Project Update: Group Shoot is HAPPENING! 🥳 Let's unlock some more models!

Wow, we did it! Thank you so much to everyone for the support and the help yelling!! I'm very excited we're going to get to do this shoot. 

We're now working on Stretch Goals, the first of which is MY SUPER EXCITING invitation to Ruby AKA Fugitive Rabbit (who runs FatPhotoRef.com) and David the Arrow Bard AKA Blumineck

Ruby and David want to come, too!


If you help us get to $8k we'll be including these two most lovely humans in our epic group shoot!! The last time we did a big shoot we had four models so it will be fun to be able to expand to six. I already am bubbling with composition ideas!

Speaking of ideas...
As we proceed through the fundraising and booking for this event will be looking to you all for lots and lots of suggestions! If you have some multi-model themes, compositions, etc that you really want us to include please leave us some comments about them! We are going to be working from a big list during the multiday shoot and the more we can add to that list the better. 

This next stretch goal will also unlock some additional props for us which (FINGERS CROSSED) will include a pole rental for David to do his thing!!! 

I'm wildly excited to have the project funded and now I just need everyone's help to keep spreading the word to artists all over the world about this cool event. We have some more ideas to do if the funding continues past these goals so please keep helping us yell and we can make it even more awesome. 🥰✨

Project Update: Instructions for UV DTF Transfers & Fulfillment Status

Hey all!
I wanted to give a bit of an update on fulfillment, and more importantly I want to show you my written guide on how to apply UV-DTF Transfers: Link to my blog post
My post also links to a video that I recorded once, that can give you the rough idea on how to proceed but I still highly recommend reading the article as it contains everything I learned while making a ton of glass tumblers. I will still try to record a longer video where I show it in more detail, I have not found space to film though with all the fulfillment going on.

Fulfillment status: 
I've gotten around a third of all orders done. All pledges that are only flat items (Transfers, stickers etc) should have received a tracking number via e-mal by now.  (And I know that some Europeans have received theirs already! Woohoo)
If not contact me and I will give you yours! The big bulk of orders will happen today & on weekend, and I will then bring most of it out tomorrow or on Monday! 
The order of fulfillment is a bit chaotic, I'm trying to ship out one or two bigger packages a day while taking in small packages what I can. I currently rely on a helper to do these things too as I currently have Covid (best timing, I swear) but it's proceeding well overall! 

Cheers

Project Update: Fulfillment begins today & Fun Stats

Hey all!
Everything is prepared from my side to ship out orders, except that the reprints of some designs have still not arrived but I'm sure they will later this week. I'm trying to get everything done as soon as I can! The flat item orders should go out quickly if they don't contain designs that are awaiting restock/reprint, the glass cups will likely take me a whole week.

You should have gotten an e-mail with an invoice, but of course you all already paid it so no need for any action. This is more for my bookkeeping than anything else. 

What happens now:

- when your order ships, you will get a separate shipping notification which includes info on how to track. This will probably take me all week to do, and if your order contains some designs that are still awaiting reprint or restock, it depends on when that arrives.
- When you get your tracking number, please please please keep an eye on it! Losses and/or misrouted parcels can always happen so if you notice that your shipment is not showing activity after a certain point, contact me and I will ask my shipping company to look into it and I can replace parcels.
- When you receive your package and it looks damaged, take pictures of it before unboxing. If the contents are damaged, contact me as soon as possible and send as many clear pictures as you can.
- If everything arrives well - share a picture too and let me know if the products made you happy :D If you ordered a transfer, I would love to see what you used it on.

Also, I am working on guides on how to use the DTF transfers correctly, I will keep you posted :> There are a lot around the internet too which you can search, but I will try to make a detailed guide.

Some fun stats!

In case you wonder what the most popular designs were!
For the actual glass cups...
... 62 total were ordered and not dropped
... ZERO opted for the plain lid, everyone wanted the print :> (this makes me happy!)
... 38 of them were from the soda girl main series
... 11 were Gyokuro alone
... 8 were from the flower tea series
... 5 from classic tea series
... two who did not receive orders were Oolong and Lotus Tea
... the most popular one was Shirley Temple, barely beating Gyokuro with 12!
For the transfers...
... 43 total ordered and not dropped
... the popularity distribution was way more even!
... Gyokuro was the most popular at 6, followed by Elderflower and Ramune at 5 each!
... Every design was ordered at least twice!
For the magnetic bookmarks...
... Shirley Temple was most popular at 13, closely followed by Elderflower at 12
... Ramune and Herbs got 7 and 9 respectively!

