55K Stretch goals & other updates!
We met 55K the sticker stretch goal! THANK YOU everyone! Please take the time to read this update as it summarize all the add-ons and schedule,etc.
This would most likely be the final big update before the Kickstarter wraps up, I think I'm in way over my head with the extra work for the extra items (but I have a lot of fun creating little products and can't help myself!)
So starting today I'll be focusing 100% in the back with wrapping up the books layout and preparing for all the stretch-goals and add-ons items. (I'll still be keeping everyone updated and answering questions)
123 EVERYTHING SET Just for anyone new to Kickstarter and wants to save some headache with add-ons. I've created an EVERYTHING SET, which includes Vol. 1-3 and everything from this Kickstarter (excluding sketch/commissions,etc)
NEW STICKER SET B!
55k STRETCH GOAL - 1 FREE STICKER B for all (non-digital set) backers!
NEW ZODIAC MAGNET SET B
(As part of the 40K Stretch goal - Each backer (with shipping) will receive 1 RANDOM fridge magnet!)
Here're the final (most likely) list of add-ons available. If you're confused with how add on works, I've created a simple page explaining how to addon to the pledge.
- Slipcase (+$10)
- Miniprints (+$3 each)
- Sticker (+$3)
- Keychain set (+$8)
- Stickynote (+$3)
- Postcard Set (+$20)
- Zodiac Magnet (+$2 each or $22 for Set A or B or $42 for Both set)
(The keychain, stickynote, postcard set were some items that's currently in HJ-Store that I decided to make available at a discounted price and to also save shipping for anyone that's interested in bundling it together with the pledge)
*Please manually adjust your pledge total accordingly before the Kickstarter ends. To avoid delay, make sure the total is correct. I know that it's a bit complicated so if you do make a mistake , I'll be contacting everyone at the end while after organizing the surveys with methods to pay for the extra fee,etc.
65K+ UPCOMING STRETCH GOALS
As much as I'd like the end the Kickstarter with a big bang (e.g. FREE CAR FOR EVERYONE!) For the final stretch goal(s) if we make it, I'll be squeeze every drop of money towards back end polishing work. Every little things such as silver foil logo,etc has extra cost, and since I always have an ambition to make each product the best that I can. Things I'll be squeezing for are:
- Creating case for prints
- Making Hologram version of Love Pearl and/or Arctic Warmth
- Better paper for slipcase,etc
- Little extra things such as packaging,etc.
DATES & SCHEDULE *PLEASE READ*
Just want to keep everyone updated with the current schedule of things. Because of the slipcase, there might be a slight delay from the original schedule and I hope everyone would understand.
Feb 16: Surveys will be sent out to collect credit names, shipping address & Add-on
Feb 21: Deadline to submit survey for credit names to be printed in books
Feb 21 - 24: Wrapping up the book credit / layout and sending it to the printers to start production
Mid Mar: Slipcase production (To match the size, it'd have to be created after the book is finished)
Late Mar: Shipping will begin
I'm aiming to ship everything out within 1-2 weeks. With standard shipping, i will take everywhere from 2-5 weeks to arrive. So you should be expecting your package to arrive anytime between Mid April - Late May.
You can be sure that Kate and I will do our best to move quickly, but I hope that everyone would understand we'd rather do everything properly and not rush things.
*If you'd like to upgrade for Express shipping, I'll be sending an update regarding the possibility of upgrading, once it is ready to be shipped so that I can calculate the shipping cost for anyone wishing to upgrade.
Just thought to throw in something funny while surfing online, as I've mentioned before the Kickstarter is in CAD and it's at an all time low. I actually didn't notice that the massive dropped happened RIGHT after I launched the Kickstarter...
Thanks to everyone's support, I'm pretty sure I got this covered so don't have to worry! but I just wanted to post the graph for a small laugh haha...
Hopefully I didn't miss anything, you can leave your question/comment below and I'll try my best to answer everyone (or backers can help each other too!)
You can also message me via Kickstarter if you have any questions or custom add-on questions, etc.
