4-Color Printing and Bookmarks for Signed Copies!

We're currently at just over $30,000 pledged with one week left in the campaign, and this has allowed us to do something that we never would have considered before Kickstarter.  Because we'll be needing to print a lot more copies than anticipated, the cost of printing has gone down per unit, and we decided we should take the cost savings and put it right back into the project!  So, we're going to print the entire book using a 4-color process, to give you richer blacks and subtle greytones, while also allowing for full-color, full-bleed extra materials in the back.  This includes "Phantoms" in color and the covers for the original mini-series in color.  It will also be sewn perfect bound for extra durability.  That makes this version of Daisy Kutter a DELUXE EDITION when compared to previous printings (smaller, adhesive-only binding, 1-color) and that's all thanks to you.

SIGNED COPY BACKER BONUS! (Details below)

On top of this, we are now going to offer everyone who pledged for a signed/sketched copy of the book another cool bonus!  Every signed copy backer will receive a Daisy Kutter bookmark, featured above. 

So, for the $25 pledge (+5 Canada, +10 International), you will receive the book with a small drawing of Daisy, sketched & signed by Kazu on the first interior page, a Daisy bookmark, and a chance to win one of 6 pieces of original art.  Plus, if the total pledged amount goes higher, more original art prizes will be thrown into the mix.  This is for signed copy backers only, so I encourage you to up your pledge and enter the fun if you haven't already!

Thanks again, everyone!  And please let people know that this reprint drive ends in less than a week!

      Nice. One of the best upgrades I have seen on Kickstarter.

      Amazing news! I was on the fence about backing this project but after the possibility of high quality printing was announced a few days ago I just had to chip in. Congrats on the success, and I can't wait for my signed copy to arrive; the bookmark is also a pretty clever bonus, thanks!

      Woohoo!! Thankyouthankyouloveyou.... :'D Love the amulet series! Waiting on Book 5 this Fall.
      All the best Mr. Kibuishi! You will always have my support.

      Daisy Kutter 2 is definitely on the horizon. We will figure out our production schedule for the next several years and see where we can fit this project in. I'd like to go 100% on it, so that means we will need to wait until Amulet #8 (end of Amulet series 1) is complete.

      Awesome! More goodies!! Thanks, Mr. Kibuishi. Here's hoping for Daisy Cutter 2, hehe..
