Stolen Sharpie Revolution Kickstarter update #25

3 likes

Greetings!

A couple of things:

  • This weekend I'll be in LA for the L.A. Zine Fest! It is free to attend so, if you are in Los Angeles, stop by and check out a bunch of rad stuff. I'll have extra copies of Stolen Sharpie Revolution if you need to pick some up and I'll have some of the rad Sharpie markers imprinted with the SSR logo too!
  • There are still a few folks that have not filled out the survey! Please fill out the survey if you would like to receive your rewards!
  • -There are still rewards sitting at the Portland Button Works shop. If you answered in the survey that you would like to pick your reward up in Portland, they are waiting for you. I have sent you each messages

Other stuff I thought I might throw in:

  • The Dates for the 2015 Portland Zine Symposium will be July 18-19 and table registration should open within a month!
  • Check out the StolenSharpieRevolution.org website for more zine fest and zine events
  • As always, Portland Button Works gets awesome new zines in all the time. Check it out!

Ok! All of the rewards for people that have answered the survey have gone out! If you have not answered the survey I have not shipped your reward! There are at least 17 of you that I'm waiting on a response. Today is the last day for domestic US orders to arrive before Christmas so if you get your address to me today, I can get your reward in the mail today!

If you would like to get a copy of Stolen Sharpie Revolution and did not back the Kickstarter you are in luck! I now have copies listed in my Etsy shop and on the Portland Button Works website. I even have listings for multiple copies if you were interested in getting some as gifts. The Etsy shop even has listings available to add a custom Sharpie marker to your order!

 I would love love love if you took photos of you with your copy of Stolen Sharpie Revolution and posted them to instagram, facebook, tumblr, or other places on the internet. I want to make sure they get to their new home safely! Feel free to tag with #stolensharpierevolution

Stolen Sharpie Revolution Kickstarter update #23 - Most books are in the mail

5 likes

Hello backers!

It's been a rough week! I got one box of books from the printer last weekend and all of those are in the mail this week, that's most of the kickstarter rewards. We are scheduled to get more books delivered tomorrow. I hope that works out so I can have all of these in the mail by Monday. The shipping labels I ordered 2 weeks ago still haven't shown up so once the labels we already had ran out I ended up unprofessionally taping labels to a bunch of the packages, sorry about that. The labels arrived today so that's good an will speed up the process.

I'd like to give a shout out to our postal carrier at the Portland Button Works shop! The first day of shipping out we put in a postal request and shipped out this pile of packages:

He picked that pile up at 11am and came back at 4:30 asking if we had anymore! I didn't get a photo of that pile, but it was pretty similar an he brought us some postal bins. Stoked!

The next day this is what went out:

And today this went out:

So, we are slowly getting there while running a button shop in a holiday rush. I hope to have the rest out by Monday! Thanks so much for your patience.

I've been getting some messages from people asking where they can get copies if they didn't back the kickstarter. I'm going to get through these rewards first and then I'll have them listed in the Portland Button Works Etsy shop and on the Portland Button Works website. I'll be starting promo stuff in the new year with sending them out for review, distro consideration and to shops. I have also been asked if people can get shirts or the custom Sharpie markers. The shirts will be available at events and I'll have the Sharpie markers available in the shops listed above.

And finally, I would love love love if you took photos of you with your copy of Stolen Sharpie Revolution and posted them to instagram, facebook, tumblr, or other places on the internet. I want to make sure they get to their new home safely! Feel free to tag with #stolensharpierevolution

Thanks again for your patience.

The first box of 120 books arrived today! THEY ARE SO BEAUTIFUL! I'll start shipping out rewards on Monday and more books will be shipped to me next week. I'm hoping to have all the rewards out by next weekend. Thanks so much or all your support and patience! I couldn't have done it without you!

Stolen Sharpie Revolution Kickstarter update #21 - The books ship next week!

3 likes

Hooray! We've got everything else for the rewards and I just got confirmation that the first batch of books will ship this week and I'll be able to have them in the mail next week! Thanks so much for your patience!

I'll be sending out the rest of the surveys this week so that you can update your address if you need to.

Unfortunately we won't be attending the East Bay Alternative Press fest this weekend. I was hoping I could get some of these books to Bay Area folks but we won't be there, sorry about that.

Thanks so much for your support!
