Hi everybody! HeroBook GM production is proceeding smoothly. I have a quick but exciting update for you today.
I received the first set of proofs from our printer last Thursday and have spent a few days going over them to make a couple of minor corrections to text alignment and colors. Up next is a quick round of digital proofs for the revised pages, and then it’s off to the printing press for manufacturing! I’m very excited to visit the printer again in the next couple of weeks to see the first covers come off the presses, as these proofs don’t demonstrate the gorgeous gloss-on-matte covers we’ve all been dying to see.
Here’s a couple of photos of the first set of proofs:
This means that we’re right on schedule. I’ve also begun the process of ordering all of our add-ons (pens, cloths, dice) to make sure they arrive in time for fulfillment. Here’s a recap of what the next few months looks like:
AUGUST: Final proofing, manufacturing begins, add-ons ordered.
SEPTEMBER-FEBRUARY: Manufacturing, packaging, add-ons arrive, shipping everything to distribution centers.
MARCH 2020: Shipping HeroBook GM to you!
