Kickstarter backers who are requesting a refund:

Kickstarter as a platform makes it clear that no refunds are required for any project from their platform. Kickstarter speaks in length about this here.

However, as a golden rule company, we offer a refund to our Kickstarter backers of 70% to reflect the 30% we spent on the fees and creation of our Kickstarter campaign. 

If your Origami arrives unbroken and you still want a refund.

OR 

If you request a refund while your Origami has been shipped :

You will need to pay to ship it back and there will be a $20USD restocking fee, and once your Origami is in transit back to us and you have notified us of such, we will issue you the 70%, minus the above deductions, refund for your Kickstarter pledge. 

We encourage you to sell or give your pledge away if you no longer want it!
