Update #12

Press Proofs

8 comments

Hello my friends,

We received press proofs from the printer today. Press proofs are the best proofs because they are exactly what the print will look like. It's the same ink, paper and printing process as the real thing. 

The sheets depicted below are 32-page signatures—16 faces on this side and 16 on the other. For the print run, these sheets will come off the press just so. It only takes 12 and a half of them make up the entire book. They're sent to the bindery in groups and folded, cut, bound and trimmed to create the book.

We're submitting our final corrections to the printer in the morning. After that, the wheels of industry turn for a few weeks and then the shipping begins!

Onward,
-Luke

      I'm so excited. I guess I should start wrapping up all other games.
