We're in the home stretch, folks! This past week we got the Adventurer, Apprentice, and Artisan packs shipped out. So, only two pledge levels left to ship!
The Noble Knight packs have been packed up and are scheduled for USPS pickup tomorrow. We are still working on the Floppy packs. Now that all the buttons are completed we can start packing those up. We hope to have all of the Floppy packs shipped out early next week.
++ We are still working on the Apprentice illustrations. Each artist has one more illustration to complete. Once those are done we will move on to the illustrations for the the Fairy Godmother packs. If you haven't sent in your photos for the Fairy Godmother illustrations, please be sure to do so soon!
++ Also, any pledge folks who filled out their survey after the pledge level already shipped, we will fill those at the same time as the Floppy packs.
Okay, so things are moving along! The buttons are almost all completed. Just a couple (hundred) more to make which is not bad when you consider we had to make 2076 buttons! As of last week's shipping update we had gotten out the following packs: Storyteller, Princess, Puppy Love, Strings & Things, Merchant, Prince, Strings & MORE Things, One Wish, 333 pack, Companions pack, and Fairy Godmother packs.
So here's where we are now.
All of the 196 Red String books were signed & sketched and shipped out with the Red String Special Packs today.
Floppy, Noble Knight, Adventurer, Apprentice, and Artisan packs will start being packed up this weekend and we hope to have them ready to ship by Monday or Tuesday.
++ The illustrations for the the Fairy Godmother packs and the Apprentice packs are being worked on and will be sent upon completion.
++ Also, any pledge folks who filled out their survey after the pledge level already shipped, we will fill those at the same time as all the other remaining packs.
We are trying to keep everyone as up to date on shipping progress as possible. The bookplates arrived and are all signed. Buttons are getting made at a furious pace (got my dad hard at work on those). Storyteller, Princess, Puppy Love, Strings & Things, and Merchant packs were all sent as of the last update. Since then this is what has happened.
