Learn how Brad Talton fulfilled 22 Kickstarter campaigns by partnering with Fulfillrite.

The Company

Level 99 is a board game publishing company owned and operated by Brad Talton. Some of their more popular games include BattleCON, Pixel Tactics, Millennium Blades, Argent: the Consortium, and Empyreal: Spells & Steam. Once launched on Kickstarter, the games are also available to buy online as well as at select retail outlets.

The Challenge

Brad has been using Kickstarter since its early days, all the way back in 2011. He has built his business from the ground up and has raised $3,185,142 through 22 campaigns reaching over 39,000 backers.

Up until 2015, Brad was shipping his Kickstarter campaigns out of his garage. He would gather some friends together, order some pizzas, and get everything shipped out. It was still very time-consuming and expensive, although he and his friends had a good time.

The Solution

Brad reached out to Fulfillrite for help shipping his 2015 Kickstarter campaign, Pixel Tactics Deluxe. He knew that he wasn’t going to be able to scale his business by shipping from his garage and relying on temp work forever!

Our sales team helped him to streamline his operations and save money on postage. This freed up David to spend his time growing the business and doing creative work. No longer did he have to worry about in-house fulfillment.

The Results

In the end, Fulfillrite took care of order fulfillment on behalf of Brad. This simplified his operations and allowed him to spend his newfound time growing the business and doing creative work. Level 99 is now a full-time job for Brad as well as five others, and has a comfortable office in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Since he started working with Fulfillrite, Brad has seen continued success on Kickstarter, with every single campaign since 2015 funding successfully and often very quickly. Fulfillrite has shipped at least 37,000 packages on Brad’s behalf as of 2021, and we expect that figure to keep climbing!

I’ve been very impressed with our fulfillment service in New Jersey, Fulfillrite. They’ve managed to ship out our past three campaigns (Pixel Tactics Deluxe, Millennium Blades, and EXCEED) without any incident in the USA.
