MFØ T shirts are in, as well as decal proofs!

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.

      I'm hoping these will be flying by the beginning of next week.

      Just curious if my order had been shipped out now that the shirts are in.

      Tev, they will be downloadable, though you almost certainly can't print white. Even the non-white designs will be a little weaker. Eventually, though, I'll sell off the overruns. It's not the top priority, but I'd love to see them get use!

      Rob, I want you to have your book!

      This is great news. I want my book! :-)

      For those of us that didn't get stickers, will they be available for purchase, or downloadable so we can print them ourselves?

      John, your book can go out, now that your T is here! You're the specific target for this update.

      Ringmaster, it's two things. One is that the mobile frame represented there is the Hi-Leg, a frame popular among Free Colony companies (and gangs, and unions, and autonomous collectives) for being so badly designed, everyone knows how to fix it. The quote is from Americans fighting on the side of the Republicans in the Spanish Civil War who painted it on the side of their aircraft. It was also made popular by Woodie Guthrie, who had it written on his guitar, as you can see here: http://www.youtube.com/watch…

      Heh, love the rickety look of the mech ^_^

      The books were mailed out right? I've yet to get mine.

      I suppose I should have asked this long ago, and I am not opposed to slaughtering fascists, but I really don't understand what this t-shirt is about. I assume this is an in-joke? Not even knowing about the prior version/incarnations of this game before the kickstarter began, I feel left out of a lot.
