Update #3

$5K in 5 Days - Thank you Backers!

Dear Backers,

First, if you are worried that you're getting too many Bound updates, rest assured this will be the last one for at least a week.  No one likes email overload.

Now, please accept our deepest gratitude for all of you placing pre-orders.  We have been excited about this idea for some time and it means a great deal to learn that other people are too.  Amazing to think this custom journal idea could actually happen!  It has been an adventure.

Here are some highlights:
  • Hit $5K in 5 days, putting us over 50% funded
  • Kickstarter put us on the home page as a featured project
  • We have been in the news here in the Durham area for our activities outside of Kickstarter (Triangle Biz Journal, Herald-Sun)
  • We introduced a US Senator to Bound in person with a prototype

What can you do now?
You are of course under no obligation to do anything beyond the support you have already provided, BUT if you are interested:

As always, we welcome any comments or suggestions you have about journal content and options.

Thank you,

The Bound Team
