**New Shipping Plan
Canada - Same fast shipping rate! Cards will arrive within days of shipping
USA - No border delays this time around! We have our shipping company to help us utilize USPS to help lower rates and get your cards to you within days of shipping.
Worldwide - A few of the tiers have slightly higher shipping, but have no fear! Shipping will be MUCH FASTER as everything is now going airmail and I will be sharing some of the cost of the airmail. Also less to no duty and VAT fees as packages will be listed with lower values to help you out. Also now is your chance to add-on V1.0 and V1.0 at below MRSP with FREE shipping (This is our first stretch goal but I am confident that you guys will help make this happen!).

Thank you everyone for being so patient in these unprecedented times!
Even though the Canada/US border closure has been extended for an additional 30 days with no promise of opening, I have been working hard and have found a work-around!!! It involves countless hours on the phone, me now having a US credit card, US bank account, a trip to Morris Manitoba, gaining extensive knowledge on NAFTA - especially section 321, and paying a company to drive your pre-paid postage packages across the border.
To sum it up:
USA: Cards will be mailed out early next week! Arrival times will be based on USPS shipping speed from within the US with no need to clear customs.
Canada: All cards have arrived.
International: Cards have been mailed out about 7 weeks ago. Delivery times vary from anywhere from 2 up to 12 weeks. I have been getting reports of cards arriving over the last number of weeks and continuing to arrive.
Thank you so much again for your patience in the matter. Had it not been for COVID19 the US would have received their cards over a month ago. It was a steep learning curve but we will soon have all of the Kickstarter orders out of the house and on the way to my supporters that helped make this all happen. We have learned alot and will be ahead of the curve on our next campaign.
Red Fox Playing Cards COVID-19 Shipping Update
about 1 year ago
– Sun, Mar 22, 2020 at 03:16:44 AM
I never thought I would be writing an e-mail about my playing cards that would involve also how we are affected by the COVID-19 virus, but here it is.
As many of you know, the cards arrived a few weeks ago, and at this time every package has been packed and is ready to ship or has already been shipped. This update will break it up into Canada, International, and USA orders.
Canada: Local Canadians who were part of the Kickstarter have received their cards prior to social distancing implementations. Canadian orders have been shipped and most (if not all) of the Canadians have received their orders in the mail.
International: Except for my one friend in Puerto Rico that is shipping out with the US orders (You know who you are 😉), all of the International orders have been mailed. A few of the orders that were expedited have arrived, but most orders will start to arrive within 2 weeks of this e-mail and up to 10 weeks, depending on what part of the world and whether the COVID-19 measures will slow down the mail. I have been told that packages will be traveling over the ocean by boat so please be patient, but know that they are on the way.
USA: To my friends in the USA, I have all of your cards packed and sitting in my living room right now. The original plan was to mail them today, but instead I am giving you this update. I’ll start with my original plan and how the COVID-19 affects it.
PLAN A: I secured a US return address from a friend, opened a US bank account and acquired a US credit card so that I could purchase US postage from my home in Canada to label the packages and drop off across the border at a US post office. The reason I chose to go this route was so that I could offer lower shipping to my US friends on the Kickstarter campaign, avoid any possible delays through customs for individual shipments, and avoid any possible customs/duty fees for any US orders. Basically to make it cheaper, quicker, and easier for you, as well as the possibility of more sales for myself, by offering the lower shipping.
REALITY: Now that I am ready to drop the orders off at a US post office, due the COVID-19 virus, for the fist time in history, they have closed the US/Canada border to all non-essential travel. This means that your cards cannot be delivered unless shipped from a Canada Post location which will essentially triple the shipping cost. With approximately 135 parcels this equates to over $1000 in additional expenses which was not in the shipping budget.
PLAN B: From everything I have read, the border closure is planned for 30 days, barring any changes, it should be open again in April. As soon as the border re-opens, whenever that is, within a day or two I will be able to ship all US orders from a US post office and they should arrive as quick as the USPS delivers (usually within 1 – 3 days). This means that if you can be patient along with me, as it stands currently your cards should arrive in about 5 weeks.
I know a few of you were really anticipating the arrival of these cards, and I apologize that you will be receiving them after the March arrival goal. An option would be to pay the difference in shipping to have it shipped directly from Canada to the US. If anyone is interested in getting an estimate on the cost and shipping time you can contact me directly.
In the meantime, you can drool over a picture of all the US orders. Nice white boxes, secured with bubble wrap, a red fox stamp and your Kickstarter order with free stickers and a free deck sleeve for all. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
