Off to Manufacture-land!
Dear Insane Children,
Good news this morning! We now have in hand the final digital assets for the book and DVD (BluRay) manufacturing process! These files are now being sent to the factories where discs and books will be produced in bulk. I've been told the manufacture process for both books and discs should be around 20 days. But that timer won't start until I get back (and approve) the samples we've just asked them to make.
Since we've already made samples based on earlier (work in progress) files, I expect we'll be able to give the approval for mass production sometime next week.
Looks like we're going to box and label everything for shipping here at the Spicy Horse office in Shanghai. From here we'll send packages in bulk to a shipping distribution center. Depending on where in the world you're located, shipping times can be anywhere from 5~15 days.
So, adding up time to manufacture (20 days from next week), time to package everything (mid September?), and shipping time... Some of you could be seeing physical items around end of September to early October? Fingers crossed on that! :)
And once the physical items start going out, we can decide on when/how to distribute the digital items.
Thank you, everyone, for your continued support and patience while we bring the Otherlands campaign nearer to completion!
