Thank you all for helping us reach our first stretch goal! At $30k you have unlocked a Kickstarter exclusive wallpaper for ALL Backers. We'll be talking with Walter and Rocio to figure out exactly WHAT the wallpaper will be (they're both mid-Spinny-chapter, but as soon as they are done we'll get working on that!) Special thanks to a certain backer who bumped up his pledge the exact amount needed yesterday... you did not go unnoticed!
Sooo... what next? Well, at $40k all backers at the $50 and up pledge level will receive a signed 8" x 10" photo print of the "We Can Do It" pin-up! We have made the call to switch this to an 8" x 10" print so that it will better fit into frames and so that there is less risk of shipping damage since we'll be able to slip this size into the book without the edges getting crinkled.
At $50k ALL OLDER BOOKS (Volumes 1 AND 2) will be automatically upgraded to the larger print size. This means all backers who have pledged for copies of these books will receive them with NO change in tier pricing. Each of these books will have a never-before-printed pin-up gallery in FULL SHINY COLOR (in the words of the great Walter Gomez). We printed a small run of Volumes 1 and 2 with our local printer to test out the print quality, weight of the books and printing time... and guys, they are so gorgeous. We have a convention this weekend, so as soon as we get a chance I'll upgrade photos... but SO gorgeous. The black and white pages are deeper, darker and more detailed and the color pin-ups are stunning. So PLEASE share the word so we can make this a permanent upgrade!!!
At $60k all books will be upgraded from the 80 lb. glossy paper to a heavier, thicker 100 lb. glossy paper. This means a sturdier, more durable book. So, HURRAH for stretch goal number 1! Onward and upward!
