Why prepare Board games Fulfillment in advance？
Voice of Experience
Most board game developers and board game publishers think about fulfillment only at the latter stage of their game development. However, from our experience, we strongly suggest starting early during the crowdfunding campaign, even if it's just research.

Board Games Fulfillment will not be easy
Over 80% of Kickstarter projects fulfill rewards late due to various difficulties in board games fulfillment, and quite a few projects have had little profit left due to a lack of planning. So crowdfunding publishers need to rethink "Is it easy to fulfill and ship games?"
Fulfilling & Shipping board games is not just include packing game boxes, pasting address labels and dropping them off at the courier. For example, packaging materials and packaging methods have an important impact on the freight and the safety in transit. The mode of transportation will affect the delivery rate and the delivery time, and even the cost of duty &VAT.
Actually, most board games manufacturers do not offer competitive service because they don’t have rich expertise or resource to handle it.
Optimize Board Games Shipping from China
Since the shipping fee usually accounts for 10% to 15% of the crowdfunding funds you raised, creators who have more cost-effective board game fulfillment earn more. Smart board game publishers usually will choose a 3PL fulfillment center customize the best fulfillment & shipping solution in advance, thereby they can set aside the board game shipping fee to keep the smooth delivery."
Initial Ideas for Your Board Games
Game publishers must consider the look, feel and physical properties of the board games. Reaching out to some fulfillment service providers will be helpful in making early decision on the dimension of the game box, the materials of the game pieces and even the number of folds of the games!
This is because the size and weight of the finished product will affect the storage and shipping charges, which in turn affect the cost estimation and profit margin.
Illustrate with example
For example, a fulfillment specialist may provide valuable advice to reduce the dimensional footprint of the game box slightly to qualify for a significantly lower shipping rate. Such information is useful when working out details with the game manufacturer.
Always have shipping optimization in mind, otherwise, it could be too late for any adjustments after the manufacturing stage.Get Custom Solution
