I've just launched a new Kickstarter project to fund a print run of A4 sized, numbered hex paper pads. The sheets will be litho printed with light grey (cool grey 5) 14mm tall hexes in a landscape format (giving 23 x 14 hexes per sheet). The pads will each have 25 sheets glued along one edge and be attached to a backing card. Here's a link to the project page: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1730454032/a4-numbered-hex-pad
The Pad of Hexagonal Content Kickstarter is done and backers have just started receiving their rewards. Here's a photo of the finished pads.
For my next Kickstarter I will be printing some A4 hex pads with numbered, larger (14mm high) hexes. The campaign has been approved by Kickstarter and is almost ready to launch. The one thing I'm still undecided on is whether to print the pads portrait or landscape. The default format I've created is portrait which gives 15 hexes across by 20 down. If I switch to landscape they would be 22 hexes across by 15 down. Has anybody got any thoughts or preferences?
As there were no add-on options in my most recent Kickstarter campaign, I've created a discount code which gives 10% off everything on my site. www.squarehex.co.uk The code is kick5 and is good for multiple uses until 31st December. Please feel free to share the code as I'll also be posting it selected forums in the next few days anyway. I'll be posting out the rewards from the Hex Pad Kickstarter next week. One of the fun little extras that was a Stretch Goal in the campaign is the Symbol Card shown below. If you missed the Kickstarter the pads will be added to the site as soon as the last backer reward from the Kickstarter has been posted.
Our Kickstarter finished on Sunday at a healthy 536% of the original goal. As Kickstarter takes 2 weeks to transfer the campaign funds, I'm happy to accept latecomers until Monday 18th November. If you'd like to join up simply message me via Kickstarter, or send me an email (oubliettemagazine AT yahoo.co.uk).
The Pad of Hexagonal Content Kickstarter is entering its final hours and finishes at 9pm GMT tonight. We've had a strong influx of backers of the last few days and have two open Stretch Goals still to get. I've also added another batch of the highly popular Box of Trick Rewards.
All 10 of the Bag of Tricks #1 rewards were snapped up in the first 24 hours of my Kickstarter. I've now sourced some more Bags (pencil cases) and am proud to announce the Bag of Tricks #2 reward. It casts the same as the first one and includes the following:
Fabric zipped cream coloured
8 A7 hex pads
Lined A7 notepad
6 fineliner pens (1 black and 5 assorted colours)
Folding ruler with fixed angle positions (random colour provided)
