Lunchbox Fam, It's Your Last Day (to complete the Snack&Sling survey)!
18 days ago – Mon, Feb 15, 2021 at 02:31:32 PM

Hello lunchbox fam! 

Happy February - the beginning of Spring is just around the corner. Now, today is February 15th! For those of us in the United States & across the world, you may be wondering "why are they making me look at a calendar the day AFTER Valentine's Day?" Well, first off,  because it's the best holiday to buy your snack a Snack Pack...But even more importantly: 

TODAY IS THE LAST DAY TO CHOOSE YOUR BACKER REWARDS ON BACKERKIT!   

Woah, that's a lot of caps. What does this actually mean?

At midnight tonight, the Backer Rewards will LOCK for all tiers, which means that we will no longer be taking additional backer requests for different strap colors & sizes if you haven't filled out your form. Don't worry, we have extra straps ordered so everyone will have straps for their Snack & Sling, but after this date you will not be able to choose Size & Color.

Can I get another Snack or Sling Pack for a friend?

YES! You'll be able to add these items as 'add-ons' in BackerKit at pre-order prices. 

What happens if I forget to fill this out after this date? Will I still get my pledge? 

Absolutely! We have ordered extra Black - Small and Black - Large straps in case you didn't fill out the form. 

Can I still change my shipping address after this date?

YES! You'll be able to update your shipping address until April 1st! 


Thank you for keeping up with the campaign, and we can't wait to see all the many places you take your Snack & Sling in the (hopefully vaccinated) world! 


All the best,

The lunchbox team 

Snack&Sling - BackerKit Deadlines + Team Update!
about 1 month ago – Fri, Jan 29, 2021 at 01:11:09 PM

Staying powered on the go with the Sling Pack

Hello lunchbox fam! 

As we get ready to enter our last full month of Winter, we wanted to check in on key project timelines & deadlines! 

 Timeline Check

After double-checking material lists / availability with our production partners, we are confirming that we are on schedule to honor campaign timelines. The first run of Snack & Sling will be finishing production on March 31st, 2021, and put on a container to Los Angeles in the first week of April. We should have product in hand in early May, at which point we will begin fulfillment of all pledges! 


Complete Your Pledges

At the beginning of January, we sent out your links to BackerKit, where we are capturing all the information we need to fulfill your campaign pledges.

There are just over TWO WEEKS LEFT before orders are locked and our strap quantity purchase orders are in! Please ensure that you complete your pledge (check the email that you backed the kickstarter with) so you get exactly what you'd like from the campaign! 

Don't worry if you don't have a final shipping address for whatever reason, you'll be able to change that up until April! 

Thanks for backing the campaign! 

If you have any questions or concerns, please email our customer success team at fam@itsmylunchbox.com. We love hearing from you, it makes our day! 


All the best,

the lunchbox team 

BackerKit Surveys: Going Out Today for All Tiers!
about 2 months ago – Wed, Jan 06, 2021 at 04:42:42 PM

Hello lunchbox fam! 

We're pleased to announce that our BackerKit surveys should be arriving in your inboxes TODAY! Keep an eye out in your email inbox to complete your pledge information!

What's BackerKit?

BackerKit is a service that helps collect all of your pledge information, addresses, and everything else the campaign might need to fulfill your pledge. We have previously used BackerKit before to fully fulfill our last campaign for the lunchbox hydration pack, and plan to use it again! If you're interested in reading more about the platform, please click HERE

You'll be able to choose your final strap sizes, your alternate strap color, and confirm your pledge address so we have all the information that we need to fulfill production! 

Timeline

Please Note: BackerKit Responses will be closing on FEBRUARY 15th, 2021 so we can get accurate counts for final strap sizes & colors to deliver for each and every one of our backers! We'll be periodically reminding everyone to complete their surveys, but make sure you at least have your survey responses recorded so we have your information ahead of our Strap Order! 


Thanks for your support,


The lunchbox fam

A FULLY FUNDED Campaign, The Roaring 20s, and a Grateful Team
about 2 months ago – Mon, Jan 04, 2021 at 07:30:24 PM

To our Kickstarter community (& new / old lunchbox fam),

To kick things off, HAPPY NEW YEAR! As we turn our collective backs on 2020, we hope your path forwards is filled with optimism. Historically, the period after a pandemic is a time fueled by adventure and excitement.

We specifically released the Snack & Sling Packs to coincide with the Spring / Summer adventures of 2021, and can’t wait to see where everyone takes their new packs.

Which brings us to our second point….

THANK YOU FOR FUNDING US, KICKSTARTER! With over $40,000 raised, we’re excited to lock in our plans to make the Snack & Sling packs a reality for so many of you. When we first set out, we wanted to build a series of packs that compressed all of the best features of the original lunchbox hydration pack …. and ended up building something even better along the way.

In one small package, you’ve got security, versatility, and aesthetic all in one. Well chosen!

Immediately following the close of the campaign, we confirmed our FIRST PURCHASE ORDER with our factory in Vietnam for the Snack & Sling Packs. We’ve used this factory for 2+ years now, and they are our trusted manufacturer for our main product, the lunchbox. We have already ordered all of the materials to fulfill your pledges, and will be entering line-production in January & February. In March, we’ll be completing final quality control checks (need to make sure every pack is PERFECT) before getting everything on a container to the United States in early April. We’re on track to deliver domestic Snack & Sling Packs in mid-May.

Did you think we were done? We’ve also been making small improvements to the pack as we finished up the campaign, including a piece of hardware improvement on the straps, which makes it even easier to adjust from different angles & prevents excess strap dangling (one of our TOP annoyances with other fanny packs / hip packs). We also slightly expanded the width of the phone pocket on BOTH the Snack & Sling (without changing pack dimensions) to future proof the pocket against larger phones. 

At the end of the day, we’re working on delivering the best product possible to our early backers who made this project possible in the first place. Without you, we’re a team with an idea, much less a product.

Thank you for supporting our dream,

The lunchbox team

P.S. Does a friend want a Snack / Sling Pack but not sure where to get one now that the Kickstarter campaign has ended? Check out our website HERE to purchase the pre-order. They may not be Kickstarter prices, but that’s why our backers get the best deals / bundles first!
