Wow. Well we made our goal, but if you haven't joined up- you still can.
The idea behind using Kickstarter to raise the funds for the This Is Hardcore Photobook was that we could and DID offer really cool fun stuff related to the Festival itself like posters, tickets etc.
So now what? We hit the goal of $15,000 but your support will definitely matter in a big way.
With a goal of $15,000 we were hoping after KickStarter and Amazon payment fees to have about $13,000 to pay for the layout/printing of the book as well as the printing/shipping of the Tshirts,prints and posters.
With your continued and additional support we can do alot to make the Book itself that much better of a product.
We're currently looking into adding more pages and pricing out to see if we can get a Hardcover on the book.
We're beyond grateful for the support so far, but don't stop spreading the word and getting people on board. We've got more books and plenty of items in the fundraiser for those still interested and the $ will definitely help us make the book something that we could never have dreamed it would become.
We'll keep you updated with a page count and if we can afford the hardcover edition of the book. Thank you to those who have supported and spread the word to those who haven't!!
