Hi Henry,
I am not able to purchase add-on items, only pre-orders and there is no box to enter the coupon code.
You told me that I could add another pledge as an add-on because it was not possible to back two pledges.
Please help!
Cheers

Thank you Cliff for your support! No pressure to buy add on. Its only option for our community to have chance to add single items, as our rewards were all in packages and maybe some friends would like more pens, books, inserts or books. You are correct. The survey (upcoming) will allow you to decide which covers (white marble or black marble) and pens (black pens or blue pens, FriXion or imSTONE). When the survey is filled out, we will be able to make the delivery, as all proper details are given, including the shipping address and contact details for the courier. Hope the above sums up bit more? Sorry didn't make it clear. Usually it is the survey then addons. Just that our store is ready ahead of our survey, so we have launched the store first and look for feedbacks from our community to make it better. The survey for the pledges will be released next Tuesday (6/26). Wish you and everyone a fantastic weekend!

Thank you WillOfSilence for the comment. We checked your status and share, so a free passport already noted for your pledge! So you are all set. The free passport promotion event is for during KickStarter. If anyone has not received a like the shared facebook post or have shared on other social media during the campaign, please write to us at
stonepaperfans@gmail.com
We will check and tag free passport for you, as we have noted in our updates! So for all our backers, we just need to do the survey, which we need to wait for KickStarter to finalize everything. It will take about 2 weeks, so the survey will be sent out around 2 weeks from now, and then we can finalize production and deliver the books out. The free passport will be delivered with the pledge! Thank you. Wish you a fantastic weekend! Henry

Thank you Irvin for your question. Its a very good one. We didn't get to mention much about the imSTONE erasable pen, as it was something we have been working on, and came to live during our RockBook campaign, so we wanted our community to benefit. We are working on a video clip showing the differences between the 2 pens (FriXion and imSTONE). The video will run bit late, so we will do some photos for now, which looks like going up on the last 24 hr in our campaign page. The conclusion from our experiment, is that the imSTONE erasable pen works equally as well as the FriXion pen (erasing). For imSTONE erasable pen, we cooperate with the biggest pen manufacturer in China for a pen that works well, at about half the cost. That's why we have the option to replace 1 FriXion pen with 2 imSTONE erasable pen. We understand how quality and consistency can be a big problem with Chinese products, that's why we work with the best brands and have our own team in China to carry out quality checks. This is the same as NUT BlueTooth Finder, our RockBooks and all other items which we provide. We work with the best in China and Taiwan to shorten the learning curve, so we can provide the best possible experience for imSTONE innovation. It took us 10 years to get the lightest paper today, so we can design and promote the RockBook which does not weigh like a stone with our 288 pages (144 sheets)! For some people, the special formulation in imSTONE erasable pen will allow an even better smooth writing on our paper. We do urge you to experience, and tell us your thoughts! We were surprised ourselves with the price-performance. If the imSTONE erasable pen truly does not perform to the same standard as the FriXion, we are happy to replace it for you. We want you to know, we didn't go for the imSTONE erasable pen because it is more economical, but it actually performs just as good, so it's the best value for our community. However, it is not easily accessible like the FriXion pen in worldwide. We could always have stayed safe with FriXion pen. We just like to share successful experiences together. ^_^ The "using pencil for best results" part, please note we meant pencil works even better on writing than normal pen. However, when compared with the erasable pens, the erasable pens are much easier to erase the text than pencil with the rubber. Sorry about the confusion. Thank you. Henry

Thank you WillofSilence for your feedback. The last promotion was an addition to the previous Facebook one. Please do not worry. We will be running more events and campaigns, including sharing happiness with us, when you receive our RockBook rewards. We are prepared to provide best offers for our KickStarter Campaign backers. Please keep posted by signing to our email. We will enter your emails as part of our email subscription. Please let us know if you do not wish to receive any emails from us. Please make sure you add our email address, so it won't be grouped as promotional or spam emails. We are getting backerkit ready, and hopefully we can launch backerkit within 24 hrs after campaign finishes. Please give us some time to figure out how to work with backerkit. Thank you very much for your support! Henry

Review from Kickstarter
Hi, I wanted to ask about the different pens.
Is there a difference in the quality of the imStone vs. FriXion pens when writing with? Or perhaps with the erasing quality?
You also mentioned that the FriXion pen is best cleaned with a wet towel. Is erasing with friction, or erasing a pencil with an eraser not as good? Because you mention to use a pencil for "better results".
Thanks

Is the last promotion compatible with the previous Facebook one? If I send an email to three friends of mine could I receive an extra one so in the end I end up receiving 3 (default + 2 extra because of the 2 promos) ?

