Happy New Year! Poster Shipping Update

Posted by Jessica Edwards (Creator)

Kickstarter Backers,

Happy New Years! What a year it has been. We wanted to thank you one final time for your support in 2017.

The last batch of Rolf Harder’s poster re-issues were shipped out this week (except for those of you who asked for us to hold onto them until after the holidays). The t-shirts, pins and letterpress cards will begin shipping in early Jan 2018. For anyone interested in a Burton Kramer letterpress card, we have a few extras available for purchase here:

We will begin releasing more info about the film on our social accounts as we begin to ramp up to our Spring 2018 release. You can follow along here:


Below is a short video for our backers documenting the transformation of Greg’s apartment into a Rolf Harder poster shipping facility :)

 All the best for 2018!

      Do you guys have a ship date for the film's poster and also a release date for the movie?

      HI Joel,

      Your letterpress card went out this week. Let us know if you don't receive it within the next two weeks.

      Hi Jessica and team!
      I am just wondering status on posters and other bits? I remember that some things were mailed out, but I haven't received anything yet. I am in the Netherlands and my local postal workers are a bit... wavering in their professionalism.

      Hi @JulieHaugh the pins will be available in the coming months. We'll definitely update you when they're online. And as for a release plan, our KS backers will be the first to know. But late Spring 2018 is our goal. Sometime in May/June. Stay tuned!

      There were pins? I could have paid money for pins?!?

      Take my money! I want some pins!

      More seriously, I'm still planning to be at whatever showing may happen in Ontario (or elsewhere). Having a clue as to when and where would be great.

      @DennisMichael movie posters will be shipped early next week. The movie will be available in the Spring. Thank you!

      @ErickMarshall @JohnKruspe We had a customs delay with the pins. We're supposed to receive them this week. As soon as they are delivered we'll post an update. Thank you so much!

      Hi Jessica, Do you have any news concerning the pins? Thanks

      Update on movie and movie poster?

      @SaraLeydon Hi Sara! Just emailed you as well, but the quick answer is we're waiting on the pictogram pins to arrive. We should have those later next week. And as soon as we do, we'll ship the bundles! Thanks so much!
