NEW Stretch Goals
Thanks for all your input on the stretch goals. I think the slipcase and the leather bookmark seem to be the most popular choices.
I talked to the printer and they are going to throw in the Spot U/V gloss with the order, so the softcovers and hardcovers will have spot gloss. Fancy!
The next step is to do a foil stamp on the hardcover beneath the dust jacket. Here's a mockup of what it could look like, though if we hit this goal, I think I'll do a few mockups and get a vote going.
To achieve foil stamping we only need to hit $22k. We are really close to that!
Next stretch goal to add another level of snazzy to the book is to add a fold-out page that would either be a map or a chart of bear moves. To get a fold-out page, I need to hit $25K.
Next, and more spendy, is the slipcase. I have come up with two potential mockups (for now):
There's plenty of time to come up with different designs for these. To achieve this stretch goal I'd need to hit 30k. These would be available ONLY to Kickstarter backers who bought the hardcover.
Custom leather bookmarks seem pretty expensive. If we get anywhere near 30K I'll start looking at prices.
So, if you want to see these customizations, please share this Kickstarter with anyone you think might be interested! Thanks for getting me this far. We have 20 more days to go!