Review from Kickstarter
Thank you Ashlene, this is a great question! Thank you for the opportunity to explain this in detail. paperontherocks is a very good brand! ^_^ The stone paper are very much similar, but we are all into different designs with the different stone paper grades, so our general public can choose from the different options to meet their needs. If you have experienced the different brands of stone paper, you will find that we differ, not just by the cover design. We all have our own different unique features. It's like coffee from different territories and which taste you like best. We do hope to be able to cooperate with all great brands of stone paper, and make all the different options available to us know. We can combine many of our resources and do so much more. We are striving towards this goal. RockBook will be the start of many amazing items that we are going to offer soon. You will find that stone paper is not only for notebooks! In this RockBook (Flexible Cover) collection, you will find us different in some of the areas below (compared to other stone paper brands):
1. We are the first ever rounded spine premium stone paper notebook.
2. We have chosen a lighter grade of stone paper to maximize the number of pages in our book and keep the weight similar to the normal pulp paper notebook.
3. Our inner pages are split into ruled, dotted and blank for versatility in different applications (note taking, drawing etc).
4. We have a very special effect that allows you to feel the marble grains on our RockBook. (For this its very hard to show via photo or video, we can only tell by touching). Our goal is to see all our stone paper fans enjoying the different applications and options of stone notebooks. Unlike some other "stone paper" companies, that you want to becareful of,
- we use the most proportion of stone powder (we have upto 80% of stone powder in our paper).
- we use non toxic polymer Due to use of the balance proportion of our material, we will:
1. Make stone much lighter
2. Able to inhouse recycle and reuse all our material
3. Create a durable material can be reused over again and agin.
4. Most importantly, we can reduce (eliminate) almost all the wastes in pulp paper production process. We can say that we are actually not paper, but a new material that has properties of paper (folding, tearing) and polymer (waterproof). We are not the only solution, but balancing out complete life cycle, we definitely won't be the worst choice, and that's also why we were awarded KiWA, cradle to cradle and related certifications. We keep trying to improve and bring more and more sustainable options to our world. ^_^ Hope the above helps? Thank you.

Thank you Tina for your support and comment. We are introducing the backerkit at the end of the campaign, so you can addon other items to your pledge. In this case, if you can, please first select the pledge you that will cover most of your required items and then select the addons after the campaign. To my understanding, indeed one account can only make one pledge. Thank you. Henry

Review from Kickstarter
Thank you Kaylen, that's a great question! Totally understand the missing pages. I have quite a few on mine from testing and sharing stone pages with friends. Our RedDot RockBook does not have the perforated pages, but its glue and stitched binding, so its binding is not as good (not lay as flat) as the Black/White Marble RockBooks. From my experience using the Black/White Marble RockBooks, I have't had the experience in accidentally ripping or slightly tear the perforated. This is because stone paper has some flexibility, and our perforated lines are actually almost invisible, so the page actually stays on the book very well, but can tear easily when needed to. It took us a long way to develop the invisible perforated line, we surveyed quite a few experts and performed many tests and different knife sets, in the end need to custom the knife, just to get the balance of strength and easy tear for our RockBook. If you feel not comfortable, I recommend you to try the passport RockBook that comes with the RockBook rewards, which is also perforated to the same standard as the A6 and A5 RockBooks. We will also put forward this as suggestion to our team, so we can design some books without the perforation. Thank you for the idea! Henry

Is there an option for the notebooks to not have perforated pages? I hate when notebooks are missing pages, and I would hate to accidentally rip out a page ( or slightly tear it at the perforated site).

Review from Kickstarter
Thank you Christie for your comment. To select the covers, we have a survey at the end of the campaign. So straight after the campaign, a survey will be sent out for filling in the details. We will be working with backerkit for post campaign, so all backers have the opportunity to add on specific items, i.e., more pens or more books etc. We will be following everyone's progress post campaign, and make sure we can spec out everyone's needs, so we can finalize the production, ship to US and Europe, then make the deliveries. Thank you for watching out. If you have any more question, please let us know. Thank you.

