MAN vs. GEORGE: Modern designs with a flipside surprise!
by Ryan &Tilney Fitzpatrick, MAN vs. GEORGE
Post-Stationery Show Check-In
Just a quick note to let you know that thanks to your generous help, we rocked the National Stationery Show! We got back late Thursday night (5/24) and spent all weekend printing, scoring, cutting, and packaging two big wholesale orders that needed to get out ASAP. So now, boxes of our cards are now on their way to Toronto and San Francisco! A week after each new order ships out, we will be adding those shops to our Retailer Map. We are so excited to add new pins to the map!
We have many more orders to fill between now and March 2013 (these buyers like to plan ahead!), but we haven't forgotten about your Kickstarter backer rewards!!!
JUNE: ...We will design and print the limited-edition mini-print (or full-size print) that is going out to most of you ($5 level and up). As soon as it is ready to go, we will be reaching out to each of you for your mailing address.
...Those of you at the $10-30 levels also get to select any card from our collection. We will send you a link to our wholesale catalog or online shop for you to select your card. We will ask for your selection when we ask for your mailing address.
JULY: ...For those of you at the $50-55 level, we will assemble your "Be Prepared" packs of 10 of our best-selling cards. When those are ready to ship in July, we will ask for your mailing address.
...For people at the $100 level ("Your Idea on a Card"), we will be touching base with you very soon (early June), to start talking about your requests. In July we will have your designs ready to ship!
AUGUST: ...It's ho-ho-holiday card time! For backers at the $200 level, we will contact you in August to have you select a holiday card design from our collection, and work with you on the custom message to be printed inside. We may be designing a few more holiday styles over the summer so we'll wait until August to ask for your selection.
...For our $500 level backer, we'll be in touch about where you want those George-shaped cookies delivered!
We definitely have a lot of work ahead but we are excited about it. Launching our line at the National Stationery Show was a great experience -- we received wonderful feedback on our line of cards and prints, and had lots of fun meeting fellow paper lovers from around the world.
Thanks again for your support! We will be in touch again soon, but for now, we leave you with images of some of the cards that were our top sellers at the show...
