Here, let me just show you:
I was out of town when these arrived, so Hannah went over and looked at them for me. I'm very excited about it and am going over today to inspect them.
While I was out of town, these decal proofs arrived, too!
I've tested a couple of them. It seems like, after 3 or 4 back-and-forths about printing white (which I knew was complicated, but these decals are extra complicated), we finally got it right. I'm cutting some out and placing them to make sure the colors and opacities look correct. So far, it's very promising. I expect to approve this proof by the end of today. Printing decals could take two weeks, but then they'll show up and Topatoco will do its magic.
This means some very exciting things:
- All backers who are getting just a T shirt and at least one book, but no decals, will have their stuff shipped just as soon as we can paw through the ever-evolving Kickstarter surveys. I'd hope that would be before the end of the week.
- Backers who are getting decals, whether or not they're getting a T shirt, will get their rewards as soon as decals are in. This includes everyone who's getting a Soren Custom and Soren Special Edition.
That leaves my custom backers. Custom Company Commanders, I'm very happy to say that it's just about time to get back to designing stuff for you guys. Once the rest of the stuff is safely out of my hands, we can all get back to designing your custom companies. There are few enough that I can send out your books and decals once they're in, and then the custom companies will go out as we finish them.
I'm not going to hold back the pre-orders behind those custom companies because it relies on a bunch of back-and-forth between me and those backers, so if anyone asks, regular shipping should be starting as soon as those decals are going out the door.
This is all very exciting for me. I hope it's as exciting for you.
