Wow!

I am totally blown away.  I had no idea whether this project would be successful at all, much less that it would have raised over a thousand dollars in less than a day!  I am humbled and inspired and really excited.

Thanks to everyone who has contributed so far, whether by pledging money or spreading the word.  I can't wait to get everyone their posters and hear feedback.  Thank you all so much.

I have several plans for the extra funding, especially if the pledges continue to roll in: 

  • I can now afford some classier shipping materials for each order
  • If there is enough extra cash and interest, I might be able to do a run of posters on higher-quality paper
  • I will probably put some of it towards the purchase of a copy of InDesign; I've been doing fine with Photoshop, but since the cheat-sheet is such a text-centric design, InDesign will allow me to keep designs clean and attractive while trying out crazier ideas.

Anything past those items will help give me the time to improve the design even more, and start working on other poster ideas, too.

This is so cool!

    Two copies of the cheat-sheet, plus your name in the credits listed in the corner of the cheat-sheet. The names will be printed pretty small to keep everything else clear, but they will be there! Includes high-res image from the $10 reward.

    5 copies of the cheat-sheet (BONUS!), plus a unique feedback opportunity. I'll solicit feedback from you about each revision of the poster, and carefully consider your advice as I move forward. Maybe I'm missing something, or the design could be improved by X and Y. There are no guarantees, here: I have strong feelings about the "right way" to make this poster, so I reserve the right to implement 0% of all offered advice. However, I do guarantee that I will listen to you in earnest before deciding what to do. Includes your name in the credits from the $50 reward, and high-res image from the $10 reward.

    5 copies of the poster, including the feedback opportunity described in the $100 reward, and one additional poster on special material (canvas, wall sticker, static window cling, or 14 pt. cardstock) with a personalized thank-you message on it, custom-tweaked to reflect any of your feedback that wasn't used in the final product (within reason). Includes your name in the credits from the $50 reward, and high-res image from the $10 reward.
