Update #1

Microfiber Cloth Artwork + Special Backer Bonus

3 comments

Hello Kickstarters, 

This is our first project update ever, and it comes with some great news. Before that though, we just wanted to say thank you again to all of our backers. You are all awesome, and we have been blown away by the support from all over the world. 

Now onto the news...

First, we just put up the artwork that will be voted on for the microfiber cloth reward at the bottom of our project page. These cloths are amazing quality and we are excited to see which artwork will be the favorite. 

Secondly, because we love our backers, we have decided to include a microfiber cloth with every pledge over $15. That means if you have pledged over $15 for any reward, you will be able to vote on which artwork you want on the cloth and we'll ship the winning cloth out to you along with your case. This is just another way of us saying thanks for believing in our vision!

We also made it onto a few sites yesterday:

twig creative

cult of mac

hardware lust

If you have a website or blog, we'd love for the project to get a shout out on it if you think it would fit. Also, if you know any writers for tech or design blogs, or any other related news outlets, feel free to send them a tip about our project!

We'll be sure to keep you updated on all of the progress being made. 

Thanks, and we'll talk to you soon.

      John Hendricks, I <3 NY is perfect. And yes I also did vote for the Foco project as Kevin say here... and it really have help the product in the end.

      I would suggest guys as there are only 12 days left and we are just at the 50% of your fund being raised to move the quotes of what people are saying about your products to the top of the page, before mostly anything. This is just basic marketing strategy to have the social proof up front. Most of the most successful projects use this tactic (Peddle, Elevation Dock, etc.). It shows that you product is popular and get traction. Your products are too awesome for not being made. We need to find the remaining 10K.

      I really like the I <3 NY image. I think to help with the voting, you may want to take a look at another iPad Kickstarter project:
