So if these sprinkles aren't "human-sized," just how big are they?

The average size of the sprinkles is around 5 mm. They're going to be the same size as the confectionary shape sprinkles you see in stores. And no, unfortunately the Police Box sprinkles aren't actually bigger on the inside. Last updated: Thu, Jan 16 2014 11:50 pm EST

How big are the bottles?

The bottles are called "5.5 ounce bottles" but the weight varies based on the size and weight of the sprinkle. You can expect around 4 ounces of the geeky sprinkle shapes in the bottles. One bottle usually lasts me 4+ times of decorating cupcakes. Last updated: Fri, Jan 17 2014 1:27 pm EST

What are the ingredients of the sprinkles?

The ingredients may change slightly, but they should be these or something ridiculously close: Sugar, Rice Flour, Partially Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil (Soybean), Corn Starch, Cellulose Gum, Carrageenan, Confectioner's Glaze, Various Colors All of the sprinkles are certified Kosher, nut free, and gluten free. Unfortunately the "Soylent Green" sprinkles will have to wait for another Kickstarter as the manufacturer is all out of people. Last updated: Wed, Jan 22 2014 12:18 pm EST

Are these designs exactly how they'll look?

The designs are still being perfected and the final look will rely ultimately on what's possible with the die mold and what looks best as a sprinkle. Remember, these are super tiny edible pieces of sugar. You will not be able to actually fit inside of the police box, fix things with the gears, or smite your enemies with the lightning bolts. Unless you try really hard. Last updated: Sun, Feb 16 2014 6:58 pm EST

Does my pledge include customs fees for my country?

While your pledge includes shipping, you are responsible for any additional customs fees or taxes to get the sprinkles into your country. Last updated: Sun, Feb 16 2014 6:58 pm EST

BackerKit FAQ

What is BackerKit?

BackerKit is a service that crowdfunded project creators use to keep track of hundreds to tens of thousands of backers—from shipping details, pledge levels, preferences and quantities, whether they have paid or had their card declined, special notes, and everything in between!

The BackerKit software and support team is independent from the campaign’s project team—BackerKit does not handle the actual reward shipping. For more information about the preparation or delivery status of your rewards, please check the project's updates page.

How does BackerKit work?

After the campaign ends, the project creator will send you an email with a unique link to your survey. You can check out a walkthrough of the process here.

How do I update my shipping address?

BackerKit allows you to update your shipping address until the project is locked down for shipping. To update your address, go back to your BackerKit survey by inputting your email here.

I completed the survey, but haven't received my rewards yet. When will they arrive?

As BackerKit does not actually handle any rewards or shipping, the best way to stay updated on the shipping timeline would be to check out the project's updates page.

Why can’t I log into my account?

Request a login link to your survey by entering your email here:

BackerKit will send you an automated email with an invite link to whatever email you pledged with.

I never received my invitation. How do I complete the survey?

The most common reasons for not receiving a survey email is that you may be checking an email inbox different from the email address you used to sign up with Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account, or it may be caught in your spam filter.

Confirm that the email address you are searching matches the email address tied to your Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or Tilt Pro account. If that doesn’t work, then try checking your spam, junk or promotions folders. You can also search for "backerkit” in your inbox.

To resend the survey to yourself, visit the project page and input the email address associated with your Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account.

When will my pledge will be shipped, charged or locked down?

That is handled directly by the project creator. BackerKit functions independently of the project itself, so we do not have control of their physical shipping timeline. If you want to check on the project’s status, we recommend reading over the project's updates page.

Can I upgrade or get multiple copies of my pledge?

This depends on the project creator’s decision. If you are unable to see the ‘Want to switch your pledge level?’ after clicking on your pledge amount under “Pledge Level” in your survey, then the project creator would prefer people not to switch pledge levels.
