Final Sheet Proofs Approved:
We received the final version of Sheet Proofs from the printer and signed off on them. A sheet proof is basically a paper version of all the game's components. This allowed us to make sure all colors and sizes were correct. It was the first time we were able to see everything printed out to scale and in full CMYK... and it was so cool we had two of them framed and put up in the house.
Advance Copy Shipped:
We just got word today that the first full production version is on it's way from China and should be in Indy for us to approve this week. This is the last step in the production approval process and we should be sending you pics/video of the manufacturing process as soon as we are able to sign off. In the meantime, the printer sent us these pictures of the Advance Copy as it came off the line.... We will be sure to share an unboxing video as soon as it gets here!
This is our first time producing anything overseas, and all our research tells us that it will be anything but predictable from a time-table perspective. Right now we have every indication that we should be able to ship out all of our Kickstarter Backer Rewards in the last week of May... But that is more in US Custom's hands than ours... What we can promise you is that we will keep you all updated, and let you know if we think there are any delays along the way...
