Peek inside the printing house + The first batch has arrived!
It’s scary to print. It’s super scary to print 176 pages of text and artwork that should be crisp and spot on!
Alas, we went ahead and sent the PDF along to our printing house Kandrup. The past two weeks they have been working in the heat, printing 23 pallets of sheets. It was amazing to see the process of offset printing where they meticulously adjust the huge machines to align the CMYK colors and achieve the best results. Having worked for so long with digital media, it’s fun to see a palpable analogue process. We tried to capture some of it for you guys to get the same feeling.
After a week of drying the pages and binding it in a soft touch lamination we received it yesterday (eeek!). And it looks a-w-e-s-o-m-e. There are mistakes, but we’re very happy with the result and believe you’ll be as well. It's lovely to hold and browse through!
We printed 1000 copies and got Kickstarter orders for around 700, so if you wanna make sure your friends and family get one, shop is here.