Review from Kickstarter
Thank you Yiechow for your comment, great question! With current RockBook formula, although 70% stone powder content, we can't make it fireproof yet. There is a formula that we can use to improve fire-resistance of stone paper. It is a different application, material and process engineering. We have successfully developed this spec, but it needs substantial volume to make it economic sense. So, once we have mass production factory set up, the factory can make this fireproof grade material. Above is quick update about our fireproof progress. Thank you.

Dear creators, I have seen the notebook can be burned right? But is there a way to make the notebook can NOT be destroyed by fire? Since it made by stone, I assume.

Thank you Hali for your question. There are 2 options. Option 1. You can add that to the pledge. For example 82 dollar pledge, you can add 12 (passport RockBook and Pen) to make the pledge 94. Option 2. Alternatively, you will be able to do this at the end of the campaign, when we run backerkit, you can add the add-ons (12 usd, 13 usd and other options) at the end. Before option 2 wasn't available, but it is available now. So, options 2 will bring more flexibility to what you would like to add, at the end of the campaign. Thank you. Henry

Review from Kickstarter
Thank you Paul, that's a very good question. Love this chance to explain to all our backers. Its a 16~28 year story, but I will try to make the story short. I am Henry, representing Taiwan Lung Meng Technology (TLMT) in Taiwan. We worked on stone paper since 1990, and established TLMT in 1998 to take stone paper to mass production, which took us another 10 years. We have stone paper invention patent in over 40 countries. ToLife is responsible for advertising and moving our RockBook (made in Taiwan) to Jeff (US) to distribute. We have suppliers from China too, but we make RockBook from Taiwan, because Taiwan has the best balance for quality and cost. Costs more than China, less than Western countries, but at a Super quality. Jeff (Norwalk CA) is our long time supporter and partner in stone paper. He is the founder of ViaStone and have been supplying stone paper to US in as early as 2002. We could have not made to where we are now without Jeff's help. We have been doing B2B (Business to Business) ever since stone paper has started, but we feel we can do sooo much more with B2C (Business to Consumer). So, we got together and on the way we are creating THE COLLECTION for imSTONE, RockBook - The Strongest Book Ever, the icon for stone paper notebooks. We have a few more partners, including designers, manufacturers and other experts in the team, working with us behind the scenes, so that we can do trials and make samples with the lightest stone paper grade (same weight as our text book paper), to ensure a standard weight book with outstanding quality and then launch the imSTONE RockBooks on KickStarter. Our FlexiCover RockBook is the world's first rounded spine on stone paper. This only possible with our lightest stone paper grade, as with our standard stone paper, the book with become too heavy with the 288 pages. Even with 2 decades of experience on stone paper, it took us the past 2 years to make our lightest stone paper today! All 3 of us with help of hundreds are involved in the design of the RockBook from the word go. I volunteered to maintain the KickStarter page, so you will see me doing most of communication. When I am away on business travels, I will need help, and would have ToLife, Jeff and friends to assist. ToLife mainly covers for overseeing production and advertising. Jeff covers the logistics. All 3 of us cover for each other. Unlike the huge paper makers, we are not a big corporation and with limited budget and want to find friends who appreciate RockBook as much as we do. We spent a lot of time, 20 years (since 1998), to take stone paper from an idea to reality. We also spent a lot of money (designing and making large stone paper machines) on the way. We invested 17 years of RD (we have about 100 colleagues, most of them are all engineers), before we were able to have mass production machines to make our stone paper today. Along the way, we also worked out all the difficulties with our supplier's experiments, which need their expertise and resources to resolve different unforeseen problems, and then finally create The Strongest Book Ever (in material technology, binding durability, and printing technology). If you have a chance to see our RockBook cover, feel the cover's marble grains (Its different to the gloss on our imSTONE). Not too many printers in the World can do what we have done on our cover. So the above is quick story in a nutshell over stone paper's 28 years of history. Thank you. Wish everyone a fantastic day!

Review from Kickstarter
Thank you Kaylen for your message. Yes we are new to backerkit too! It can be accessed after the KickStarter is done when we are surveying everyone for the exact choice of color. That's when we can choose to buy more individual items at Super Prices too! As mentioned we have reached our goal, and we will give back to the backers who has supported us in this campaign. So once we get more exact numbers in the different books, we can work out the savings in production, marketing, shipping and related expenses, and provide the best price on the units. So sharing our campaign and having more supporters will down our costs and we will pass those savings on at post campaign. Wish you a fantastic weekend!
