Dear Backers: Slight Shipping Delay, We're Sorry!
We had a bit of bad news from MagCloud. The date on the cover of the magazine wasn't printing correctly. It had a yellowish glow that was slightly offset from the text. (You can see it in the image below.)
We're working on getting it fixed and expect to have that done by today or tomorrow, but in the meantime we've stopped production. It means that your shipment is going to be delayed by a few days, and we're sorry about that!
Longshot is an inherently flawed product. You don't make a magazine in 48 hours without making a few mistakes. Having said that, we want it to be the best that it can, and we hope you'll bear with us while we get this straightened out. I'll post another update when the magazines begin shipping.
