Surveys and More
I'm back from vacation in Montana. Here's an update:
Approach to Getting Your Color and Size
I am about to send you the backer survey. Here's how it will work:
- The Survey - The survey will gather your address information, among other bits of information.
- Measuring Your Size - I will use your address to mail you a paper tape measure, and at the same time publish an instructional video of how to measure yourself correctly.
- Final Order - As we get closer to shipping, you will place your final order. This is when I will learn your size and actual color choice. I'll also enable you to make any changes to your address and add extra cost for international shipping.
- Asking About Your Color Choice Early - In the survey, I am going to ask for your COLOR CHOICE for FORECASTING purposes only. I'll use this to help determine the color breakdown for ordering additional materials. Your decision doesn't have to be spot-on, and your real choice will occur later, in the final order process.
** Please note: Kickstarter makes every question I ask you required. Sorry about that.
Feel free to send me any questions you have on this approach.
Here is another representation of the colors:
I decided to take a two-pronged approach on the pocketing:
We are going to continue to work on a pocketing material that is at least 50% recycled polyester. But, the leadtime is very long, and it's not ready yet.
So in the meantime, I will use a 100% nylon pocketing, including for all of your pairs. It comes in white, and will be dyed with a blue background in the printing process. (I don't like white pockets).
Both the main label and size label will be white, mostly to keep consistency with the other uses of the Bluff Works logo.
Below is the kind of mockup the design guys at Sandstrom Partners do for me. I love it when they do this kind of thing, because it helps me to visualize it so much better.
This week, I funded:
Do Move Say - A fun looking party / mass participation game by an entertaining guy. He's only got 4 days left, and I hope he makes it! http://kck.st/OizygT
Being in Montana was great, and I plan to do a fun update about everything I did in my Bluffs for you soon!
Sorry for the slow response to your messages while I was away.
