NEWS : KEEPING THE BALL ALIVE KICK STARTER PROGRAM : 30 YEARS OF STERN PINBALL : MAY 2020 : PROGRESS DURING LOCKDOWN
Hello Kickstarter Backers!
We’re very sorry for our lack of updates over the past couple of months. As you can imagine we are trying to figure out our situation the way the rest of the world is, but we have made some good progress!
Last month we completed the book, down to the smallest Photoshop detail! We have had a few test readers and the response has been very positive. We also submitted all 250 pages of the book to Stern for final approval. We are also very excited to let you know that we have also completed the art and design of all of the Kickstarter incentives including t-shirts, jackets, and posters. We are very pleased with the work Zombie Yeti and our other artists have submitted!
Understandably Stern has been shut down during the pandemic, but they are looking at how to open their doors again safely and get production running. We expect to receive final approval from Stern on the completed book this month. Our printer has informed us they are open and ready to begin production of the book, and due to cancellations of other projects, the turnaround time for our book will be much faster! All incentives are ready for production.
Next steps: Once the book is approved by Stern, we will send out our backer surveys where you tell us your current address, t-shirt size, and any other relevant information. Then we start production, including printing the book, and all of the Kickstarter incentives! Once production is complete we will initiate the Backerkit program to help us ship everything to you!
We don’t have exact dates yet, but are in a position to move very quickly after we get approval.
We know this has been a long road, but the light at the end is now very bright and near!
Thank you all for your patience, Joe and Dameon, and the Paperflock team
