Shipping party!

This weekend was busy, with my wife and 9 kids all pitching in to help get these nearly 500 orders out to the post office.  Note that all US shipment will have been sent by Monday or Tuesday, so you should have them by next weekend or so.



Next up, all of the foreign orders... stay tuned! We're trying to get those out by next weekend.

Thanks for all of the great private messages... glad you all like what you see!

Check it out... we have product!



They turned-out great!  I'm very happy with the printing quality.  

We will start shipping this coming week and expect all shipments to be finished in the next two weeks (well, all except for those who have NOT answered their Backerkit survey at  We'll be mailing your books (if you ordered signed books) separately to take advantage of Media Mail rates, and those might arrive more slowly.  

Thanks again for your patience! I think you'll be pleased with the results.  If you haven't received your orders within three weeks or so, please contact me.  I'll send another update out after about three weeks to remind you.