Thank you very much!

Project Update: And we're finished!

Sup!

First of all thank you so so much, we managed to raise 12.8k Euro, which is exactly 3k more than I asked for to make this book real. I'm genuinely speechless, knowing that this is all just my own art and work. 
This also means the edition quantity will be 500 books, with 232 being sold via Backerkit. The rest will end up in my online shop or be sold via conventions in future. 

What comes next - 
Backerkit will start collecting payments and in the meantime I'll set up the Pledge Manager proper and set up surveys for shipping costs and all. 
Staff advised to send the surveys two weeks after end of the campaign. I'll make another update here before I do so, though.
On the production side, I'll contact my printer again. I want another set of proofs for the safety of my mind to know that the art comes out well. My choice of paper for the pages is kinda wild but I adore it a lot due to natural feel including real wood. Printer already said our last proofs were "excellent", so that's pretty nice. 
Once that is done and I have the money from Backerkit, I will order the books. As mentioned in the campaign, I was offered to be physically present when printing starts so I'll schedule that in as well.

I noticed there was one person among the backers who pledged a bit more, which also coincides exactly with what shipping would have been for their tier. Shipping will be charged extra later, so if this was a mistakenly assumed to be shipping and the person wants to fix it, please let me know.
In general, if there are any questions feel free to contact me, either via comment here or via my email [email protected]

Project Update: Bookmark design(s) and general update!


I've inked the bookmark(s) and will be scanning them soon! I liked them both so much that I finished each of them and you will receive two files to download and color. (But I'll make you choose just one for your printed color copy!) These two originals will be available for $150 each, let me know if you'd like to put dibs on either of them!

(The dice are in the photo because I finished inking these during a table top gaming session. We are plotting a giant battle with zombies and cannibals. As one does.)

I have another proof of the Companion Guidebook winging its way to me now and as soon as I've looked it over and done another typo pass, I will order the full batch of the Crowdfunded Edition! (This edition will have all the bonus cards in it, any future editions will not.) The stickers have already been shipped, and I will be finalizing the magnetic book box design and ordering the card decks, bonus cards, and mini guidebooks as soon as Backerkit clears my funds! (Just a few more days now...) Also on my action list are the thank you postcards, plus adding color to the bookmarks, and getting those printed, too. Watch for surveys soon, I'm climbing the learning curve with Backerkit to make them as easy for you as possible. I will need to set up shipping specific to countries and so far, I am preparing for Canada, UK, and Singapore. If you are in another country, please let me know so I can set you up!

So, there's lots left to do, but I want to assure you it's all being put in motion and there is a ton going on behind the scenes. <3 If you know anyone who missed the campaign and regrets their life choices, I have preorder available (at slightly higher prices than you scored during the campaign): https://a-unicorn-key.backerkit.com/hosted_preorders/

If you ever have any questions, feel free to shoot to them to me at [email protected]

Back to the grindstone!

Project Update: Surveys | Manufacturing | Shipping Times

Hello Party People! (Are we still party people after the party is over?)

As you may have noticed, we have sent the surveys out last week. Cant find your survey? You can use this link right here: https://limited-edition-78-tarot-10th-anniversary-deck-a-celebr.backerkit.com/

We were not planning on sending them so far away from our estimated shipping date, but due to the fact we had over $10,000.00 in dropped pledges we had no choice. This was the only way for many to fix their payment errors, so we released the survey a lot earlier than we wanted to. 

We will also have to charge credit cards for shipping and add ons earlier than we anticipated, so we have enough money to cover all the supplies we need, and get everything ready for fulfillment. As we’re sure you understand, we had to prioritise paying our wonderful artists and the printers ASAP, even with such a large shortfall.

Thank you so much for everyone who has filled out their survey and have added extra goodies to your pledge! Every single cent goes to running this project and paying our artists. So thank you.

Our entire mission is to bring income and an audience to our artists. It is why we are still running after all these years. Our passion will always be for our artists. 

Which brings me to the next thing. 

