The books meant for canadians have crossed the entire world, fought many ninjas and pirates on the way, to finally arrive at our studio… a bit, okay a lot battered. If you’re a long time reader, you may remember that this kind of postal mistreatment is the norm.
But gaze upon the content of these boxes! Flawlessly printed books with extra gloss on the lettering. (Not visible in the photos)
The binding issues was resolved, as you can see the pages open wide and easily. No panels or bubbles ended in the binding crease.
We’ve shipped the books to our canadian supporters today and Benny of Red giant(the distributor) shipped to the american and international supporters. My shipping cost, 110$. His, 612$. This is where the extra funds went, it’s to shipping and the packaging supplies. China’s air mail was about 610$, sea mail for the rest of the order is yet to be known but i suspect it’ll be 500$. Then there is rockethub’s cut. All put together, the profits from stores sales are being used to help cover the costs. This said, it’s better to get even than to be making a loss , which was the case for the prologue and chapter 1 commercial prints.
Those who took the original arts perk had their packages sent at the same time. I’ve brought some shipping tubes this time to ensure they don’t get damaged.
Two people asked for chapter 34 cover:
instead i’ve offered the second person to take the cover of the book. She accepted the offer:
Though that one will go out on monday. thankfully the last person whose address was missing(Kitsune) came in. No orders will be missed! On Benny’s side, all books were proffesionaly wrapped in plastic. He submitted some photos for you guys to see.
In the plastic bags:
He understand the frustration of waiting for months to have the books delivered and want to make sure there are absolutly no one displeased with the condition of the books when they arrive:
Also in a much more important news (To our cat overlords that is), we brought some used shelves yesterday to store excess from our work space. Each cat quickly claimed their new kingdoms.
As for kite, her desk is behind these, yes, she is boxed in. I will lower the food with a crane every day if she keep on providing you with pretty colors. The holes in the shelves? It’s for the air of course, she need to breath!
Joking aside, she made herself some kind of cubicle , she doesn’t like light much.
