About this project
Blindsprings is a comic about magic, lost princesses, secret societies, and ancient spirits long forgotten...
A lost princess named Tamaura survives a revolution by making a deal with the Spirits of the forest. Pledged to them for three hundred years, the princess is about to fulfill her pact when a young man finds her and decides for himself that she is meant to be saved, whether she likes it or not. His "rescue" pulls Tamaura out of her timeless sanctuary and into a world that advanced hundreds of years without her...where a civil war is brewing over the same magic that flows through her veins.
Help us release a print edition of the first volume of the Blindsprings webcomic: a whopping 240+ page tome!
Kadi Fedoruk and Hiveworks are teaming up to print Volume 1 of Blindsprings - first as a softcover graphic novel, but also as a limited edition hardcover if we reach our Stretch Goals. Volume 1 will collect the first five chapters of the webcomic available online, which is over two years of content!
In addition, in this celebration of all things Blindsprings, we've prepared specialty rewards and one-of-a-kind items for the fans. See tier details below and get yourself something fun. :)
Be sure to check out the amazing guest artists who contributed special art for the rewards in this Kickstarter!
The primary production costs of this Kickstarter will go toward printing this massive book and shipping copies out to pledgers around the world. Hiveworks will be handling the administration for this project to make sure everything runs smoothly and rewards go out in a timely fashion.
Blindspring's beautiful Volume 1 will be printed with Print Ninja.
Thank you for such an incredible response! More Stretch Goals have been added below to make this book and your reward even better than before!
NOTE: The $60 "Wayfarer Team-up Tier" is not included in the $50+ tier bonuses listed below (since it's a double-packaging of a lower tier).
Risks and challenges
This Kickstarter is backed by Hiveworks Comics, a creator-owned publishing house and studio that supports hundreds of webcomics. After many successful Kickstarters and years of general webcomic-and-print management, we're confident that they'll see this Kickstarter through in a professional manner. They'll keep pledgers abreast of any problems or delays, and can be contacted directly through this Kickstarter's comments and messaging.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
A few reasons:
1.) This is a big book (large trim size, 240+ pages) and many will get a hardcover upgrade if we hit that Stretch Goal, so it's expensive to ship no matter what!
2.) The USPS had a price increase this year.
3.) Due to the volume of books going out, Kadi is unable to ship them all herself and had to hire some help, which adds a dollar or two per package.
Kadi is in Canada but we'll be shipping from the USA, which actually DECREASED shipping costs a lot! We've done everything we can to keep the shipping cost reasonable...so we're sorry that we can't avoid it, but we think receiving this big, beautiful book on your doorstep will make it worth it. :)
The $60 tier might be what you're looking for, BUT if you wanted to buy a higher tier and get an extra book in your package:
You can add $35 (shipping to USA) or $40 (shipping anywhere else) to ANY tier to get a second copy of the book + postcards added to your package. That book will also be eligible for the hardcover upgrade if we hit $45K. We'll ask you about it in the post-Kickstarter survey, so just remember to answer that question when it comes up!
