A BIG THANKS to all the backers!!!

Posted by Tim Tu (Creator)

Recently we’ve been selected as a “Project We Love” from the good people at Kickstarter! What a great compliment! We can't put into words how thankful we are now that we've reached our funding goal. We very much appreciate all the love letters, feedback and support we have received along the way. We still have a little more than 2 weeks left, let’s make the best of it!

We’re still working on the PRO Series video, but we just want to share this news with all of you guys first.

Unlock Fashion Template Pack

Originally, we wanted to unlock the fashion template at our 50k stretch goal~ But having seen most of you wanted the bundle, we’ve decided to go ahead and unlock it now. Hope you’ll like it! But please please still help us share our project so we can hit our minimum quantity to make this possible.


If you do want to add the Fashion Template Pack, just add it on top of your current pledge. Or just simply bump up your pledge level.

Many of you messaged us about adding additional notebooks. Here’s how you can do it:

You can manually enter the amount of notebooks you want by increasing your pledge quantity. If upping your pledge quantity, keep in mind that due to the weight of our notebooks, international backers might have to pay a little more for shipping.

For US Backers: 

We’re offering free shipping, so just manually enter the total amount of the pledges/notebooks you want by changing it under the “manage” button.

International Backers: 

Additional notebook = $8-10 additional shipping charges PRO = $12~15 additional shipping charges

Ex: David from Belgium pledged for SketchyNotebook Set I ($40+$15 shipping) and wants to add an additional SketchyNotebook S ($18+$10 shipping) . So the total will be $83 and David will then manually change the pledge amount to $83.

Once the campaign is over, we’ll be using a service called Backerkit. Backerkit will make it easier to manage at that point, so you won’t have to worry about it for now.

Prototype Review 

As a graphic designer myself, David Airey has always been a huge inspiration in my career. David is a well-known graphic designer and a book author. Last month we had the privilege to show him our early prototype and ask about his opinion. We’re still stoked that he made a post about SketchyNotebook on his personal blog. You can check it out here


Thank you so much David, if you’re reading this!

We’d ask you to share this great news with your friends and family!
