- UK- Canada Taxes:
Due to the new regulations of the European Union regarding the remittance of Value Added Tax (VAT), we have no alternative but to charge VAT tax. Therefore, after the end of the Ember Dice Kickstarter campaign, in the pledge manager, European backers (EU, Switzerland, Norway, Iceland) will be charged with the VAT percent of their pledge that corresponds in their country.
For backers in the UK, since Brexit, VAT charges on import are also incurred. Therefore after the end of the Ember Dice Kickstarter campaign, in the pledge manager, UK backers will be charged with 20% VAT on their pledge.
For backers in Canada, there will be a cost of Canadian Sales Tax. Therefore after the end of the Ember Dice Kickstarter campaign, in the pledge manager, Canadian backers will be charged with a 10% tax on their pledge.
ENVIRONMENTAL FRIENDLY PRODUCTION WITHIN THE EU
The whole production process will be taking place completely in our workshops in Athens, Greece and in the facilities of all the companies that we are collaborating with, including but not limited to the casting-molding and foundry processes, that are also based in Athens, Greece. The wooden dice vaults will be produced by Rathskellers in their facilities and workshop in Thessaloniki, Greece. Thus, the whole of the production will be taking place in Greece, which is a country member of the European Union and thus abides to all relevant environmental pacts and treaties for sustainable production, namely the Vienna Convention (1985), the Montreal Protocol (1987), the Kyoto Protocol (1997) and the Paris Agreement (2015). Greece, being a member of the EU, also abides to EU laws, treaties and protocols regarding minimum wages and abolition of child and illegal labor.
We consider the protection of the environment and sustainable production as major pillars of Ember Forge and thus we are very happy to be producing locally and not outsourcing our production to other countries, whose environmental regulations and practices cannot be easily checked and verified.
We are not and we will be using not using any plastic or plastic byproducts in any of our final products for our first Kickstarter campaign and we will try to do so in further projects that we develop and products that we make available to our customers.
All our metal products are made of 100% recycled and recyclable bronze alloys that are environmentally sustainable or by gold and silver alloys that are also fully recyclable and sustainable. Rathskellers’ wooden boxes are created by eco-sustainably and ethically sourced American Walnut and they also use no plastic in their production. We will be only using a very minimum amount of fully recycled and recyclable plastic in our packaging.
We strongly believe that our whole planet’s environment is facing a tremendously difficult challenge and if all people and most importantly all new business don’t try to act upon it, and produce while having the environment’s best interest in mind, future generations will suffer immensely.
This is a short explanation regarding the waves and why we have chosen this system of production and delivery. Although we have expanded in many areas, including new capital investments, new workshop facilities and more Ember Forge team members, there are still capacities to our production. In order for all stages of production to get all the attention they really need, time is needed with the products in our hands for the various necessary production steps, you can find more details about our production process in the next paragraph.
In a best-case scenario, that we need to produce and ship thousands of dice sets, while we have optimized and calculated our production, still we will be able to produce 1500-1800 dice sets per month, as a maximum. Counting the various add-ons that everybody will want to include in their pledges, we arrived at this wave system that gives us both flexibility but also guarantees you that you will get a premium product with high attention to detail, delivered on the the available timelines that we have indicated.
All those that pledge for a pledge of WAVE 1 will be getting their rewards and add-ons within the next 6-7 months after the end of our Kickstarter campaign, while, if the demand for Ember Dice is high enough, a WAVE 2 of all starting pledge levels will be unlocked, that will be delivered to backers within the next 10-11 months. We are also planning a couple of special pledge levels that could also be unlocked down the road, for which we will be separately informing you, regarding their production and delivery.
We aim that the very high majority, if not all, of our backers will be getting their pledges before a whole year since the start of our Ember Dice campaign passes! We have already started our pre-production and all relevant processes for some months now and we cannot wait to share our dice with all of you! :)
HOW ARE EMBER DICE MADE
Ember Dice are created through many different and also fairly complicated processes, utilizing knowledge and experience from design, molding and handcrafted jewelry all at once!
Now let's elaborate just a little. Ember Dice are firstly meticulously designed by Labros and our team, putting a lot of effort and time both in the theme and artistic part of the design as well as in the best possible practical applications that are needed for the various different dice. A lot of attention is put in the balancing of the dice, achieving this with a wide variety of techniques so that all dice are perfectly balanced.
Afterwards, we do a lot of testing with our dice to ensure the best possible mold creation, that will be used for the final products. We produce many different runs of test-dice and do quality control in the material, balancing, appearance, product details and all necessary variables.
Once our final molds have been created, Ember Dice are casted in metal (Bronze and Silver on occasions) in various partner foundries that we closely work with for many years now, all of them coming from a jewelry background as well, to ensure a very detailed, high quality and durable product.
Once our dice come out of the foundry they are very dirty and gritty and their surface is something like sandpaper, not to mention they have all these extra tubes which is where the molten metal entered the die. After we detach and do the first cleanup, each piece is hand sawed, hand filled, hand painted, hand polished and generally handcrafted by an actual person and not some automated process. As jewelers we appreciate and recognize the almost mystical qualities that exist in a piece that has been worked individually by a craftsman, and this is exactly the feeling that we want to represent with our creations! When you hold our dice in your hands, rest assured that they have spent quite a lot of time in our hands first and you will be getting an actual jewel of a piece above and before everything else! :)
Finally, the last part of quality control is done by our team to ensure that no single piece deviates from the highest possible quality and we perform the final product quality control and evaluation that include checking the balancing of the final products, as well as their durability and all the details that are more than significant to us. Finallly we package them and have them ready for delivery!
