Is Auxilry sustainable or environmentally friendly?

The button and fastener material themselves are made with medical grade ABS polymer and brass materials currently the only thing strong enough to endure common and industrial washing uses. Both ABS and Brass are 100% recyclable and sustainable. The process of making the product itself is standard to button making and utilizes every bit of material waste as possible. They are made in a factory that has passed and is registered with Code of Conduct Compliance.

100% of the packaging is also recyclable in 2 ways - 1. to reuse and save for storing additional buttons 2. simply discarding into recycling.

For additional sustainability of resources, the interchangeability of buttons itself will help people purchase less garments in general allowing them to give new looks to old garments reusing the same garment more often and saving money in the process.

Can I interchange or reuse the fasteners?

This is a Yes/No answer. Auxilry fasteners once applied are super strong and do not fall off. However with the use of a tool such as nail clipper you can firmly clip off the pronged portion of the fastener thus making the prongs un-useable leaving you with a fastener base portion that can be re-used.

Is Auxilry button covers?

NO! Antiquated button covers are a thing of the past. They are bulky, larger than your existing buttons, therefore making them impossible to button and un-button (so you have to take them on and off every time you want to open a shirt) damaging the thread as well! Auxilry interchangeable buttons are the exact size of standard buttons and you can leave them on, or interchange them as you please. The feel and act as normal buttons without the hassle of thread but with the super power of interchangeable faces.

Auxilry makes it so much easier for the elderly and the visually impaired to apply a button. No more needle and thread or knowing how to sew. Applying a button is a "snap" literally! Anyone can do it in seconds!

Will you create larger sizes for suits and jackets?

Eventually and it is planned for another campaign coming shortly after fulfillment of this initial campaign. However for the initial offering I am starting with shirt sized buttons and build from this.

Will I get to choose the interchangeable button styles and fasteners of my choice?

Certainly! At the end of the campaign, I will send out a Kickstarter service that will give you the options for choosing styles.

Are the Auxilry fasteners and interchangeable buttons machine washable and dry-cleanable?

Absolutely! The Auxilry fasteners are made with medical grade polymer that withstands much higher temperatures than industrial dry-cleaning and machine washing. You do not have to remove the interchangeable buttons either. You can simply wash everything as is. Auxilry has been rigorously tested in over 80+ tests involving dry-cleaning, machine washing and ironing.

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 shipping addresses are locked by the project creator. 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 order be shipped, charged or locked?

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.
