With just under three weeks to spare, we reached our funding goal of $12,500 on Kickstarter – which means that Furrow Books will become a reality! I can’t thank all of you who backed and shared our project and got us to where we are today. It’s amazing the amount of support we’ve received and knowing that these were once just notes on a piece of paper, but will now be produced and thousands of Furrow Books will be in the hands of hundreds of people across the world is almost unbelievable. Even though it’ll still be a few months before these will be in everyone’s hands, we’re still elated at where we are already with this project and can’t express our appreciation enough.
While we’ve reached our base funding goal, we have some great stretch goals now posted to help us make sure Furrow Books gets off on the right foot and can come out with new editions and products sooner. At the time of this writing, there’s still about two weeks remaining in the campaign and we’re on track to hit at least a couple of our stretch goals, so if you’re interested in Furrow Books or have already pledged and would like to increase your pledge to help us reach our stretch goals, there’s some time remaining to do so.
Our first stretch goal is to hit $16,500, at which point we’ll get some awesome die-cut stickers created and sent out to each backer receiving a physical reward. This is more of our way to say thank you for hitting this milestone along the way to our other stretch goals where we’ll produce some new products.
Our second stretch goal is to reach $19,500, at which time we’ll produce 2,500 large-size limited edition Furrow Books. These will be great counterparts to the pocket-size limited edition Furrow Books already available and will only be produced if we reach our stretch goal. They will be available for an additional $10 to any pledge (+$6/$4 for international backers.) Just like the pocket-size Founding Supporter Limited Edition, these beauties will only be available in this ultra limited quantity and each will be carefully numbered by hand.
Our third stretch goal is to hit $24,500, at which point we’ll produce three additional ruling cards for the pocket-size Furrow Books – that means six additional ruling options! After we hit our previous stretch goals, we’ll open up voting to the community where we’ll decide which rulings to create. Once unlocked, these three-packs will be available for an additional $4 to any pledge (+$2 for international backers).
Our final stretch goal is to hit $25,500, at which point we’ll be able to produce three additional ruling cards for the large-size Furrow Books – offering an additional six ruling options! Just like with the previous stretch goal, we’ll open up voting to the community as we get nearer to hitting this goal. Once unlocked, these three-packs will be available for an additional $5 to any pledge (+$2 for international backers.)
So with that, I just wanted to extend my sincere appreciation to all of those whom have supported this project so far and to all of those which will continue to support us as we finish out the campaign. We were recently voted the top project for the week of April 7th via CrowdSifter.co and were featured on their blog offering tips on producing successful crowdfunding videos, so feel free to check it out if you’re interested.
We’re excited to see where this campaign ends up and are always open to feedback from the community, so feel free to reach out if you have any comments or questions!
