Tag Archive: Crowdfunding


If you’re like many people, you may not have heard much about Kickstarter before discovering Imaginary Friends Books. Right now, you may even be deciding whether or not to back our campaign and just what that means. So, we thought it would be helpful if we answered* some of the most frequently asked questions.

How do I back Imaginary Friends on Kickstarter?

Go to our Kickstarter campaign page, look for a green button that says “Back This Project”. Click on the button and follow the prompts.

How do I pledge?

Once you’ve selected “Back this Project” and are on the next page (or screen) scroll down to review the pledge amounts, accompanying rewards and delivery dates. Choose your pledge amount and select a reward by clicking on the appropriate radio button. Then, enter your payment information to complete the checkout process.

When is my card charged?

If this project is successfully funded, your card will be charged on Saturday, June 27, 2015 at 8:48 a.m. EDT, along with all the other backers of this project.

So I’m only charged if funding succeeds?

Yes! That’s part of what makes Kickstarter special. If a project isn’t successfully funded, no one pays anything.

What can others see about my pledge?

The project will be added to the list of backings on your profile page, but the amount you pledge and the reward you choose, will not be made public. So, other than Evan Jones and Stitch Media, your pledge and reward are private. They need to receive your pledge and reward information so that they can contact you for shipping details.

What if I want to change my pledge?

You can change or cancel your pledge anytime before Saturday, June 27, 2015 at 8:48 a.m. EDT.

Assuming Imaginary Friends is funded, how do I get my reward?

When your Imaginary Friends reward is ready, Evan Jones and Stitch Media will send you a survey by email requesting any information needed to deliver your reward (e.g. mailing address, T-shirt size, etc.).

When will I receive my reward?

When you select your pledge and reward amount, you will also see an estimated delivery date. That’s the date we expect to ship your reward.

Where do you ship?

If you back us, will send your Imaginary Friends reward anywhere in the world.

If you have a question about our Kickstarter campaign that we haven’t answered, please ask it in the comments and we’ll be sure to answer.
