I’ve coordinated the shipping and fulfillment of products since 2013, yet every time I do it, I’m daunted by the complexity of the process. I can only imagine how intimidating it would be for a new creator.
Sure, I have a number of articles about the fulfillment process, but just like on Kickstarter project page, sometimes an infographic is easier to grok than a wall of text. So I asked the fine folks at Fulfillrite if they would be open to creating a graphic to share with you. The graphic can also be used to share with backers to help them understand why manufacturing and shipping their game doesn’t happen overnight.
Keep in mind that if you’re using different fulfillment centers worldwide (like Spiral Galaxy in Europe, Starlit Citadel in Canada, and Aetherworks in Australia), the August 19 step requires multiple shipments, not just one. It can save you a lot of time and money to ship from the manufacturer directly to those fulfillment centers.
Big thanks to Fulfillrite and Brandon for putting this together! Brandon also writes an excellent blog about creators, Kickstarter, game design, and entrepreneurship–I highly recommend it.