Calendars and Spread Books
We have to buy a minimum of 500 of each of these, there is no better price point (trust me, I have been looking!). We had thought they would be more popular, but we have a LOT left over. So we think it is only fair to split them among the artists involved so they can sell them and make money from them. We hope you are okay with this. Otherwise we would just have to recycle them, as they are designed to be Backerkit exclusives! It’s better the artists make as much as they can with them ❤ 

One last thing, we are running about two weeks behind on production, because both Trish and I had to learn a brand new software due to us having to rapidly leave all Adobe products after they stated very clearly they owned the rights to everyone’s work. 

We could not chance them having access to any of our work or artists work to train their AI, so we switched softwares and it’s been a bit of a learning curve. But we are making great progress and should only be about two weeks behind production, putting us in the first and second week of October to be delivering to you. 

That is all for now, soon we will be launching our pre-launch party for our Fall deck - 78 Tarot Nautical - The New Wave! This is a revisited, revamped, re-edited, brand new edition of our popular nautical theme. We are keeping some cards the same (20) and have commissioned 61 new artists! Wait until you see this art!!!!!!!!

Hope everyone is having a good day, night, wherever you may be in this universe.

As always, if you would like to speak with us directly you can always email us! We do not always see the comments and posts so emailing us is always the best! [email protected]

Stay safe. 

XOXO

Project Update: Production Pics! :o And a new campaign coming soon.

Hey, everyone!
Our pins are in production and I've gotten some updated pics. ^^
Most of these still need screenprinting and epoxy so they're not done yet, but I thought I would share some pics with you.






After a lot of deliberation, I've decided to run the 3rd Creatuary campaign on Kickstarter. You can join us there in August for Creatuary Companions, a mini pin campaign. ^^

There are going to be a LOT of mini pins to choose from and this campaign will be mix and match. 

Make sure to come check it out and sign up to be notified when we go live!

Project Update: Books FINALIZED! Backerkit surveys out by end of July!

Hello hello, wonderful backers to Paradise Lust! 

Hye here: It’s been a hot minute, and we hope you’re enjoying the summer sunshine as best you’re able. Before we bring any good news of great joy, we just want to say thank you for both your patience and support with this book as it's been through its development phase, as well as apologize for the delay in projected shipout. In between a litany of other freelance obligations and personal life events, we had to do a lot of back and forth with our printer for revisions and touch-ups to ensure Paradise Lust would be the best version of itself it could be. So, after a couple months of delays and production headaches, we’re so happy to say the books have finally been given the green to be bound, and will arrive at our fulfillment partner White Squirrel in Washington state in late August/early September at the latest! 

While we’ll have our advance copies here in the next couple weeks for a right and proper photo sesh, check out some sneak peeks from the unbound interior pages: 




Once we have word that the books are on the water (est. 3rd week of July), we’ll send out Backerkit surveys that’ll charge for the current USPS rates and offer anyone pledge add-ons should you want them. With the book embarking on its voyage, we’ll also have the updated and finalized PDF out for everyone as well: exclusive to backers until Backerkit fulfillment is complete!

Thank you all again for your support; we literally couldn’t have done it without you! We’re thrilled for you to see the final project and our advance copy photoshoot here in the coming couple of weeks. We’ll be in touch soon — rejoice and be glad! 👼✨

Best, 
Iris Jay, Nero Villagallos O’Reilly, & Hye Mardikian

Project Update: Fulfillment starts soon - Please Double-Check your Addresses!

Hey guys!
Your orders are now all locked and most of your cards have been charged shipping. A handful of your payments failed, so please review that. If you are experiencing trouble with using your card via Backerkit, please reach out to either their support or to me if you want to set up a different method to charge shipping. I will not be able to ship your order without collecting the second charge!

Everyone, please double check your addresses - they will lock in 48 hours. Check especially if you've given your apartment numbers if applicable, if your numbers and zip codes are correct and also if all info is in the correct field. All shipping info will be printed as entered, I will not be able to "spot obvious mistakes" since the address format is different in each country. 

The final prints have not arrived yet so I'm shipping the ones first where I still have enough prints left over. Starting from this weekend you will all be receiving your tracking numbers which will mostly be trackable through DHL, in some cases for US customers it will be trackable via USPS. I will make a separate update for the shipping process and what to look out for. 

Cheers
Averil
