Hi everyone, good news: the posters have been printed, and they have turned out beautifully! I picked them up from the printers today.

I did a print run of 350 copies, which is enough to provide the rewards to all backers of the Kickstarter campaign, and still have some left at the end. That way, anyone who missed the campaign won't have to miss out on the poster: I'll still have some inventory that I can send out.

Moreover, we also upgraded the paper quality. I had originally got a quote for 170gsm paper, but thanks to the success of the campaign I was able to change it to 250gsm silk paper. I am very happy with the result — it looks and feels great (significantly better than the prints that O'Reilly produced, in my not-so-humble opinion). I think you'll be very pleased with it too.

I will start packing the posters for shipment soon, so if you haven't yet submitted your shipping address through the Kickstarter questionnaire, please do so soon.

Hooray! :-D

Martin
