Hey everyone, just checking in to let you all know how things are going here. We’ve finally received the Hero Party softcover edition and postcards, but we still have to wait for the hardcover. The softcover edition came out very well and we’re sure you are going to be as please as we are with it. Posters will be finished around the first week of October and we can begin mailing rewards out, though some may take longer than others.
If you haven’t yet responded to the surveys we sent out, please take a minute to fill it out so that when we are ready to send everything there will be no further delays.
Team Hero Party
Hey everyone! We're growing close to the end of the project and with all of the support over the last few days, we've decided to lower the amount for the hardcover stretch goal to $6700. That means everybody who pledged $75 or more will receive BOTH the standard edition of Hero Party AND the special edition hardcover copy as well.
Our Kickstarter campaign ends in about 10 hours, and once that happens I will send out the surveys asking for information needed to deliver the rewards as soon as I can. This is especially important for anyone receiving a special thanks in the book, as we are planning to begin printing them this week!
Thank you all for all the support and for making this project go further than we'd ever imagined!
By request, we've decided to include the signed sketch for the $75 tier in all tiers above $75. So if you wanted to go for a higher tier, like posters or commissions, you will still get the signed sketch inside your copy of Hero Party 01!
And again, if you're looking for something specific that you don't see in any of the tiers, send us a message and we'll see what we can do. This is our first Kickstarter project, and we're still getting used to things, so thanks for sticking with us through it all!
With just over 5 days to go, we'd like to update you on the status of the project. So far we're on schedule, we're aiming to have the project finished and ready to print shortly after the campaign ends. With that in mind, all backers in a tier including a special thanks printed in the book please be ready to respond somewhat quickly after the campaign ends Tuesday night so we have time to get your names in the book and set up all the files for the printer. If all goes according to plan, we should be having the books printed about a week later and can start mailing out everything by the end of the month!
New Tiers and Corrections
Any backers in a tier above $100 will receive the $100 tier rewards as well. Since the $100 tier was added after the project began, I was unable to edit all of the tiers that already had pledges, but all pledges over $100 will receive both posters as well. Sorry for the confusion!
We've also added in a new tier for $250. For this tier, you will receive the $100 tier, plus a signed commission of any character of your choice, inked and colored with Copic marker on 11"x14" paper.
Currently we've reached the 1st tier of stretch goals, and are close to the second. With the first tier, everyone pledging $20 or more will be receiving a set of 3 character bookmarks along with the rest of their rewards. We're also very close to the next tier, mini-print sets! Check out update 2 if you need a reminder about what the stretch rewards are.
Below we've attached a few pages with screen tones to give you an idea of how things are coming along. Thanks for all the support, we hope you enjoy it!
