Latest Updates from Our Project:

Cyber Monday (and beyond)
14 days ago – Mon, Nov 27, 2017 at 04:36:22 PM

I've had a number of people tell me that they're planning additional Wrap Buddies purchases, or have friends & relatives who are interested. Nothing could make us happier!

So for you, your friends and families, feel free to use and pass along this coupon code for 20% off in the Wrap Buddies shop: WBKSFF (for Wrap Buddies KickStarter Friends & Family). The link above even has the coupon code pre-loaded for your convenience.

I'll leave this code good through the end of the year, and if any of you need one after the code has expired, please email us at and we'll set one up just for you. Forever. Because you all ROCK.

Thanks for making this one of the happiest Christmases I've had. You're the best.


Shipping complete!
24 days ago – Fri, Nov 17, 2017 at 06:37:37 PM

All our backer rewards have shipped (or are going to be locally delivered/offered for pick-up). If you have not received a tracking number, please check your backerkit account at

Expect tracking numbers to be updated throughout the weekend and into next week. Some backers have already received their rewards and more should arrive Saturday and Monday. I'll be monitoring the progress including for International orders through next week.

Tell your friends!

Our online shop will be having a 20% off sale for Black Friday / Cyber Monday. Tell your friends to stop by and pick up a set for themselves!

Thank you all again for helping us get to this point. Please share with us your pictures of Wrap Buddies in action, and tag us as @wrapbuddiesco on Twitter, @wrapbuddies on Instagram, or feel free to share on our facebook page at

Now I'm going to crash for a week or so and recover. You have no idea how good it feels to know these are all on their way...

Shipping has begun!
25 days ago – Thu, Nov 16, 2017 at 09:09:30 PM

Our air shipment arrived from the factory yesterday, and last night we completed packaging all the single orders of red and green Wrap Buddies!

Today, the elves are working on single blues and then will proceed to the rest of the rewards in increasing size. We hope to complete as many by the end of Friday as possible as all the elves had already scheduled a week of holiday during Thanksgiving week (11/20-11/24) making shipping during that time impossible.

We're having some minor issues relating to getting tracking numbers published to you through Backerkit, but they're working with us to resolve this while we continue to package, label, and ship. We kinda think you'd rather have the product than the tracking number, but we'll get the tracking numbers out as soon as we can.

Again, thank you so much for your patience. I know we'll be cutting it close for some of you, but we're doing everything we can!

See you soon!

Shipping Update
about 1 month ago – Thu, Nov 09, 2017 at 05:37:59 PM

Just a quick shipping update -- heard from the factory this morning that our air and sea shipments are ready to go. The air shipment containing all the backer rewards is due to depart Shanghai on 11/11. I'm not sure how many airports it goes through on its way here (I do know it goes from Shanghai to Tokyo but after that, it's rather opaque).

As I get updates from my logistics partner, I'll pass them along. Meanwhile, here's some beauty shots of...well, boxes wrapped on pallets.


While we're waiting for these to arrive, we're prepping boxes and getting ourselves ready to pick, pack, and ship as quickly as possible. Our plan right now is to start with orders for 1 and 2 Wrap Buddies (the majority of our backers) and proceed to larger orders from there.

For your friends, feel free to pass along this link to our online store which will feature a 20% discount on all Wrap Buddies orders from Black Friday through Cyber Monday: You can also advise them to just use coupon code WBBFCM (Wrap Buddies Black Friday Cyber Monday) to get the discount between those dates.

Finalize your shipping address
about 1 month ago – Sat, Nov 04, 2017 at 07:25:03 PM

This is it! We’re finally getting ready to ship! Our shipment is leaving the factory and will arrive here by air within a week or so. I want to be ready to pack & ship as quickly as possible after the shipment arrives. So...

We will lock down shipping addresses in 48 hours. That means you have two days to update your shipping address in your BackerKit survey.

If you need to review your shipping address, you can return to your survey by clicking the link in your survey email or requesting your survey link under "Lost your survey?" on our BackerKit project page at

If you haven’t answered your survey yet, you can still fill it out to get your rewards, but your shipment may be delayed.

We’re currently aiming to ship rewards before the end of November. If you need to change your shipping address, please make the changes in your BackerKit survey in the next two days.
