WOW! I can't believe we've made the goal--in less than a week! Every pledge maker and individual who has helped spread the word is so immensely appreciated. "Thank You" is an understatement. Putting this project together is going to be a ton of fun (and don't get me wrong, lots of work too). It means so much to me that we've all banded together and pooled resources to make it a reality.
Naturally, the big question now regards funds collected past the $5,600 goal. First, contributing to this campaign is still the perfect way to pre-order this release, and also to assist with the project in general. Rather than create stretch goals to add more to the already thorough introductory Bray Studios release, I've decided that extra funds will help as follows:
$5,600 to $6,250
Funds collected in this bracket will be earmarked for any unexpected costs which may arise during Bray collection production. This will also help to offset the credit card transaction and Kickstarter campaign fees that will be deducted out of the final payout.
$6,250 to $8,500
Funds collected in this bracket will go toward a second replication run of the original Cartoon Roots collection. Remaining inventory of the original run, which was created in December 2014, is currently low. Either way, Roots #1 will not be going out of print--especially since many of you will be receiving copies as part of your pledges. Overall, since my operation here works on an extremely tight shoestring budget, having these extra funds to guarantee a prompt second replication and continuing availability of the original Roots will be incredibly helpful.
Well, let's what happens if we get close to that!
