I was so so nervous to start a Kickstarter project the first time around with the Islet playing cards. I kept saying to friends, "What if no one is interested? I'll look so dumb!" I set the amount pretty low, as low as I could to send in an order that I wanted to fund, and anxiously refused to check the totals. My intern Emily handled pretty much all of the project. She or Joseph would even tell me when I needed to check the messages. Joseph would look at the progress and fill me in on the total whether I wanted to know or not :)
This second time around, I really enjoyed the process! Emily still did a lot, and Joseph usually knew how many backers I'd gotten that day, while I had just a ball park number in mind. But, when my Surtex prints were finally in the mail, I could really take some time to be excited when I got a new backer or received a message. I'm so glad you guys liked the cards! I was so flattered that so many people who backed the cards the first time liked them in person so much that backed my next set! I placed a much larger order this time, and after a few inquiries, I am happy to say I can now fulfill wholesale orders!
Thanks so much to everyone who has ever ordered from my shop or backed my projects on Kickstarter! I have really enjoyed the process from idea->product->shipping->customer reaction so so much! Oh and I'd love to see your instagram photos of your cards if you take any!
