The calendar's have reached the Fulfillrite warehouse in New Jersey and are now shipping out! I've heard that some folks have gotten shipping notifications already, but don't worry yet if you haven't. You should in the next day or two!
At various points in this process, I worried that we got too late of a start and that there would be unforeseen delays in creation, manufacture, and shipping. But everything really came together as planned, and you'll all have your calendars in plenty of time for 2020!
Thank you again to all our backers and pre-orderers. You made this happen! And we hope you will enjoy all the facts you're about to learn in the new year.

P.S. Today is Jonathan's birthday - make sure to wish him a good one!

Heya backers! I know there's been some silence from us recently, but rest assured - that's a good thing! The calendars are all printed, bound, and boxed at this point, and are currently in transit from our manufacturer in China to the USA. This part takes a while, since they're being shipped by boat, but once they reach reach the west coast, they'll be transferred to FedEx and delivered at our fulfillment center in New Jersey. That should happen by the end of the month, at which point, everything will be boxed up and start shipping out to you! You'll receive individual shipping notices with tracking info once your calendar(s) leave the fulfillment center.
Thanks again for backing!

Status Update and a Backerkit Survey Reminder!

Hey folks! I know it's been a while; there has not been much to update you on -- but that's a good thing! Everything is moving along smoothly, its just doing that smooth moving behind-the-scenes, with our manufacturer in China and with Backerkit handling our surveys and pre-orders.
Speaking of Backerkit... please remember to fill out the surveys that have been sent out to you. They are legitimate and are needed for us to confirm where your calendars should be shipped come November. As of right now, there are about 30 people who backed the Kickstarter, but have not yet filled out the survey. If you're not sure if you're one of them (or if you've lost your survey link), feel free to message us through Kickstarter and we can help you.
We also still have about 20 extra calendars left to sell. If you're filling out your survey, you can choose to add one on at that point. Or you can let your friends know that it's not too late to grab a copy (but it will be soon!). Triviacalendar.net now redirects to our pre-order page on Backerkit.
More updates to come. Thanks again for helping us make this happen!

Let's Keep This Party Going!

Jonathan and I are back from Trivia Nationals, and we've now received the campaign funds from Kickstarter, so our pace is starting to pick back up again here in calendar-land (certain things could not happen until after all that sweet sweet calendar money made its way to our bank account). What's that mean, exactly?
First off, backer surveys will start going out in the next day or two. These will be emailed to you, coming from Backerkit, so please don't be confused or worried. It's really us! At this point, you'll have the chance to confirm your address, and, if you want, add more funds to order more calendars. Don't know where you'll be living in November? No worries! You can update that info later.
It also means that it's just about time for us to get our files finalized and ready to go to print! This is probably the most nerve-wracking part of the whole thing for me, where I worry that the second I hit "confirm order," I'll notice an obvious typo on page one. (Which is not actually a realistic worry, as it has been meticulously proofread by multiple parties [my husband Matt and Katie Cauley].)
In the meantime, we also have a preorder store open for those that missed out on the Kickstarter! If you know someone that wanted to buy a calendar but missed the campaign window, be sure to send them to http://www.triviacalendar.net, which now redirects to the preorder page.

Success! Now, what's next?

We did it! Thank you to all the backers for helping us make this a success. We're so excited to see our idea become a real tangible object that will be going out to all of you.
So, what happens now?
Now we really kick things into gear on our end! The calendar content is already written and laid out - we're just tweaking a few design elements based on the sample we received, and having it proofread to make sure the content is both well-written AND typo-free.
All Kickstarter backers will be receiving a survey link (via Backerkit) in the next week or two, which you'll use to confirm your shipping information. You'll also have the ability to purchase more calendars if you've decided you'd like more.
We'll also be setting up a pre-order store through Backerkit, which will provide a second chance for anyone who missed the Kickstarter window. This will be open through the middle of August.
And then, once pre-orders have closed and we've received our funds from Kickstarter, we'll be making The Big Order from our manufacturer in China. At that point, it will just be a matter of waiting for the calendars to be printed, shipped, and then distributed by our fulfillment partners. Then, in November, your calendars should start making their way to your homes!
Our aim is to be completely transparent and upfront with you. So if anything changes with our timeline, we'll keep you posted.
Oh also, Trivia Nationals!
Jonathan and I (Katie) will be at Trivia Nationals in Las Vegas in August. If you're also going, be sure to say hi! Trivial Warfare will be hosting several events. And if you see me (Katie), let me know that you backed the Kickstarter, and I'll hook you up with some Inkling swag!
Thanks again for all the support so far! 2020 is looking great already!
