Fulfillment has begun!

I'm still alive I promise!

I know it's been a slow process and I apologize, it's all on me at this point. Handling the production myself is good in theory, but I failed to factor in the rigors of the rest of my day to day business that doesn't afford me as much time to print and cut the books as needed.

So far I'm not ready to relinquish the printing/cutting to anyone else, so it's all me!

But the good news is, books are beginning to ship this week (the first batch went in the mail today actually!).

I will be plugging away with the help of my trusty assistant Johnny until these are all out.

3 things are not ready to ship, but I will not hold any orders up while we wait, you will just get another package later:

  • Archival has been waiting on the special paper.
  • CGC (this will be sent off within the next few weeks)
  • Acrylic (I'm still waiting on one person to tell me what cover they want - if you're reading this, please reach out!)

I'm so grateful for all of your patience, I know it can be frustrating to wait, but I will get these out as quickly as possible now!

Be on the lookout for your tracking!

Printing Update
3 months ago – Mon, Mar 06, 2023 at 07:46:47 PM

Hey everyone!

I just wanted to give an update on the printing of the book.

Some of you may know that I have acquired my own printing press, most of you do not. I've been getting the process down and making sure I knew what I was doing and now I do.

I am outsourcing the foils, metals, and archivals, but the regular and virgin covers will be printed this week using this:

This was a big investment that will cut down on delivery time for our books going forward.

The end results are pretty amazing:

Those were just proofs, the real show starts this week.

Now that we have plenty of paper on hand we are ready to roll!

We will start prepping and shipping unsigned books this week and I'll be getting Joel and Francesca over to sign as soon as possible.

Thank you again for your patience, can't wait to get these out to you!

The book is done! Digital Distribution has begun!

The update you've all been waiting for!

Francesca has finalized the art for the interior pages and Joel is on to lettering! 

As soon as Joel is finished I'll get digital editions out and get this bad boy ready to print!

Happy Holidays and Art Update
5 months ago – Wed, Dec 28, 2022 at 12:27:31 AM

Hello all,

First of all, thank you all for your patience!

I hope everyone is having a great holiday season as we barrel down on 2023.

Sorry for the delay with updates, I was hoping to have the next one be art is done, but we're not quire there yet.

Currently Francesca has a few finishing touches to put on the art and then it will go off to lettering! 

As soon as it's lettered, I will have the digital copies out within a day.

We're hopefully looking at the first week of the new year and we'll go to print right after that!

Stay tuned, hopefully we'll have great news by the end of the week!
