Most of our outstanding orders arrived on your doorsteps today. A few of you took to the intertubes to celebrate. Here are some of my favorites:

For those of you still waiting: thank you for your patience. I am circling back with a few folks who did not get shipping notifications, so please do not think I have forgotten you. In the coming weeks, I will be posting photos of the cards in the hands of educators who could not otherwise afford them. It should be inspiring fun, so keep an eye out.

The team (Dr Susan H. Rodger, Katy Dickinson and myself) behind this project is meeting this weekend to review how we have done so far and what next steps we would be interested in taking. We have at least one conference that will be selling decks in the early Spring as part of registration, which is beyond cool. 

Because of a print overrun, we ended up with more decks and more posters than Backers paid for, and so far have not had to use any to replace goods damaged while shipping. That means more materials to donate to educators and perhaps another round of applications for those decks. One idea we have heard is to sell the decks on an ongoing basis, still plowing all profit into free decks for educators for both ethical and licensure reasons. 

If you would buy another deck for $10, please like this post. However many likes this post has by Sunday afternoon will give us an idea of interest.

Thank you for your support. I am so glad those of you who got decks today were excited enough to share them online and thank you for your patience if you are waiting. Please message me with any questions or concerns.

      I gave my deck to one of my coworkers as a gift, so I should probably get another deck for me, at the very least. Also getting a couple decks for some of the CS diversity organizations I work with would be pretty great. :D

      I'm interested in a few more decks for local libraries youth projects as well as teachers/schools. My husband thought of a few more places I hadn't when I placed my original order. I'm also giving at least one deck and the poster to someone who works in tech.

      Anne: Totally. They're 24x36, which means you want a frame like this: http://www.amazon.com/24x36-Black-Picture-Frame-1-25/dp/B003Q2PQ2Q/ref=sr_1_1…

      As the granddaughter of an artist who spent more than one summer framing, matting, unframing, rematting, and swearing at art, I am a big fan of paying professionals at your local framing store. They can advise on colors and do all of the hard work. Let me know how it goes!

      Without fighting the poster itself to get measurements, can you tell me what the dimensions are so that I can go get a frame?

      I would buy another poster and deck if they were available. I expect more people to want them when they see mine, too. Putting the funds back for donations seems like it would meet the licensing requirements.

      I would love to buy a few decks as gifts for other educators and high school girls with whom I work!
