Awesome! $1650 in supporters! What a tremendous amount of inspiration to feed on! I'm sooooo sorry that this didn't happen. We always thought we would need one $300 supporter (a retailer) to make this happen and sure enough we missed it by just that amount. We had one nice lady contact us about supporting at that level - but we talked her out of it. No I'm not kidding. What she was looking for would not have helped her business so in good conscience I told her not to bid. Mark Twain has a saying, "If you never tell a lie - you never have to remember anything." Its a Mantra that I live by and I'm happy to say I told this nice lady the 'truth.'
We've learned a lot on this first kick starter attempt. Based on some feedback, If we had been able to print buttons, stickers, postcards , etc - it might have made it. If we had engaged in some local advertising earlier - it might have made it. If we could have offered more specific information on the types of shirts that we planned to use - it might have made it. If we had some better samples - it might have made it.
On that note - **** THANK YOU ***** so much for the support you've shown us!!! I'm very sorry to disappoint a few key supporters. Please feel free to drop me an email with the particular sign you wanted - if we get enough interest in a specific sign maybe we can do a solo run on that one design. I'm serious - let me know! See you all around Kickstarter. We'll be back!
