What a great start! You guys are so cool. We're almost 1/3 of the way to our goal in our first day!
We have almost 30 backers across 5 countries. This will let us plant 3 trees with the National Forest Foundation.
I may or may not have danced around my living room periodically stopping to refresh the kickstarter page for the bulk of the day yesterday...
Planning the party
Since it looks pretty promising that we will hit our goal, I'll go ahead and announce how we plan to celebrate. We'll be releasing a fountain pen! I'll make facebook and twitter posts right before it goes live, so keep your ears peeled. The first few will be at a big discount to thank everyone, and there will be ways to add it to your existing donation. We have a couple more designs we're finishing up prototypes for and we'll release them as we hit other project milestones.
In case you are wondering what the packaging looks like, here's a preview, just got the proofs back from our vendor. It's triangle-shaped and looks a bit like an envelope. The closure is magnetic and there is plenty of room for an insert describing the woods.
