A quick update to let you know we’re making good progress on your custom cards!
Text editing is complete for all $150 and above backers. The $150 and $300 levels represented a huge editing project, and we took on the challenge! While there are many single cards in the $75 level, the $150 and $300 levels each have 4 dog cards and 12 custom hooman cards per sheet (around 1,200 dogs + 3,600 hoomans total), so we wanted to tackle that work first!
Here’s a few things we pay special attention to when editing your cards:
Sometimes quotations or tildes don’t translate well from the spreadsheet to InDesign. We keep an eye out for these and work to fix them on the cards before they go to print!
InDesign does a pretty good job finding overset text, but we still go through each of these cards personally to be sure they look great and that the text flows well. That means we resize or rearrange text that might be flowing off of the card, because of too many words or characters!
And here’s what one of those full spreads looks like, sans images:
We’re excited to finish the text layout for all single dog cards and to move on to the last three steps of this process: matching your pup’s images with their cards, sending these off to the printer, and sending them off to you!
We’ll update again when all $75’s are complete and when we’ve started placing your pup’s images in their templates! We anticipate these will be off to the printer in about two weeks.
Until then, here’s a yip yip hooray for nearing the finish line and we hope you’re enjoying spring! Here’s some of your very good doggos enjoying the outdoors:
