Update N.3 | Buying Printing Machine
Here’s the 3rd report of our spontaneous and much-needed crowdfunding campaign.
Orders amount: 5,455 EUR
since September 22, which is incredible, thank you so much for your support!
A quick reminder: we faced an unexpected number of orders in September, and we urgently need to buy a second printing machine in our Parisian atelier. This will help us to reach two goals at once:
1. The second printing machine will help us to balance the workload and prolong life to the first printer that reached the peak of its capacity.
2. This will also optimise the time of fulfilling your orders as we know that you want to get your orders as soon as possible.
Going back to the croudfounding results, a quick explanation is needed in here:
Even though this amount is technically collected, we need to cover operational costs, including paper, current bills and salaries, so the real progress still stays at the 50% point.
The good news is that it’s usually easier to complete the second half of the journey, we’ll keep you updated.
We hope you aren’t too bored by all the details. It’s just that we want to stay as transparent as possible so that you can get the real sense of things.
And more good news to follow:
We mentioned that we’ll put an exclusive gift in all orders above 250 EUR.
But we didn’t say that we decided to introduce another gift in all orders above 120 EUR made after September 22 and before October 7.
And lastly, for those who want to support us right now but is not sure which Soumkine book to choose –
we have gift cards that you can buy now and use later without any expiration date.
Thank you once again for your support and have a great weekend,
and Soumkine team (Serge, Christina, Aian and Elisa).
