WHAT IS BLUEPRINTS?
Blueprints is our crowd-funding platform for new products. We add new products to Blueprints and you, the customer, can choose to back the ones you like. When enough people fund a product, it is produced and becomes a regular fixture in our Shop.
HOW DOES BLUEPRINTS WORK?
We design a new collection of products and release them in Blueprints where customers can be a part of the decison making process by choosing to back the ones they like. Each product is available to be pre-ordered for a 21 day period during which customers can determine if the product will be made or not. Once a product has reached the 21-day mark, the pre-order period for that product is closed. The products that reach their funding goal get manufactured. This helps us keep prices low by only producing the styles and sizes that our customers desire. This helps us avoid unnecessary waste, in-turn allowing us to pass those savings on to you. We design handmade menswear which is made to order right here in the United States. By using crowd-funding, we are able to provide high quality products at an amazing value. Because there are no middlemen, we can offer the products at the fraction of the cost of what a larger company would charge. The basic concept is that our customers tell us what they want us to produce. If a campaign does not get funded, we will not make that item. This eliminates excess production and allows us to focus on creating the styles that customers really want. The products that do get funded end up becoming a fixture in the Shop.
WHY SHOULD I ORDER FROM BLUEPRINTS?
When you pre-order from Blueprints, you are bringing DeiDochi designs to life. We appreciate you showing your love for our products, and we would like to thank you for your support. Because customers are willing to order and wait for a product to arrive at a future date, we think it's only fair that the pre-order products are offered at a lower price than what they would be sold at once they become available in the Shop. In addition, all pre-orders have free shipping. Another reason to order from Blueprints is that you will be added to our Friends Group. Members from our Friends Group will be randomly selected from time to time to receive new products free of charge in exchange for their feedback.
HOW LONG IS A FUNDING PERIOD IN BLUEPRINTS?
A funding period lasts 21 days.
WHEN IS MY PAYMENT METHOD CHARGED AND WHEN AM I BILLED?
Your preferred form of payment will be charged at checkout and you will be billed immediately.
WHAT HAPPENS IF A PRODUCT DOESN’T REACH ITS GOAL?
In instances a Blueprints’ product does not reach its goal, we will get in touch to let you know and we will issue a full refund to your payment method. However, if the product was close to reaching its funding goal, we may decide to make the product anyways in which case we will notify you of the product status.
CAN I JUST WAIT FOR THE PRODUCT TO BECOME AVAILABLE IN THE REGULAR SHOP?
Certainly! But please be advised that you will not have access to pre-order pricing and will not be able to take advantage of the free shipping offered for Blueprints' products. In addition, you will not be eligible to join our Friends Group where you may be selected to receive free test products in exchange for feedback.
CAN I MAKE A CHANGE TO A BLUEPRINTS ORDER?
No problem, as long as the campaign is still in the Design Phase (meaning it is still being funded) you can make updates to your order. Simply login to your account and go to the orders section to make any necessary changes. Once the campaign has been fully funded and reaches the production phase, you will not be able to change the size. If you need further assistance, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO RECEIVE AN ORDER FROM BLUEPRINTS?
When you back a campaign, there is an estimated shipping time located on the product page. Please pay close attention to each product you fund as the estimated shipping date may vary between different products. You can also see products that have been fully funded and are currently being manufactured under the Production Phase of the Blueprints section. This will give you a rough idea of when we will ship out your order(s). If you would like more updated and detailed information, please check out your orders page located in your DeiDochi account. Under your pending orders, we will update the production status and estimated shipping dates for those orders. We try to update these every two weeks, as we get information from our production team. Lastly, as soon as we ship your order, we will send you an email with your tracking number. If you lose the email, you will be able to find that information on your orders page. If you would like further information, please feel free to email us at email@example.com.
